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! =)

***********************************************

For my first Manicure I have chosen to represent Red Skull from 
Captain America - The first Avenger. I absolutely love the fact that they cast Hugo 
Weaving as Red Skull.  He's such an incredible actor.  Red Skull is Captain
 America's nemesis and Adolf Hitler's head of advanced weaponry, whose
 own plan for world domination involves a magical object known as
 the Tesseract In the film, Red Skull is the commander of the terrorist organization Hydra. 


For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - Black & Foil effects.
- Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black.
- Essence - Red-y To Go.
Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
Fab Ur Nails Stamping Polish - Orange.
- Dotting Tools.
- D03.



I was originally going to use Kleancolor's Metallic red for the skull Image...But 
decided against it as I wanted a dark manicure.

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

- Two coats of Barry M's Black.
- One coat of Kleancolor's Chunky Holo Black.
- One coat of Rimmel London's Matte Finish.


Here is a picture of the D03 image plate that I used to
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.


Here is Red Skull from Captain America - The first Avenger.


Here's a quick video - Lets meet our first Villain shall we =D.


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