Konad (Fauxnad) haul from Hong Kong

You can click all pics in this post to enlarge them.

Check out this awesome fake Konad (Fauxnad) haul from ebay seller
beauties_factory. I got a nail stamping machine (useless, I think I broke it already):


Notice where it says: "Give You A Creation Of Freedom And Great Satisfaction!"? I think that sounds pretty hot.

The kit included 6 image plates (including the famous Hello Kitty plate):

and 7 polishes (one of them is clear so it's probably a top coat):


Notice that the text on the polishes say: "NAIL COLORS MACHINE - Specify of the Nail Polish". That's gotta mean it's good! The box also says: "Nail colored drawing machine - Appropriative nail polish". Does it get any more awesome than that? I don't think so.

There is also an instruction booklet. If you enjoyed the above quotes, you WILL love it. All of that for £8.99.

I also got 10 image plates for £7.99:


Before you run out to ebay to buy this wonderful kit, a word of warning: I've heard about other people who bought the stamping set, but didn't recieve the Hello Kitty plate and had to go through paypal to get it. I can understand why conversation might be a little difficult. This is the e-mail I got from ebay after winning the auctions (click to enlarge):

I was pretty much like ?????????

Oohs cute plates! Are they hard to use?

Steph said...

Oooh, cute plates! I've been wanting to try Konad for the longest time now. Are they user friendly?

I went to the website and they don't have the 6 plates 7 polishes kit. They only have the 10 plate kits. Did not see the hello kitty on the 10 plate kits. Should I keep checking back to see if they get more in?

I think that's because it might be in Mandarin or some alternative script that can't be read unless you enable the language. It could easily be Japanese or some other Asian script. I'd be glad to help you with it. -Geraldine

Hi girls :)

Nixxy & Steph: huggles to you both :)

Lydia: They are actually easier than the real Konad plates because the designs are deeper and a little less detailed.

Steph: I'd love to see what you can do with them. They take a bit of practice, but after a few times it gets pretty easy.

rmcandlelight: To get the 6 plates with Hello Kitty you need to buy the stamping machine. If you do a search for "NAIL ART PRINTING MACHINE + POLISH VARNISH #81" all the auctions should pop up. There's around 10 of them at the moment.

If that doesn't work, here are a couple of the auction numbers: 270337891757, 270337990596, 300289442589, 280309041674

Feel free to e-mail me ( jinnzor AT gmail DOT com ) if you need any help finding them.

Anon: I think so too hehe. ebay Hong Kong probably sent out the e-mail in Mandarin (not quite sure what languages are spoken in Hong Kong) and my computer/e-mail program wasn't able to translate it. Thank you for offering a translation. That is very kind of you :)
