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! =)

Disney Fauxnad + Mickey Mouse!

Hey Ladies

Sorry for my lack of posts this week .. I've spent what feels like an eternity in bed =-/ .

I think Ive finally shifted this nasty Flu *Bounce*.. Even though it totally ruined my birthday which was yesterday =-/.

So now I'm feeling 80% better .... I feel its time i showed you my Mickey Mouse Manicure!.

For this i used:

- Disney Fauxnad CG-06.
- W7's Neon Yellow & Neon Pink.
- BM20 ( For the Background ).
- Models Own - Jade stone ( For the Background ).
- Konad Special Purple Pastel Polish ( For the Background ).
- Essence Nail Art Black Stampy Polish.

This was my first time using the W7 polishes and i am very happy with the result!.

When i first got my W7 polishes in the post - i actually thought someone had sent me OPI's by error - as the bottle is very similar.

The consistency of these polishes were perfect. With some Neon colors I've used in the past I've found them to be gloppy or streaky - however I didn't have that experience (luckily) with these polishes.

i will defiantly have to invest in more of the range in the future =), I brought them from Here.

I'm so Happy with How this turned out! . .I love EVERYTHING Disney related!

I decided to use the BM20 plate at the last minute - I'm so glad i used it - as it adds some extra 'Disney magic' to this Manicure.

Here is a 'Before' i stamped Mickey on my nails picture.

I got this Disney Fauxnad from a swap with the lovely Thriszha..but I spent ages looking for it! (too long to dare mentioning ) - As it's extremely rare.

However.. Hope is not all lost - I have found a similar plate on a Ebay from Merci My Darling (See plate below).

I've used this Ebay shop in the past to get those Designer *Yummy* plates - That everyone loved!.

If you get a chance check out Tracey's shop, Its a Gigantic treasure chest- full of loads of interesting nail plates, nail art essentials & cosmetics!.

  1. Happy belated birthday!!! Pity you had to spend it in bed. Not good.

    You always make the craziest designs! How long did this one take? Do you do it in stages or in one go, the same day?

    Btw, my birthday's this month too.

  2. Such an adorable mani! Mickey is sooo cute!

  3. @ marox79

    Aww thank you sweetie!

    Im very lucky to have a caring boyfriend- he nursed me back to health =)

    Lol - i hope thats a compliment =-P

    Erm, the longest bit of this manicure,was waiting for the base polish to dry - other then that, i stamped the base with BM20 then the mickey image - ...It didn't take that long at all ...less then 30 mins, i really didn't time it =/


  4. @ mrsrexy

    Aww thank you hunny - though im in love with your current mani!


  5. Happy belated birthday!

  7. super cute!! love the colors they scream disney!

  8. I hope you will take a part in my Disney Nail Art Contest ;)
    You will, right? :>

  9. @Sarahlouise: Yes, I meant it as a compliment.

    I thought it would have taken hours, or even that you'd done it in stages in different days.
    I'm at my parents right now for the holidays and didn't bring any stamping gear, but I definitely have to keep on practising.

  10. these are lovely stamp art!! I love what you did.

  11. @ Manicured Monkey

    Aww thank you hunny! thats the effect i was hoping for - so you've made me smile! =)))

    /Mega hugs

  12. @ Orlica

    Emailed you hunny!...i did have your competition noted down, but i cant find my blame being ill =-/


  13. @ marox79

    LOL next manicure, will be a little toned down, colour-wise that is lol

    Wow - im glad it gives that impression!, i just tend to stamp without even thinking now days - your get there hunny! im keeping a eye on your progression dw, i have to say im loving your recent posts =)


  14. @Sarahlouise: Thanks sweetie. I'll keep an eye on next manis then.

    Feel free to critisize my feeble attempts at fauxnading and provide as much advice as you want.
    Which posts did you love?

  15. @ marox79

    I hate being too critical =-/ just too nice to do that. But if i feel something will help you - dont worry ill let you know =)

    But im loving all the stamping im seeing from your blog, and i love that your introducing me to a lot of polishes that i want!....which is a bad thing - but also good , because technically my mother buys it for me when shes abroad....I must give her my new list lol. Mom if your reading this..yes im 25-but you love me ;-)


  16. @Sarahlouise: It's both a blessing and a curse that your mum travels so much and can get you some of your lemmings. Curse because you only have 10 fingers... well, you could do some stamping in your pedis. It cracks me me when I see it, but I think I'd only try it in my big toes. The other ones are waaay too small and at an odd angle. Mmm, I'll have to try toe stamping.

    Btw, we might go to Germany again in June, but we're not sure yet.
    Feel free to suggest any swatches from my limited stash.

  17. Happy belated birthday!! This is such a fun combination of neons with a classic image!! So cute!

  18. Happy belated birthday!! My birthday was yesterday as well, I turned the big 30!! I too was sick in bed all day, definitely not the way to spend your birthday, no fun at all!!

  19. @ marox79

    Ive never tried stamping on my one of those people, that will paint my toe nails, but...thats as far as it goes, well that an trimming and occasionally ex-foliating and putting on moisture socks lol.

    OOoo i definitely will =) thanks for the heads up

    /Mega hugs!
