For the Victorian and baroque style lovers out there, here’s a classy plate that will have you swooning.
BP-X01 plate from Born Pretty Store.
This item is from Born Pretty Store’s 6 cm square plate collection. The quality is amazing, as you will soon see.
The plate comes wrapped with a thin blue layer of plastic over the top. This protects it from getting scratched while in transit. Be sure to remove this layer carefully before using it.
Because the plate edges are straight, you must take extra caution while handling it. I managed to cut myself by accidentally gripping the sides too hard while removing the blue film. The sides aren’t overly sharp, but they can still do some damage. Now I know why their rectangular plate series comes mounted on plastic backing!
The back of the plate has the company and website info printed on it.

The plate also comes with a cute cardboard envelope holder to further prevent scratches from getting etched into the metal surface while in storage. You can read the instructions for how to use the plate on the back of the sleeve.

I wish that the package had a picture of the plate on it somewhere so that you can see what is inside right away rather than having to take the plate out of the holder each time you browse your collection.
The image sizes are generous. The square patterns will not cover extremely long nails, but they are perfectly suited for toenails and average length nails.
As always, the etching is deep, and your stamper should have no problem picking up the images.

You can also try your hand at simple reverse stamping with some of the freestanding designs in the bottom row of the plate.

Put the two elements together, and you have a beautiful Beauty and the Beast inspired manicure!

You should be able to get lots of great manicures (and pedicures!) out of this plate by changing up the color scheme. Your nails will look elegant and classy with any one of these patterns on them.
