Born Pretty Store - BP78 Stamping Plate (Oriental Cherry Theme)

Press Sample

I was intending to do another post sooner but, I had some mani block and I just could not do a mani that I liked. Today I finally got one that I liked, there are some imperfections that are driving me nuts on it now that I see the closeups but I've scrapped enough manis over the past couple of days that I'll settle for this one :p.

 I have had mixed results with stamping plates that I've gotten from Born Pretty Store, this one seems to be a keeper, my only complaint would be the plastic film glued on the back peels off very quickly and then you have to remove the glue with acetone or it's all sticky but that is a minor problem. The plates I have ordered are either etched really well or really poorly, this one is etched very well and it's very cheap. I believe they have a new set of plates now that are better quality than their plates of the past, they even have cute little sleeves now.

I used China Glaze Too Yacht to Handle as my base color, this is one from my favorite China Glaze collection, the formula is not great and it's a bit of a challenge to work with but it's an amazing color. This was a limited edition collection so you most likely won't find it in store but it's still available on on-line retailers.

The stamping polish used is Mundo de Uñas - Nabu. I have a mixed review coming up for this stamping polishes, there are a lot of pros and cons, I'll get into those on another post. These are ordered online from Mexico.
I used the Born Pretty Store dotting tools from this set with OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls (limited edition, have to find it on Amazon/Ebay). This is the part I was not happy with, this was my first time dotting and I will have to work on my technique, lol. My hands are not steady at all which is where I ran into problems, I also applied the top coat too early and they smeared a bit.
I used the BPS Clear Jelly stamper which is my new favorite stamper.

That's all for today, thanks for reading!
