Happily Never After: Dead of Night (BM-XL195) - Single Plate
WHAT IS NAIL STAMPING?
Our Dead of Night (BM-XL195) nail stamping plate is inspired by the midnight spell undone in the classic storybook fairy tale, Cinderella. A dream quickly turns into a nightmare once the clock strikes 12. Tell a fantasy disillusioned with thorny vines, brittle skeletons, revolting rats, and the scraggly spines of the chilling woods. This XL (4.25in x 2.4in) plate offers an array of accent, full nail, and buffet-style designs for you to rewrite the ending as you please. As with all our nail stamping plates, we use laser-engraved stainless steel, so you'll receive the highest quality and most intricate results.

Love the thorn motif!
This is such a fun, edgy take on fairy tale imagery. I love the thorns and how all of the designs complement each other.

Spooky Autumn Vibes
I love how there are so many different elements to pull from this stamping plate! I used just the branches and crows to create an eerie autumnal look that doesn’t scream HALLOWEEN. But then I added a gorey eye from the Sandy Claws plate. I would recommend using Maniology stamping polishes on the finer details like the crows and branches. I tried Twinkled T black stamping polish and as evidenced by my branches, the pick-up was not as good. I switched to Maniology polish for the crows. I love this plate so much I went back and ordered the entire Happily Never After set! I’m just a novice, this is only my 3rd maniology manicure and I can say this plate was a bit more of a challenge to use but if you stick with it, you’ll get the hang of it within a few tries!
Spooky Fairytale Vibes
I love the various themes I can pull from these plates. Just using the branches and crows alone, you can create an eerie autumnal vibe that doesn’t necessarily scream HALLOWEEN. Though I added an eyeball from another stamping plate for extra gore. I will say I learned my lesson and the delicate branches and smaller crows really need the maniology stamping polish. I tried Twinkled T black polish initially and the pick up (as evidenced in the branch photo) was not as clean as it could’ve been. After getting this plate, I went back and bought the whole fairytale set. Can’t wait to try them!
Dark and twisted
I absolutely love this plate. The images stamp really well and the only way I could love Disney princesses more than I do is by adding a dark twist to them. This plate is perfect!
