Red Christmas Sweater mani with Nailz Craze NC03 plate

December 05, 2012

This is my first mani with the new Nailz Craze NC03 stamping plate I've designed. I just got them yesterday, and I was so excited to try them out! I had hard time deciding what design I should use first, but then I decided that a Christmas sweater pattern will be perfect for my first mani.
The design is originally made for long nails so you can get the whole patten, or you can choose what parts of the pattern you want to use. As you can see I have a bit different pattern on each nail but I really like that you can choose what part you like better and play with it.

I went for the classic combination of red and white, and I think it looks great. I was so excited when I stamped the design on the nails so there are some imperfections and missing spots, but even though I think it turned out pretty nice! I can't wait to try this stamp when I have a bit longer nails, I was thinking about using 3 different colors for the stamp. I tried it on paper and it looked great, like a real knitted Christmas sweater.
Another thing I really like about this stamp is the variety of designs you can create by using a single row and create your own combinations. You can do a few rows of hearts or only the snowflakes, to create your desired sweater look.

For this mani I used two coats of my favorite simple red, GADE Rodeo Drive and stamped with Essence white Stamp Me! polish. The topped it with one coat of Poshe.

As you can see, my third plate is also a themed plate and this time I included some lovely Russian themed designs. You can find on this plate the Matryoshka dolls, a flowery pattern and berries. This plate also has Cheburashka which is a cute creature with a lovely story (I've already planned a cute mani for this little guy) and the Russian embroidery pattern which happens to looks much like Christmas pattern, so that's a great multifunctional pattern. :)
As my previous plates, these are large designs as well. The middle row has the big designs which are about 2x1.6 cm and the rest of the designs are supposed to fit most nail sizes.
I have so many ideas for designs to make with this plate, so I guess you will be seeing these quite a lot for the next few posts :)
I hope you like this plate and the designs I've created, and if you would like to purchase this plate or any of my previous plates, you can get them at my new Etsy store.
