Hey - i am 26 years old and i live in the Uk. I discovered Konad around October 2010 , and my bank balance has yet to recover. i have since collected a very large collection of fauxnads and Konads. the goal for this blog is simple - (1) Further explore the world of nail art stamping. (2) To keep a record of all my experiments with stamping. (3) To show you the potential each stamp has. (4) To show you that you don't have to be a 'Konading' expert to have fun! =)

BM19 + 'A Garden Adventure! '

Hey ladies!

i want to start this post by thanking you all for following my blog, it really means a lot to me =).

I am so excited and nervous to have over 100 followers ! ...So in honor of my 102 followers - i will be doing a give away to thank you guys!, i placed my order for the items this morning.. I should get them within a week or so then I'll start my *First give away post =)) *.

Since i started this blog...I've got to say I'm just amazed by the fact that there are so many talented and kind people out there! i love you all!... OK enough with me being all emotional...lets move onto some stamping and some Hot news!!

Whilst travelling to work on Friday i had a great idea... I'm 100% sure this has been done before so i wont even try to claim it as my idea! ...but since doing my bumble bee manicure...I've always wanted to do another insect manicure!

So i decided to swatch my BM19 plate...and this is what i came up with:

(Image can be enlarged)

Ive never used 2 colours together whilst stamping 1 this opened my eyes to how easy .. yet effective this actually is! =).

For this Manicure i used:

- Barry M Nail paints Spring Green and Matte White.
- BM13 for the ladybug design.
-BM19 for the leaves.
China Glaze- Gussied Up Green , for the leaves.
-Konad Special Red and Black Polish.

It didn't turn out how i imaged it to be...but i still love it!.

**Oo My big news for today is *
