Born Pretty Store: Floral Stamping Plate Nail Art and Review

Press Sample

Greetings, dear readers! I had planned to get this post up yesterday, but it was a crazy day for me and the words just weren't flowing. I'm think I'm coming down with something, but I have a few minutes to myself and I wanted to get this post finalized and live. Let's do this!
I'm starting off a little differently than my normal post, but I just had to share this photo! I used Fair Maiden Polish in Fire Frost for the base of my nail art. If you don't already have this shade, you need to pick it up asap! This was a Christmas gift to me from the hubby, and it's gorgeous!

I wanted to create a soft and feminine look with this polish, and I had the perfect solution thanks to Born Pretty Store.
One of the items they sent me to review was this beautiful stamping plate, and I immediately fell in love with the delicate flowers. Ready to see what I did with it? Check it out below!
This is not exactly what I intended to do when I planned this manicure, but I had such difficult time with the stamping plate. No matter what polish I used, I could not get the image to pick up at all with my squishy stampers. I finally had success when I switched over to my hated Salon Express stamper. Yes, my feelings on that stamper are that strong. I always have to worst time transferring images, and the stamping head is too small to fully transfer the images onto my curved, long nails. I had to modify the design and add a french tip to cover the nail that did not stamp over. The final look is lovely and I am happy with it, but I am not happy that this plate would not work with one of my preferred stampers. If you like stamping with a firmer stamp head, the pickup was flawless.

The Qgirl-057 stamping plate is available for purchase from Born Pretty Store here.
