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! =)

Happy Holidays to you all!

Hey Guys

I hope you all had a Fantastic Christmas and got heavily spoilt!.


Did any of you get any nail polish or nail care gifts for 
Christmas? Or maybe you treated yourself?- If so let me know what you got =).

I can't wait to show 
you the beauties I got for Christmas =).

My Christmas day manicure this year involved ...No stamping...I know a Sin - right !?!?

However just look at this combo....How could I stamp on this - Its just 
too beautiful.

(Picture Without Flash)

For this Manicure I used:

OPI - Your Royal Shine-ness.
OPI - Servin’ Up Sparkle.
- Top coat - Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.

(Picture with Flash)

I got my OPI Serena Glam Slam England Your Royal Shine-ness & Servin' 
Up Sparkle set as a Christmas gift from my loving little sister.

Your Royal Shine-ness - Is a blackened solver foil. I think its quite unique - due to its 
darkness factor. The formula was great and only required 2 coats.

Then we have - Servin' Up Sparkle. This is a clear base 
with different sized fantastic silver and holographic hexagonal glitter throughout.       

Just look at the blurry Holo sparkle in the below picture / Drool!.

 (Picture with Flash)

Here's are few pictures of some Holiday Manicures I've recently done / Enjoy!



 












Also I recommend that everyone checks out Canadian Nail Fanatic's latest post!
