Today we’re going to look at the Chinese Style L005 stamping plate from Born Pretty. At first glance, you will think that this plate is only good for Chinese New Year, but it can be used for all sorts of manicures.
I’ve got a new favorite stamping plate brand, and it’s called Harunouta! Based on the characters (and cherry blossoms) on the packaging, I’m guessing that it is a Japanese company.
The plate is the same size as the long plate series from Born Pretty Store and comes mounted on a piece of white plastic so that you can’t cut yourself on the metal edges of the plate.
The designs are super cute and relate to technology. Gears, robots, conveyor belts, and circuit board patterns abound on the plate! The best part is that the etching is perfect. I had no problems picking up the designs with my stamper, especially because the images don’t use excessively fine details that can’t be engraved deeply.
What I love about the patterns is how large they are. Even if you have long nails, you have plenty of areas to choose from so that you don’t ever have to stamp over the same area twice. Especially with the gears, I was able to stamp from 4-5 different parts of the image before having to clean the plate with acetone, so it saved me time, nail polish remover, and cotton balls!
The robots are cute and on the large side, so you would most likely have to stamp one complete robot across 2-3 nails unless your nails are super long. The heads alone make for a fun, futuristic mani.
Overall, this plate is a wonderful purchase for anyone and well worth the money. The quality is top notch for a stamping plate, and it’s a great pick for beginner and professional nail artists alike. You will definitely enjoy using this product and creating tech savvy manicures!
