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! =)

Spellbinding Nails 2012 Favourites

Hey Guys!

As 2012 is coming to a close, I thought I'd look back through the 
archives and pick out, my favourite manicures from 2012.

I picked 10 posts in the end.....I originally picked 20 ( I hate being so Indecisive)

You can view the original post by Clicking on the title =D.

**********************************************

Under the Sea (Below)
Konad's M34 is one of my favourite Image Plates - I esp
 LOVE how detailed this Image is =D.


I love how the purple background adds a 
nightly feel this Manicure.


Under the Sea! (Below)
For this manicure I used HB45. I love my bright manicures so this 
defiantly had to appear in my top 10 =D


Gradient Nails ( Below)
This design looks like something 
you would get at a nail salon! ( Thank god for Image Plates lol!) .
I'm really happy with how my gradient turned out too  =D


I  love creating colourful and interesting bases - Gradient backgrounds 
can really emphasis a manicure especially when using Image Plates =D.


My Inspiration for this manicure was
An Accessorize bottle and my Awesome friend Fingers Polish Mania .
If you have never seen her blog or her funky French's ....then immediately - stop what 
your doing and CHECK her blog out!


I love how edible this manicure looks =D.


Pac-Man! ( Below)
I love geeky Images and I especially love this Image.
Lets hope 2013 gives us more Geek Image plates * Crosses fingers!*

Hey Guys!

Here is my fifth manicure for the Winter Holiday Challenge.

For this Manicure I used :

- Julep - Leah.
- Naild'It  - Sssnot what you Think

This is such a Fun & awesome polish.
Sssnot What You Think is a loaded glitter nail polish with matte greens,

great layering polish but also looks good alone. These glitter have a slight matte
 look, to get a glossy finish just add top coat. 
I love it =D
