Born Pretty Store - BP49 Stamping Plate (Sailor Moon) with China Glaze, Zoya and Hits

Press Sample

Hello! Today I have a lovely stamping plate to share with you all today. This plate is called "Lovely Mixed Star & Moon Various Images Stamping Template BP49". However, I think it's pretty obvious that it's Sailor Moon inspired. I was very excited to get this plate because Sailor Moon was my #1 thing growing up. I learned how to program websites so I could make a Sailor Moon fan page, that's how much I loved it. I had a ton of different ideas for this mani but none of them panned out because I need to buy more stamping polishes. I don't have a lot of color options to work with. So, I went with white over neon skittles.

As far as the plate goes, it's etched well, no complaints. The only problems I ran into were totally unrelated to the plate. I have very curvy nails so a squishy stamper is my only option, however, you can see sometimes with a squishy stamper on a very curved nail, the images get warped a little and you can really tell with circles. :P

If you don't want to hear more about me, just skip on to the swatch because this next bit is totally unrelated to nails. So, as I said I was really into Sailor Moon, Pokemon and anime in general back around 1998-1999. Toonami on Cartoon Network was in it's prime and I was 12-13 years old. I was having a hard time with the social aspects of school so I retreated into Excite chat rooms using a program called Virtual Places. (Shout out to the Japan, Sailor Moon Club and DNA Graphics chat rooms) I met a lot of really awesome friends there. I learned how to program raw HTML to make a fan site for Sailor Moon. My VP friends used to teach me how to Photoshop in exchange for HTML lessons. When one of my good friends left for a new type of game called EverQuest (the first successful MMO), I decided to try it out. So, long story short, I turned into an MMO nut and I still play EverQuest, I've played on and off (mostly on) for about 15 years and I met my husband 5 years ago on EverQuest. Now, Sailor Moon is being remade and it's pretty awesome. You can watch the new Sailor Moon Crystal on or if you're feeling nostalgic. Forewarning: It's Japanese Audio with English sub so unfortunately it's not ready for the young kids yet. So, that's the story behind my love of Sailor Moon. :P
