Hi everyone! I hope you all had a good weekend 🙂 Today I want to show you a stamped mani I did with a plate that I am kind of obsessed with. This bornprettystore plate is half covered in gorgeous paisley type designs. I couldn’t get it out of my head until I stamped it. I want to stamp it in ALL THE COLOURS EVER. I want to stamp it over and over again. I’m wonder if I can stamp other items with it. I really love it. I’m so in love with this type of design I ordered myself the new Bundle Monster Shangri-La Master set of plates from me to me for my birthday 😀 Let me show you how this turned out.I started off with my usual L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. I painted 3 thin coats of Color Club Alias on all of my nails. Alias is a purple polish with very fine but dense flakies. It was quite sheer, but built up beautifully in 3 thin coats. In the bottle this has quite an apparent colour shift, but it was completely lost on the nail, I couldn’t get the shift to show up no matter what angle I tried. It is still a GORGEOUS purple though, it reminds me a lot of Sinful Colors I Love You. Once my nails were dry I adhered the 2 rectangular rhinestones on my pinkie and index nails with top coat. I stamped over my ring and middle nails using Tip Top Armour Plate and BP-10. Even though the plate has the paisley patterns in an “infinity” design (meaning there are no spaces between the patterns), I chose to use the edge of the design that has some spaces in between the intricate patterns. I love the twirls at the edges and felt the paisley was more apparent this way. I sealed it all in with a coat of Seche Vite.
I’m really loving the dark purples this winter, aren’t I? I seem to keep reaching for them over and over. OOPS! I’ll try to diversify…depending on what is lying in my untried pile. I know for a fact there is at least 1 more darker shade of purple waiting to be pulled out. What do you think of this mani? Do you like paisley patterns? Let me know in the comments below!
