Lina Nail Art Supplies License To Be Sexy 01 Stamping Plate - Swatches & Review

Sunday, 28 May 2017

I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I love Lina Nail Art Supplies stamping plates.  They are definitely one of my favourite and a brand that I keep an eye on for any new releases (those babies sell out quick so I find it best to grab them when they are first released).  Recently, the License To Be Sexy 01 Stamping Plate was released along with a liquid latex barrier (an essential for stamping in my opinion).  I don't need another liquid latex barrier so was initial disappointed that I couldn't buy the plate by itself.  Luckily for me, Michelle from Hit The Bottle contacted me and asked me if I would like to swatch and review the plate.  Fast forward to today, and I have one very pretty stamping plate to share with you guys.

This first mani you guys may have already seen.  I did it for a challenge on Friday.  For my base I used OPI's Comet Closer and stamped using Hit The Bottle's Stop And Smell The Lilacs and Drunk Tank Pink.

When you have a lace plate you can't not do a red base with black stamping can you?  It's either red or nude.  I've done a few nude manis lately so I thought I would go with the red to mix it up a bit.  For my base I used Essie's Eclair My Love and stamped using Mundo de Unas Black Stamping Polish.

This last mani I wanted to do something a little different.  I don't think I have ever seen a neon dry brush with a lace print before, and I quite like it.  I'm pretty sure the image I have used was designed to be layered over one of the net looking images, but there is no rules that says it had to be.  For my base I used China Glaze Blanc Out and did the dry brush using Color Club's Friend Zone, Having A Ball, All Dolled Up and Out Of Your League.  Stamping was done with Powder Perfect's Black Stamping Polish.

I really love the mix of images on this plate.  I love that you can do some really girly manis as well as some more grungy looking ones.  It's definitely going to be a fun plate for me to play with.

If you are interested in purchasing this plate (without having to purchase the liquid latex as well) then head over to Hit The Bottle
