I had Christmas images left over on my Pueen stamping plates that I wanted to use for another Christmas mani. I knew I wanted to stamp the bells in red, but wasn’t sure what I should use as a background colour. After some consultation with Ordinary Misfit, I settled on using my Tip Top Armour Plate for a background.
I used my regular base coat of Tip Top Miraculous Results to protect my natural nails. I painted two coats of Tip Top Armour Plate on all my nails. I added a layer of Seche Vite top coat to dry all my nails before I started stamping. To stamp over the Armour Plate I used essence magic carpet magnetic nail polish (I had heard from Misfit that these stamp really well) and the bell images on PUEEN38. I stamped the full nail bell image on all my nails except my ring and used the single bell image on those nails. The result:
When the beautician at work saw these she said they look like gift wrap. I guess they do! The magnetic polish does stamp very well and although I am still struggling with the stamping to some extent I managed to stamp most of these without a problem, despite the fact that I still managed to stamp the bells upside down O.o.
What do you think of this mani? Would you wrap your gifts in paper that looks like this? 😉
