Antique Damask Print Nails

I have a lot of friends who recently got married, so it was in my head to do something with light blue polish in the “something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue” tradition.  I turned to my stamping plate collection for the rest of the inspiration.  I ended up using plate BP-X01 from Born Pretty Store for the damask print.

My choice was the design in the middle of the top row as well as the two images in the bottom left corner for this mani.

I wanted a subtle blue print, so I chose a base color that was only slightly lighter than my stamping polish color and then used gold and silver stamping polishes for the antiques.

Colors from left to right: Infatuated by Formula X for Sephora, Born Pretty Stamping Nail Polish #9, Ya Qin An polish in Gold, and Konad Special Nail Polish in Silver.

I first painted all my nails with Infatuated.

Using a darker light blue stamping polish with BP-X01, I varied the angle of the damask pattern on my nails.

For the mirror, I stamped the design with gold polish and then filled in the empty space with silver polish. I waited several minutes for it to dry completely before stamping it onto my nail.

I stamped the candelabra on my middle finger, which gave this mani a Beauty and the Beast vibe.

After adding top coat, I glued small pearl rhinestones to my antiques to make them look more distinctive.

And there you have it!  It’s an easy manicure that looks very pretty.  Good luck to all the brides and brides to be out there!  Happy polishing!
