Prettifying the world one nail at a time.

Hi lovelies!

Remember that lovely polish from Incidental Twin's Downton Abbey Flower Garden line - Lady Mary? I showed you what it looked like with white stamping, but I couldn't resist trying some darker stamping as well, inspired by the flower garden theme... and this is the result:

I used the same plate as I did yesterday - Qgirl-058 - and stamped it first with CNC "I Wish You The Berry Best", although the fact that it is stamping is not very apparent. But that's okay, it still gives it a nice marbly effect and adds some extra sparkle! Then I stamped with BPS black stamping polish and sealed it in with top coat.

Naturally, since the base colour "Lady Mary" is matte by default, I had to bring the whole thing back to matte again, using HEMA matte top coat. 

It's so different when matte and I don't know which version I like better!

So now the question remains: Glossy or matte?


  1. I like both but prefer glossy. I love the stamping image. How do I not have this plate???

    1. Thank you! <3 I think I agree with you on the glossy thing ;) More sparkle ;)
      And I don't know, but you need it, so go get it!

  2. Oh, I love the matte Version!

  3. Beautiful both ways! The layered stamping effect is subtle but adds a huge amount of depth. Love!

  4. MATTE MATTE MATTE!! All the way! This is beautiful. I want a chaise lounge wrapped in fabric that looks like this. Would be lovely!

  5. I can't believe how smooth that pattern stamps! I thought it was decals! And I was unsure if you double stamped or did some marble instead, you answered me! I really love this look and for once in my lifetime I prefer it glossy!

  6. I've been seeing this mani all over FB and every time I see it I love it more and more.

  7. I love this version, especially in matte

  8. I must be tired because I don't see a differance!

  9. I'm such a big fan of roses that I fell in love with this stamping plate as soon as I could see what it produces. Those roses are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL that I just want them on my nails for sure. I am gonna have to buy this plate now.
