About Me

My photo
Birmingham, United Kingdom
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 D + ' Peachy Snake-Skin '

Hey ladies

Here's a quick post from me today as I'm feeling unwell =(.

Here's my interpretation of the snakeskin manicure =). 

(Picture with Flash).

For this Manicure I used:

- Beauty UK - Peach Melba.
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
- Konad Special Black Polish.

(Picture with Flash).

This manicure isn't meant to be 'Stamp' perfect and I love the overall effect =).

I'm a total sucker for pastel nail varnishes and I found that Beauty UK's Peach Melba was a perfect peach for my skin tone.

The application was brilliant - i think i may have to invest in more bottles of polish from Beauty UK - i love every single bottle of polish from them i own so far =).

(Picture with Without-Flash).

I was shocked to research that some people pay £185.00 ($300.00)
for a 'real' snakeskin manicure - I don't know how I feel about 'real' snakeskin 
manicures ... what do you guys think about this?

Here is the the stunning XL D plate

Thanks for reading =)

XL A - ' A Sparkly Jig-Saw Puzzle '

Hey ladies!

I woke up this morning and decided to do a crazy holo manicure =).

I've always wanted to use the Jig-Saw puzzle pattern on my XL Plate A ... But I just never knew what base colour to put it on. 
Here's what I came up with:

(Picture with Flash).

For this manicure i used:

- Milani's - Hi-Tech (As the base colour) 
- With... Milani's Cyberspace and Digital.
- Konad Special Black Polish. 

(Picture with Flash).

Unfortunately my camera doesn't want to capture this manicure properly!! ...But I'm loving my Shiny *Sparkly* nails =).

(Picture Without - Flash).

I started my manicure with Hi-tech (the picture below) as my base colour. 

(Picture Without - Flash).

I then dabbed patches of Milani's Cyberspace and Digital onto the base to give my nails a 'Petrol Rainbow' appearance (See below).


Overall - I'm happy with how this manicure turned out =).

(Picture Flash).

Here is the lovely XL A plate =).


Have fun reading =)
