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! =)

For me lost season 6 , was about answering a lot of questions I had 
gathered throughout each season - It was also was the last season of Lost =(.   
I loved the fact it revealed the history between The Man in Black and 
Jacob and the nature of the island is also explored.  I also love the
 fact, following Jacobs death - We find out that 
Jacob has been present throughout the lives of all the survivors, and has guided 
them to the island. 
This manicure is inspired by the Man in Black and Jacob.


For this Manicure I used:

- Beauty UK - White.

- Drk -A.


To create the base of my manicure i used:

 LOSTathon Daily Challenge! -  that me and  :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl

My Season Four Manicure - Here

For me, Lost season five is about those left on the island, after the 
Oceanic Six - leave the Island and return openly to civilization. 
After Locke corrects the frozen wheel's axis, a large, intense, time flash 
occurs, permanently leaving Sawyer, Jin, Juliet, Miles, and Daniel in the year 1974. 
They soon encounter members of the DHARMA Initiative, who agree to let them
 stay for two weeks, which is ultimately extended to three years. Over those years
 Sawyer, now operating under the alias of "Jim LaFleur", becomes the DHARMA 
Head of Security, with Jin and Miles working under him as members of the Security
 team, Juliet takes a job in the motor pool, Daniel leaves the Island and 
begins working in the DHARMA Headquarters in Michigan doing research, and 
Sawyer and Juliet enter a committed relationship, moving in together <3.


For this Manicure I used:

- La Femme Beauty - Grey Cream.
- Barry M Nail Paint - White Matte.
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish
- Green fraulein 38 Nail Art Liners.
- Konad Special  Black Polish.
- A sponge.
-D25.


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

- One coat of La Femme Beauty's Grey Cream (The best grey one coater ever!).
- I then Sponged some  Barry M - White Matte over my nails.
- I then applied a coat of Rimmel London's Matte Finish to my nails.


Here is a picture of the D25 image plate that i used to
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.


I bet your all thinking - I've seen something similar to this before... Well here (below) 
was my first manicure using the same style. I regretted how yellow it was, and felt 
this was the perfect time to recreate it.


This video Is amazing! ....Watch, Listen and Love!!!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 5 nails.

LOSTathon Daily Challenge + Season 4

Hey Guys

Here is my Fourth instalment to the
 LOSTathon Daily Challenge! -  that me and  :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl
Emma @ Manicurity 
Bee @ Bee Polished
Debbie @ The Crumpet

...Are currently doing =D.

My previous Manicures Can be found :

My Season One Manicure - Here
My Season Two Manicure - Here
My Season Three Manicure - Here


Season 4 for me is all about the Oceanic Six - these are the survivors of Oceanic 
Flight 815, who left the Island and returned openly to civilization  on January 7, 2005, 
108 days after the crash. The lives of these characters following 
their return to civilization is featured in flash-forwards in the final episode of Season 3 and throughout Season 4. Although the existence of an "Oceanic Six"
 was revealed in "The Beginning of the End", the membership of this group was 
revealed and confirmed gradually only over the course of the first several episodes of the fourth season. 


For this Manicure I used:

-Barry M Nail Paint -White Matte Polish.
- Nail Nation Glitter - Blue Glitter (No Name on the bottle).
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
- Rio Professional Nail Art Kit

I used the below Picture for my inspiration.


Unfortunately This Manicure didn't turn out as planned...Oh well!


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

-Two Coats of Barry M's White Matte Polish.
- I then Applied a coat of Nail Nation's Glitter - This is a stunning Blue Glitter.
- I then applied a coat of Rimmel London's Matte Finish.


Season four was one of my favourite seasons. 
The character development in this season is great - It left me wanting more. 



Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 4 nails.

LOSTathon Daily Challenge + Season 3

Hey Guys

Here is my Third instalment to the
 LOSTathon Daily Challenge! -  that me and  :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl
Emma @ Manicurity 
Bee @ Bee Polished
Debbie @ The Crumpet

...Are currently doing =D.

My Season One Manicure Can be found Here &
my Season Two Manicure can be found Here .


When I think - Season 3.... I think of Charlie <3.
  Before the crash, Charlie was the bassist and principal songwriter for the rock band Drive Shaft. Charlie was also addicted to heroin, but kicked the habit whilst on the island.

 "Greatest Hits" is the twenty-first episode of Season 3 - It is one of my favourite episodes from Lost. After Desmond has another one of his flashes, Charlie is forced to come to terms with the notion that he might have to die to ensure everyone else's rescue.
I wont say anything else - encase you haven't watched it yet =-('.  


