Leadlighting attempt with BP-48 plate

Hi everyone!

Missed yesterday’s post unfortunately but my Internet was broken all day long and I had no way to upload anything :( This morning it seems to work, fingers crossed.

Today I have some attempt which you might like or think it’s a complete disaster, you choose.

My black stamping polish is ready for garbage (I now got a new one) and worked awful when I stamped with my new BP-48 plate from BornPrettyStore. Therefore I decided to attempt my first ever leadlighting mani to cover the mess! I picked up a few Catherine Arley neons, which are super sheer, a thin nail art brush and started filling the stamping. I swear it was awesome in real life! I am so happy about it for being my first ever attempt and I can’t wait to do more!

Ciao a tutti!

Purtroppo ho saltato il post di ieri perchè sono rimasta senza adsl tutta la giornata e non avevo modo di caricare foto e post. Stamattina sembra andare.. speriamo.

Oggi vi mostro una prova che ho fatto e che potrà piacervi o farvi pena :p A vostra scelta!

Il mio smalto nero da stamping ha tirato le cuoia mentre usavo la mia nuova plate BP-48 di BornPrettyStore. Per coprire l’indecenza ho deciso di provare finalmente la tecnica leadlight. Mi sono armata di pennello fino da nail art e smalti neon Catherine Arley e ho cominciato a riempire gli spazi. Vi giuro che di persona era bella! Sono stata molto contenta del risultato, specie pensando che era la prima volta che mi cimentavo in questa tecnica e che sono notoriamente impedita con qualsiasi forma d’arte a mano libera.

Yes, I know it’s not perfect, but I still like it :)

This is the plate I used which is not to blame about the messed stamping. As I’ve mentioned it was the polish’ fault.

Lo so che è tutt’altro che perfetta ma a me piace!

Questa è la plate che ho usato, che come dicevo prima non è la colpevole dello stamping venuto male.

Btw BornPrettyStore is releasing yet some new plates today!
Tra l’altro oggi escono un tot di nuove plate su BornPrettyStore

BORN PRETTY L009-L020 Nail Art Stamping Plates

BORN PRETTY BP56-60 Nail Art Stamping Plates

 

I really like the Easter plate but darn, it’s too late to release it now! Even if I order today I’d get it 2 months too late than Easter! Wrong timing BornPretty, wrong timing.

That’s it! Cross your fingers that my Internet connections stays put!

Mi piace un sacco quella di Pasqua ma come si fa a farla uscire una settimana prima?? Che gli ordini ci mettono almeno un mese ad arrivare!! E mica solo da noi, eh! Pessimo tempismo BornPretty.

E questo è quanto! Incrociate le dita che l’adsl funzioni!

    1. Thank you Robin! I am very pleased with it, too. I can only get better, right??

  2. Simona, I like it! I filled stamping with colour several times, I'm going to show it on my blog too. It's difficult! I mean precision, polishes should be opaque I guess and so on. I know such manis look better in reality than in these huge macro shots and I was satisfied how my manis were looking like too :) Yours is lovely!

  3. Neon leadlighting totally rocks!

  4. Looks really pretty! I never tried stamping. Is that Essence topcoat any good? :)

  5. Anche a me piace! Gli Arley sembrano addirittura dei sheer tints (che forse non è nemmeno così posititvo, visto che son stati acquistati come neon veri e propri...). Il risultato finale è molto acquerelloso, bVavissima!

    1. Vero! Potrebbero ricordarli in qualche modo! Peccato che non dovrebbero essere sheer, almeno credo!

    1. I bought the Catherine Arley's because they are neons, I didn't expect them to be this sheer! But at least I can use them this way!

  8. I like this! I can't believe it's your first time leadlighting?! Any of the new born pretty plates that are calling your name? Also I'm not sure if you've seen the leadlighting plates by messy mansion but they're cool. I have three of them.

    1. Yes my first time! I actually grabbed 3 of the new rectangular plates by BPS, but it will take 2 months to have them here I guess! I liked a 4th one, too, but I wasn't sure if I could use the designs even though I liked them a lot!

  9. This turned out absolutely beautiful - perfect for spring

  14. Le macro sono sempre senza pietà! A me pare sia venuta molto bene comunque, i colori sono stupendi e il disegno si prestava benissimo per questa tecnica! Brava Simo!!

    1. Grazie Ele! Lo stamping era effettivamente venuto male, colpa dello smalto e non della macro. Ho provato a coprirlo e non c'è stato male, dai :D

    Molto pasquale se posso dirlo... :-)

  19. Love how this turned out. Leadlighting is so hard I still cannot get it to come out like I want it to.

    1. The hardest part for me was picking where the different colours go and to actually put them in the blank spaces without making a mess!
