Peach and White Flowers with Chanel June and Born Pretty Store BP-L015
For this peach and white flowers manicure, I used Chanel June as the base and then stamped the white flowers using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L015.
I have wanted Chanel June for ages, and I recently found it for sale in the The London Perfume Company for just £14.99. It was a limited edition that I haven’t been able to find in any shops, and that’s less than the normal retail price, so I was a little suspicious that it might be a fake. But it seems legitimate. All the markings and bottle details are the same as for my other Chanel polishes.
I used three coats of Chanel June. It doesn’t play as nicely as many Chanel polishes do, going on quite streaky on the first coat, and needing three coats for good coverage. But it still has that wonderful Chanel self-levelling, and it’s such a pretty shade that I can forgive it the extra coat. The colour is not far off Barry M Full Throttle, which I hated the formula of, so I’ll just have to use Chanel June when I want a fix of soft apricot joy.
I’ve stamped some pretty flowers in white, using Born Pretty Store plate BP-L015. This is one of the newer rectangular plates that Born Pretty Store has released, similar in size to the MoYou London plates and the Bundle Monster new rectangular plates.
The plate is backed with white plastic and has mainly floral or leafy designs, with a few random ones thrown in; there’s a Valentine’s Day and a Mother’s day image, plus some Christmas trees! Quite a few of the flower patterns would be great for leadlighting/reverse stamping and I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of it.
This plate costs $5.99, and you can get 10% off it, and off other non-sale items, from www.bornprettystore.com with the code ZSL91.
