Happy Friday goodness! I don’t know why I like Fridays so much. It’s not like much changes but Friday always seems like a happy day. I hope your week has been great but your weekend even greater!
I have a Born Pretty Store stamping plate to show you today. I love the variety of nail art goodies available at Born Pretty Store and I must say, the stamping plates are next level. Not only has the quality improved tenfold but so has the variety. My collection might be getting a little too big. Today I am showing you BP L041 and you can find it here (or click on the image).
I am loving everything plaid at the moment. Plaid can be bright and bold or muted and classic. I even made myself a plaid skirt during the holidays. So of course, I couldn’t WAIT to get cracking with this plate. Before I show you what I did let’s take a moment to talk about the plate. If you’ve got any of the Born Pretty Store rectangular stamping plates then you know what to expect. The plate has a white plastic backing that is slightly larger than the plate. The size of the plate is more or less 12cm x 6cm. The plate is etched beautifully and I have not had any problems picking up images using multiple stampers and polishes. Ok, now let me show you what I did.
I started with 2 coats of Sinful Colors – Snow me white on my ring and middle fingers and 2 coats of Color Club – Baldwin blues on my pinky and index. Once it was completely dry I stamped on my middle and ring fingers using Mundo de Unas – Joy and the image on the bottom row, third from left. I then stamped on the same using Mundo de Unas – Blue and the image on the bottom row, second from left. I then used a matte topcoat on all my nails.
I really liked this. I like the combination of blues and I really love the double stamped plaid images. Naturally, because I have to plaid all the things, let me show you another version
Here I started with China Glaze – Shut the front door on all my nails. Once it was completely dry I stamped using Mundo de Unas – Red wine and the image on the middle row, second from left. I then stamped again using Mundo de Unas – Black and the image on the bottom row, second from left. I topcoated everything and that was that. I was a little disappointed that the red wine didn’t show up so well on the base colour but it was just enough. I also have some swatches for you
Color Club – Baldwin blues
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It’s a navy blue creme with a great formula.
China Glaze – Shut the front door
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. This is a pink toned purple with so much shimmer that it almost looks metallic in person. Good formula with good opacity.
