I'm starting with this image plate by UberChic Beauty. This plate has an illustration from a very old book called Dream Boats and Other Stories, and UberChic Beauty turned the illustration into a Special Edition plate. How cool is that! This plate is so unique, and I think it's such a sweet and special image. I'm curious to see if there's more images like this in the UCB future! The plate has the usual UCB platesize and it worked like a charm, nothing new there from this brand :) I planned on a part of the feathery image on the right on some nails, and those tiny stars from the top on a few other nails, but I found myself going for the cherry tree designs on the left and right, near her feet. Those stars and feathers will have to come some other time! I see several parts that I'd like to see on the nail sometime, including the border, that slightly rough line could be turned into great designs on the nail. Do you have a favorite illustration from a book that you'd love to see turned into a plate? Here's a direct link to this plate on the UCB website, the plate costs $14.99.
The stamping polish that I used for this mani is from a brand that's sold by BornPrettyStore, it's called Ya Qin An and the color that I used here is #16. It's a sandy light grey color, beautiful! I was impressed by how well it works on both light and darker colors. It's a real stamping polish, which already becomes clear when you open the bottle. Stamping polish often smells a bit different, this one does too, and you can see on the brush that it's a little thicker and very pigmented. The only 'downside' I can come up with, is that the square bottle wasn't easy to hold for my photos :D They have some lovely colors (currently there's 10 colors to choose from), and it's definitely a brand I'd like to try more of! You can find this stamping polish here, a bottle costs $6.06 for 18ml. Coupon code ABJ61 will give 10% off on your order!
