Just when you thought Christmas was over, here I am bringing you a review of a Christmas stamping plate! In all honesty, this plate (the Christmas L005 plate from Born Pretty Store) has more designs on it that have to do with winter than they have to do with Christmas. I didn’t even create a Christmas manicure with it!
The plate comes in a Christmas themed cardboard sleeve with the open end sealed with a label printed with the item’s barcode and number. Instructions are printed on the back of the packaging.
As is the case with almost all rectangular plates these days, this one is mounted on a piece of white plastic so that the chances are low that you will cut yourself on one of the edges. The corners are rounded to also prevent injury.
The Christmas L005 plate has 6 rectangular images running along the bottom which measure 1.5 x 2 cm, a size that is big enough to cover most nails. Even if those images aren’t big enough for you, a plethora of smaller ones cover the top portion of the plate which you can mix and match to create your own unique design.
One of the first manicures I did with this item was an animals in space design. The abundance of stars and constellations made it easy to find different images to cover my nails, and the animals were good vehicles for the reverse stamping technique.
I also made a pretty manicure using the snowflake ornaments from the top right portion of the plate using double stamping to formulate a fetching winter arrangement on my nails.
The images are well etched, and even the tiniest dotted lines get picked up with ease. This cute plate will be a good friend through the cold winter months!
