Cheeky Beauty Stamping Plates: Summer Collection (CH30-CH55) ~ Review

In my today's post I have an honour to present you a review of a whole set of stamping plates created by Cheeky Beauty - I'm sure you have hears of this brand already : ) In their online store they offer a whole range of nice stuff for nail art, stamping beauty and more. 

The stamping plates set I am going to review is Cheeky Plates Summer Collection 2012, it consists of 26 (!) stamping plates and includes 161 different designs. This set is currently a top-seller on their web-site, and it's available here for 24,99$ (+free worldwide shipping!) - less than 1$ for a plate, which is a super fair deal.

The plates arrived to me in a big envelope full of cute colourful things, including 2 postcards, a personal letter (very pleasant to get :)) and, of course, the plates themselves. Do you see this adorable box on the photo below? Seriously, I think it's the best packaging for a stamping plates set I've ever seen!   


If we open the box, we see the plates piled inside... and not only! There is also a plastic card, which - ! - can be used as a scraper! I never use a metal scraper anyway, but I can tell you that this card is very handy to scrape away the excess polish from the plate, because it's a bit thicker and more resilient than other plastic cards I use. It's also much cuter :) 


Shall we see the plates themselves? The summer collection includes the plates numbered from CH30 to CH 55. The previous plates, CH1-CH26 are combined in the Vibrant Collection, available here.

Why I liked the Summer Collection set is because it combines small images together with full-nail designs, and because the designs themselves are pretty cool and unique. I fell in love with the monsters on CH32!! 
(all images below are clickable!)

Each plate is covered with a blue protection film (that's why the plates look blue on the previous photos), which is easy to remove. Under the film, the designs are very accurate and well-engraved, thus providing a high quality of stamping.


Each plate has also a paper back to protect the fingers and hands from cuts. The edges of the plates are not sharp. And I took a photo of the card again - it's a "nail artist license" as well : ) Now I'm a licensed stamper, hehe : )


And one more VERY POSITIVE feature of the Cheeky plates I wanted to mention - the size of the images! Finally the designers of stamping plates realised that there are women who wear longer nails than nubbins, and that they want to stamp them, too.. The size of Cheeky Beauty plates is approx. 15x20mm, which is larger comparing to, let's say Konad and Bundle Monster. 



And now it's time to move from 'theory' to 'practice' : ) 
Before I show you some designs I made with Cheeky plates, I should say that I was fascinated by the outstanding quality of the plates and their user-friendliness. It's so easy and pleasant to work with them, that even if you are not a stamping pro, I'm sure that you'll get a nice result. Okay, now to my manis with Cheeky plates: 

1. Andreia #75 (2 coats) stamped with CH46 and Manhattan Melting Cobalt


2. OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons (2 coats) stamped with CH52 and Konad Black stamping polish


3. Essie Knockout Pout (2 coats) stamped with CH44 and OPI Pink Flamenco


What do you think, girls? Do you own Cheeky plates? Or planning to get them maybe? :)

  2. Здорово! Классно, что размер тиснения большой, а так же работает с обычными лаками )

    1. Да, размер актуален для тех, кто длинные ногти носит :) А с обычными лаками, если они хромы или просто плотные кремы, хорошо работают все пластинки :)

  3. Not only did I love the designs, but specially the size of them *-*
    That was the one thing I've always wished to change about plates from other brands!!!

  4. The pink mani is seriously awesome :D I like most of the whole nail designs, others not so much. I don't think I would purchase this since there would be plates that I wouldn't use

    1. Thank you :) I told you not so long ago, that I wanted bright pink on my nails, so I did :)

      Well if you buy a set of whatever, you like some things in it more than others, I find it normal. The plates I don't really use I normally send as extras to my swap friends or so.

  10. I'm so in love with these plates... But I'm not sure their designs are big enough for my super long nails (they measure 2.1 cm and my thumbs are 2.3 cm long!)... Maybe should I file my nails more often?! :D

    AntwortenLöschen
    Antworten
    1. No, you definitely should not file your gorgeous nails!! :) But if it happens that they are shorter than usual, you can easily stamp :) And double-stamp the thumbs, I always do it :)
