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! =)

Review for Born Pretty + Dotting Tools & Fauxnad S10

Hey Guys

I recently did a review for Born Pretty
Born Pretty contacted me again to advise that they loved my review 
and asked if I could review 2 further products for them.

I immediately jumped at the chance - I selected two products that I've always 
wanted to try =).

Here is the content of my carefully selected items =).

Now...( / Hides)...you will have seen that I've already tested ( Become obsessed) the Dotting Tools ;-)

Here are some of my Manicures that I have created using the 
dotting tools Born Pretty sent me: 


****

Anyway back to the review ... I get so easily distracted =).

Here is the Fauxnad S10 plate that Born Pretty sent me.
I don't have this exact plate from Konad, but I do own a few other plates 
from Konad - but I really can't tell a difference. 

The only thing noticeable is that there isn't any paper backing on the 
Born Pretty plate.

I was very happy that the blue plastic came off the plate easily.


Here is a close up of the Fauxnad S10 Plate.


 I decided to swatch the plate to test the quality - as you can see its very impressive.


Here is a cute manicure I made using the Dotting Tools & Fauxnad S10.


For this Manicure I used:

- Essence - What Do You Think?
- Beauty UK - Red , Yellow Peril , Go Green , Blue Shimmer and
Lilac Girl.
- Konad Special Black Polish.
-  Dotting Tools.
- Fauxnad S10.

(Picture with Flash).

I really like this plate - Its so cute! - I love how this Manicure turned out =).

code to get 10% OFF: SSJ61 . 
I placed a banner to the BPS website on the left side of my blog with the code.
