I’ve been considering buying some stamping plates for a very long time. I sorta can’t help but think of stamping as ‘cutting corners’ at nail art instead of free-handing things (which I know is stupid), but I also think you can create some amazingly pretty things with stamping plates. Maybe these plates will change my mind and I’ll never want to do any free-handing again.
I already have two small stamping plates and a stamper (both from Depend), but I haven’t been using them that much – so far.
I’ve been eyeing a couple of stamping plates from Born Pretty Store, so I recently caved in and bought them. Forgive me for already having used some of the products – I didn’t think I was going to make a haul post, and I couldn’t wait to try these out. Also, please excuse the weird angles and/or visible hands and/or dust particles in the images – mirror-like objects are super hard to photograph properly.
And of course I had to get the oh-so-popular clear jelly stamper, but I cannot for the life of me get it to work.. I ended up using my regular stamper and that worked much better. I’ve heard you shouldn’t prep this in any way, but since it doesn’t really pick up the images, I’m thinking maybe I should? Please let me know if you have any tips about that!
I think my favorite is probably the one with the plaid patterns on it – that’s going to be the first one I’m going to use. I also really like the one with the all the triangles. I can’t wait to try these out!
