The Nail Challenge Collaborative presents: Punk & Rock - Red Plaid

Hi all!

My second mani is rather simple, but I still love it. If you google punk fashion you get a lot of black and red plaid. Seeing as I ordered  the Plaids & Florals collection from Hēhē and it just arrived on my doorstep, I had to use it... obviously.

  • OPI - NLR53 An Affair in Red Square
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - The Final Frontier
  • Essence - Stampy polish black
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward

And I used Hēhē 075 for my plaid stamping.

Base: either 2 coats of An Affair in Red Square or The Final Frontier. I stamped the plaid pattern using my Essence black stamping polish which really needs replacing. The bottle is about 3/4 empty now, so getting enough polish on my brush is getting difficult. Ended with Elemental Ward.

This red is so luscious... also the image appears warped because I pressed instead of rolled with my stamper. Rolling works better with these lines.

I have used these plates in another mani (the one I'm wearing right now) and I can safely say these stamping plates from Hēhē are really amazing. They're the same size as Bundle Monster round plates for reference. You can buy single plates or an entire collection, just be sure to only buy through the official Hēhē website as there are a lot of fakes out there. And they're not that expensive... so why buy fake?

Have you been tempted to buy any Hēhē stamping plates? Let me know!

Love, Brethil
