I hope you are having a lovely start to your week! 🙂
I decided to start this week off with some pretty blossom nail art!
The background is a Smoosh of
- Rimmel – Ultra violet
- Color Club – Foil Me Once
- Illamasqua – Prosperity
- O.P.I – Purple Perspective
I really do love the Smoosh technique, it’s so easy to do (if a little messy) and it always works, unlike the cling film (saran wrap) technique, for some reason I seem to mess that up more often than I get it to work!
The stamping image is on plate 14 from Moyou’s Mother Nature collection!
Here is a pretty lace stamping plate that has been sent to me from Born Pretty!
You can find the plate right here Lace Stamping Plate. The first thing I have to mention is the image on the Born Pretty store page is a slightly different plate, so for my review I’m using an image that’s the same on my plate BP-L020 and the one on the website.
There are loads of really lovely images on this plate, a lot of them perfect for leadlighting and reverse stamping.
While I was playing with this plate I noticed that to fit the images on my thumb I had to stretch the image, for the most part it was fine but the the images with more detail ended up looking rather distorted.
Another thing I found, was that I got a much cleaner image pickup by scraping across the plate, so side to side rather than up and down. I have no idea why!
The polishes I used are
A England Jane Eyre
- Illamasqua Load
- Illamasqua Muse
- Illamasqua Omen
- Illamasqua Ouija
- Illamasqua Prosperity
- Hit The Bottle Black
- Seche Vite
This is a really pretty plate, if the images where a couple of mm wider it would be the perfect size!
