Bold Black & White Curls

Hi guys! I told you a while ago that I got a couple of new MoYou plates for the holidays, but I realised today that I've hardly shown you any manicures with them. Shame on me! So to fix that, I've got a very bold manicure for you today!
Curious to see more?
When I got this plate (MoYou ProXL 14), this curly pattern was the fist one to catch my eye. It's so pretty and unique! I just had to do something with it. and what better way to make an image really pop than using black and white? As a base for this manicure I used my favourite white, OPI Alpine snow. For the stamping I used Konad Black.

I must admit I had a little bit of trouble with this image. Some of the fine lines retained a lot of polish after scraping, and made a very think line when I picked them up on my stamper. Nevertheless I still like how it turned out. I hope you guys like it too, and see you next week!

  6. The nails came out beautifully however it's really strange that the image is not as well-etched or something. I have this plate and it stamped beautifully and nice and thin. But sometimes I find that scraper does this when there is a dried polish on the edge so it doesn't scrape all of the excess polish properly. Just my two cents ;)
