Born Pretty Store: Zoo-Inspired Stamping Plate

Press Sample

Happy hump day, dear readers! This week is dragging by at a painfully slow rate, and I'm sure a lot of it is because I am STILL sick and I'm solo parenting all week while the hubby is out of town for work. I can only rest so much when my youngest really wants me to play! I did manage to test out a new-to-me stamping plate from Born Pretty Store this week, so read on to check out my thoughts about it!

I don't believe this wildlife-inspired plate is particularly new to the shop although it is a new one for me. Whenever I review items from Born Pretty Store, it is often things I have personally selected myself, and I had picked out this plate with the plans of using it before a tentatively planned zoo trip this past weekend. I was far too sick for the trip to take place, but I was still happy to sport zebra-inspired nail art this week.

I decided to step outside the typical black and white colour scheme for the zebra look and instead started off with KBShimmer Pinking Of Paradise as my base. I then stamped on the zebra striping with Pueen Black Jack.

I was really happy with how well this stamped for me! I didn't have to play around with different stampers, scrapers, or polishes to find a suitable combination that would work for me. It made stamping a very quick and simple process, something I can definitely appreciate! Now my alignment and cleanup apparently needs a little extra attention, sadly something I didn't notice until editing photos last night for this post! At least that's user error and has nothing to do with this stamping plate!

This particular stamping plate, BP-16, can be purchased directly from Born Pretty Store here. It retails for an affordable $2.99, and at the time of this post, it is even cheaper as it is marked down to $1.59. Now that's a great price for several wildlife images for your next trip to the zoo or safari!

While you are visiting the Born Pretty Store site, but sure to check out all the site has to offer for your nail art needs. They offer a range of options so you'll likely find something to suit your taste!

Also, be sure to use discount code QWL91 to save 10% off any full-priced items in your shopping cart! Born Pretty Store is already quite affordable, but saving some cash is always a good thing!

Have you tried any stamping plates from Born Pretty Store? Are the images on this particular plate ones you would enjoy using? What other nail art supplies are of interest to you? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
