Double and triple stamping, oh my! Born Pretty Store stamping plate review!

Hey y'all! 


Tonight on the blog I have a review on the plates I used for this mani. I'm really excited with how this one turned out and even more so because I incorporated techniques that I had never tried before. 

So to start off with, this is a shot of what I used, polish wise: 


And this is what the train wreck of a mani station (my dining room table) looked like:


I was so completely floored by how spread out I've gotten with nail art that I had to stop and take a picture. 

Here is a shot of the Born Pretty Store stamping plate I used: 


So let me start with the review. I am IN LOVE with BPS's stamping plates. They are etched so nicely and the image comes out crisp and clean on the first try. For the purposes of this review, I stamped everything in black so it would show well on my Winstonia XL stamper. 



I mean just look at the detail on those images! I am tickled with how nice they came out and this is just a messy, throw away pick up to show them to you all. I didn't have to use stamping polish either, these plates are incredible for the price! I think I paid somewhere around $2 for this plate. 

And just in case you weren't sure that I love them, I took a some macros. 



This nail is actually triple stamped. I did the chevron, a vine, and the birdcage. All images were from the same plate - QA91 by BPS. 

Here's a macro of the stamp by itself:


Just lovely! I can't wait to get my hands on more of their plates. Have you used plates by Born Pretty Store? What did you think of them? 


***this review is not sponsored in any way by Born Pretty Store. I purchased this plate with my own money. Born Pretty Store doesn't even know who I am. Haha!***

  4. Great stamps, I recently reviewed a stamping plate from BPS but it was a brand called Qgirl and it was very hard to stamp with. But I think BPS own plates are different. I have a new BPS plate that I will try today, I hope it turns out as good as this.
