There’s a great debate as to which is better: metal ‘nad scrapers or plastic ‘nad scraper. Konad was the pioneer of the metal scraper. While fauxnad quickly followed with plastic (perhaps this is because production is cheaper on the plastic scraper)?
Performance: which works better? While this information is scientifically inconclusive, they both work equally well. Naturally, if you end up buying a Konad kit or something, you’ll end up with a metal scraper. For those who started with the Fauxnad route, then you’ll probably end up with a plastic scraper. One complaint about the metal scrapers is that it scratches the plate. Personally, I don’t really care about scratching since I don’t plan on framing my ‘nad plates. If you care about your plates getting scratched, then metal might not be for you.
Where do I buy a plastic scraper? You can get them from KonadNailArt.com. Before you fun off and shop, keep in mind that a plastic membership card (gym membership, library card, CVS card, Safeway card, etc) would work just fine! Just cut it up in a small piece and you’re good to go. Oooh… if you don’t want to cut, a good alternative is the keychain version of the Beauty Insider cards may work (let me know how that works if you use that).
Which one do you use? I use a metal one since that’s what I started out with, and it’s not going bad yet so why switch? If my metal one breaks or something, I may go plastic.
