Grey with White and Black Bursts



Hi everyone! I wanted to try out my Christmas stamping plate from Born Pretty Store but I thought it was a bit early to be sporting Christmas nails so I played around with this firework burst image instead. 

I started with an unlabeled light grey from Cosmetic Arts (nicknamed this one Grace) and stamped with white stamping polish from Born Pretty Store. I think I prefer this mani with only the white stamping. It reminds me of dandelions especially over grey. Shown below without top coat.



Then I added black stamping. My idea was for the white and black areas to be kind of staggered and overlap in the middle only. I think there isn't enough contrast between the white and grey though so it got really overwhelmed with the black stamping... The white stamping isn't very noticeable anymore. I think I'll try this idea again sometime in different colors!

Plate is Born Pretty Store BP-82. Use my code SL10k31 for 10% off!


The plate was engraved well and I'll definitely be using it for a Christmas mani later this month! I also really like this burst image and would definitely use it all year round.

What do you think of this mani? Do you like it with the white and black stamping or with the white stamping only?

  1. Nice stamping andyour right, I think it does look better with just the white over the grey too. I own this stamping plate as well but haven't had the chance to use it yet.

    1. Thanks Andrea! I liked the idea but I think the white is a bit too light to be really visible
