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! =)

HB01 + ' 'Teddy Bears! '

Hey Ladies

I was looking through my image plates this morning and my HB01 plate just stole my attention immediately.

I love how cute it is...and I'm eager to try these new plates out.

Before you read any further...can i just ramble on by saying how 'Super impressed i am with these plates...I think its love - they are JUST prefect'.

Here's what i came up with:

For this manicure i used:

- La Femme Beauty - Lime cream.
- La Femme Beauty - Ice Blue Cream.
- Rimmel London - Matte Finish.
- Essence Black Nail Art Stampy Polish.
- Some Rhinestones.

...I do love pastel colours with a Matte Finish =).

Edit* Ive been asked where i brought these polishes - You can buy the polishes i used from here

Here is the 'Fantastic' HB01 'Teddy Bear' Plate!.

For swatching this plate i used:

- San San - Red Gleam Polish.
- Konad Special White Polish.

Ive tried to capture each swatch picture with and without flash to attempt to show you each image .

*Apologies for any sloppy applications of polish! - i was just to eager to swatch this plate!*

Zomg how cute is every image!...i love all these bears!!!..especially the bear holding the heart -So Cute!.

I'm so amazed with how good this plate is.

The engravings are perfect - and each image stamped perfectly =).

I love all the individual details on each bear...And...did i tell you all that i love this plate lol!

I love the honey bear!.

I was hesitant about getting these plates because a lot of the reviews mention that each image is too large- however, I didn't find these images too big for my fingers .

  1. We're very prolific today, aren't we?

    I like the bear designs, they remind me of a series I used to watch as a kid, looongg ago, 'Los Osos Amorosos =The loving Bears + or -'
    I liked it better over the purple polish. I don't think I could pull off the neon green and blue.

    Thanks hunny, i was going to do it over purple, but i thought nah 'you used purple yesterday-lets go crazy lol'.


  3. @ Paulina

    I know they really are sweet! i loved this plate. The bears are so adorable!


  4. @Sarahlouise: You're not afraid of flashy nails, I am, ;)
    I'd heard about LaFemme blushes from Goss on YT, but had never seen any nail polish swatches on the net.

  5. @ marox79

    Teehee i love my bold colours on days where i feel energized and happy! =). I got these La femmes from - it was 9 for £5.00 so far ive loved them all!


  6. @Sarahlouise: 9 polishes for 5 pounds?? That's a bargain.
    I tend to go for work appropiate colours, including vampy shades.

  7. @ Toesthattwinkle!

    I know- it was so hard to choose!-there all adorable!


  8. @ Silence is Loud

    Aww thank you sweetie!

  10. @ marox79

    I know - i thought lets try them...and i love each colour ive got to date! they've got loads of colours inc vampy and pastels and much more! always on the look out for a new brand of polish ive never tried before =)


  11. @Sarahlouise: I like trying out new brands myself, though I try to buy just a couple of them, enough to form an opinion but not go crazy in case they're crap. Well, my nail polish collection is not huge by any means, though definitely larger than say, a year ago.

  12. Hi! I love the Teddy Bear with the big ribbon! :)

  13. Those stamps are so cute and that lime green WINS! :)

  14. @ marox79
