Today's post is a fun bit of nail art I did over the weekend after seeing a million reviews of the new film Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, due out tomorrow in theaters. I never read the book (the zombie version - I've read the original), but I hear it's a lot of fun and actually pretty good. This also gave me the chance to use my Moyra Stamping Plates!
I recently participated in a group buy for Moyra stamping plates and have been itching to try them out. Moyra is a company based out of Hungary that sells nail art tools, polish and stamping plates. I limited myself to three plates because well, my collection of unused plates has been growing far too much and I wanted to make sure that I would actually get around to using the ones I purchased. I selected three plates : Stamping Plate No. 5 - Vintage, Stamping Plate No. 12 - Faces, and Stamping Plate No. 14 - Moments. I used an image from each plate for this design. I also used an image from the MoYou London Pride & Prejudice plate from their Literature collection because you know, obvi.
Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Zoya Nana, Genevieve, Willa and Spencer
Konad Special Black
Sally Hansen Rapid Red
KBShimmer Clearly on Top
MoYou London Literature Plate 10 & Pro Plate 07
Moyra Plates 5, 12 & 14
Bundle Monster Plate 603
As you can see from the list I used a lot of plates for this design. It sounds like way more work than it actually was. I started with one coat of Snow Me White and once dry I sponge on my Zoya colors to create a "zombie skin" effect. I then stamped on my images from the Moyra, Bundle Monster and Moyou Plates using Konad Black and Rapid Red and finished with top coat. Easy peasy!
I love how these turned out! They're quirky and funny which is what I was going for. My favorite finger is definitely the Victorian woman mainly because she fits so nicely on my nail and I was worried that she'd be too big. Three cheers for happy surprises!
What do you all think? Do you have a favorite nail? Also, will you be going to see the movie Pride & Prejudice & Zombies? Let me know in the comments!
