I started with a base of Leighton Denny Brick Road, and then added blue stripes with Esmaltes da Kelly Wendy and Moyou London Pro XL 01.
Then I added more stripes with Colour Alike Red Wine & Lilac Sweater and Lealac LLC-A. The image on LLC-A is quite large so it was possible to paint the actual stripes in alternating colours on the plate - a bit tricky but worth it I think. The resulting stripes were not that tidy, a bit wonky in places but overall I thought they were OK..
Then I added the knitted look with A England Lancelot and Messy Mansion MM40. I do like this plate!!
Finally I added a matte top coat. I still can't decide whether I prefer this mani matte or glossy but I was pretty pleased with it anyway.
