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?
