Nailz Craze NC04 "Glam" Stamping PlateJanuary 30, 2013
I feel like I have to start this post with an apology - I'm sorry I haven't made a post in a while, I just had the busiest week I had in a long time, I didn't even have the time to change my nail polish! So I guess you can understand how busy I was lol...
But seriously, I feel like it's been a while since I had a decent post here. I believe that now I will have more time to create new nail art and share it with you.
I made this design a week ago and I'm not sure if all of you saw it already, I did post one quick photo of it on the Facebook page but I didn't really like the picture I posted there so I took some new photos the next day when the sun came out.
This is the first design I've done with my new Nailz Craze NC04 Glam plate. I was so excited when I got it and I just did a quick mani, tried to include various designs from the plate to show you how they will look on the nails. In these pictures you can see four of the designs from this plate.
For the base I applied two coats of Essie Beyond Cozy (which is gorgeous! It's color is a pale gold, almost looks like silver but I would say it's defiantly gold glitter) and applied one coat of Poshe to smooth it out. Then I stamped over it with Konad Black. I was really happy with how crisp the designs were, I was worried that they might not come out from the factory as well, but they were nice and easy to stamp.
The diamond on the ring finger was a bit tricky because of it's large blank space, but if you use the technique I showed in this video, you should get a nice result. It might take you a while to get it right but as you can see this is doable.
When I designed the Nailz Craze Nc04 "Glam" stamping plate I was inspired by diamonds and gemstones, so you will be able to find these elements in different versions all over this plate.
The diamond stamp (in the middle row on the left) is what I call a reverse stamp, which allows you to stamp over a glitter polish or over layered design with a gradient or a flakie polish for instance, so the end result will look like you stamped with the glitter itself. I've created a similar design on NC02 Magical plate (the reverse clouds image) which allows you to use the same technique as I mentioned before.
Overall I'm pretty pleased with my latest plate and I hope that you will enjoy it. You can purchase this plate at my Etsy store. At the moment I can only offer you NC04 Glam plate along with NC03 Russian plate, the other plates are out of stock, but I'm working on getting them back in stock.
I hope you liked this design and I can't wait to see what my lovely customers will create with this plate :)
