I've been waiting for this set for so long, and I can surely say it was worth the wait... :)
The package was cute, a plastic case, with all the plates packed together... :)
All plates come with a backing, which is safe for your fingers... I don't know about previous editions, but the first and the second BM sets I ordered from Amazon were also covered... :) But I've heard horror stories of laides cutting themselves, so I try to be careful with the plates anyway... :)
Oh, and all the plates are covered with clear blue stickers to prevent scratches. Don't forget to take them off before using... I can tell that was the worst of all. I lost two nails to that. Hope there was a better way to get rid of the blue plastic. I tried tweezers but they did not work for me...
Anyway, here are plates... :)
Aren't they the best? I loved all the images on this set.
And for those who are curious about the size of the full nail images, here's a comparison of all the plates that I own...
BM 3rd set is definetely bigger than the 1st set. It is slightly bigger than the 2nd set and Konad. And they seem to have the same width as the Cheeky 2012 set, but they are surely longer... :) Hope that helps... :)
