Thanksgiving has passed as has Black Friday, which can only mean one thing: it’s safe to decorate for Christmas! Some may not appreciate the jump start into the holiday season, but it has been proven that decorating for the holidays can put you into a happier mood. Even if you’re not planning to do full on lights and a tree, you can get your nails ready with this plate from Beauty Big Bang!
The Beauty Big Bang XL-030 plate comes in a beautifully printed cardboard envelope. It lists the plate name on the front and has its own personalized UPC code on the back along with a photo tutorial for how to use the product. Unfortunately the holder is not designed to allow you to see the actual images contained on the plate, but at least if you are looking for your Christmas themed plates, this will stand out in your collection.
As is standard with pretty much all stamping plates these days, there is a layer of blue protective film covering the metal part to prevent it from getting scratched during shipment. This is meant to be discarded after removing it. Consider it a seal of freshness for the plate.
Beauty Big Bang’s large rectangular plates are mounted on a piece of white plastic so that the user can’t cut herself on the edges. In addition, the corners are rounded for extra safety.
With the blue film removed, the true beauty of the plate and its images shines through. A total of 11 rectangular images and 5 separate images are included on this item with all the designs catering to a winter wonderland theme.
The images are all deeply etched and transfer beautifully onto your nails.
The characters on the right side of the plate lend themselves well to reverse stamping techniques, although this can be a little difficult to do if you want them to look perfect depending on the the opacity of your stamping polish and the base color you use underneath it.
The snowflakes from the top left corner of the plate are one of the more elegant designs included.
If you’re looking to up your holiday manicure game, I would highly suggest getting this plate. The images range from cute to classy, so you get a good assortment of designs to play with depending on your mood. The plate is super easy to use and cleans up perfectly with pure acetone on a cotton ball. It’s great for beginners and experienced stampaholics alike!
