First of all, I would like to thank the lovely people at Born Pretty Store for so kindly collaborating with bloggers around the world, including moi. Their vast selection of nail art supplies is a great resource to many of us and they always have promotions and offers to make us happy.
I would like to mention that some of the products in this post were sent as PR samples, where as others were bought by me.
Now, to the photos!
These are the plates I chose:
Born Pretty Store stamping plates have never disappointed me. You can see in the macros below that the images are sharp and easily picked up by the stamper. I love the fact that more and more plates have large patterns, I was often let down when Konad plates did not cater for my large nails. I also enjoy having the freedom to select different areas of the design without being restricted to a rectangle. So well done there!
The plates I used are Qgirl-030, Qgirl-035, BP21, BP42 and MLS301; they are VERY reasonably priced and you can get a 10% discount using the code NLPW10. Don't forget they have free worldwide delivery!
These plates did not appeal to me just for the designs, but also because there was enough space for reverse stamping, as I will show in the photos below:
Reverse stamping is time consuming but I find it strangely relaxing.
Of course they are still great for normal, straight forward stamping:
I mostly stamp using special polish, but have also used A England and Illamasqua for the photos above. Results were still neat and clear, these plates are so good I ordered some more for my sister.
