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! =)

The Halloween Challenge + 'Influenced by a Scary Movie! '

Hey Guys!

Here is my ninth manicure for the Halloween 2012 Nail Challenge.
The challenge was created by Crumpets Nail Tarts
Today's theme is  - 'Influenced by a Scary Movie!


For this Manicure I used :

- Y.C.C nail enamel - 126.
- MoYou Black Stamping polish.
- MoYou White Stamping polish.
- Seche Vite
- BM13


My nails were influenced by the Horror film Arachnophobia.
Many of you may know by now...that I suffer from extreme 
arachnophobia.....I hate spiders!

Arachnophobia is about :
A large spider from the jungles of South America is accidently transported in
 a crate with a dead body to America where it mates with a local spider. 
Soon after, the residents of a small California town disappear as the result
 of spider bites from the deadly spider offspring. It's up to a couple of 
doctors with the help of an insect exterminator to annihilate
 these eight legged freaks before they take over the entire town.
...yeah scary right!


For my base I applied two coats of Y.C.C nail enamel's no'126
The formula on this polish is beautiful 


Here is a picture of the BM-222 Image plate that I used to 
create my manicure.

Hey guys!

Since joining the Nail community I've met so MANY incredible friends. 
I'd like to Introduce you all to one Incredible friend that I've met along my travels
 and she is, the one and only Bunny Nails!

I'm also happy to announce, that she has recently designed her own Image plates!

....Let me also introduce you all to the
 HD (holiday) Image Plates by Bunny Nails!

I saw a preview of these plates a week or so ago and
 have been excited since.


I've know Bunny Nails for a while - She's an awesome girl. I'm so excited 
about this project and wish her all the luck in the world. I cant wait
 to see what the future holds for her.

These Image plates are not exclusive to Bunny Nails, you may have
 seen these on Ebay already. She had an agreement with the manufacturer. 
This meant that they would make the plates for her without the
 exclusivity Id like to make a plea to you...If you would like to see future plates
 from Bunny Nails (Yes...Yes you all DO...Yes, nod your heads with me!)
 then if you show support by buying from her directly.

I'm happy to advise that they will be available from her  at the
