Geek Chic Stamping Plate

Today I have this Geek Chic Stamping Plate from the Born Pretty Store for review.  I am really liking these long rectangle style stamping plates.  They are such a bargain and hold so many stamps.  There are 14 large size, full nail designs on this plate.  They are all very different from each other and this is a really versatile plate for a wide variety of manicures.  You can go sci-fi futuristic, throw it back to the 80’s, or anything in between.  Let’s take a closer look.

Though Born Pretty advertises this plate as “Geek patterns,” that doesn’t tell the whole story.  You will find gears, circuit boards, and video game controllers in the patterns on this plate, which certainly qualify you for the nerd herd, but that’s not all.  You can create an adorable summer mani with the umbrellas and sunglasses.  Sneakers and pencils are great for the school year.  The planes, cars or directional arrows might be fun on vacation, and the goofy faces are good all year round.  There are a lot of option with this plate, and it’s a good addition to my nail art collection.

I went with bright summer colors and some of the fun summery designs.  I wanted to show off as many stamps as I could, so I chose a different design for each nail.  Some of them are more tricky than others to stamp cleanly.  I had some trouble with the sunglasses design, but overall, it’s a good quality plate. The plate is currently on sale of $2.99.

Today I am reviewing a wonderful stamping plate from the Born Pretty Store, and it is one that you are going to want to check out.  It’s no secret that I love nautical things, and I am so in love with this Sailors & Sea Sailing stamping plate from Born Pretty.  The designs are adorable and they look so sleek.  I have several reviews for products that I have received 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.  But first, let’s look at the stamping plate.

If you like nautical nails like I do, you definitely need this plate.  The designs are classic and lovely.  The designs pick up really easily.  I also like that you can use the starfish and shell designs to do a beachy theme instead of a nautical theme if you want to shake it up a bit.  The designs are on the larger side, so you may have some trouble if you have very short nails or very small nail beds, but otherwise I have no complaints.  The images stamp cleanly and evenly.  It’s a must-have if you are into this style.

For my nautical nails look, I used e.l.f. Skinny Jeans for my base color.  Let me give e.l.f. a shout out because this polish did not chip for 5 days.  Great job e.l.f.!  I stamped with Sinful Colors Snow Me White.  I am so happy with the way my nails looked this week.  They made me so happy and I got several compliments.  I love the way the mani came out, and I will definitely be using this plate again.

I really have nothing but love for the Sailors & Sea Sailing Theme Nail Art Stamp plate.  It is currently available from Born Pretty for $1.59.  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 definitely plan ahead if you are ordering something time sensitive like holiday items and order them early.  Orders ship within 24 hours.  Check out the BPS website bornprettstore.com, or their facebook page for more details.  For 10% off any regular priced items from the website, use coupon code BBBK31.

Cat Nails and an Animal Theme Stamping Template

Today I am reviewing a large stamping plate from the Born Pretty Store, and if you are an animal lover, it is one that you are going to want to check out.  There are so many cute designs on this plate from bunnies to birds, cats to bats.  This would also be a great holiday plate for Easter or Halloween.  It’s an amazingly versatile plate.  This is the first long rectangle style stamping plate that I’ve ever used, and I think that they are a really good deal with the large number of designs that fit on the plate.  They don’t cost too much more than the regular size, but they hold 2-3 times the number of images.  I have to say that I kind of love this stamping plate.  The designs are adorable and you can get so many looks out of it.

The Animal Theme Nail Art Stamp Template from Born Pretty holds 25 images.  There are seven full nail designs, and the rest are single images.  There is no limit to the variety of manicures that you can get out of this plate.  Since I couldn’t possibly stamp all 25 images on my nails, I stamped them out on some paper so that you can see all of the images on this plate.  There are a couple rather finicky stamps, but most of them stamp easily and cleanly.  The thinly drawn cat with the big eyes and the birds on the swing gave me some difficulties, but you can still work with them.  In general, though, the images are evenly etched and this is a great plate.  Some of my favorite designs are the pandas, seahorses, paws and bones, and of course all of the cats.  Anyone who knows me can tell you that cats will get me every time.  I had to play with the kitty stamps first.  For my cat nails I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White for my base shade, and the Born Pretty Black Stamping Polish to stamp the designs.  I love them.  They are hilarious.

