|Comparison of Pet'la Golden Russian and BCN-006|
|BCN-006 on the left, Pet'la Golden Russian on the right|
The differences come from materials used - Petra's Pet'la Plates are carved on a brass metal that is twice the thickness of the silver metal used by BCN. The etching on the Pet'la Plate is very deep which gives you a clear, crisp image on your stamper and nail, while the BCN plate barely feels engraved upon touching it and gives spotty, uneven images on your stamper and nail. Let me show you some images to show the differences.

My experience with the Pet'la Plate was amazing - every image picked up beautifully and crisply on the stamper which led to a pleasant nail stamping experience while the BCN-006 plate was patchy and didn't transfer even half of the image to my nail on most of the plate. What's more is that BCN copied these images without Petra's knowledge and stole her proprietary property. The imposter plate was being sold on bornprettystore.com, but they have since removed the listing for the plate upon finding out that those images were stolen from Pet'la Plate. BCN is currently stocked on aliexpress and alibaba - I would STRONGLY recommend to anyone shopping those sites to carefully research what you are buying. What you might be saving in dollars on the plate itself, you are losing in quality. These people producing copied plates should not be supported and its unfortunate that they don't care to steal from others as long as they make a few bucks.
