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! =)

My inspiration for my DC Villain is Poison Ivy 
Wiki time ;-D  
Poison Ivy is a fictional character, a DC Comics supervillainess who
 is primarily an enemy of Batman.
Poison Ivy is depicted as one of the world's most prominent eco-terrorists. 
She is obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism. She 
uses toxins from plants and mind controlling pheromones for her criminal 
activities, which are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment. 
Fellow villain Harley Quinn is her recurring partner-in-crime and possibly her 
only human friend. She is best known as a villain of Batman and plays an 
important role in his rogues gallery and has proven to be one of his more 
powerful foes, being one of the few Batman villains to display anything close
 to superpowers. Pamela Isley a.k.a. Poison Ivy has been portrayed as a love
 interest for Batman in some comics. In one comic, Ivy was robbing a charity 
gala Bruce Wayne was attending. Ivy's first kiss was poison, the second its
 antidote. When they first meet, Ivy's toxic lips planted a seed of toxic rapture
 in Bruce. But when she later kissed a dying Dark Knight, Ivy unknowingly 
cured her intended victim and established a budding 
romantic tension between them.

For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - Foil (Gold) & Racing Green.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Konad Special Green Polish.
- SdP 3. 

Here is a picture of the SdP3 Image Plate that I used to 
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.

I found this awesome picture portraying Poison Ivy whilst I was researching her.

Here's a quick Video - Lets met our DC villain =D.

Don't forget to pop over to the other ladies' blogs to see what they've 
come up with for their DC Villain Manicures =D.
