Cozy Sweater Nails
I hope you're doing well in this new year and staying warm! I decided to try out an unusual image plate - Vivid Lacquer VL 025. I love trying a new or different nail plate. This one was especially fun, since I am a big fan of crocheting.
I bought the plate on Etsy. It has several unusual crocheting and knitting designs.
The biggest challenge with this plate was trying to decide how to do the stamping - should I apply the dark color over the light one? the light color over the dark? I also had a few false starts with colors that were too similar to show the design clearly.
In the end, I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Raspberry Race as a base and used the shimmery and darker Sally Hansen Insta Dri Pronto Purple for the stamping.
It's different look, it has a cozy feel to it, and I love the overall effect.
Thanks for coming by Konaddicts! I hope you're staying warm!
