Asian inspired fauxnad

Hi Kids!
I Love Asian inspired nail art. It's a theme that's super easy to pull together, especially if you have Asian lettering (or is it wording?). Anyway...
Several months ago, I picked up a very cool fauxnad plate, from Chez-delaney.  P49 and has a series of 12 Asian lettering(?), wording(?), sayings(?) around the perimeter of the plate in addition to 12 astrological signs in the center of the plate.
I figured it was high time to use it, especially since I have even more Asian design options with the Essence plates Tiana sent me.

The color choice for my base is an odd one, where Asian is concerned. It's the new Confetti polish My Favorite Martian. I wore this light pine, glass fleck as a NOTD before I went nutz with layering and stamping. Actually, that is the condensed version. Because I'm super busy at the restaurant, I do my manis with nail art in stages. Day 1-NOTD,  Day 2-Layering, Day 3-Stamping, Day 4-So "over" the mani and color, I can't wait to take it all off! ~Sigh~ I cannot wait until we're a bit slower so I can at least have some time to reply to your comments.
 Anyway, here are the (clickable) pictures. Deets after...





















































































Day1- NOTD, 3 coats My Favorite Martian.
Day2- layering with; CND, Sapphire Sparkle, Jade Sparkle, Crimson Sparkle, Raspberry Sparkle, Hard Candy Sweet P, & Sinful Colors Green Ocean in arcs, thick lines and circles, all outlined with a glitter liner from US Maxim.
Day3- stamping with fauxnad plates; H23, H28, H30 & P49, Konad M66 and an unmarked, rectangular Essence plate. Stamped with Konad Special polish Wine Red, and a black Color Club mini. Accents done with a dotting tool and China Glaze Ruby Pumps. 2 coats Seche.

This is exquisite. You are so talented!  :)
If I may ask, which plate were the lanterns on? Was it the Ches D plate? I would love to have that (and the crane) to play with.
