What is a Fauxnadicure?
The brand that originally came up with the idea of nail stamping is Konad, which stands for Korean Nail Art Design. There are, however, many other manufacturers that started making the same thing but of different designs. From then on, these are called Fauxnad. In the nail polish blogging community, a manicure done with Konad is often called a Konadicure. Hence, if a manicure is done with Fauxnad then it will be called a Fauxnadicure 😀

I love how fuss-free a Fauxnadicure is. This is really simple to do if you have all the tools (stamper, scraper, remover, cotton pads) and polishes that are opaque. For example, here I’m using China Glaze Millenium to stamp. It is a one-coater chrome polish that is very opaque, yet a little hard to work with because it dries lightning-fast. In nail stamping, the key to succeeding is to work really fast before the polish dries up on the plate or on the stamper (:
It is difficult for me to explain verbally on how to execute this but IF in future I do get enough requests, I may do up a tutorial on how to do a Konadicure/Fauxnadicure 🙂
P.S Vicks I know you’ll be reading this and I know you’d love this so much! Hahaha!!
