Review of Beauty Big Bang BBBXL-032 Stamping Plate

Beauty Big Bang has been releasing their line of stamping plates over the past year or so, and the designs keep getting better and better! Over the next few weeks, you can expect to see some reviews of their Christmas/winter themed plates, but we’re going to start with the Beauty Big Bang XL-032 plate first.

Upon unwrapping my order from them, the thing that stands out right away is the packaging. Each of the plates has its own designated cardboard envelope that can be reused for storage purposes. It specifies the name of the plate on the front along with a cute graphic that indicates the theme of the designs that are inside. I still wish these products would have a picture of the plate or a clear window so you can see the contents, but this is already a huge step up to plates from other companies that tend to use the same generic sleeve for all their plates.

Fall Argyle Print Nails

I’m loving all the crimson and gold leaves on the trees right now, and that’s the color palette that I chose for this argyle print manicure.

I started out by painting all my nails a rich metallic dark red. This one is called Red-y & Willing from China Glaze.

Red-y & Willing from China Glaze is close to fully opaque in only one coat, but two coats are shown here without top coat applied.

My schedule has been keeping me really busy lately, so I opted to do some stamping with gold polish (Rose Gold Rendezvous from Pop-arazzi) and a plate from Beauty Big Bang.
