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! =)

LOSTathon Daily Challenge + Season 1

Hey Guys!

After posting 'My Dharma Initiative Manicure' - I was contacted By the Lovely Crumpet!
She had an awesome Idea Involving - A daily Lost challenge.

The Challenge - Involves 6 Girls - Wave hello to our lovely constants - including me =-P :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl
Emma @ Manicurity 
Bee @ Bee Polished
Debbie @ The Crumpet

The Aim for our ' LOSTathon Daily Challenge!'  Is to :

- Post 6 Manicures over the next 6 days
- Each Manicure will be related to a season in lost.
- The Aim is to capture something from each season that stood out to us.

I am a Lostie after all......How could I say no!

Here Is my interpretation for Season 1.
I first thought about doing the Plane crash.. But then steered away from that Idea for obvious reasons.  I then sat down and thought ... What else could I do.. Then Bang! ... How
 I did I not think Of it sooner.

We first met Jack (Hmm <3 ) in the Bamboo Grove (The Bamboo Grove pops up loads throughout each season).  The tops of trees in a bamboo grove, are seen through
 the eyes of  Jack Shephard .  Who is laying on his back in the jungle.  A Golden Labrador Retriever is then seen running through the Bamboo...then...Camera, Lights Action! - 
Hello Lost =D.


For this Manicure I used :

- Nubar - Tea Green.
- Konad Special Green Polish.
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
- W7 - Black Polish ( For Stamping).
- A sponge.
- M66.
- HB48.


I actually really Like how my Season One nails turned out =D.
I'm especially happy with how the base of my manicure turned out.


To create the base ( See Below) of my manicure i used:

- Two Coats of Nubar's Tea Green (Although I could have got away with one).
- I then Slightly Sponged Konads Special Green Polish over my nails.
- I then applied a coat of Rimmel London's Matte Finish.



 For this Manicure I used the Bamboo Image On Konad's M66 (below).



 I also Used HB48 for an image of a dog (Vincent) <3.


Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 1 nails
