I have always loved plaid nails, and believe it or not this is only the second plaid mani I’ve done. And actually the first I’ve been happy with. I have always found that the quality of plate you are working with directly affects how well your nails turn out, but I believe that is even more so with plaid nails. This plate was so easy to work with and I would definitely recommend it if you love plaid nails.
For this mani I started with a classic red for the base color. Zoya Gia was just the red I was looking for and it covered fully in 2 smooth coats. I chose the image on the left for my stamping. The first layer was done with MdU White. Then with Painted Polish Midnight Mischief I followed up with the black layer, lining it up with the first layer of stamping.
While I didn’t get my stamping lined up exactly I’m still quite pleased with the overall look. I topped it all off with matte top coat to finish this mani. I actually didn’t even take pics with a glossy top coat because I was certain I liked it best matte.
