Review: Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA25

Hi!

That's a long time ago... I don't know why exactly, but I just felt not like blogging lately...

But here I am with a nail stamping post, yeeeyy! Also long, long time ago since I posted about stamping!

I've bought a lot of nailplates from Born Pretty Store lately, and I tested one out recently...

My zebra nails

QA25, I believe it stands for Quilty Addition, is a plate with 5 animalprint designs.
This is one of the plates I recently bought. What I didn't noticed, was that these 5 images are a bit smaller then the full nail images on the other QA-plates which I already own. 

Ah well... There's only one solution to make them fit my nails: cut them! SHORT!

What I did:
♥ 1 layer of my favorite basecoat: Orly Nailtrition
♥ 2 coats of OPI Bride's Bouquet
♥ 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat
♥ Black no brand-polish from "Action" + QA25 zebra design
♥ 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat



As you can see on the picture above, the design is -despite the fact that I cut my nails real short- still too little/narrow to fit my thumb :(


The polish that I used is actually no stamping polish, but it is opaque enough to stamp with.
Unfortunately the design is not as crisp as I expected it to be, but the polish was worth trying :)

Next time I'll try a better polish to stamp with.

I'm not really used to designs that are that obvious as this is, so I didn't wore this manicure very long...

This stampingplate is available at Born Pretty Store.com for $2,99 but it is currently on sale for $1,99.

Do you already have some of the QA-plates in your stash?

Thanks for watching!

Smokey Grey Black Matte + silver Zebra...

Hi!

You know... I get bored easily, so after only 2 days of wearing BK Smokey Grey Black Matte I got bored and wanted to spice it up a bit. So with Stargazer Chrome 232 I stamped the Zebra design of Konad's M57 plate on it:

Smokey Grey Black matte with a bit of silver shimmer

Stamping was a bit hard... I still don't know if it has to do with the Stargazer Chrome polish, or maybe the rough underground of the matte polish... I really don't know... Do you?



I think I stamped each nail twice, not because of the length of my nails (so you need to double stamp), no... Because the imaged didn't transfer well from the stamper to my nails! I think it has something to do with the matte polish that didn't adhere well, or something.


So I stamped about 20 nails, and really had it with it at the end, but hey... I think the result is worth it! :)


Have some of you ever used Stargazer Chrome 232 for stamping? Then maybe you know if China Glaze Millenium is better then Stargazer??

Please let me know, because this was worth it, but it took so much time!!

Have a great weekend!
