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! =)

My Ultimate Villain is...
The Wicked Witch of the West .. She used to scare me 
when I was little trust me lol......
The Wicked Witch of the West is a fictional character and the most 
significant antagonist in L. Frank Baum's children's book The Wonderful
 Wizard of Oz In the 1939 version of The Wizard of Oz, Margaret Hamilton 
plays the Wicked Witch of the West as a stooped,
 green-skinned witch dressed in a long black dress with a black 
pointed hat. This representation of the Wicked Witch has become a standard 
for what witches look like and an archetype for human wickedness. 
The character ranks No. 4 in the American Film Institute's list of the 50 Best
 Movie Villains of All Time, making her the highest ranking female villain, as
 well as placing 90th on Empire's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.

 For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - White Matt & Tangerine.
- Beauty UK - Yellow Peril & Lilac Girl.
- Beauty UK - Foil Collection - Silver.
- Clubworks - Neon Orange.
- Y.C.C nail enamel- 082 , 080 & 119.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Sinful Colors - Olympia .
- BM13 (Witch on Broomstick).
- BM209 (Witch Hat).
- BM213 ( Bats and Ruby Slippers).
- Mash-46 ( Witch Stockings).
-  Dotting Tools.
- A sponge.

To create the base on my thumb ( See Below) I used:

- I Applied a base coat and allowed this to dry.
- I applied 1 coat of Barry M's White Matt.
- I Sponged Beauty UK's Yellow Peril all over my nail.
- I then sponged Y.C.C nail enamel's 082 to the half way point on my nail.
- I then sponged Clubworks's Neon Orange - just slightly below 
Y.C.C nail enamel's 082.
- I then sponged Barry M's Tangerine on the tips of my nails.
- I finished by applying a top coat =D.

My thumb represents - The Wicked Witch of the West - flying on her broomstick.
My Index finger represents - Ruby Slippers, that were previously owned by the 
Wicked Witch of the East.
My middle finger represents - Her Black *Wicked*  Pointed Hat
My index finger represents -  Black and White Striped Witch Stocking's.
My pinky finger represents - Her green Skin.

When I was little the wicked witch was so scary! ..But this clip still makes me giggle!

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