Born Pretty Store Dragonfly/Butterfly Stamping Plate Review!

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have another review for Born Pretty Store, this time for another stamping plate. This is my final item to review this go around! This plate is one of many small round stamping plates available from Born Pretty Store and I really enjoyed using this one! Keep reading after the break to see what I did with it!

So, first thoughts, I loved the look of this plate! It has some really cute butterfly images which take up most of the plate, but then they also included some little dragonflies! My first instinct was to use the butterflies and maybe do some leadlighting but I decided to step out of my comfort zone and use the dragonflies. I decided I was going to do some negative space along with it to give it a little more uniqueness. So I started with a base of Rhubidium Rhod by Indigo Bananas in a half moon mani. Once it was dry, I used Hottie by M Polish to stamp the dragonflies. I cleaned up the negative space area with my clean up brush so that there wasn't any stray dragonflies there. Hehe.  I top coated everything with Seche Vite at first but it was so glossy, it was hard to see the stamping so I added a matte top coat and I loved it! 

Final thoughts on this plate - I really liked the variety of butterflies which would be good for a number of stamping techniques but I also liked that they included the dragonflies for a little something extra. The image picked up easily for me on the first or second try which is pretty standard for me. The images transferred to my nails completely as well.
