Freebie manicure

Hey everyone!
For the new followers who don't know me yet: I am Deborah's weekly guestblogger Manon (or Loqi) and I will try to entertain you with a manicure every Monday ;)
I Just got back from my holiday in Berlin a few days ago. I had such a good time! The weather was great and we got to see everything we wanted and more. And of-course I did some polish shopping!

I am not showing you one of my Berlin polishes this week tho, you will have to wait a bit ;)
This week I am showing you a stamping manicure I did with bm plate 205 and China glaze - Awaken over a free polish I got at my local drugstore (Etos). They were giving away tiiiiiiny bottles of polish with every 15€ spent, so I picked the colour that looked the least like things I already own and ended up with this very bright pinkish red.

I didn't really know what to do with it though, so I thought I'd stamp over it with a colour that would give a very strong contrast, and just see how it would turn out. I actually really like the result! The dark stamping makes the base even brighter and Awaken really stands out on the red, making this quite an extreme but very fun manicure!

 Hope you like it, and see you next week!

    this is gorgeous! BM plates are too small for my nails. :( I have wide nail beds. How do you manage to cover the entire nail and make it look so perfect!!

  9. Thank you! I'm sorry to hear these plates are too small for you :( They are just the right size for my nails, when I don't grow them too long.
