Two New It Girl Nail Art plates for April!

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)


Ack! April's almost here! How did that happen?!?! I'm not ready for it. Not ready for Easter, not ready for April, not ready for summer bearing down upon us. Help!!

On the positive side, It Girl Nail Art has two stellar new mini plates coming out in April--and yes, that pun was intended, because they're both celestial themed plates, heheheheeee. And if you've followed my blog for any length of time, you know I love galaxy nails of any sort, so I'm excited to show you these.

Let's take a look at them:

It Girl Nail Art mini plates IG309 & LE102

These are mini plates, and there's a variety of image sizes on them, so here are shots with a ruler so you can judge what will work for you:

Let's jump into the manis! For my first mani, I was drawn to the constellation image on IG309. I started with a base of Julep Ledi, a black shimmer polish. Then I stamped with Moyra silver foil stamping polish, and applied Moyra's silver foil. Here's how it came out:

I love the mirror finish that the foil gave to the constellations, it totally made the design pop! So, I wondered, what will that foil look like if I matte it (I used Sally Hansen Big Matte topcoat)? Here's how it came out:

I was pretty impressed. The shiny of the foil wasn't quite as shiny as before, but it was still shinier than just regular silver stamping.

For my next mani, I stamped images from both plates over Shinespark Polish Luminous Stone (one coat over black undies, because I just wanted a scattering of the glitter). I stamped with Messy Mansion Blue You Away and Sterling, and decorated my earth with Spring Green:

I am so, so happy with how this turned out! I love the look of the earth in the background, and the space guy is just plain fun. I'm still wearing this because I can't bear to take it off.

For my final mani, I wanted to do an astrological sign mani. I'm technically a Virgo, but my birthday is right on the cusp, and if you go buy the descriptions of each sign, I definitely have elements of each in my personality, and I suspect most people would assume I'm a fire sign (no, I don't really believe in any of this, but I've heard it a lot in my life!). So, I decided to dedicate my mani to Leo.

I stared with a base of The Lady Varnishes Harpy, because, gorgeous. Then I stamped my images with Messy Mansion Soft Gold, Holly, Sterling, and Hit The Bottle Polish Drop Red Gorgeous. Here's how it came out:

This feels warm and fiery to me, and the holo in the base polish definitely makes it celestial! It's much more 'me' than a blue Virgo mani would be, although I'm sure I'll do one of those come time for my birthday, too. Maybe Leo on my right hand and Virgo on my left?

It Girl Nail Art plate LE102 is a limited edition plate that will be available April 6- April 9th only from the Polish Pickup website  for $5.00 USD (for sneak peeks and info about upcoming PPU products, check out their Facebook Group). And beware--the plate is capped at 90 only, so if you want it, line up early!

It Girl Nail Art plate IG309 is NOT limited edition, and will be on sale in It Girl Nail Art's shop starting April 10th (after the PPU sale ends). It will be $4.50 USD.

Now here's the super cool part. If you buy LE102 during the Polish Pick Up sale (the only time you can buy it), you'll get a coupon to receive IG309 FREE when you spend $40 in the It Girl Nail Art store. So if you've been wanting to try out It Girl Nail Art plates, this is a great chance!
