A blue layer of plastic film cover the top of the plate to prevent it from getting scratched. You must remove this layer prior to using it.

This long rectangular plate is mounted on a piece of plastic to prevent you from cutting yourself along the metal edges. It comes inside a cardboard slipcover that lists basic instructions for use on the back. A sticker with the item number seals the free edge to keep the plate from falling out of it during shipping.

Review of Born Pretty Christmas L005 Stamping Plate

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.

Outer Space Starry Nails

NYC experienced a very strange phenomenon last Thursday. It’s being dubbed the Astoria Borealis, and it was the result of an “arc flash,” so says Con Edison, although initial reports said that it was because a transformer exploded at the power plant, which is located in Astoria, Queens. What resulted was that the sky lit up bright as daylight with blue and orange lights that flickered much like they do when a fluorescent bulb starts to go bad. It was very alarming to see as it was after 9 pm when the sky is normally very dark, and the flashes continued for about 2-3 minutes. This light could be seen from miles away, and social media lit up with all sorts of images and videos from all over the area after it happened.

My initial thoughts were that either aliens had landed or that a bomb had gone off. So naturally that inspired some outer space nail art.

I chose a pretty jelly polish from Pretty & Polished called Don’t Be A Drag for my base color. It kind of looks like a galaxy with all the different kinds of glitter in the polish. You need to apply 3 coats to get good glitter coverage, otherwise the color is very sheer.
