Manicurist Sophy Robson designed the following nail art for UK Elle magazine (the January 2010 issue):

The £50 pound was done by transfering the paper onto the nail slightly wet so it moulds into shape. I use glue to stick it and then I put a layer of clear acrylic on top.
Most of the logos can be found on the internet (ebay) trust me! I use acrylic paint to make them coloured.
The nails were originally going to appear (in the magazine) as the following, before UK Elle asked her to resize & reshape them:

Konad Nail Art Stamping
Konad 0.jpg
Source: scrangie.com

Konad's a company that manufactures nail art stamping supplies. Once you get the hang of it, the stamping is quick and easy to do.

To transfer the designs to your nails you need at least a Konad stamper, scraper, and image plate(s). Konad created "special" nail polishes for the stamping, but most heavily-pigmented nail polishes (of any brand) work as well.

Image plate designs:

How to stamp your nails:


Where to buy Konad:
wowsocool.com and ocnailart.com carry Konad. There are several 30% off codes around for both sites... including wowsocool30 (for wowsocool.com of course :p) and scrangie for ocnailart.com.

Nihrida is always wearing something special.
I prefer plain manicure, but there are also few konadicures I like.










Ohhh!

I used to use nail stickers and rhinestones in my teens and I'm becoming interested in nail art again. I don't know if I should take a stab at actually painting something on them myself. Can you also get stencils?

^ Yes, you can get/buy stencils.

In addition to stenciling, you may be interested in nail art stamping. (Most of the nail art in the above posts were done by stamping).
