BornPretty Store BP L 004 Stamping Plate

Today I have Born Pretty Store's rectangular plates on my blog. It is BP L 004 and it has 21 designs on one plate!!!! Yay!!!

The plates arrive in a card sleeve, which is nice, because I don't have any files to store them so these sleeves come in handy in my nail art closet.. :)

The plate has a white plastic backing, and the blue film in the front.

Look at all the lovely designs... Lots of possibilities...

The images are 1,7cm to 1,5 cm while the plate itself measures 13cm to 7cm with the white backing.

The images fit nicely on my nails and thumbs. And all of them are etched nicely...

Here are two manis I did using this plate...

I did not have any image picking problems at all.

The plate is now on sale for $4.79 at Born Pretty Store. If you use my discount code HLL91 at checout, you get an extra 10% off. And do not forget free international shipping!!!!

Happy Shopping :)


BornPretty Store BP69 Stamping Plate

Today I'll be showing you another lovely plate from Born Pretty Store. It is plate BP69 with bubble and dandellion blowing girl images.

Just like the other plates, this plate comes in a card sleeve. These sleeves come in handy whil travelling, if you take only one or two plates with you.

The plate has a backing and the blue film in the front, just as expected. :D

I love the "hello" baloons in different languages and also the heart made with hands image... the bottom left image looks like daisy petals to me. I wonder what you make out of it. :D

Moving on to my mani, I used OPI My Vampire is Buff again for the base. It is my favorite mani base nowadays. :)

I really had hard time stamping the dandellion images. the stamper did not catch a good image no matter how hard I tried. At the end, I gave up and made hand painted dandellions instead, and as you can see, they were a big fail. :D

On the other hand, I used the bubble blowing girl image, which stamped nicely. I made some dots with a dotting tool for the middle and ring fingers.

Overall, I loved the images on this plate. I did not have a problem with stamping other images, but the dandellions gave me a hard time. Maybe I should try it with a different stamping polish and stamper...

Anyway, this plate is $2.99 at Born Pretty Store with free international shipping but if you use my discount code HLL91, you get an extra 10% off.

Happy Shopping!


Glitter Gal - Crushed Ego

This is maybe the hundreth time I'm putting on this polish and trying to photograph it, but hell, it looks so dull in photos....

But the real version is sooooo beautiful!

Anyway, I give up trying to photograph it and I'll show you the best photos I was able to get...

This is Glitter Gal Crushed Ego. My first Glitter Gal polish to be exact.

It is a purple holo!

But beware, you are not supposed to put a topcoat over it. The topcoat totally dulls the holo effect. I have 2 coats on without  a topcoat. I was worried that the drying time would be long because of that, but it dried fast, so no problems there... :)

I will take better pictures of you one day, baby... One day... :D


BornPretty Store BP54 Stamping Plate

Hello everyone!

I know I've been away for a long time but I hardly found time to put on polish, let alone writing a blog... :)

But now I'm back with awsome plate reviews from Born Pretty Store!

The first plate for today is BP54. I picked this plate because of the owls and I don't regret it.

First of all, the Born Pretty Store plates come in a card sleeve like this one, which is cute, if you don't have a storage binder or such.

They are regular sized round plates with backing and the classic blue film.

You can see that the images are etched nicely on the plate.

I did testing of all images and they stamp nicely.

Moving on to the manis...

I used the stamping decal technique for the flower mani below. The base is OPI My Vampire is Buff and I filled the images with the bright pink from Face of Australia. And then added the pink studs to index and pinkie fingers.

For the second mani from this plate, I used the owl images.  The base is again OPI My Vampire is Buff and for the accent nail, I used two coats of Golden Rose Jolly Jewels, a black based gold glitter.

I loved the owl plate! The small ones are soooo cute!

Anyway, for those of you that did not know, Born Pretty Store offers free shipping worldwide and with my discount code HLL91, you get an extra 10% off from the regular price which is $2.99 at the moment.
