Floral Stamping with Supernatural Lacquer, Powder Perfect Stamping Polishes, and Born Pretty Store BPL-029

I've wanted to try more nail art this year, and stamping has definitely been on my to-do list. I hoard stamping plates and polish, but rarely give them the workout they deserve. Recently, when I photographed Supernatural Lacquer Moon of My Life, I thought it would make a lovely base for some floral stamping. I chose the Born Pretty Store BPL-029 plate and Powder Perfect stamping polishes to get my art on. Let's have a look!
