Flowered Lace

I am writing these posts by the skin of my teeth! I usually prepare things the weekend ahead, but with the whole bachelorette/bridal shower thing this past weekend I am not prepared! I ALSO have a full SEVEN WEEKS of backlogged posts. I am afraid to look at my unedited folder…it is almost 3GB. On the plus side, this means I should have a bunch of posts going up when I go back into the hospital this summer!

Today’s mani is somewhat subtle, but quite pretty despite that. Its mostly just a scattered pink holo with a really pretty stamp! The actual full stamp design is what you see on my thumb…the other nails have part of the stamp as a pseudo-half moon pattern. The stamp is BC-10 from Lady Queen Beauty.

Despite my 7 week backlog, I have only used this plate once…all of the lace designs are too pretty and I can’t figure out which one to use so I keep avoiding the plate! I’ve never avoided a stamping plate because I liked it TOO MUCH before. Its novel. Also, all the images (even the tiny lines) pick up really well. I am impressed!

The stamping plate BC-10 is currently $5.32 at the Lady Queen Beauty site. I think it’s worth it (the plate is awesome and full of fine patterns and lace!), but you can get an additional 15% off with the code BPLC15, or wait for a sale (they have a whole bunch throughout the year). Hope you enjoyed!

    I love the base color, I bought all those Nabi holos off eBay earlier this year (admittedly they must be a little old: some of the blue/green are not as vibrant as online swatches I’ve seen, but I was still happy with the purchase) .

    Usually in real life I am not into lace, but I really like how you placed the stamp here!

    • Thanks! I (surprisingly) enjoy lace manis, and hate lace clothing. I won the Nabi’s in a giveaway years ago, but they are super useful!!
