OMD3 Nail Challenge: Stars {Featuring my Born Pretty stamping plate}

I realize that I have been extremely lax with the Oh Mon Dieu challenge (which ends tomorrow), so I thought oh what they hey, lets get one more entry in there!

Today I am doing prompt 22, which is in fact “Star Sign”, but I’m not really a star signs kinda gal. So I’m just going with “stars”, since I AM infact a star and alla that 🙂 #selfproclaimed
I must make mention of my first stamping plate! Aaack! Bought from the very popular Born Pretty online store and I was a bit dissapointed at how tiny it is! And truth be told it took more than a month to get here. Lesson learnt hey. But it’s my first stamping plate so I wasn’t thaaaat upset… I just wanted to do my nails!

Stamps

As per usual, I use a base coat to protect my nails and a cool Catrice gel top coat which makes my manis stay on for atleast a week with no chipping or peeling. In fact I have gotten a good week and half out of it once, without having to redo my nails! But then again, who wants to have the same nails for longer than a week, right? 🙂

For the challenge I painted all my nails with Essence The Gel 37 Serendipity. I use this colour alot and find it to be my base color of choice if I want to do some drastic nail art.

I then color blocked my ring finger with my wonderful new polish: Sinful Colors 950 Savage.
Love love love! I tried my hand at stamping a couple of flower star and flower images from my Born Pretty Stamp #BP64. I have to work on my stamping but all in all, I quite like the effect the grundginess gives it.

In conclusion:
I want more staaamps!!!!
