(Pinple- Pink purple mix. Yeh I struggled with the title)
This is the second of the Born Pretty Store plates I was sent and probably one of my favourites. If I had this at Christmas I doubt I would have bothered doing any of the nail art I ended up doing. I love these Christmas jumper style stamps but some of them cost a fortune, a bit silly when I'd only end up using it a couple of time a year (if that). Both of the stamps I used for this manicure come from the QA57 plate.
I started off with 2 coats of Sally Hansen Mauve along on my pinky and index fingers. For my middle and ring finger I went for Catrice Genius in a bottle, also 2 coats. For the reindeer stamp I used Mauve along. On the other nails I used both Barry M Retro polishes in Pink and purple. I love the gradient effect you get from mixing 2 polishes.
I have to say I couldn't get the snowflake stamps from this plate to work at all for me. They always looked messy or they didn't stamp properly which was a shame. At least the Christmassy ones worked (that's the only reason I really wanted this plate in fairness :P ) The plate costs $1.49 but they have a 15% code going on at the moment (type in BPS2014) so you can get thema fair bit cheaper if ye are wanting to pick them up.
