Born Pretty Store review: Stamping plate QA59

I got this beautiful stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. You can find it on their website with this name: Nail Art Stamp Template Elegant Lace Rose Bowknot Pattern QA59, item ID: 6460.

I like to see manicures made using stamping plates, I really admire some of them because they look like real pieces of art, but I have to admit that I do stamping manicures very rarely... 
Lately I got two Born Pretty Stamping plates. The first one is the stamping plate QA27 that I reviewed some days ago in my post Born Pretty Store review: Stamping plate QA27, and I chose it because it has beautiful floral and dot patterns that I really love. The other one is this one, the stamping plate QA59, and I chose it because of floral patterns of course and because of two wonderful paisley patterns that look incredible; also, the other small patterns are very cute, like the little rose, I'm sure that it will embellish one of my manicures soon :-) 

All Born Pretty Store stamping plates are protected by a thin protective film, you should remove the film before use, so that the nail polish can be transferred by the stamper :-)

When it comes to stamping manicures I'm just a beginner, so if you are a beginner like me maybe these instructions will be useful to you; if you are already a "pro" in stamping, you can just skip this part and scroll down to my manicure :-)

1. apply base coat or regular nail polish on your nail, let it dry completely
2. apply nail polish to desired image on your stamping plate; you could use special stamping nail polishes, or find out which nail polishes from your collection work good for stamping
3. with a scraper leaned over 45 degrees scrape off excessive nail polish quickly from inside to outside border of your stamping plate
4. press the stamper with a gentle rolling motion to "pick up" the design, so that the image is transferred on the stamp
5. stamp the image on your nail with a gentle rolling motion, so that the image is transferred on your nail
6. apply top coat to "seal" your manicure

As you might know I love free hand nail art and I enjoy it a lot, but if you are not so good in free hand drawing or when you don't have so much free time for a complicated free hand drawing manicure, stamping plates could be a very good solution for you! :-) Of course, it needs a little bit of practice (just like every other nail art technique) but it offers many different possibilities and interesting designs! :-)

Here is my skittlette stamping manicure, I hope you like it! :-)

Konad white stamping polish
