Hello! Today we’re going to take a look at a stamping plate from Beauty Big Bang. I was super excited when they came out with their own line of plates, so here’s a peek at BeautyBigBang017!
This plate is the same size as other square sized plates from other manufacturers. It is packaged inside a small envelope made of cardstock that is printed with the company information. The back has a simple picture tutorial of how to use the plate.
My only complaint is the same one that I have for a lot of plates: I wish that the packaging had a picture of the plate that was inside of it or that it had a plastic window on the front so you can see what is inside the envelope. As much as it protects the plate from getting scratched, I prefer not to keep my plates in these types of holders because it’s too much of a hassle to have to keep taking plates out from their encasements just to see which designs are on them.
The surface of the plate itself is covered with a thin plastic film (tinted blue) to prevent the surface from becoming scratched during shipment. This layer needs to be peeled off and removed prior to using the plate.
Do use caution when handling the edges as they can be sharp enough to cut you if you handle the plate aggressively. The corners are at least rounded so you can’t injure yourself that way.
Once the plastic film is removed, the true beauty of the designs can be appreciated.
This plate is very progressive and celebrates LGBTQ Pride. Of course, the designs can be tailored to fit the themes of love and festivity even if it isn’t Pride Week. The images are all very fun and whimsical, and you will be able to create many manicures from this plate.
I chose to do some rainbow gradient stamping combined with the image from the top left corner to create the colorful manicure below.
The etching is done very well and is compatible with a lot of nail polishes. The rectangular images are also large enough to cover an entire thumbnail.
I highly recommend this plate to beginner and advanced nail artists alike. You will love using it all year round!
