I ended up painting my nails a light blue and sponging on a slightly darker color and an opalescent glitter on at random. I've found that I really like the effect that stamping over a base like that gives.
The edges of the images come out nice and crisp, the little bald spots you can see on my nails have to do with me not being a total pro at this yet. I'm also thinking I may need to try a different type stamper, but that's a worry for some other time. I had no problems with the polish drying too fast on this plate either, so it seems like this line is of a bit better quality than the ones I have previously tried.
Overall I was very pleasantly surprised with this plate and I can see myself using it more in the future (did you spot the cute lace with the bows? That's totes gonna be a mani some time soon).
The plate is available here for $2.99 and international free shipping. Best part is that you can use my coupon code CLEX31 for 10% off!
