I recently received a few new items from Born Pretty Store to review. I’ve always wanted to do plaid nails so I was eager to try out this plate. So let’s take a look and see what I thought.
This is a full image stamping plate divided into 4 sections and a smaller image in the middle. I started by doing some test stamping on each section. I did my testing using Mundo de Unas Black Stamping polish and 2 different stamping heads; a white CS stamper and a FUN clear jelly stamper. These are the 2 stamping heads I use most often and have the best pick up with. I also tried multiple scrapers with varying thickness.
I had the best results with the CS stamper and an ultra thin scraper; but I use the term ‘best’ lightly because.. well, this.
The image on the lower left picked up better on all tries, so I decided to use it for my manicure.
I must say I do love this mani regardless. But I think thats more from the color combination than the stamping though. As you can see the stamping is clearly not great. Some nails are okay from a distance, but others don’t even look good then.
Unfortunately the etching on this plate just isn’t where it needs to be. With only one image being what I would consider usable, and not even very good at that, I would not recommend this plate.
I did get one other plate from this brand so hopefully it is better. We’ll all know soon enough!
Until next time, stay polished!
