Stamping Plate QA27 from Born Pretty Store

Let me boast about my new stamping plates: for a while I was not buying any, but I was lucky to get some plates for review from Born Pretty Store. And below is a sneak peek of the result I got with their help:

But let me tell a couple of words about the base colour first: this is a 1EUR (sale) Alessandro Candy Floss Pink polish that I own for ages. Together with 2 other little Alessandros.

Alessandro Candy Floss Pink 

Alessandro Candy Floss Pink is a baby pink creme wannabe, quite whitened out and with a drop of coral. The application is everything but easy, this little b...baby makes such bald spots that you can't imagine. If you get away with 3 coats - you are lucky.

I don't think this polish is still available in stores, but it doesn't matter because I don't recommend it anyway :D The shade is interesting, but not so unique, so you can easily find a substitute. I like how it looked on my nails in the end, and it was a good base for stamping.

The duty is done - the swatches are posted, the honours are paid to the polish, now it goes to "use-them-up" bin and I move furhter to the stamping plate. Here it is, below - QA27, with a blue protection film on the left and ready to use on the right:

As you might know, I prefer the full nail designs over small ones. And for me the major factor is the size of the image on the plate, as I'm not willing to double-stamp, we are not in 2009 ;P In this particular case the size was not a problem at all, the image is 1.6 x 1,4 cm (for comparison: Bundle Monster (2012) is also 1,6 x 1,4 cm, Konad is 1,5 x 1,2 cm). Quite good, eh?

Even better is that this plate retails at $1.99 (!) - you can purchase it here. For this price, the quality was superb - I had no problems with the stamping process whatsoever, I hope it is visible from my pics, even though I used a normal nail polish for stamping - Alessandro Strawberry Daiquiry.

I'm looking forward to testing the other stamping plates as well, but even now I can tell you - I'm quite inspired by the price/quality ratio.

  1. This looks lovely! It's a shame the base pink was difficult to apply, because it's a very pretty colour!
    I have seen this image on Bregje's nails and already liked it. Now that I see on yours, I definitely have to get this plate. ;-)
    Have a great weekend! <3

    1. Thanks! The stamping plate is really good, I also saw Bregje's review and I support here in questioning why to put 2 similar image together, hehe! But overall the plate is worth having! :)

    1. I'm glad that you liked it! :) Alessandro does look nice, from far away especially, but it's not worth the nerves :) Anyway, it was a limited edition or so.. :)

  7. I am really satisfied by the BPS stamping plates! I love them! And I really like the colours you used here, too bad the polishes are so poor but good thing is they are quite dupe-able!

    1. I'm glad you share my opinion! The polishes are not sooo sooo bad, just not the best ones :) But you are right, they are totally replaceable.

    1. I got the little Alessandro on sale from Douglas and Muller in Germany some years ago. I don't know where they are sold in other countries.. but I don't find them so special to want more of them.. :)
