Because I’ve been doing so much stamping nail art to save time lately, I thought it only fitting that I review some of the plates that I have been using.
Today’s review centers on plate BP-L070 from Born Pretty Store. This plate features 7 large rectangular images along with 16 smaller geometric patterns. All the designs are sophisticated and modern and make for some chic manicures.
As with all Born Pretty plates, this one comes with a floral printed cardboard slipcover, and the plate itself comes shipped with the standard blue plastic cling film on top of the metal to protect it from getting scratched. Also noteworthy of the rectangular series plates from this company is that it is mounted on a piece of white plastic and that it has rounded corners to prevent yourself from getting injured while handling the item.
The back of the slipcover contains the company’s social media information along with instructions for how to stamp your nails.
I was able to get great results from this plate thanks to its deeply etched lines. The polish lifted up effortlessly and precisely with my stamper, and I was able to use a few different techniques with it.
Using the 2nd image from the top left side of the plate, I made a faux 3D geometric look by first stamping the pattern with black polish and then stamping over the design again using silver polish. The lines are impressively straight when they transfer, and thanks to the large image size, I had no problem covering my nails completely with the design.
I also did some reverse stamping with the design on the far right, middle row of the plate to create some fun summer neon nails. After stamping the pattern with black polish, I colored in between the lines and transferred my decal to my nails to create a bright and clean look.
All the patterns on the plate look great over a smooshy nail art base. I used a unicorn color theme to make the avant garde design below. It looks super pretty for the spring and summer months!
Overall, if you love simple, clean lines, you will love this plate. There are so many ways you can use it to make impressive looking manicures. The bold lines transfer perfectly onto your nails and can jazz up a basic manicure in no time. This is an easy go-to plate for all year round, and you will be able to create many different looks from it without ever getting tired.
