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! =)

M57 + ' Dudley Zoo '

Hey guys!

I've recently decided to give my konad plates some love.
I have been neglecting them a lot recently .... Well Its fair to say that I've been distracted 
by other brands =-P ( .. and who could blame me!) . 
However with a trip to the Zoo planed - I found some inspiration from Image plate M57 =D.

For This Manicure I used

- Sally Hansen - Lite.
- Kleancolor - Jazz Olive & Metallic Green.
- Konad Special Black Polish.
- M57.

 To create the base of my manicure i used:

- Two coats of Sally Hansen's Lite.
- I then slightly sponged Kleancolors Jazz Olive onto my nails - Followed 
by Kleancolors Metallic Green.

I was really worried how this would turn out ...As I rarely touch animal prints.
 However, I love the finished look.

Here is a picture of the M57 image plate that i used to 
create my manicure.

On Monday, Me and the Boyfriend visited Dudley Zoo.
I had such a great day out - there was so much to see and do. 
Here is some picture spam to show you the Zoo.

Also to address concerns about Zoo's upfront by some that may hate Zoos.
I appreciate some people may hate to see caged animals .. People will know that I 
myself have concerns with animal confinement  ( Especially with Seaworld)
However , When I can see that the 'confinement ' Is conserving the animals and keeping them from Poachers - then they receive my full support.

Review for Rio Beauty's Professional Nail Art Kit

Hey Guys

I was recently contacted by Rio Beauty to give a honest review of their
 Rio Professional Nail Art Kit.  I immediately said Yes!, as I've been wanting to buy
 their products for some time. 

I was sent an Original Set - which retails for £24.99 - The set features :

- Eight different colours in unique dual applicator bottles.
- Includes a sample design chart of nails created by a professional nail artist using the kit.
- Comes with step-by-step DVD and user guide showing nail art tips and techniques.
- Glitter.
- Rhinestones and a brush to apply the nail art colours as your base.

Before I go any further I need to say how impressed I was with this kit - You get
 amazing  value for money from it.

 For my first experiment -  I did a funky Pop art inspired manicure.

I used Barry M's Matte White for my base...And went crazy!.
I had SO much fun creating this Fun manicure!
I love how easy it was to use these dual applicator bottles. All you need to do is squeeze them slightly and away you draw/Dot.

 I used the DVD and tutorial 
book for my next manicure - which was purely to experiment.

For my below manicure I used base coats 
- La Femme Beauty -  Ice Blue Cream, Lime Cream, Orange Cream, Lilac Cream & Pink Cream.

The User Guide and DVD show you everything you need to create stunning looks.

Here is a video to show more of the Kit.
Now that I've tested the kit... I can say with confidence - Do not feel tempted into buying cheap dual applicator bottles again-These are simply fantastic!

Thanks for stopping By!

SdP 4 + ' Ending in 4 '

Hey Guys

Last weeks 'Adventures In Stamping' challenge was to use ' A plate ending in 4 '.
I actually did two manicures for this Challenge (I've just been slow at posting 
them - due to feeling ill last week =-/) -  The first can be found here .... And here is the other.

For this Manicure I used:

- Nails Inc polish - Piccadilly Arcade.
- Kleancolor -  Metallic Purple.
- SdP 4.

 I really like this full nail image - Its so beautiful.

I did this Manicure last weekend whilst waiting on a early delivery. 
I usually ...wait 30 Minutes to an hour before applying a top coat... But for some 
crazy reason, I applied it immediately after applying Rhinestones to the manicure......and
 below happened...Oh well (Pffft!).

Here is the SdP 4 (below)  image plate that i used to create this Manicure with.
It can be purchased from Here.

M34 + ' Under the Sea! '

Hey Guys

This weeks 'Adventures In Stamping' challenge was to use ' A plate ending in 4 '.
Here's what I came up with =D.

For this Manicure I used:

- Nails Inc polish - Royal Mews.
- Kleancolor - Metallic Sapphire and Aqua Polish.
- W7 - Black Nail Polish ( For Stamping).
- Dotting Tools.
- M34.

I've been lemming over this Image late since I saw this manicure on ThatsSoFresh.
However..The only reason for not buying it - til now is because  
I wanted to buy Konads Demo Plate 1
One evening whilst I was  looking on Ebay I found the Konad Demo 
Plate 1 for £55.00 ( advising used once!) - Immediately Snagged it!. 

 I really love how this turned out - I also love how detailed the image is.

I also need to say that - I am in love Nails Inc's - Royal Mews
This is a new polish that they are releasing later this year - I got it in their QVC
 deal on Valentines day.
It is such a gorgeous , Subtle Holographic Polish -  I only need 2 coats to get the finished look.

Here is My new Konad demo plate - alongside My konad Demo Plate 2 <3.

Here is a close of of the images on M34.
 Thanks for stopping by!



...I just couldn't resist adding this video - I <3 Disney! xxx