Born Pretty calls this one the Cute Windmills Nail Art Stamping Plate.  I used the peacock feather design when I reviewed the gold stamping polish last week, so you can click the link to see that one.  This plate is so varied that I wasn’t sure how to show you all the designs in one look.  Ultimately, I decided to just do each nail with a different design so you could see as many stamps as possible.  I had a little trouble with a couple of the designs, but I used Sinful Colors Black on Black instead of a proper stamping polish.  I am getting toward the end of the bottle and that may be the issue.  I am satisfied with how the designs came out, but a true stamping polish would create much cleaner lines.  I really love the pinwheel and heart designs on this plate.  I was also really impressed with how crisp and clean the tribal strip pattern stamped.  I really like this plate and I am glad to have it in my collection.  I can see myself using it a lot.

Today I have a really beautiful stamping plate from Born Pretty to review.  I received this plate for review 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.  This plate is interesting and versatile with the variety of designs that it contains.  Take a look.

Flowers, Waves, and Stars Stamping Plate from BPS

I managed to get most of the designs stamped on my nails so that you could see how they transfer.  I  obviously wouldn’t wear them all like this under normal circumstances.  I think that you could create some fun and funky manicures with these designs.  You could do a Captain America theme with the star designs, or a romantic look with the floral design.  The wave patterns are very modern and sophisticated and I think will look quite posh.  Most of the designs stamped pretty evenly, though I did struggle with the floral design.  I used Sinful Colors Black on Black over Color Club Polish in Put a Pin in It.  I think I may have had better luck with a proper stamping polish and will try that in the future.  Otherwise, I have no complaints.  This is a fun and versatile plate.  The Star, Wave, Flower Pattern stamping plate is currently on sale for $1.94 on the BPS website.

Review: BPS Dancing Peacock Themed Stamping Plate

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.

Peacock Themed Stamping Plate

Peacock Themed Stamping Plate

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.

Stamped Holiday and Winter Nails from BPS

Christmas Santa Design Nail Art Stamp Template

Christmas Santa Design Nail Art Stamp Template

The Born Pretty Store sent me a lovely little Christmas themed stamping plate for review, and I have it today to show you.  I know that it may seem a little early, but I wanted to get this review of the Christmas Santa Design Nail Art Stamp Template up so that you have the chance to order it in time to use it before Christmas.  I really like the designs on this plate, and I think that you will too.  The best part is that the designs are great, not just for Christmas, but the whole winter season as well.  Keep reading to see what I mean.

The first thing that jumps out at you when you look at this plate might be the Santa, or possibly the stockings or candy cane.  There are definitely several Christmas designs on the plate.  To get this look, I used Wet n Wild Megalast Nail Color in I Red a Good Book for the base color, then stamped with Sinful Colors Snow Me White and BPS black stamping polish.  My accent nail is China Glaze Ultamate Holiday with China Glaze Holly-Day for stamping.  I thought the stamping plate was very easy to use.  The stamps themselves applied pretty well with clear images and no real trouble.  The only issue I had was with the Christmas tree because Holly-Day wasn’t opaque enough to stand out over the glitter.  I stamped another layer over the first tree and was mostly able to line it up.  If it looks a little blurry, that’s why- it had nothing to do with the stamp itself.

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.  It looks a lot more complicated than it is, and once you get the hang of it can be a lot of fun to experiment with different polishes and patterns.  Here is a completely different look using the same stamping plate.

Winter Snow Themed Manicure

As I said before, the Christmas Santa Design Nail Art Stamp Template can be used beyond Christmas.  This is a winter snow themed mani that would be perfect for January.  I was a little concerned with how the house would stamp since the lines are so fine, but it stamped perfectly on the first try.  To get this look I used Zoya Nail Polish in Neve for the base color, then stamped with Sinful Colors Snow Me White.  If you don’t celebrate Christmas, or don’t go for traditional red Santa type designs, this plate is still a good option for you.  If you look at the plate, you will see that there is even a cute little double bell design that would be perfect for a wedding.  There are 14 designs total on the plate, and the possibilities are endless.
