I have been watching Bing Bing Fan's new TV series the Empress of China. I am actually not a fan of her, so I don't know how I started watching the series...anyways the costume in the drama is stunning and sexy. I wonder if people back in the days are sexy like the actresses in the drama with half their boobs revealing. The costumes have really pretty print and color combination. Some of them look a lot like Japanese kimono I think.
One of the many costumes with really pretty color combo is this one and it inspire me to create a manicure with similar colors.
Doesn't it reminds you of the Japanese kimono?
Polishes I used from left to right:

MAC Frost Soiree
Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
I love the packaging of this plate. This is image plate Y006
There is a blue plastic protective film.
Peel off the plastic to start using it.
They stamps very well for the print with thicker lines. The ones with thin lines are so-so.
