The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Wallpaper - Red & Black

Hi all!

It's already been a week since I last posted... each week I try to do more for this blog, but to be honest I'm often too tired in the evening to do anything cohesive *winks*. Today I'll be showing you a mani I wore for quite a few days last week. Any of the stamping images I used is wallpaper worthy I think.

From left to right:
  • Sensationail - Scarlet Red (gel polish)
  • Essence - Stampy polish black
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward (top coat)

And I used a stamping plate sent for review by Born Pretty Store. Below you can see it in comparison with a MoYou London plate.

As you can see, the plate is the same size as the MoYou London plates, but the plastic backing of the Born Pretty Store plates is slightly larger. The images themselves are larger though. The normal sized MoYou London ones (as pictured above in the Sailor 04 plate) are 12mm x 15mm. The images on BP-L001 are 14mm x 18mm except for the right row, those are 14mm x 14mm. The images on BP-L003 are even larger, those are 15,5mm x 22mm.

For today I only used BP-L003, you can get the plate here, it is item 17921.

My base is still the red Sensationails gel polish, stamping with the Born Pretty Store plate was easy. The images are of great quality and I had no issues picking the images up at all. I decided to stamp a different image onto each nail so you can see many of them on the nail. I topped the stamped image with a coat of Elemental Ward.

And yes, I also did my cinderella hand for you, please bear in mind that any smudging is from my awkward stamping skills with my non-dominant hand *winks*. The images are flawless, I am not.

The geometric image on my middle fingernail will be perfect for making stamping decals with.

And another example of some smudging due to user error, but also a good one for stamping decals.

All in all, I think this image plate is great, so many lovely images!
