I got so much STUFF this week I feel giddy! It was my Anniversary and I am now dripping in jewels, I got swap packages in, 3 new nail stamping plates from Chez-Delaney which I have swatched below and a new makeup case!
I got in some awesome nail polishes from the awesome Miranda at miranniesnails.blogspot.com. We did a small blind swap before Xmas and I am stoked with what I recieved:
I used the plate pictured in the middle and for the sake of swatching, did a different stamp on every nail. Because they are so big, I could only get half the pattern on my nails. This was a little annoying as each pattern is so gorgeous, I wanted it all to be seen! I have to be content with showing just grabs of the design unfortunately. I do realise that these were made with long nails in mind as they have always missed out in the past. The Konad and Bundle Monster plates are better suited to those with shorties.
Otherwise they stamps I used all stamped beautifully. Nothing wrong with the designs being too deep or not deep enough. Using the XL plates was also so much easier than using small round plates, I wish all my stamping plates could be transferred onto one big one now!
I'll post pics of my gorgeous new makeup case tomorrow. Think glitter, red and retro pinup!
