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! =)

- I then sponged Sinful Color's Greek Isles over my nails in random areas
 followed by sponging Beauty UK's Yellow Peril in selected areas to add a splurge
 of colour to my base.
- I finished by applying two coats of Rimmel London's 5 in 1 Nail Care.

Bundle Monster + A Manicure & Loads of Pictures

Hey Guys!

I'm in love with Bundle Monster! - Bundle Monsters Image plate Set 3 will not
 disappoint any existing or new stampers.
There are so many unique and fantastic images contained in this set.

Lets have a look at what your money gets you :

 I have contacted Bundle Monster for a replacement of BM-308.
I'm not happy that the Fruit full Image has a splotch on the Image.

 I have contacted Bundle Monster for a replacement of BM-311
the &&& Image does not work =(.

 All the plates do come with a blue film on them to protect them
from getting scratched. Don't forget to remove that film prior to using the plates.
They also are contained in this cute packaging!

Here's a manicure I created with BM-305 =D

For this Manicure I used :

- Sinful Colors - Greek Isles.
