Product provided for honest review.
I have a third (Born Pretty Store) product for review! As you all know, I have a certain fondness for stamping! I love the crisp images and patterns I can never freehand. Just like anyone, I order my stamping plates from my favorite companies but recently, I am trying new ones.
I hear mixed reviews about the Born Pretty Store stamping plates; everything from the good to the images are not etched properly making it nearly impossible to transfer the image to the stamper. BPS released all new stamping plates and I wanted to try one out!
Ugh! I am so sorry my photo is not the best. I could not photograph the images properly! Unfortunately, this plate is no longer available on the website and I could not find another that was similar. However, if you are interested in checking out the other plates take a look (here).
I really like the abstract images on this plate. I do not have designs like these on any other. That is my biggest pet peeve about stamping plates. The images sometime become repetitive. From what I can tell of the website, the stamping plates are different. They each have a theme and the images are similar but not enough I feel like I am paying for the same image five or six times.
Below are a few manicures I made with the images.
I think this stamping plate is great. I had little to no trouble applying and scraping polish. The image transferred nicely to the stamper. Occasionally, when the images are not etched properly I experience smearing while transferring the images. Not with this plate! I used different polishes to stamp: Konad Specials, old Milani lacquers and Mundo de Unas stamping polishes. I had the same good experiences with each.
I recommend this product. I hear better things about the newly released plates so hopefully the quality stretches across the board and at $2.99 with free worldwide shipping it certainly does not hurt to try one out, right?
If stamping does not interest you BPS has a great selection of other (nail art) supplies so there is bound to be something for everyone. I also have reviews for the foils (linked here) and of the tiger water decals which includes my thoughts on shipping (linked here).
