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 love the Little Mermaid!
This manicure is dedicated to flounder and Sebastian!
.....after all - they are Hero's for Ariel! 
Flounder is Ariel's best friend, is a bright yellow and golden blue colored tropical
 fish despite the name, he is not a flounder, but is a juvenile atlantic blue tang. 
Flounder scares easily, and is prone to panicking under stressful situations like
 a single shark breaching the sunken ship, but when Ariel is in trouble, he comes 
through for her without hesitation.
Sebastian is a red jamaican crab that,  the servant of King 
Triton . The character was developed solely for the film, and is not 
derived from the original Hans Christian Andersen story. Aside from
 being a Caribbean crab, Sebastian is also known for his Jamaican accent. 


For this Manicure I used :

- La Femme Beauty - Mint Cream.
-  Milani - Cyberspace.
-  Rio Professional Nail Art Kit - Green & Blue Pen.
- Random Green and a Yellow fraulein 38 Nail Art Liners.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Hand-Made Decals.



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


- I applied one coat of Rimmel London's 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- I then applied one coat of La Femme Beauty's Mint Cream.
- I then applied tow coats of Milani's Cyberspace Followed by 
a top coat of Rimmel London's 5 in 1 Nail Care.


I love this film - It is definitely in my top 10 of Disney films made!


Entertainment time! ... Now I hope you all sing along =-P

My manicure is inspired by the Queen of Hearts.
The Queen of Hearts is a character from the book Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
 by the writer and mathematician Lewis Carroll.
 She is a foul-tempered monarch, that Carroll himself pictured as "a blind fury", and
 who is quick to decree death sentences at the slightest offence. 
Her most famous line, one which she repeats often, is "Off with their heads!"


For this Manicure I used :

- Models Own - Coral Reef.
- Milani - Digital
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Rio Professional Nail Art Kit - Green and Yellow pens.


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

- One coat of Models Own - Coral Reef.
- I applied two coats of Milani's Digital.
- I then applied one coat of Rimmel London's  5 in 1 Nail Care.


Disney's Alice and Wonderland is one of my favourite Disney's ever!!!!!...I used to 
watch it so much...My poor mother lol.


Alice in Wonderland is the thirteenth animated feature film produced by 
Walt Disney in the Disney animated feature canon. and originally premiered
 in London, England on July 26, 1951 by Walt Disney Pictures. Lewis Carroll's books Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass have
 been frequently adapted for film; this adaptation solved the problems of the setting by using animation. 

Here is a video show that the Queen of hearts deserves to be my top Disney 
Villain ...Now "Off with their heads!"

For my DC hero I chose Batman!
A family outing to the cinema ended in tragedy for young 
Bruce Wayne. Walking homeward, Bruce, his father, Thomas, and mother, 
Martha, accidentally ventured into Gotham City's notorious "Crime Alley" and
 were accosted by a mugger. Not content merely to rob the wealthy family, 
the hoodlum - whose identity was "never determined" - shot Dr. Thomas
 and Martha Wayne dead before fleeing into the darkness. As he knelt 
beside his parent's bodies, Bruce swore to avenge them. After the police
 arrived, Bruce was comforted by Dr. Leslie Thompkins. Dr. Thompkins 
and Alfred Pennyworth helped arrange matters so that Gotham's Social 
Services would not take Bruce into care. In this way, both Dr. Thompkins and
 Alfred enabled Bruce to realise his dream of becoming a crusader 
against crime.  Bruce became Batman, a Dark Knight to protect Gotham and its 
citizens from vice and villainy.


For this Manicure I used :

- Beauty UK - Yellow Peril.
- Nail Nation Glitter - Yellow Glitter ( No Name)
- Rio Professional Nail Art Kit - Green and Red Pens.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care
- D25.



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

- I applied two coats of Beauty UK's Yellow Peril.
- One coat of a Yellow Glitter Polish from Nail Nation. 
- I then applied One coat of Rimmel London's 5 in 1 Nail Care.


The Iconic batman symbol! 


Here is a picture of the D25 Image Plate that I used to 
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.

My inspiration for my DC Villain is Poison Ivy 
Wiki time ;-D  
Poison Ivy is a fictional character, a DC Comics supervillainess who
 is primarily an enemy of Batman.
Poison Ivy is depicted as one of the world's most prominent eco-terrorists. 
She is obsessed with plants, botany, and environmentalism. She 
uses toxins from plants and mind controlling pheromones for her criminal 
activities, which are usually aimed at protecting the natural environment. 
Fellow villain Harley Quinn is her recurring partner-in-crime and possibly her 
only human friend. She is best known as a villain of Batman and plays an 
important role in his rogues gallery and has proven to be one of his more 
powerful foes, being one of the few Batman villains to display anything close
 to superpowers. Pamela Isley a.k.a. Poison Ivy has been portrayed as a love
 interest for Batman in some comics. In one comic, Ivy was robbing a charity 
gala Bruce Wayne was attending. Ivy's first kiss was poison, the second its
 antidote. When they first meet, Ivy's toxic lips planted a seed of toxic rapture
 in Bruce. But when she later kissed a dying Dark Knight, Ivy unknowingly 
cured her intended victim and established a budding 
romantic tension between them.


For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - Foil (Gold) & Racing Green.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Konad Special Green Polish.
- SdP 3. 


Here is a picture of the SdP3 Image Plate that I used to 
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.


I found this awesome picture portraying Poison Ivy whilst I was researching her.



Here's a quick Video - Lets met our DC villain =D.

My Marvel Superhero Manicure was inspired by Captain America.
Wikipedia time....
Captain America is a fictional character, a superhero who appears in comic books 
published by Marvel Comics. The character first appeared in Captain America
 Comics #1 (cover-dated March 1941), from Marvel Comics' 1940s
 predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby.
 As of 2007, an estimated 210 million copies of "Captain America" 
comic books had been sold in 75 countries. For nearly all of the character's
 publication history, Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a frail 
young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an
 experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a 
costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon.


For this Manicure I used :

- Barry M Nail Paint - Matt White.
- Models Own - Coral Reef.
- Nails Inc polish - Cumberland Street.
- Essence - Red-y To Go.
- Beauty UK - Blue Shimmer.
- Rimmel London - 5 in 1 Nail Care.
- Dotting Tools.
- A Sponge.


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

- Two coats of - Barry M's Matt White.
- I then Sponged Models Owns Coral Reef In random areas over my nail.
- I then did the same with Nails Inc's Cumberland Street.


As soon as I saw The Image of Captain America's shield
on my  Fab Ur Nails - Fun 2 Image Plate I squealed!
I demand more geek Nail Images!

Here is a picture of the Fab Ur Nails - Fun 2  image plate, that I used to 
create my manicure. It can be purchased from Here.


Hmm Chris Evans is a fine ...*Gets distracted!* .....Choice for Captain 
America - Would you all agree?


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