Hi there everyone! Today I have 2 different brands of nail stamping plates to share with you all.
Drama Queen Nails were nice enough to send me 2 Nail stamping plates that they will be selling. If you live in Australia...or anywhere really, Drama Queen Nails has an amazing range of Nail stamping plates, accessories and nail polish. You can pretty much get everything you need all in one place!
So As it is Stamp-a-Palooza, I will show you in detail the 2 plates and then share a manicure I created with the plate, just to give you an idea what kind of awesome designs you can do with a single plate.
First up is Sugar Bubbles SB005- This was my first experience with Sugar Bubbles. I had previously purchased a Sugar Bubble plate but I had not used it yet. So I was excited to see how the plate performed compared to other brands.
Here is the plate.
I love that this plate is 10 cm x 4 cm in size. Due to its large size there are a lot of images on the plate. You have 6 full size stamping images, 8 single images and 6 french tip images. Plus the 2 little images at the bottom,so a great variety. The full size images are 2cm x 1.5 cm in size. This will fit the average nail no dramas, but if you have longer or wider nails you will need to stamp twice.All of the images stamped well, apart from the "I <3 nail art " image. For what ever reason I just could not get it to stamp in fill for me. It could have been my stamper? or even the polish I was using ,who knows? I might try again with a different stamper at another time.
With the stamping plate I decided to see how well all the images co-ordinated together. I Created the below manicure with Glitter Gal White pointer, and Stamped with Black and Fluro Pink stamping polish.
He He plate 01- Is a traditional round plate. I had never used this brand before either, so it was a nice treat to receive it. The plate was divided into quarters so if you have longer nails you would be able to stamp in one go.I liked all 4 designs and felt they would be great for a simple but effective manicure! The plate is 6 cm across and each square stamping area is 3 cm.
I decided to do a manicure with this plate as well to see how it stamped. I found that all the designed stamped great!
The 2 plates I got to road test were both great. I loved the patterns and the effectiveness of stamping. It makes a huge difference when you get a branded plate to a cheap ebay one!
