I love getting new nail art supplies! A while back, there was a bunch of hubbub (hubbub hubbub) on the interwebs about these new Cheeky stamping plates. I tried to order them, but when I picked up the envelope in my mailbox it had been sliced right open and the contents stolen! Anyways, long story short, I finally got them this weekend! I had to try out as many as possible and wore this kooky skittles for one night (to my engagement party!):
I used Mliani one coat glitter for the diagonal line – and it was really thick and goopy, I didn’t like it at all! You can tell how thick it is in the picture (and my hands look so dry! Time to moisturize). Anyways, this manicure was fun and funky but I wasn’t really loving it, so I tried again – and this time, I came up with something really classy!
So pretty, right?? This is Essie Topless & Barefoot stamped with Konad special black polish, and I used Cheeky plate CH6. I’ve noticed that I usually do an accent finger (because why would I pass up an opportunity for sparkles?!), but I think that sometimes it can be really nice to have a more uniform look. I’m going to be working a conference over the weekend, and this is the sort of thing that is unique but a little bit more toned down and professional. I also really love the look of this nude and black together – it’s not as graphic as black and white, but it’s still quite striking.
I’m so excited to show you manicures using my new Cheeky plates!
