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! =)

XL B + ' A Pastel Peacock Surprise '

Hey Ladies 

I'm nearly fully got up to date on my queued posts!  /Cheer!

Here's a manicure i did on Saturday =).

For this Manicure I used :

- Stamping plate - XL B.
- La Femme Beauty's Lilac Cream , Pink Cream , 
Baby Blue & Blue Cream (In the order they appear)
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
- Konad Special Black Polish.

I really liked this manicure, It was pretty, colourful and simple!.

Although I have recently brought a new Konad Special White Polish. 
I decided to buy another in a awesome deal i found on Ebay with a store called a-viva.
The deal also involved me getting a Konad Special Pink Pastel polish - both for a nice *Happy Price*...I cant wait to test the Pink Special Stamping polish out...Maybe on black base colour? .

Here is my *Super* Chocolate-Fudge cake i baked this weekend ....i was so impressed by how  it turned out - I just had to simply share pictures with you guys.

I stopped baking 4 years ago after giving my boyfriend food poisoning with pasta bake... DON'T ASK...i simply don't know how it happened =S.

However...I'm attempting to rebuild my *cooking confidence* skills back up again...hence all the baking pictures =).

If you haven't already entered my *500  giveaway* you can do so by clicking here 
The closing date is the 19.06.2011.

Thanks for reading!




  1. I love the mani. Beautiful design and looks fun with the different colours you used.

    Nice cake. Sorry about the bad experience with baking in the past. We've all cooked something pretty much unedible at some point.
    Keep practising and you'll soon become a baking queen, just like you're a master fauxnader.
    We once food-poisoned my sister... on purpose. We thought her allergy to mushrooms was a figment of her imagination, that she somehow had started disliking them and decided to carry out a little experiment. When she was hugging the toilet seat like three hours later we confessed. She didn't have very nice words to us, poor thing.

  2. Love the mani and the pattern :D

    As for the cake, it looks really delicious! :) sorry about the incident with the pasta baking..

  3. Your nails are so pretty!
    I love chocolate cake :)

  4. Very cute, this stamp will not work for me :( I cannot pick up the image..
