Review of Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BPL-028

Attention all lace loving friends!  This is the plate for you!


BPL-028 plate from Born Pretty Store.

I’ve had my eyes on this plate for quite some time now.  The thing that I love the most about it are the lace doily patterns with their fancy edges.  Normally you would have to erase parts of a stamped design with a cotton swab and some acetone to get such nice borders, but this will save you time.

As always, Born Pretty Store plates come shipped in a cardboard storage sleeve, and the plate itself is covered with a thin piece of plastic film that must be removed before use.  The long rectangular plates are also mounted onto a piece of white plastic so that you can’t cut yourself on the metal edges.


The cardboard sleeve protects the plate, although now that I own a few of these, I’m starting to wish that the sleeve was printed with the plate pattern so that I can easily identify which plate is inside. You can remedy this situation by stamping each of the patterns onto the package on your own.

The rectangular images measure 1.5 cm by 2.2 cm while the doilies have diameters varying from 2.3 cm at the narrowest point (seen in the design at the top left hand corner) to 3.2 cm at the widest point (seen in the design that is in 2nd from the bottom right hand corner.  You will find no problems finding a pattern big enough for your nails provided that your stamper is large enough to transfer the image.

The etching is perfectly done, and picking up the images with your stamper is not a problem.  The plate is a joy to use.


A subtle yet beautiful bridal themed manicure using the doily design on the lower right hand corner of the BPL-028 plate.

Those lovely curvy edges work well as a cuticle design.


You can take advantage of the edges of the doily patterns to create elegant looks that cover only half your nail. This scalloped lace manicure was created with the design on the bottom row of the plate, 2nd from the left.

If you have a classy, timeless, and sophisticated style, this is definitely a must have item in your collection.  You’ll be able to find an excuse to use this plate again and again throughout the year.
