Hi, everyone! Happy Friday!
So, I've been eyeing the QA 29 plate for quite a while but I kept trying to convince myself that I didn't need any more plates! Well, this plate was on sale at the Born Pretty Store for, like, $2! Irresistible, right? (Well, that's what I keep telling myself!)
My plate finally arrived! I decided to try out a tape manicure to create the look of playing cards.
I started with Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. I used tape to create the "card" corner and used Kleancolor Metallic Black over the tape. Then, I stamped the card designs with Wet n Wild Black Creme and Sally Hansen Insta Dri Racin' Red.
So...I had some technical difficulties - my tape edges weren't straight, I ended up with another color (from where? who knows?) in the white while I was cleaning up the edges. Then I had some smearing with my topcoat. So, this one's got some flaws, but it's still pretty fun to wear.
I decided to call it "Stacked Deck" when I noticed two ace of hearts on my left hand!
Take care, Konaddicts! See you soon!
