Born Pretty... in Plaid!

Hello my friends! I have a lovely manicure to share with you today created with a Born Pretty stamping plate and stamping polish!

Here we go!!!


 The stamping polish used is number #18 from this collection. I do have to say the color is VERY pigmented and can look very awesome and full!

Here is the plate I used! I think I found my new favorite plate! So many lovely options. Here is the link if you want to own this plate for yourself. I can't say I would blame you!


A quick review about these two products. The plate seems really nice at first glance. It was bent a bit in the corner, as you can see, but that didn't hinder the designs at all. My only beef would be that my normal scraping method had to be somewhat altered. Usually I would go from the top of the design, down, but my scraper would drag the other designs and not give me a clean swipe. Aw well, that was no problem at all! =D
The polish is very pigmented as stated. I applied to to one nail fully, and it was pretty uneven, but nothing a good topcoat couldn't fix.

Using them both together, at first, was awesome! Pink and ring finger applied perfectly, first try. I was in love! And then I got to the middle finger. The stamp wouldn't transfer. It dried on the stamp pad that quickly? So I tried again. And again. And again. For some reason the polish was just drying SO fast. I didn't understand what was going on. I used the Zoya I was using in the plate, and it seemed fine? Was it the polish that was suddenly drying too fast? I have no idea. Perhaps the scraping shallowed the design? I doubt that very much.
In the end, I just tried to blame myself and not the product. The last two nails took about an hour to finish, becaue I had to reapply the base and let it dry two more times. =(

 Using Zoya Odette as a base color. I don't know what I had in mind with these colors, but in the pics they look great!! IRL it's a bit busy and kinda messes with your eyes. =)




If you do decide you like this plate and stamping polish, you can get it from the Born Pretty Store. But that's FAR from all they have!! Use the coupon code below!!
Stay tuned for another review for another awesome product I got from them. I just have to learn to use it... You'll see. ;)
