Yes, that is right, we actually got one of our plates printed in Konad factory. As far as we know, this is the first Konad plate designed by Konad fans.
We have been really excited about this for a long time and now we can finally tell you all about it. Thank you all for your patience, you have been waiting such a long time!
I guess you all remember how our project got stopped because of the Konad patent. Konad offered us an opportunity to order the plates from them, but the minimum order was way too big for us. They even offered us a special discount, but still the amount of plates was so big that is was out of reach for hobbyists like us. For a while we thought that nothing would ever get published. But things changes when Konad UK told us that they wanted to help us and publish one of our plates. We ended up selecting the Charming Nails plate, as it is really versatile and beautiful and it was also already shown to you.
I apologise for all of you who have been designing with us and did not get your ideas out now. Special apology for The Nailphile, whose plate is wonderful, exotic and really ought to have been published too. But we do not know what future brings to us. Maybe, maybe if this plates proves to be really successful, there might be similar opportunities in the future.
The plate will be sold by Konad retailers, but we were told that initially it is to be used in promotion. So we do not know which conditions they will have for getting it and we do not know which retailers are going to have it. We will tell you when we know more and of course you can ask from your local Konad shop if they will have this plate.
To celebrate, we have a giveaway - 3 pieces of the new plate. To take part, leave a comment to this post. If you cannot be contacted through your profile, leave also your email. I will skip any anonymous comments that do not have contact information. One entry per person.
We will draw the 3 winners at 7th of September 2011.
Edit: Charming Nails has some manicure ideas for her plate in her blog, check them out here. In the same posting there is a link to the Cesarsshops sales page for this plate, and Charming Nails says that the plate will be available there soon. Great! Thanks for the info, CN.
Edit 25th of Aug. Spellbinding Nails and Apaixonadas por Konad are featuring our plate in their blogs. Thank you so much, Sarahlouise and Adriele!
