Hey guys, I'm back! Unfortunately my holiday didn't go to plan. Because I'm a nice person who likes to share, I shared my sickness with my boyfriend and we spent the whole time stuck in our accommodation feeling sorry for ourselves. I think my boyfriend now understands why I'm so picky about where we stay though. If you're going to be stuck there, it might as well be nice!

So here's the nail design I did last night. I'm calling it Rockstar (for obvious reasons).

For some reason, this was incredibly hard to photograph. I spent an hour (I kid you not!) snapping away in different lighting trying to get the colours to look right. Every time the gold looked right, the orangy/coral didn't, and vice versa. It's still not quite right, but I've given up so this is what you guys are getting. The gold on my thumb and ring finger is OPI's 'Glitzerland'. On my remaining fingers I used OPI's 'Are We There Yet?', followed by the stars on Konad plate Q1 (using Konad black polish), and topped it off with a fine coat of Essie's 'Golden Nuggets' glitter.

I absolutely love Konad plate Q1. Here's what's on it:

This was apparently a special edition plate released only in the UK, which explains why I had such a hard time finding one. The only place I found that posted to Australia was a seller on ebay. I ended up paying about $25 for it including postage, which is far more than I ever thought I'd spend on a stamping plate, but it's so cute that I knew I'd get a lot of use out of it. If you really want one I suggest doing a search on ebay for 'Konad Q1' every so often. I had to check a few times before this one popped up in my search, but I persisted and now it's mine! All mine! Muahahahahahaha! (Sorry, I think I might have gone a little insane from being stuck inside for so long).


  1. This looks lovely! Rockstar is the perfect name for it :D Hope you're feeling better!

    1. Thanks! Yes I'm much better now other than a pesky cough that just won't go away!


Love it? Hate it? I want to hear about it!
