Konad nails attempt 1

Konad attempt one? Aren't you on about 30 or so you say? Well it was attempt 1 for my 81 year old grandmother!!!!!!!! She insisted I only get a hand photo but that you could see that she has on pop's ring. All you people who say "Oh I can't do that. I have no skill" My 81 year old gram who has the shakes a little (cancer drugs) can do it than so can you. She says "OH it's so easy and won't people be jealous of my pretty nails"

Yes gram, yes they will.

I am ordering her, her very own kit. She wants the hounds tooth and argyle plates because she is far cooler than anyone I know. I had brought subtle polish colors thinking I would ease her into it. NOPE she wants me to bring the teal and purples and aquas next time!

go gram!
i think the whole konad set is going to have to go on my Want list!

you buy the pieces individually and it's $6 bucks a plate and $6 for a stamper and scraper. You can get started for $12. There are no discounts anymore the main company pulled all resellers coupon rights.

I just have to say that your gram is awesome!

I'd like to second D'Rae and add a few more !!!!! I think the next few weeks will be so hard for everyone but also exactly what your Pop would have liked - for you to rally around your Gram and spend time with her.

So pretty! And this might sound weird but...your grandma has really lovely hands.

hillary said...

That's not weird at all! I love and am proud of her hands. She's always had gorgeous nails.

Your gram sounds like one stylin lady! Her nails look lovely. It reminds me of the way mine used to keep hers.

Your gram is so cool!

I've been desperately wanting the Konad stamping thinger since you started posting about it, but now that I've sourced an Australian seller I'm kind of overwhelmed by all the designs and can't choose which plates I want (plus I also have no money lol).

That's the spirit :o)

you are the best granddaughter ever (with the best grandma too!). I cannot wait to see the next bolder attempt!
