Nail Stamping with Born Pretty Plates

I'll be honest, I really thought these fuller image plates from Born Pretty Store would turn out to be my favorite plates that I own, but it didn't work out that way. I have used these plates a few times now and I'm never quite satisfied with my results, I don't know if it's my color combos or if I'm just being too critical of my work. I do have a couple nail looks to show where I have used these plates today, I'll will continue to tinker around with these to see if I end up with better results somewhere down the road.

First up is plate BP-17 I chose this plate because I really liked the 'fan' design that two of the images have. Gorgeous, right?

For the look I used Ciate Mistress and a white cream for stamping. Please excuse the quality of the photo, I took it with my phone in terrible lighting.

Next I have plate BP-22 I really liked the image from the top left and the one on the bottom, but for my first time using this plate I went with the top left image.

For this look I used Sweet Irish Cream from The Little LacquerBean and a black cream for the stamping. I like the results of this one better than the one above.

I know it's not the plates that I'm not satisfied with because they are really good plates, the etching is just perfect on them and they both have really awesome designs, like I said before it's either my color combos that I've tried or something. I will revisit these plates in the near future though :)

  1. I think it's little things. The red/white one might look better with the fans facing down? The second one might just be the colors. ? Either way, great job stamping! Clean transfer and you didn't bork it with topcoat like I always end up doing. *thumbs up!*

    1. Thanks Lizzy! I'll have to try the fans again and turn them the other way. I got lucky about the top coat, cause usually it smudges my lines too LOL

    2. Can't wait to see if flipping it helps! *fingers crossed*
