Using the OG rectangle stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. BP-L001 has a mix of nature image plates including flowers, leaves and my fave, the tree. This image reminds me of the tree my sisters and I drew on our bedroom wall when we were kids. If you are starting out with nail stamping, this is a great plate to start with. They are well etched, a good size to cover the nail and have images to work for any look.
Polishes/Tools used in this pink and gold tree look:
- CND Creative Play base coat
- Quo by Orly Breathable Stronger Than Ever (Shoppers Drug Mart Exclusive)
- Born Pretty 5ml Gold Polish
- Seche Vite top coat
- Born Pretty Store BP-L001 stamping plate
- Born Pretty Store XL Clear Marshmallow stamper
Starting with a base of two coats of Stronger Than Ever over CND Creative Play base coat. Stronger Than Ever is a pink with gold shimmer that removes easily but deepens colour with additional coats.
Over that, stamp the tree image from BP-L001 using Gold stamping polish from Born Pretty Store. This is not as opaque as I remember it but my Mundo de Unas gold polishes looked strange against the pink.
Add top coat making sure to cap the nails as Seche Vite has a tendency to shrink a little.
