Recent Fauxnadicures

Wow, Fauxnadicures totally gets the red squiggle underliney thing.

So, I've been having a ton of fun stamping lately since I ordered the Bundle Monster plates. I really prefer the full-nail stamps. I do hate that the Bundle Monster full nail stamps are so narrow. I have fairly narrow nails, but they don't cover my entire nail width. I bet these things would be really horrible for the ladies with wider nail beds than mine. STILL, I've been stamping away. Here are some of my recent looks. I'd tell you what plate the images came from, but I'm way too lazy to go look. However, all of the stamps came from the Bundle Monster plates, and not my Konad or other Fauxnad plates.

Here is Essie Splash of Grenadine with Konad Violet Pearl on top.

China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy with Konad Special Polish in Black. This one got me a LOT of comments. The neon-y-ness of Flip Flop Fantasy is really hard to capture in photos, but this was BRIGHT.

This was OPI Who The Shrek are You with Konad Violet Pearl for the checkerboard tip pattern. This was my first attempt ever at stamping tips, and let me say... it is NOT easy to get it straight. My right hand was pretty crooked, but I wore it anyway. My pointer finger was a casualty of my job.

This is Essie Lapis of Luxury with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White for the stamp. I think I'm going to have to break down and buy the special Konad white polish because I cannot find a white that stamps decently to save my life.

I didn't have adequate sunlight to capture this one, and it was very, very subtle, but I liked it. It reminded me of, say, curtains in a funeral home. LOL. The base is Rimmel Hard Edged stamped with Nina Ultra Pro in Viva La Velvet.

This is what I'm wearing today and I LOVE IT. It may be my favorite one yet. Then again, I love the color combination of aqua and dark brown. This is a base of Orly Gumdrop stamped with Kleancolor in Dark Brown. OH... Kleancolor. I had no idea where to get this stuff, but I went to an asian beauty supply store close to my house, and they had a TON of it for $1 apiece. This is some GOOD STUFF. I actually have another post planned about my trip to the asian beauty supply. :)


  1. These are awesome!!
    My favorite is the neon with stars :D

  2. Kleancolor you can buy online for I think $2 or $3 each but you have to spend over $20 and the shipping is $10 so for me not so worth it. I love a whole bunch of these, I just got my BM plates and I'm having more fun with these than my normal konad for some reason. And I also love blue and brown- one of my favorites (and pink and brown too).

  3. I love the last manicure! It is really nice!

  4. Love the first, fourth and especially the last manis. I just found some KleanColor polish too and grabbed three. Yet to use them though.

  5. You have been busy. Others have mentioned sharp edges and cutting themselves with the bundle monsters. Were you extra extra careful or did you find a trick for handling them safely?

  6. Love them all but my fav is the stars. WOW.

  7. Thanks, guys!

    I personally haven't had a problem cutting myself on the plates. I'm not doing anything special to handle them. :)

  8. Love the designs and color combos you chose. I've been having fun too. Its hard not to when that lovely bundle arrives. ;)

  9. The stars and the circles are my favorites! So cute!

  10. the stars are my favorite too. nice and blinding :)
