Blue China Nails

December 20, 2012

I knew I wanted to do this look from the second I had the Nailz Craze NC03 plate ready.
It's kinda funny that I created the Blue China design using the plate that I originally named Russian plate, but - it all depends on the color you use, right? :) So Blue China it is!
I have a feeling this pattern will look great with other colors too, but this time I went for the traditional white and blue combination.

I started with two coats of a plain white ( I used Chic White Flag), then applied one coat of China Glaze White Cap which is a sheer milky base with gold shimmer, looks almost like it has tiny golden flakes in it. Then I stamped the flowery pattern from the new Nailz Craze NC03 plate using Barry M Indigo which was pretty sheer but it created this delicate look which I really love. Then I sealed it with one coat of Poshe.

I really love how this design came out and I think I will be creating many more looks like this one using other color combinations. I know it may seem to most of you like just another flowery pattern and it might not be as exciting for you as it for me, but I really love this pattern especially since I had a hard time creating it while designing this plate. I'm really glad it came out the way it is, and I hope that some of you will find this design pretty and refreshing even though there are so many flowery patterns on other stamping plates. I actually put a lot of thought into this on :)
I would love to hear your thoughts about my Blue China design. What colors would you use with this stamp? Don't be shy, feel free to share with me your thoughts.

  10. אלגנטי, מקסים, מ-ה-מ-ם.
    אגב, אני חושבת שתקבלי אפקט דומה בשימוש ב-GADE Frozen Yogurt כבסיס. הוא פחות אטום, אבל אחרי החותמת כבר לא כ"כ מרגישים והשקיפות דווקא תורמת לגוון בעיניי. :-)
    עכשיו אני חשה צורך לעשות משהו דומה עם איזו דוגמה פרחונית... אם כי אין לי שום לק כחול בגוון דומה לזה בכלל. אז משהו אחר... (בלאו הכי כרגע אני עם לק אחר).
