A Foily Full Nail Pattern

Hello ladies,

Today I have a mani refresh with the pretty unnamed blue/teal colour I showed you on Tuesday. I wanted to do (ANOTHER) crackle mani with Lighting Bolt, but it hadn't come it yet. I ended up pulling out all my Konad and fauxnad image plates and in the end decided to go with a full nail BM design. I think this has got to be one of my favorite ones :)

If I center it right, it looks as though it fits perfectly on my nail, although the full nail images on these plates might not fit for larger nails. I'm finally getting the hang of getting the patterns stamped right in the middle :) I double stamped my thumb nail withoout any problems at all!

For stamping, I used Sally Hansen, Black Pearl Chrome polish, I love my chromes with Konad. One thing to keep in mind wen using chrome polishes is to be very careful before you apply a top coat, sometimes the slightest scratch will remove some of your design. I happened to me so i had to carefully scratch the rest off and stamp again. I guess it kind of works both ways, you have the option to take off the stamped design if you don't like the placement.

I really like the look of this, it looks more subtle in the photo than it does in real life. I think that a gold chrome would have gone great with the base colour also.

How do you ladies like it?

Before I end this post, just wanted to let you guys know that Nicole over at Glitta Gloves presented me with the Stylish Blogger awad the other day, and although I have already received it before I just wanted to thank her :) Check out her blog here.


  1. Oooohh pretty pretty!! I'm really thinking about picking up some bundle monster plates. They've got some really nice designs!

  2. They do, and they are coming out with another set soon, i'm not 100% sure of the actual release date but I think it's supposed to be released mid April. I can't wait!

  3. Yeah I saw a preview of them!! Ooohh this isn't good for my wallet!!


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
