BMC Shangri-La Stamping Plate 10 Piece Set
For this first look I used the plate BM-S104, which has lots of swirls and florals. I started with a white base using Pink Gellac Soft White, and then dabbed on three different colors to create a marbled looking background. The colors used were Pink Gellac Extreme Pink, Sunshine Yellow and Neon Orange. I put a few dots of each color over the white and then took a dry brush and dabbed at the colors to blend them. After curing, I applied the stamps using Mundo de Unas black stamping polish and the BMC plate. The solid colored nails are done with Pink Gellac Gipsy Blue.
Here’s another look at this design next to the plate that was used. I chose this plate because the pattern has nice bold lines and it leaves enough space in between the lines for my background colors to show through. I love the whimsy!
I actually took the photos of this first design about a week after applying it and it was still holding up great!
For the second look I used the plate BM-S110 which combines geometric shapes with floral patterns. The two stamped nails also started with a Soft White base and then I used a black Sharpie marker and some alcohol to create the marbled look before applying the stamps. Again, I used my black Mundo de Unas stamping polish. The gold accent nail is Pink Gellac Luxury Gold, and the red is Pink Gellac Rockstar Red.
Here’s a closer look at the plate that was used for this design, and below are previews of each of the ten plates in the set. The Shangri-La plate set is one of my favorites so far. There are endless possibilities as to what you can achieve with them!
