Trouble having polish stick to Konad stamper????

All of a sudden the polish would not stick into the design only a little and wouldn't go to the stamp hardly at all. I tried two different times. I thought maybe it was the design so tried another. Same thing. I then realized I had just finished a bottle of Acetone and was using another kind. The first Acetone I used that I did great with was from Walmart and this one was from Sally's. I read the label again and DUH it said for artificial nails. Apparently it has a moisturizing ingredient of some sort. I noticed it was slippery. I haven't been to town in weeks to get some of the Walmart kind to see if it was that but my husband said he had some Acetone he got to remove gunk from a truck head years ago. Same as what we buy I guess because it worked. I used the same design so I would know for sure. I have missed Konading so much.
I tried it on a mani that I am going to take off anyway.
Just thought you all may want to know that are having problems with polish adhering to the stamp.

This is fauxnad plate M01!

WOWZA! Love my b*tchin red nails. :)

Hey, hey, hey! Don't cha just love red nail polish?
I only have six Zoya Nail polishes. Two I got in a swap and four I just received in the mail not too long ago.
This is Zoya "MAX". Cool name for it eh?
I did three coats. No konading until I get some different acetone to wipe the plate and stamper off. I apparently got the wrong kind and the polish won't stick to the stamper very well.
Spring is coming!!!

I used China Glaze "Happy Go Lucky" for the base. I actually like this better than with the added konading. :) Albert said they looked like bananas and so did Drew. Men!!!! GEESH!

Hopefully one day I'll do a better job with the application. :)

I love my Pink Ott Light! :)

The konading is from plate M8.
