Today I have a really beautiful Dancing Peacock themed stamping plate to review. I received this plate from the Born Pretty Store, and you can see the other BPS reviews I have done by clicking on the Born Pretty Store link in the “Categories” section on the right hand side of the blog. I love peacocks. I think that they are beautiful, and the designs on this plate are really lovely. There are more than just peacock designs, though, making the plate both interesting and versatile. Take a look.
Isn’t that gorgeous? In addition to the four peacock images, thre is also an owl, a very cool flame image, a dancer, and a fleur de lis. Now let’s talk about that gigantic peacock image in the center. You can use the tail section for an interesting textured image that has nothing to do with peacocks. The scrolls and tail feathers combine for a damask-like design that can be used in many ways. For the look I have today, I chose to stamp the large peacock on the left with the long, loopy tail feathers. I laid down e.l.f. Pot of Gold for my base color, but then chose to add a little something with some transparent teal. I stamped the center image with Sinful Colors Gorgeous to add some subtle texture. It’s hard to see it in the photo, but in real life it was a bit more noticeable. I used Born Pretty’s Black Stamping Polish for the image and stamped it across all four fingers. Here is the result.
I think that it came out as a fun and unique manicure. The peacock stamped beautifully, and evenly. I had no issues with the image skipping or smudging. The Dancing Peacock plate may look a little intimidating at first, but the images are actually very easy to work with. I went ahead and stamped most of the remaining images so that you could see how they stamp as well. The only images that I didn’t get at least part of were the fleur de lis and the funky pop art peacock. Again, this was Born Pretty’s Black Stamping Polish, this time over Ulta Goddess.
All of the images stamped really well except for that owl. I had such a hard time getting it to stamp cleanly. I think the etching might be a little too fine or something, but the owl gave me fits. It took several tries before I finally gave up and said “good enough”. Otherwise, the images were clean and crisp. The plate is evenly etched and of good quality. I really like the Dancing Peacock plate, and I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it. The Dancing Peacock Themed Stamping Plate retails for $2.99 on the BPS website.
As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, the Born Pretty Store is located in China, so shipping will take a while. It is normal for orders to take 2-4 weeks to ship to the US, and in my experience, I have gotten most of my orders within 2-3weeks. You should still plan ahead if you are ordering something time sensitive like holiday items and order them early. Orders ship within 24 hours.
