Up for consideration today is stamping plate BP-X03 from Born Pretty Store. It comes in the standard 6 cm x 6 cm size and will fit in holders that accommodate square plates.
A word of caution when removing the film. I never understood how people could cut themselves on stamping plates until I used a square shaped style. I think that because the edges of the plate are straight rather than curved, there is more of a tendency for the edge to act like a knife, so please be careful when handling the plate to peel off the film. I held onto the sides a little more tightly than I should have, and I ended up cutting my middle and index fingers to the point where one of the cuts was bleeding! Under normal use, I don’t see this being a problem, but don’t go gripping the sides too hard. On the plus side, at least the corners are rounded, so you can’t stab or scratch yourself with a point by accident.
The plate comes with a cardboard sleeve which protects it from scratches while in storage once the film is removed. The back also shows instructions for how to use the plate should this be the first one that you have ever bought.
The back of the plate is coated and displays the name of the brand.
As for the patterns, they are a lovely mix of lace and bows.
The quality of the etching is excellent. None of the details are too small where they can’t be picked up by a stamper, so the image transfers look beautiful.
The assortment of full nail designs and smaller images will provide you with endless inspiration for many manicures. I know that I’ll be using it again for sure!
