The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Wallpaper - leaves on nude

Hi all!

I'm still catching up on January's wallpaper theme. I'll be combining it with another Born Pretty Store review.

The polishes:
  • Dance Legend - Gel Effect - 882
  • OPI - NL A 60 Don't Bossa Nova Me Around
  • Catrice - 740 King of Greens
  • Glisten & Glow - HK Girl top coat
  • El Corazón - Matte Top Coat

And I used two images of the Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L001. You can find it here, it is item 17919. The images are 14mm x 18mm except for the right row, those are 14mm x 14mm.

My base is two coats of the Dance Legend 882. It is a lighter version of OPI's Don't Bossa Nova Me Around. To show the difference I used Don't Bossa to stamp with, using a swirly image (top row, third from left). I added some green leaves using King of Greens (with third image from left, bottom row). I first topped it with HK Girl top coat, then added the matte top coat from El Corazón.

I rather like the subtle stamping, and I love all the leafy designs on the BP-L001 plate! I have tried more of them than the two I used today. All of them are etched rather well and transferred perfectly. I'm rather impressed with the quality of these rectangular plates! You can see the BP-L003 one here.

Born Pretty Store kindly gave me a discount code to share with you all! If you use code BBL91 you get 10% off your purchase! You can find their nail art products here! And they offer worldwide free shipping!
