Paisley Nails!

Hello readers! I feel like it's been ages since I've posted a stamp nail design so I am happy to do this post today! I've been wanting the Konad paisley design stamp plate for the longest time and when I found out that Born Pretty had a dupe(and it was on sale a few weeks ago!) I snatched it up! I couldn't wait to use it and am not disappointed!

I had to try out the gorgeous new blue OPI that Ashley got me(as seen in yesterday's haul post) so I decided that would be the base color. It was pretty enough to be left on it's own, though! I wish I'd taken a pic to show you just the blue before the stamping.

I used:
Base Coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
2 Coats of OPI No Room For The Blues
Sally Hansen Color Quick Chrome Pen in Fuchsia Chrome and Born Pretty Plate m60
Flower detail dot in a-englad Lady of the Lake
Dot detail in butter LONDON British Racing Green
Top Coat of Poshe

This was the first time I stamped with the Sally Hansen Chrome polish pen and love the coverage! I think I grabbed this on clearance a while back and am now wishing I'd grabbed some more colors. Also, I can't wait for my nubbin nails to grow back out. I was keeping them shorter over the holidays when I was too busy to keep up with them and now I miss my longer nails! Grow grow grow!!

What are your thought on this plate design? I love paisley!!! Thanks for reading!
Pin It!


  1. omg LOVEEEE! wat an epic stamp!
    : D
    love that blue too.

  2. I just got this plate last weekend, haven't used this one yet. I love this design though, it was the main reason I bought this one. :)

  3. I'm not much for flowers but this is actually really pretty I like it a lot the colors you used help compliment it very well.

  4. Turned out gorgeous. I was requested to do a paisley design for my fabrics themes :-)

  5. I didn't know this was called paisley :-) But I love it, especially the extra detail you added with the dots

  6. These look awesome! I love the pattern, colors, and embellishments!

  7. This is so adorable Jacki! I Just got the 25 piece bundle monster plates I'm ready to start stamping!!

  8. I have this same plate! i got it with salon express nail stamping kit. i love paisley. i really like how you added accents of other colors too!

  9. Love the color design. The combo works well too!

  10. Saw this on our facebook group and it is so pretty! I just love it!

  11. Wasn't it hard to stamp it in pink? I never stamp full nail designs in pink because I can't see them on the stamper.

  12. I would have never thought to combine this stamp colour and base but they play so well together! :D
    I like it!
