*Press SampleHi everyone, welcome to Thursday! Today I am really happy to show you my third stamping plate that I received from Vivid Lacquer. I have loved creating all sorts of different manis for these plates and I am very much back into stamping :) I have my last plate today, with six different stamped looks.
First up is my favorite mani of the bunch, I just couldn't save it to the end :) I started with a base of Zoya Thandie and then Julep Clara on my ring finger. I just did a simple stamp with a black stamping polish, and that's it!
Next up is a closer look at the plate, number 002. This plate includes four full-size designs and 8 small designs. The designs include a half moon, i <3, full-size tetris design, small tetris block, honeycomb, t-rex, butterfly wing, three sets of ballons, full-size stars, and a snail.
Next up is the stamped version. Any inconsistencies are on my part. The only design that gave me trouble was the half moon. My scraper kept scraping too much polish off. The rest were just fine though. My tetris does look all wibbly wobbly but that's just because I moved the stamper around too much when I did it.
Mash up Mani:
For this mani I combined the half moons, i <3, snails, and t-rex. Admittedly I don't heart snails. I've eaten them but I'm pretty sure that doesn't count :) I do think dinosaurs are cool though. I started with a base of OPI Lost on Lombard and dabbed on both OPI In the Cable Car-pool Lane and OPI San Tan-Tonio. I stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome. Like I mentioned, I had a little trouble with the half moon so I ended up filling in the rest with polish.
For the base of the balloons, I started with OPI Blue My Mind. I stamped with Essie No Place Like Chrome and then filled in a couple of the balloons with a pink polish.
This is another one of my favorites :) I started with a base of Zoya Sara and stamped the honeycomb with OPI A-Piers to be Tan. I finished off with an accent nail of Spellbound Nails Autumn Vixen.
Another favorite! I started with a base of Maybelline Color Show Porcelain Party. I dabbed a bunch of different colors on with their individual brushes. I then stamped with a black stamping polish.
Last up is the full-size star pattern. I stuck with something simple for this one and started off with a base of OPI Peace & Love & OPI. I finished by stamping with Essie No Place Like Chrome. I wanted this to look a little rustic so I waited a bit to stamp so that not all of the polish would transfer. I liked the effect this created.
I was really happy with this plate. My favorite images were the t-rex, the honeycomb, and the tetris patterns. I am also partial to full-size patterns though :) I am extremely happy with my Vivid Lacquer experience and I can honestly say that these are really cool, quality plates.
You can find this plate on Etsy here. Ahhh! I just realized there is a plate with a houndstooth design. I've been looking for one forever! Sorry, I get excited over little things haha! That ones going on the Christmas list :)
