Thursday's Talons (Fauxnading Fun)

Currently listening to: Higher Window by Josh Groban

Hello dear readers,

Did you like my mattified take on Accessorize's Storm polish? I did, but I couldn't resist stamping on top of it last weekend. I chose Barry M in Pure Turquoise as my stamping colour and used a full nail image from my Bundle Monster plates, one which I hadn't used for a while and is always tricky to place well.

As you can see, the stamping didn't turn out very well and I had lots of smudges. I think the colour combination worked though.

I jazzed it up a bit more with a feather on each thumb nail stamped in a metallic blue from Collection 2000.

The feather was actually my favourite thing about this manicure. I can't believe I hadn't thought to use that image before. I think we'll be seeing it much more in the near future ;-)

What do you think of this manicure? What's your favourite Konad/Fauxnad image for stamping?

Bye for now,


  1. I think it's cute and a little grown-up.:D

    Happy Thursday!:D

  3. cute and elegant at the same time:)

  4. love the colors! I might need to get one of those stampers. I didn't know they worked so well

  5. @Marie, lol, thanks :-)

    @Daisychain, yeh! Bare nails aren't fun!

    @Pink_Diamond, thank you!

    @Rilakumi, ooh you definitely should! You'll never look back once you get into stamping :-)
