Testing out Born Pretty Store's Passionate Desert Stamping Plate

Press Sample

Stamping is arguably my favorite nail art technique, and when I had the opportunity to combine it with my beloved desert, I was all too eager to test out this plate from Born Pretty Store. The BP-A04 Passionate Desert Stamping plate contains 14 different images to chose from, and with the relatively large image sizes, should be able to cover fairly lengthy nails.

In spite of having several cute cactus and very obviously southwestern designs to choose from, I was really feeling the chain link pattern on the bottom right corner when I went to create my nail art.

I used multiple polishes to test out this plate. Once my black base was dry, I used a white stamping polish on the image. I then used two non-stamping polishes side by side and layered over the white to see how they would hold up with this plate.

The white stamping polish picked up the image perfectly from the first roll of the stamper. I already knew the white polish worked well for stamping, so the ease of use with this particular image certainly made me happy. While the pink and purple polishes don't quite have the "wow" factor in regards to intensity, these are not stamping polishes that normally take two if not three coats for opacity.

Born Pretty Store stamping plates can be a little hit or miss for me, and this one was a win! The images are etched deeply enough that it can work with both stamping and non-stamping polishes pretty easily. This is the primary thing I look for when it comes to stamping plates as the designs themselves are a matter of personal preference.

You can pick up the Passionate Desert Stamping Plate from Born Pretty Store here. This plate retails for $5.99, but at the time of this post, it is marked down to just $2.99. The full price is fair, but why not save some extra money and pick it up while it is marked down?
