• Vintage inspired NOTD

I recently bought a full-nail image plate from Konad and I was so excited to use it! I have to say, it was in my wishlist for over a year now! It's the image plate m71, here's a picture of it

I love the fishnet design, I love the laces and the girl and the bow. And of course the flowery design I used for this manicure. So, let's get started.

What I used (if you don't have these items, use the similar ones that you already have):
-Essence 10 in 1 miracle nails as Base and Top Coat
-E.L.F. nail polish in Smokey Brown
-Essence white nail art stampy polish
-Konad image plate m71
-Konad stamper and scraper

-Use Essence 10 in 1 miracle nails as Base coat
-Paint the whole nail with E.L.F. nail polish in Smokey Brown
-Wait for it to dry
-Apply the Essence white nail art stampy polish on flowery pattern from Konad image plate m71
-Scrape off the excess polish with Konad scraper
-Roll the Konad stamper so the whole image transfers to the stamper
-Roll the stamper on the nail so the image transfers to the nail
-Wait for it to dry
-Use Essence 10 in 1 miracle nail as top coat, be careful not to smear the design.

Tips and Tricks:
-Make sure the Smokey Brown nail polish is completely dry before starting the stamping
-You can apply a clear top coat on top of Smokey Brown and let it dry before stamping. That way if you do a mistake, you can carefully remove the design with a q-tip with acetone without ruining the colour layer.
-Use acetone and a cotton ball to clear the image plate, the stamper and the scraper before stamping and between 2 nail stamping.
-Use only 3 strokes on each nail with the top coat, don't overlap the strokes because it may smear the design.
-For my thumb the design was too small so I had to stamp it twice, one next to the other, you may have to do it too.
-Work quckly.

Here's the final result

Indoors, artificial lighting

Outdoors, sun

Do you like it? It looks like a vintage coat or something, right? These designs are very pretty with matte top coat for stamping but it's more difficult because it dries super fast. Maybe I'll try it another time.

P.S. I've made some changes in the blog, hope you like them. I'm still fighting with the templates and widgets and stuff, hope I'll figure everything out soon.
