Héhé Stamping Plates 076 & 081 Review

20 comments

Hiya guys! It's stamping mania in the Rose mani cave lately and I am loving it. Recently I received a few stamping plates from Aiyoohehe, also known as 'Héhé' for short, for reviewing purposes and even used one in an episode of Puppy Prints. Today I'll be sharing a look at some of the other plates and show you guys the manis I've created. Since I received so many plates I decided to split up the review, so you'll be seeing two plates per post for the next couple of weeks. I am a huge fan of stamping so I wanted to make sure I got to show a few patterns per plate. Now let's jump right in and get started!


The two plates in this review are from the Plaids & Florals Collection from Aiyoohehe. There are a total of 12 plates in this collection and each one retails for $2.00. The entire collection can be purchased for a discounted price of $23.00.


Before we get started with the manis I wanted to take the time to address a serious issue concerning Héhé plates. All the stamping plates in this review come from Aiyoohehe, the original creator, and are completely authentic. There have been a lot of fakes and you may own some without even realizing it. Personally I had no idea about the circulation of fakes until recently. You can read more about how to spot a fake Héhé plate here. Note: one of the easiest ways to tell is genuine plates will have a back label with their logo. As always, please make sure your hard-earned money is going towards the real creator who have put their heart and soul into their work.


For my first design I used plate 081 and the pattern resembles a water spotting technique. This is a technique I have never tried and the second I saw a pattern for it I fell in love. Now the pattern itself is a little narrow on the plate. I don't consider myself to have a big width and the pattern covered a little more than half my nail each time. Because of the pattern concept it's very easy to overlap and get the look of a full design.

Polishes: Essie - Garden Variety, Flowerista, and Chillato.



The pattern used for this next mani is from plate 076 and it's... I'm not sure. Initially I thought this pattern was wood cravings, but in retrospect it looks more like zebra prints. Haha opps. I doubled-stamped the same image on each nail to create a more wooden illusion, don't think I succeeded too well though. For my accent nail I decided to color in the flower image in the middle of the plate for a decal technique. The flower image in the middle of each plate is definitely large enough to color in and do placement easily.

Polishes: Zoya - Taylor and Desiree. Rica Polish - Whiteout.



More double-stamping shown here with another image from plate 076.  Originally I wasn't too sure on how to feel about the pattern, but after seeing it on my nail it really grew on me. I think these would be great for some stone marble nails if you use different colors. One thing I would like to note about picking up the image is that you need to have a good stamping polish. If you use a creme that's not meant for stamping the thin lines will be harder to transfer.

Polishes: OPI I Just Can't Cope-Acabana. Rica Polish Mother Earth and Nail Hoot Black.



And the last mani I have to share with you today is definitely my favorite from the three. It's a leopard print from plate 076 (such diversity in this one plate!). Leopard print is one of my favorite kind of patterns so to see it on a plate was so exciting. Yes, it's an easy freehanded design. However freehand isn't for everyone and it's great to have an alternative way to achieve a classic look. Pattern picked up perfectly, but it did not have enough coverage for my entire nail in one stamp. Again similar with the water spotting design, you can easily add-on to whichever area you missed on the first go without a lot of fuss. Also I did manage to smear it a tiny bit thanks to topcoat so you can ignore that haha.

Polishes: Pipedream Polish 100 degrees, Zoya Cala, and Nail Hoot Black.


Overall I am really impressed with the quality of the authentic Aiyoohehe plates. I have used fakes in the past not knowing and never quite liked the quality, now that all makes sense. I had no problems picking up the images with these plates, even the tinier thin ones from plate 076. One thing I do wish is that some of the patterns were positioned differently so you could get a full imprint on the first go. Regardless of that this experience definitely makes me want to try out more from their massive selection of stamping plates available. Have you guys tried out Héhé stamping plates before? Do you know if they were the real or fake ones?

As I mentioned before, two plates in this review are from the Plaids & Florals Collection from Aiyoohehe. There are a total of 12 plates in this collection and each one retails for $2.00. The entire collection can be purchased for a discounted price of $23.00.

  1. I absolutely LOVE how you did all of these stamping designs. It really shows the versatility of the plates. Even though I thought zebra-ish prints in the second one like you, I think they all pass for wood! Great post, I'm going to have to pick some of these plates up!

  9. I'm so jealous of your gradient skills, mine are rusty. I love the water spot mani. Looking at her site it seems I may have ordered a fake from eBay the other night :( I'm gonna have to get the real thing now.

  11. Each design is just stunning! I was sent some plates to review by a website and I believed them to be fake so declined the review. It's such a shame when people do that!
