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! =)

Google News

Hey Guys!

The lovely Sarah From Samariums-Swatches - Has shared the following Link with 
me tonight.  I think it is defiantly interesting to read as it will affect 
some Non Google  bloggers

Google have announced - See source Here

Google Friend Connect—Friend Connect allows webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a few snippets of code. We’re retiring the service for all non-Blogger sites on March 1, 2012. We encourage affected sites to create a Google+ page and place a Google+ badge on their site so they can bring their community of followers to Google+ and use new features like Circles and Hangouts to keep in touch.
With Google retiring Friend Connect, this allows Blogger to take over its functionality. 
Blogger blog owners, who like the idea of letting their Followers display their icons on the faces of our blogs, and view our blog updates in the Blogger Reading List / Google Reader displays, can continue to use the Followers accessory.

By removing Google Friend Connect from the Followers accessory, Blogger is hoping that the code supporting the Followers gadget can be simplified, and will become more stable.

You have approximately 4 months to use this 
information - Don't say you wasn't warned

(Picture with Flash)

For this Manicure I used :

- Beauty UK - Blue Moon
- Konad Special White, Green & Black Polish.
- Nubar - Green Tea.
-  Some Green Fraulein 38 Nail Art Liners.
- A Sponge.
- M79 - For the clouds.
- Hot Topic Image Plate.

Although I regret the color I chose to stamp the dinosaur with - I do 
still love how this turned out!

Here is a picture 'Before' stamping the Dinosaur image - I 
think M79 is my most used Konad plate - especially for the clouds <3.

Hot Topic Image Plates + ' Im In love ! '

Hey Guys!

I'm excited to reveal that after months and months of 
searching -  I have in my possession!

The Hot Topic Plates!

* Sorry some of the pictures are not my best ...However, I was just too eager
too use the plates for a manicure =) *


These plates have been my No'1 Lemmings of all time! - I discovered
 how addictive stamping was in October 2010...But these plates had 
been discontinued in 2009.


I recently Contacted the lovely Inge from Polish Pixie - To enquire if she was 
happy to Swap or sell me her Hot Topic Plates..and I got success!.

I cant believe I finally have them * Happy Bounce! * Thank you so 
much Inge! x

Also they are unused! * Super extra Happy Bounce!*


Here are some close up pictures of the Two plates - (Without Flash)  to show you
the beauty of these Plates =).


A dinosaur image...Yes I will be using this in my next Manicure =).


I can truthly say that my collection welcomes these Two plates!


Inge also sent me 4 bottles of polish ...These were 
a total surprise to me. 
The polishes in the package were:

- Nubar - Green Tea.
- Nfu.Oh #95.
- NYX - Asphalt.
- H Nail Polish.



I'm so so happy with this package not only have i finally got the hot topic
 plates! - but I now own my first polishes from 
Nubar, Nfu.Oh, NYX and H Nail Polish. 

Thanks for stopping by!

/Hugs!

New from Konad - Special Polishes

Hey guys

I showed you guys some freshly leaked photos on 
Friday of 3 new Konad plates , due to be released in December.
But , I totally forgot to share some new Special Polishes that Konad are also bringing out.
/Bonk.

I don't know how I feel about these colours.. As most Chrome's and Metallic 
polishes out there do the job plus for stamping . 
(Post incoming showing you the potential Kleancolors 
Metallic polishes have for stamping).


What do you think about these colours?

Thanks for stopping by!
