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! =)

Fab Ur Nails - Fun 11 Image Plate + ' Rainbow Brite!!! '

Hey Guys!

I posted my tutorial for this manicure on 23 July and totally forgot to post the 
finished manicure.. Opps, Oh well - better later then never - right?!?

For this Manicure I used:

- Sally Hansen - Lavender Cloud
- OPI - Golden Eye
- MoYou Black Stamping polish
- Seche Vite.
- Beauty UK - Yellow Peril
- Accessorize - Fudge With Love Nail Polish
- Barielle -Academy Award.

I loved rainbow brite when I was a kid - It was a short-lived
 series that started in 1984.  

Here is the Original 1980's Story:

In a faraway place, right at the end of the rainbow, there is a magical 
kingdom where all the colours of the earth are created. The kingdom is
called Rainbow Land, and living in this wonderful place is a lovable, creative
 little girl named Rainbow Brite. She uses the colours of the rainbow to make 
our world brighter and our hearts lighter.

Rainbow Brite's best friend is a magical flying horse named Starlite. He 
serves as Rainbow's protector and guardian, and as her swiftest 
means of transportation.

Rainbow's partners are the Colour Kids - seven little people with 
personalities as varied as the colours of the rainbow. They are responsible 
for their assigned colours, and for organising and leading the groups of 
sprites that match their hues.

The sprites are colourful, happy little workers who mine and manufacture 
"star sprinkles", the magic crystals which form the colours. The favourite 
sprite of Rainbow Brite is Twink, a white and furry little bundle of energy 
who was once a sprite of a different colour!

The villains of Rainbow Land are Murky Dismal and Lurky - two nasty
 creatures who live in a place called The Pits. They hate everything
colourful and are always plotting ways to capture Rainbow Brite. They 
want to use colour for trickery and evil doings so that the world will be
 just as murky and dismal as they are.

Join Rainbow Brite and her forces of colour as they challenge the
 forces of gloom, in a struggle to keep the world bright and colourful, and
 to keep our hearts hopeful and happy.

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

- One coat of Sally Hansen's Lavender Cloud, to my Index, Middle  
and Pinkie finger.
- I then applied a coat of Vivid Lacquer's Wool Tangent
-  I then applied a coat of Vivid Lacquer's Autumn Harvest. 
- Followed by a coat of  Vivid Lacquer's Pick Your Portal.
- I also applied 2 to 3 coats of OPI's Golden Eye on my Thumb and  Ring Finger.

"As long as Rainbow Brite has fans, her rainbow will never truly fade."

I couldn't resist! Lets watch the Intro shall we =D

For this manicure I used Fab Ur Nails - Fun 11 Image Plate (See below).
You can purchase this Image plate from Llarowe
