Teal Tartan…

So I went with some stamped nail art today as I didn’t have much time for anything else. (I was  spending most of my time today printing my new bag design which I’ll reveal next week!) The tartan/plaid image is from a BornPrettyStore stamping plate, unfortunately they no longer seem to sell it, and I paired it with a Models Own polish named ‘Teal’.

Deep Sea Tartan…

So is there a difference between ‘tartan’ and ‘plaid’? I wasn’t quite sure what title these nails should come under so I went with Tartan, because well I’m Scottish and it seemed more natural. Anyway, this style of nail art seems to be a trend right now so I thought I’d hop on and join in. I’m using ‘Deep Sea’ from Models Own Hyper-Gel ‘Twilight’ collection, which I won after being selected as a runner up. The hyper-gels are lovely – so thick and glossy and they have great coverage.

So who’s yet to try out this style? And more importantly is it ‘plaid’ or ‘tartan’? Help me.

I normally use my thumb as my ‘practice’ nail which is why it’s never included in shots as it usually ends up in a bit of a mess. However, annoyingly this time I felt that my thumb actually turned out the best….
