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 Marvel Superhero Manicure was inspired by Captain America.
Wikipedia time....
Captain America is a fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books 
published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Captain America
 Comics #1 (cover-dated March 1941), from Marvel Comics' 1940s
 predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
 As of 2007, an estimated 210 million copies of "Captain America" 
comic books had been sold in 75 countries. For nearly all of the character's
 publication history, Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a frail 
young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an
 experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a 
costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon.


For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - Matt White.
- Models Own - Coral Reef.
- Nails Inc polish - Cumberland Street.
- Essence - Red-y To Go.
- Beauty UK - Blue Shimmer.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Dotting Tools.
- A Sponge.


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

- Two coats of - Barry M's Matt White.
- I then Sponged Models Owns Coral Reef In random areas over my nail.
- I then did the same with Nails Inc's Cumberland Street.


As soon as I saw The Image of Captain America's shield
on my  Fab Ur Nails - Fun 2 Image Plate I squealed!
I demand more geek Nail Images!

Here is a picture of the Fab Ur Nails - Fun 2  image plate, that I used to 
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.


Hmm Chris Evans is a fine ...*Gets distracted!* .....Choice for Captain 
America - Would you all agree?


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

  10. Captain America was a good choice for a super hero! What a skill you have with nail art. Such a creative blog you own, thank you so much for the post.

    It must have taken so much time and creative thoughts to master each layer.
