#whencolourscollide challenge – Silver & Grey featuring Born Pretty Store BP-L054

Hello! I’ve got another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to review for you today, so I thought I’d combine it with the latest #whencolourscollide prompt. First of all, a bit about the plate.

*BORN PRETTY 12*6cm Rectangle Stamping Template Geometry Design Manicure Nail Art Image Plate BP-L054

BP-L054 is one of Born Pretty Store’s large rectangular plates, sized at 12cm x 6cm. It has a card backing to prevent cuts from sharp edges. As you can see from the photo, it has 20 variously sized geometric designs on it, ranging from full nail down to accent details. The biggest image is approx 25mm x 16mm, and the smallest approx 9mm x 8mm. BP-L054 currently costs $2.59.

The mani.

So, the prompt for this weeks #whencolourscollide was silver & grey. I immediately decided on a light to dark gradient, with silver stamping.

What I used:

I started with two coats of Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary, then once that was dry, sponged on a gradient of MMQC & Moon. It ended up resembling marble, which wasn’t my aim but I liked it! I then randomly chose images from BP-L054 and stamped them on each nail, before finishing with HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat.

BP-L054 was easy enough to use once I got the hang of it – it seemed to need a firmer scrape than other plates I have, sometimes I even needed to scrape twice. But as you can see, all the fine lines transferred well, and the larger areas also transferred without problems. I used 7 or 8 of the images over both hands, and didn’t have a problem with any of them.

I think this plate is just begging for an art deco style mani! One more for the to-do list 🙂
