Born Pretty Store Stamper and Scraper

Hi everyone...

Today I'll be showing you the rectangle stamper I got from Born Pretty Store.

Since I've started stamping, I tried various stampers. For me, Konad works best. And in some cases I use the white silicone squishy stamper I got from E-bay. But other brands just don't work for me.

But this little guy, well, honestly the rectangle shape grabbed my attention first. I thought it might come handy for some stamping situations...

But first, some details....

You get this green stamper and a metal scraper with it when you order. Actually, I am too afraid to scratch my precious image plates, so I always use a credit card for scraping. I have a growing collection of metal scrapers at home. Oh, and the plastic scrapers just don't work for me. It has to be a credit card. :P Anyway, if you are like me, you won't be using the scraper, although many people do, and are highly satisfied with it...

Moving on to the stamper...

The stamper is 2,5cm long and 1,5cm wide. I'm talking about the green part here, not the body.


It is not as soft as a silicone squishy stamper. But it is not hard so you break a nail as well. Let's just say it is firm...

Underneath the green part, there is a plastic part that prevents the stamper going in too deep in the holder. I think this is cool.

As for stamping quality, I had to prime it, just gently to prepare for stamping. I used a gentle buffer and just buffed a few times, gently. And then cleaned it with a non acetone remover. I usually use a lint roller to clean my stampers to keep them safe from acetone.

As far as I can tell, it picks images nicely. I rol it from side to side, and it immediately picks the image.

As for transferring on my nails, I roll it again. Because it is not a soft stamper, I don't prefer pressing it on my nails. I have soft nails, and when I press the stamper it feels weird. So I just roll it... :)

The images transfer nicely on my nails.

Being a rectangular stamper, this one aligns nicely with my nails, and I find it easier to stamp an image where I want it....

Long story short, I liked this one, and will be using it for special occasions like french tips, etc.

Oh, and if you want to get yourself one, you can go to Born Pretty Store's website where they offer free international shipping along with a 10% off with this code : HLL91


Oppps, I almost forgot the mani I did using this stamper and Born Pretty 10 stamping plate... The polish is Essence Under the sea.
