Nail Challenge: Minnie Mouse Stamping

Hey Lovelies!
So a couple of months ago, Born Pretty Store contacted me to review a few of their products and since I've been totally absent from blogging and really busy with other things, I never seemed to get round to reviewing (which is really bad, I know). But I'm back to blogging and I'm contactable again for things. Including my blog sale, which I totally dropped the ball on. It has/will be updated soon too.
Today is the start of my first nail art challenge, i'll be doing it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I set it as an aim for myself so that I don't start slacking on my posting! The left hand column is Wednesday, middle is Friday, and right is Monday.



First, I started with two coats of Sinful Color's 'Forget Now' which is a freaking gorgeous magenta pink, with a lovely pinky-purple shimmer which is visible in most kinds of light! Which is always a bonus. It's slightly darker in person than my pictures show, but even more gorgeous! For the price, it is definitely a must! I freaking love it! It only took two coats for full opacity and dried fast! I mean look at the flawless application. I think it suits my skin tone too!
I personally really like the brushes on Sinful Colors polishes too, they're not too wide or too thin which makes application better for me.

I then used MoYou nails 'White' stamping polish to add some Minnie Mouse dots over the top, which I really liked. I used Born Pretty Store's 'RuiZ03' Mickey Mouse plate for the dot image. I found the images transferred amazingly and resulted in a really crisp image.

Finally, I used the same image plate for the minnie mouse outlines and bow. These also transferred really nicely, and gave a crisp image. I used Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine 'Plum' which was brilliant at stamping (I tried 2 polishes before this but the image didn't show up over the pink), however, the purple didn't really show up that great either over the pink. It is more visible in the pictures than it is in person. 
Overall, I think this stamping plate from Born Pretty is great and it transferred amazingly. I love the cute Mickey and Minnie Mouse images.
