Hello my lovely little fairies; hope everyone enjoyed this past weekend's lush weather. We were out in the garden and spending time over at the park down the road. Have I mentioned how much I love our new home, makes life so much easier being able to let Lexi go outside and play. Anyway for today I have a really fun new stamping plate to show you from Nail Artisan Cosmetics. Read on to find out more...
For quite a while now Alex has been getting ready to launch her own brand of stamping plates, and a few weeks ago she kicked things off with two beautiful uniquely designed plates. Among these plates was the Savannah Outback plate a fabulous plate with chocked full of animal images. So let's take a look at some of the designs I've come up with so far using this pretty plate.
First I went with this Zebra inspired mani using three different images from the plate, I really liked how this one turned out and I always love using Cupcake Polish Look at You Go-Go a beautiful white grey toned linear holographic.
I had no issues with picking up the images and the double stamped image on my middle nail worked well.
Next we have a Giraffe inspired mani, this one was Lexi's choice. The images stamped really nicely and I enjoyed this mix of using a crelly on two nails and then a holographic for the other two. I used the double stamping method for the two animal foot prints, this plate offers a large variety of animal foot prints which I haven't seen on any other plates before.
The Giraffe image made a really nice advanced decal, I used Esmaltes Da Kelly Tris and Olie to fill it in and the Nail Artisan detail brush.
The final mani I went with was using the silhouette image at the bottom of the plate, this makes a beautiful African sunset mani.
Again there was no issues with picking up the images and they all transferred to the nails nice and crisply. I am definitely feeling Lion King vibes from this look.
As I said this plate is full of plenty of images to suit all of the animal lovers out there and there are definitely some unique images to choose from. The actual plate is 6cm by 9cm and contains an array of singular, full size and layering images. The full size images measure 1.4cm by 1.4cm so they are on the small side, however Alex has ordered some plates with large images for those with longer nails.
Overall I am totally loving this plate it offers plenty of images to pick from and there are definitely hundreds of different mani designs you can come up with. As I said pick up was no problem and the images come out nice and crisp and the etching is really nice and clean.
This plate is available now from the Nail Artisan Cosmetics website for £8.99 plus postage.
I would love to know your thoughts?? Which image would be your favourite?? I definitely think mine is the silhouette at the bottom of the plate, can't go wrong with an African animal scene.
I hope you all enjoyed today's post my little fairies. Chat to you all again soon.