For this Manicure I used:

- Beauty UK - Yellow Peril.
- La Femme Beauty - Orange Cream & Red Creme.
- Nails Inc polish - New York.
- Rio Professional Nail Art Kit - Black Pen.
- Konad Special Black Polish.
- M58.


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

- Two coats of Beauty UK's Yellow Peril.
- I then sponged La Femme Beauty's Orange Cream half way up my nails.
- I then sponged Nails Inc's New York over La Femme Beauty's Orange Cream, Still allowing some Orange, to still be seen.
- I then sponged La Femme Beauty's Red Creme on the tips of my nails.
- I then applied a coat of Rimmel London's -Matte Finish. 


 Charlie can be seen in numerous episodes playing his guitar, after finding it guitar in the wreckage .  I used Konads M58 to betray charlies acoustic guitar =D.



Here is some Drive Shaft in action for you all!



Also.... I have a confession.
Whilst i was doing this Manicure I was singing 'We all everybody'
I convinced myself..that they were the words.....
So I had to remove my (see below) manicure on my Index finger and start again ...
...I seriously Failed! lol =-/



Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 3 nails

LOSTathon Daily Challenge + Season 2

Hey Guys

Here is my second instalment to the
 LOSTathon Daily Challenge! -  that me and  :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl
Emma @ Manicurity 
Bee @ Bee Polished
Debbie @ The Crumpet

...Are currently doing =D.

My Season One Manicure Can be found Here.

Here Is my interpretation for Season 2.
Season 2 for me was all about the survivors adapting to the Island.
Season 1 ends with the opening of the Hatch.  The hatch has running water, electricity and is stocked with food ( A total haven to our Losties).
It also has a 1970s era computer, which, according to its previous occupant, Desmond, 
must have the Numbers 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42 typed into it every 108 minutes, or "the world will end. 


For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M - White Matte.
- La Femme Beauty - Grey Cream.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- W7 - Black Polish.
- Rio Professional Nail Art Kit - Green Pen.


The numbers  (Above) reoccur frequently in lost.
This is one of the main reasons I loved Lost...It drove me crazy ...I was constantly thinking..
but...but.....what does it all mean !


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

- Two coats of Barry M's White Matte.
- I then Slight Sponged La Femme Beauty's Grey Cream over my nails.
- I then Slight in select areas sponged W7s Black onto my nails.
- I then applied a top coat of Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.


Here's a teaser to teach you more about the Hatch.


Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 2 nails

LOSTathon Daily Challenge + Season 1

Hey Guys!

After posting 'My Dharma Initiative Manicure' - I was contacted By the Lovely Crumpet!

The Challenge - Involves 6 Girls - Wave hello to our lovely constants - including me =-P :

Kirsten @ Geeky Owl
Emma @ Manicurity 
Bee @ Bee Polished
Debbie @ The Crumpet

The Aim for our ' LOSTathon Daily Challenge!'  Is to :

- Post 6 Manicures over the next 6 days
- Each Manicure will be related to a season in lost.
- The Aim is to capture something from each season that stood out to us.

I am a Lostie after all......How could I say no!

Here Is my interpretation for Season 1.
I first thought about doing the Plane crash.. But then steered away from that Idea for obvious reasons.  I then sat down and thought ... What else could I do.. Then Bang! ... How
 I did I not think Of it sooner.

We first met Jack (Hmm <3 ) in the Bamboo Grove (The Bamboo Grove pops up loads throughout each season).  The tops of trees in a bamboo grove, are seen through
 the eyes of  Jack Shephard .  Who is laying on his back in the jungle.  A Golden Labrador Retriever is then seen running through the Bamboo...then...Camera, Lights Action! - 
Hello Lost =D.


For this Manicure I used :

- Nubar - Tea Green.
- Konad Special Green Polish.
- Rimmel London -Matte Finish.
- W7 - Black Polish ( For Stamping).
- A sponge.
- M66.
- HB48.


I actually really Like how my Season One nails turned out =D.
I'm especially happy with how the base of my manicure turned out.


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

- Two Coats of Nubar's Tea Green (Although I could have got away with one).
- I then Slightly Sponged Konads Special Green Polish over my nails.
- I then applied a coat of Rimmel London's Matte Finish.



 For this Manicure I used the Bamboo Image On Konad's M66 (below).



 I also Used HB48 for an image of a dog (Vincent) <3.


Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you enjoyed my Season 1 nails
