Today’s review covers the BPX-L020 plate from Born Pretty Store, which is full of geometric designs.
The plate has the perfect mix of 15 symmetrical and abstract patterns that are well suited for many different kinds of manicures. The full size rectangular images measure 1.6 cm by 1.8-2.1 cm and are large enough to cover your thumbnails without a problem.
When you first receive the plate, you will have to remove the protective blue plastic wrap before you can use it.
Speaking of protection, the plate also has rounded edges and is mounted on a piece of white plastic so that you can’t injure yourself with the sides. Trust me, it is totally possible to cut yourself on the edge of a metal stamping plate as I have done it accidentally myself. The plastic backing is thick enough to make this impossible to do, and it prevents you from being able to make direct contact with the metal edges.
This plate, as well as other plates form Born Pretty, comes with a cardboard sleeve to protect it from being scratched while it is in storage. The shape and size of the plate is comparable to others from the rectangular series and is perfectly portable.
I first used the pattern from the bottom row, 3rd from the left to recreate the gold veined mirror look that was popular in the 1970s.
I also used the image from the bottom right corner of the plate to make stone marble nails.
Because of the geometrical designs, none of the lines are too fine or detailed to prevent your stamper from picking up the nail polish. The plate has fairly deep etching as well, so it is perfect for beginners to use as well as seasoned professionals.
You can create other quirky and fun looks using the other images on the plate. It is super easy to use and is quickly cleaned with acetone and a cotton pad. Why not add some geometry to your collection today?
