Ancient Pattern Nail art

Hi guys, when I woke up this morning I'm very excited to make a mani using my new image plates.. Here's what I came up with..I used XL image plate "C" for my design. I named it "ANCIENT PATTERN" I really like the color I used in my NOTD. Usually, ancient designs are represented by dark shades, I made mine a brighter, and lighter one...

Here are the 3 nail polishes that I bought last week. The bottles are very cute! ♥

Hope you like them! God Bless you all!


Hi guys!
How's your day? I'm very excited and happy because I finally received my XL image plates.. I bought XL i.p. A,B,C,D, and I. Here are some swatches I made on a bond paper and a scanned image of the design for you guys to see... I really like them! If you zoom in on the images you will see the details of each design more clearly...:)

  • I like the idea of putting all those designs in each image plate.
  • Saves storage space and isn't bulky compared to circular plates which only contains 4 - 8 designs.
  • Well-engraved.
  • The design selections are well picked. I like all the designs.
  • the edges are sharp because there is no protective cover tape at the back. But you can always buy some protect stickers.
  • The plastic protector that comes with it is very sticky and easy to tear. It took me some time to remove all the excess marks.
  • Some images are not visible (in letter K).
  • Cleaning takes time because of the large size.
-but all in all. I like them! ☺
