Nail Polish Blogger Challenge - Day 2

Hello and welcome to Day 2 of the Nail Polish Bloggers Challenge!

Today begins the real challenge - creating six different manicures using the same polish.

For my first attempt I decided to use a new plate I got which I have been wanting for a long time!

This is an Essence Stampy Plate. I mentioned back in September that I had been trying to get my hands on this plate without success! Not long after, it was reader to the rescue!
A lovely girl named Steffi emailed me telling me she had bought the plate for me. How sweet is that?!
Thank you so much, Steffi! I appreciate your generosity very much! Seriously, you're great.
(Especially when I get to have checkered nails now!!!)

Ah! Pink checkered nails! My dream!

I've done this before using a Sharpie and sometimes tape but it is just too time consuming and not perfect enough for my liking.
But this plate... Perfection!
(Okay maybe I could have been a bit neater but this was my first time using the plate.)

Full of awesome. I have such a "thing" for checkered stuff.

Checkered shoes... (5 pairs...)

Checkered walls...

As you know, my base color is Color Club Peppermint Twist.
I stamped from the Essence plate using Wet N Wild Black Creme.

I hope you guys enjoyed these nails!
Do any of you have a thing for checkered stuff like I do?

And again, check out the other bloggers involved for more great pink posts!
