BornPrettyStore: Cute Animal Plate…

So I’ve not written a review in a long long time, apologies! Genuinely, does everyone still find my reviews interesting or at least inspirational?

I received this ‘Cute Animal stamping plate‘ from BornPrettyStore and there are some seriously cute patterns to use. A lot of them are ‘stamp and go’ meaning there’s no need to faff about with reverse stamping and the likes so it’s perfect for pros and beginners alike.

Being a bit of a dinosaur fan, it was an easy call as to which image I was going to use first. I created a very simple background, using scrunched up tinfoil to dab polish on to the green base and started to stamp with the dinosaur image. It only took two practice pick-ups for the plate to warm-up (it’s kind of like breaking in new shoes), meaning what you see below is the third: how crisp is that!

Granted, I was using Konad stamping polish meaning it’s highly pigmented but still pretty impressive especially the dinos tails, spikes and horns.

The next image I chose to use on the plate was one that I could use create a stamping decal with. The rabbits seemed pretty fun, and I like the addition of the broccoli and carrots – cute! Some of the finer lines on the rabbits faces were a little trickier to pick up but nothing too noticeable once it’s on the nail.

Pretty cute huh? This is another example of a BornPrettyStore plate that’s suitable for a variety of themes/holidays. For example rabbits for easter, penguins for winter, hedgehogs for autumn and bats for Halloween.

The last design I created was again a quick stamp and go one, featuring some giraffes. Now on the plate the giraffes are actually part of a pattern, but I chose to discard the surplus animals leaving one on the stamping head at a time. Just because an image is etched in a certain way doesn’t mean you need to use it as such!

BornPrettyStore: Giraffe Stamping…

So after my first experience with the BPS stamping set I couldn’t wait to use it again. This time I decided to trial it out on my mum. I’ve found that Barry M Gelly polishes work quite well, maybe because they’re a bit thicker. I now also feel super cool because I can handle the scraper and stamper correctly, or at least well enough, to make the image transfer each time. And yes, they’re still not perfect but I’m proud of them – they’re 100% better than what I was managing to achieve on my first go.

I think the giraffe design featured on the plate is really cute. It’s just right in those colours for a fresh, spring mani. If you fancy purchasing this plate, which is already super cheap, you can get 10% off (everything that’s not on sale) at the checkout using the code ‘AZYW10’. Yaay
