New Image Plates!

I'm always on the lookout for new stamping plates and was super excited to get these new XL stamping plates...these plates are fantastic in my humble opinion.... especially the ones that are full nail designs...so I was fooling around with them tonight and here's what I came up with....



This is a couple pix of my left hand... sorry about poor cleanup and scraggly cuticles...I love that you can see the holo in these pix!




This isn't focused the best but I love the holo's!



These XL image plates are available thru Chez Delaney and Magnonails. (Edit: Apparently US and Canadian orders can't be processed thru Magnonails' website; here's email to place order if interested: info@magnonails.de)

Base is China Glaze OMG and 2Nite...stamped with Konad black special polish. I have a couple pix of just plain holo ...I'll edit post and insert in the morning...camera battery died and couldn't upload them!
Edit: Heres a pix of just OMG and 2Nite plus the sun came out so I took a couple more pix...I love holos!





And it looks like its down to the last week for entering my first giveaway for six polishes of your choice of the China Glaze Anchors Away collex and IP H12...if you haven't already, please enter here!

Edit: Here's size comparisons to Konad image plates:




With ruler...the XL plates appear to be about ? larger...the first image is XL, the second is Konad...
The XL plate is 3/4" right down to the top but if you weren't using it for french tips but rather full nail, its slightly less.

Konad is slightly more than 1/2".

And here is the width...first image is XL, the second in Konad...
XL plate is slightly over 1/2" wide....


Konad is slightly under 1/2". Hopefully this helps anyone who may be wondering if you have long or wide nails!

Thanks for looking!

  5. Would you be able to compare the size of a design against a full nail image on a konad plate? Are they much bigger? I find myself not using full nail images because I have such a hard time filling in the empty spaces and these look like they would work better for me. Thanks for the info on where to get these too!
