Hiya guys. The week is almost over and who else is looking forward to the weekend? With the weather finally giving us some sunshine, I am ready for a nice day out on the boardwalk. So for today, I have a few manicures using a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. I have been looking forward to doing a review on stamping plates for a long time. But if I was going to do it, then I wanted to do it right and create a bunch of manis. So let's break it down and see what I have come up with.
The stamping plate shown here is from Born Pretty Store number QA97 and you can purchase it for $2.99.
The plate has a lot of flowers, but it does include a few off-themed images as well. On a first glance, I didn't even notice the other images, because I have an affinity for floral stamping. The plate has four full coverage images and almost ten single ones as well.
These were the first thing that caught my eye, these flowers are very appropriate for the Spring. I can see this looking really pretty in a array of different colors. Polishes used: Rica Oh, Crab, OPI Infinite Shine Unequivocally Crimson, and OPI My Vampire is Buff
I have to admit that I didn't realize what this image was until I was editing photos. In case you cannot tell, it's supposed to be cherries. Initially, I thought maybe they were tree twigs or a random pattern. I just couldn't see the 'cherries', but now while I can see what it's intended to be I don't think they are as obvious as they probably could of been. Polishes used: Konad White. Gradient base using Virtuous Polish Rahab, Magdalene, and Deborah.
These roses are the definition of gorgeous! I kept re-thinking how I wanted to stamp them because I wanted to capture them well. Definitely my favorite image from the entire plate. Polishes used: Enchanted Polish January 2014 (base color) and Virtuous Polish Ruth and Raheb.
I'm really satisfied and happy with every single image on this plate. Each one is perfectly engraved and picks up flawlessly to stamp. As I mentioned before, I love the variety and the usage for each one. Another thing that's nice to note about this plate is the sizing of the images. A lot of times the sizing will either be too small or too large, but here I find it's all very nicely balanced. Born Pretty Store has been coming out with some amazing plates and I am completely obsessed. Plate #QA97 is reasonably priced as well and only retails for only $2.99.
