Ball nails

A while ago I had my Uni ball and so of course I had to match my nails to my outfit.  I was in love with my jewellery; especially my bracelet so I wanted something on my nails to compliment it without over powering it and this was the result.

Max Factor Golden Peach (light gold) and Rimmel Lasting Finish Cranberry Zest (pink) 

How to do this mani:
  1. After base coat, paint a light gold base colour over your nails.
  2. Use the stamping plate m71 (note that mine is not an official konad plate) and use the pattern with a checked style.
  3. Prepare stamp like normal, however before applying to the nail remove the denser patterned part of the stamp. Apply what remains over the nail.
  4. Finish off with a top coat and you're done.
So how important are nails to you for finishing off a look?
