Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - BP06

Born-Pretty-Store-BPS06-BPS06-Stamping-Plate Born-Pretty-Store-BPS06-BPS06-Stamping-Plate

Born Pretty Store recently came out with their own range of stamping plates, I managed to get a couple of these in a special 1p sale. Having not tried any of there plates before I was interested in seeing if they actually stamped, and I was pleasantly surprised.

These plates come with a branded backing which means the edges not sharp.


I used Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire to stamp with and as you can see I didn't have problems with any of the images other than a tiny bit of the gender image. The moon with the fairy in it was quite a large image which I don't think would fit it all on anyone's nails but it is a very delicate and whimsical design.


I think the wand image is my favorite, I like the extra strings it has on it.

Once I have used this plate you will be able to see all of them by clicking here.

I also have a 10% off code for the website which you can use if you want to;

Nails Inspired by Black Embellished Dress

Quiz Clothing are doing a nail art competition where you create nails to resemble a dress, after looking on the Quiz website I was inspired to create these nails from this dress. I used negative space around the cuticle to resemble the v shape neckline, a nude base with black lace for the fabric and some black striping tape around the middle nails to create the ribbon which cinches in the waist of the dress.

Review: 3mm Sparkling Water Opalescent Studs Nail Accessories

These are listed on the Born Pretty Store as "Sparkling Water Drop Flat Back Nail Studs Charming 3D Nail Art Decoration". They come in 3mm and 4mm, these are the 3mm version.

You get a small resealable bag of 10 3mm studs, The description of these are sparkling water drop studs, I would describe them as being opalescent on the base with a clear domed plastic shape over the top. 

These are very pretty to the eye and change depending on the angle you are holding them on, in the way a duo-chrome polish is. Because of this it is very difficult to accurately photograph them!

They are described as being 3D, while they aren't flat they don't stick out too much. To use them I pressed them on to tacky polish, you could use nail glue for a stronger hold. You can use them in a simple nail look of go for something more elaborate such as adding to stamping which I show below.

First I used them as a cuticle accent;

I then thought it would be interesting to use them as an accent to some stamping;
