I was contacted by the Born Pretty Store to review some Nail Art products. I have heard great things about the Born Pretty Store for years, but have never ordered anything myself, so I was happy to give some items a try. I usually focus more on makeup than nails, so you’ll have to excuse the fact that I’m not quite at the same level as those gorgeous perfect-looking manicures that you see on nail art blogs. I did my best, and I am really pleased with how things came out. I was sent the following three items from the Born Pretty Store.
Today I am going to focus on the Disney themed stamping plate. Technically the name Disney is not used, nor are the names Mickey or Minnie. The official name of this plate is the Nail Art Stamp Template Cute Mouse Bowknot Dot Design RuiZ03 available here. But, the reason I chose this cute mouse plate is because it reminds me of a certain pair of Mice we all know and love. I have been completely obsessed with Disney since my trip to Walt Disney World last fall, so I couldn’t wait to try out this plate.
The Nail Art Stamp Template Cute Mouse Bowknot Dot Design RuiZ03 came loosely placed in the packing bubble envelope that held all three items from Born Pretty. It was not in a bag or box, but it did have the standard blue plastic protective coating that most stamping plates have. I was worried about possible scratches, but it stamped fine and there were no scratches in the patterns at all.
If you are not familiar with nail stamping, here is a quick rundown of how it works. Apply polish to the design of your choice. Use a scraper or old gift card to remove excess polish from the plate. Press the stamper (not included) onto the selected image to pick up the pattern. Working quickly, transfer the design onto your fingernail by gently pressing the stamp onto one side of your nail and using a single rolling motion to apply the design.
I thought the stamping plate was very easy to use. Though I have used nail stamping plates before this, I do not take the time to stamp my nails often, so I am definitely a novice. That being said, I only had to redo a nail one time, and it was my own fault for taking too long, futzing with placement. The stamps themselves applied almost perfectly with clear images and no trouble. The winky face design isn’t perfect, but that is mainly because it is a little too big for my nail and I couldn’t fit the whole design in the space that I had. Otherwise, the designs look great. I used Sinful Colors polish for the white and black stamped images.
I can definitely see myself getting some great use out of this plate, especially when we move back to California and are going to Disneyland all the time. I have no complaints, other than I wish that it had been packaged a little more securely in transit. I didn’t have any problems, but there is definitely the potential of plates scratching.
