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! =)

The Halloween Challenge + ' Free-Style Halloween! '

Hey Guys!

Here is my fifth manicure for the Halloween 2012 Nail Challenge.
The challenge was created by Crumpets Nail Tarts
Today's theme is  - Free-Style Halloween .

 For this Manicure I used :

- China Glaze - Red Stallion &Yee-Haw!
-W7 - Orange Creme.
- Essie - Orange, Its Obvious.
-  La Femme Beauty -Orange Creme.
- Nails Inc polish - Orange Candy.
-  Barry M Nail Paint - Yellow & White Matt.
- Y.C.C nail enamel - 082.
- Models Own - Lemon Meringue.
-  Rio Professional Nail Art Kit
- Green  fraulein 38 Nail Art Liners.

I interrupted Free-Style as a freehand manicure.

...Free-hand is my weakness!!!
But I'm 95% Happy with the finished manicure - Even my wonky moons lol.

I'd like to take the opportunity to thank all those that wished
 me luck whilst I was doing this - You all rock!

To create the base ( See Below) of my manicure.  

For the base I :

-  Applied a base coat (essential!)
- I then applied two coats of China Glaze's Red Stallion. 
- Then from my lunula, a.k.a your
 nail moon (see below) , I  Sponged (going downwards, blended
together as I sponged) :

China Glaze's Yee-Haw.
- La Femme Beauty's Orange Creme.
- Essie's Orange, Its Obvious.
- Nails Inc's Orange Candy.
- Y.C.C nail enamel's 082.
- Barry M's Yellow.
- Models Own's  Lemon Meringue.
-  I finished by sponging Barry M's White Matt
at the tip of my nails .
