Pahlish Nine Names with Born Pretty Store Stamping

*Polishes purchased by me, stamping plate is a press sample*

Hi everyone! Today I have two gorgeous things to show you: a lovely polish from Pahlish's Wood Between the Worlds collection and a gorgeous floral stamping plate from Born Pretty Store!

Let's start off with Pahlish Nine Names. This polish was one that I debated on getting for ages because it is out of my comfort zone and I just wasn't sure what it would look like on me. I was pleasantly surprised that the peachy orange creme looked really nice with my skintone. I just love this polish! It has gorgeous contrasting red and gold flake shimmer too. Formula was perfectly smooth and opaque in 2 coats.

Next I did some stamping with a plate from Born Pretty Store (item QA82) that has an assortment of lovely floral designs, including full nail images and smaller images for accents. The full-nail images are plenty large enough to cover the average nail entirely (unless, of course, you have really long nails). I thought that the images were well etched into the plates and that they stamped really crisply. For this mani, I chose the top middle design, which I thought looked reminiscent of a henna design that you might see on someone's hands/arms.

I used Mundo de Unas Orange stamping polish for my design. You can see that the image stamped really crisply and clearly.

Finally, I used a dotting tool and a red creme (Zoya Sooki) to go in and add some additional detailing to my finished design. I thought this turned out so cool! Like some sort of fancy stoneware or something.
