Monday Blues: Royal Plum

Hello my lovelies! Is it just me or are summer Mondays even worse than regular ones? It's incredibly hot outside, which means we need to hide inside all day. At least my workday is over so I can relax and show you today's nails. This manicure is something I do often: a blue base with gold or silver stamping. You could say it's a staple look for me. For this one I used one of my new plates from the Born Pretty Store.

The base color for this manicure is Barry M Blue Plum from the Gelly Hi-Shine collection. It's an amazing shade of dark blue that I haven't used in ages. The name for this post was inspired by my friend Kinga, who told me these nails looked "royal" when I showed them to her so I have to thank her for bringing this idea to me.

For the stamping I used China Glaze Passion and an intricate flower image from plate BP-L020, which is full of elegant lace type full nail patterns. I must say that I love this plate and I can't wait to use every single image on it. This particular one seemed a little shallow but I used a very light hand while scraping so it would stamp properly. We'll see if the other images work better.

So what else can I say? I really enjoyed these nails and I hope you like them too. Don't forget that you can use code MFL91 to get 10% off your Born Pretty Store order. And check out the rest of this month's Monday Blues in the links below! 

Have a great week!
