Review of Beauty Big Bang BBBXL-030 Stamping Plate

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.


This is what you will see upon removing the item from the cardboard envelope. Don’t forget to peel off the layer of blue plastic wrap from the surface of the plate before using it!

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.


Flawless transfers of the snowflake image in the top row, 5th from the left were used here.

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 addition of Rudolph brings the snowflake manicure to a higher level with its level of detail.

The snowflakes from the top left corner of the plate are one of the more elegant designs included.


I have historically had issues stamping with this polish, so the fact that this much of the design picked up from the plate for this snowflake manicure shows how good the etching actually is!

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!
