Today we’re going to take a closer look at the Born Pretty Tropical Punch L002 stamping plate, a fun item that will transport your nails to your favorite island destination.
This plate comes shipped in an elegant cream and gold cardboard sleeve that matches Born Pretty’s latest re-branding. The open end is sealed with a sticker that states the name of the plate and shows some of the designs that can be found on it. Notice that the bar code on the sticker is not the same as the bar code on the back of the sleeve. It probably would have been a wiser decision for the company to have only printed the bar code on the sticker as this can be confusing for retailers.
The plate has a “protection sticker” as it is called in their list of instructions on the back of the package. This refers to the blue plastic that covers the metal surface. This can be discarded once it is removed as you can store the plate in its slip cover to prevent it from getting scratched.
The Tropical Punch L002 plate has lots of fun images. There are 6 rectangular designs running along the bottom that measure 1.5 x 2 cm, which is great for those who have long nails. You can really personalize your look with the numerous single images of flowers, leaves, birds, and fruit, several of which can be filled in and reverse stamped for even more levels of detail.
I first chose to make a palm tree and flamingo manicure with different elements from the plate.
You can also keep things a little more simple and understated by only use 2 images for a design, as I did here for this pineapple mani.
The geometric designs on the bottom of the plate can be used for any kind of manicure, and the possibilities are endless as to what you can do with all the images. Everything on the plate is well etched, so you won’t have a problem creating the manicure of your tropical desires. It’s an item that is definitely worth a spot in your collection.
