Allo polish Pals!
Happy Sunday to you all, are you having a great weekend? I love lazy Sunday's and that exactly what I plan to have today. Of course, a lazy Sunday can only get better with some nail art fun!
Lets look at this pretty plate, shall we? The pattern is really cool since there are so many little designs on this plate, which leaves a lot of room to get creative! You can stamp the entire thing, like I have or even just use a few of the designs as single stamps. The plate features all sorts of things, stars and hearts being the most prominent. There are also numbers, diamonds, moon shapes and many more. Can you imagine how cool it would be to do a led light manicure to colour in certain parts of the design?
I chose to wear this pattern with everything. But instead of typical stamping I created decals. I'm not the most confident stamper and by doing this as decals (yeah it takes a little longer, but still) I know I would be able to get the pattern entirely where I wanted it and fully covering the nail. I began with two coats of Essie's 'Butler Please' and stamped my decals using Barry M's 'Gold Foil'. Once my decals were completely dry and quite firm I trimmed them down and positioned them where I wanted to be.
I absolutely love this stamping plate, I think its super cute. I love the different designs and think that this stamping plate can create some really interesting manicures, it would look fantastic with all sorts of glitters and colours, even gradients. I also find that BPS stamping plates patterns are really well etched into the plate which means I find it nice and easy to pick up a good clean image.
What do you think of this Born Pretty Store stamping plate? Have you tried any of their plates yet?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
