Born Pretty Store review: stamping plate BP-21 - Black & golden manicure with golden beads

I got this beautiful stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. You can find it on their website with this name: 4 Mixed Patterns Nail Art Stamp Template Image Plate Born Pretty 21, item ID: 17266.

The stamping plate that I'm showing you today is the BP-21, one of new Born Pretty Store stamping plates. 
As you can see, the designs on it are circles, waves, lines or filigree and they are all beautiful and eye-catching :-) I like all of them :-) 

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 :-)

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 :-)

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! :-)

I didn't have any problem working with this stamping plate, the image transfered to my nails easily, so I think that Born Pretty Store stamping plates are a good choice, also for beginners like me :-) And, there are so many new Born Pretty Store stamping plates with so many beautiful designs that the only problem you could have is which one to choose :-)

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