It’s Fridaaaaaayyy! It’s been a week. I am glad it is weekend. I have picked up a sniffle and I hope I can take it easy this weekend and kick it in the butt. What are you doing this weekend?
I have another amazing Born Pretty Store stamping plate to show you today. I am obsessed with the variety of nail art goodies available at Born Pretty Store. Today I am showing you L027 and you can find it here (or click on the image).
I really fell in love with this plate because it’s all so crafty and sewing oriented. Which is really my other love. Even though it is very sewing-esque it is not limiting at all. The patterns are very versatile. 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. The plate comes with a blue protective film that needs to be removed before use. Ok, now let me show you what I did.
I started with 1 coat of Sinful Colors – Snow me white and left that to dry completely. While I was waiting I pulled out my mani mat and made a decal from the big buttons on the bottom right. I stamped using Mundo de Unas – Black and filled it in using Nubar – Pasadena purple. I then did a stamped smoosh using Essence – a whisper of spring, Morgan Taylor – Invitation only, Nubar – Pasadena purple and OPI – Vant to bite my neck. I then applied the button decal on my ring finger using topcoat and stamped the whole button images on the rest of my nails using Mundo de Unas – Black. I topcoated and voila. I really like the purple smoosh and the buttons are so cute!
Obviously, I couldn’t just do one bit of nail art so let me show you what else I did.
Besides the obvious nail break, I started with 3 coats of Dollish Polish – Penny…penny…penny. Once that was completely dry I stamped using the big bow and Mundo de Unas – Copper. I then stamped over the bows again using Mundo de Unas – Black. I topcoated and stared at my nails for hours. I really love these colours and the double stamping actually gives the bow a lot of depth. I also have a swatch for you.
Dollish Polish – Penny…penny…penny
This is 3 coats with topcoat. This is a peachy milky base with a copper iridescent shimmer. Filled with copper glitter. The formula was great and it applied really easily and smoothly. I loved the glitter coverage and how they didn’t need placing or smoothing around to get good coverage. I am however, obsessed with this polish. I am obsessed with the name (Big bang theory reference if you’re unsure) and I am obsessed with the colour combo. Stunning polish! Let me give you a closer look
