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! =)

SdP 3 + ' Care Bear's !!! '

Hey Ladies!

When i was growing up - I loved the care bears!!!.
  
I had all the movie's, a lunch box , a lamp , a rug , all the cuddly toys , the figure toys, the bed spread -  I basically had 'Care Bear' everything!.

I was the biggest care bear fan ever basically!.

So today I dedicate this manicure to all your child hoods.

Does this manicure take you back to your childhood or what!...I 
know it defiantly takes me back =).

(Picture with Flash)

I started this manicure by applying 2 coats of Beauty UK's Jade (See below).
I then stamped 1 Care bear image on each nail - using Konad Special Black Polish.

(Picture with Flash)

I then used a Red, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple fraulein 38 Nail Art Liner, to create a 
rainbow effect (See below) - I then added some colourful rhinestones to complete the 
manicure =).

See below for a random experiment - I decided to paint the bears after stamping it =)...Not my best efforts...But I still had fun filling the gaps in!.

The image is based on tenderheart bear (See below)

The Charming Nails Q1 plate!

Hey Ladies

I wanted to share some exciting news with you all =).

For those that follow Nail Artists United 
You may have read that their project to produce some plates - that they had designed , was put on hold - because of the Konad Patent.

.....
However
.... 

Konad UK has stepped in to help the project !!! - by publishing one of the plates that they produced.

2 bloggers joined forces with Nail Artists United  - to help them design some plates. 
The bloggers were the lovely Charming Nails and The Nailphile .

Charming Nails plate was selected as the plate to be produced  - as it was absolutely stunning and shown in previous posts , when it was swatched - Unfortunately we never got to see what The Nailphile produced... but i can bet it was another beautiful  plate.

....and enough blabbering from me

Behold  



I am so excited about this plate ...not only because its the only konad plate designed by a konad fan...but because hopefully this will mean that Nail Artists United get to see their dream come true - and produce more beautiful plates in the future.

I wish them the team every success =)

Thanks for reading
