Born Pretty Store - Stamper and Plate review

Hi everyone! Today I have a little review of a stamper and design plate I was sent to review by Born Pretty Store. Now, just a warning, I am not a professional stamper. I have only been slightly dabbling in it for a few weeks. Thus far none of the stampers and plates I have tried have really worked for me. There is always hype about the Pueen and MoYou plates, but since I am a newbie, i didn't want to spend too much cash buying stuff Ill never be able to use. I thought this was the perfect time to see about reviewing a cheaper option. (cheaper in cost, not quality)

So to begin, I contacted Born Pretty Store about reviewing some of their products.They were kind enough to offer me 2 free items, given that I reviewed them and gave my honest opinion..

The products I chose are

2Pcs/Set Practical Stamping Nail Art Stamper & Scraper

Nail Art Stamp Template Quirky Arabesque Pattern QA88



Again, I am a newbie stamper, but I am actually really impressed. At first I had a little trouble getting the image to o from the stamper to my nail, but after doing a little research and reading other people's tips regarding stamping, I was able to do it!( I buffed the stamper with my nail buffer and then cleaned it with pure acetone)

Here was my first ever successful stamping mani! I used Vapid Lacquer's Optimist and Pessimist as my bases and then reversed the colors to stamp. I then added a little Luxe Lacquers Poppy. Not 1 stamp, but a double stamping mani! Whoot whoot!


My second attempt was a little better, though still a little wonky..haha! This time I did it over Pretty Woman's Champagne Gelogic and Pink Candy polishes, using Vapid Lacquer's Pessimist to stamp with.


I think with a little more practice, I will definitely be able to pop out some great nail art! They have a pretty good selection of stamping plate options, so I'm excited to practice and then order some more!

I do wish the stamper was a tad more squishy. All the stampers I've tried area little hard and I think that's why I have such a hard time with them. This is the squishiest one I've used, but would like squishier. (squishy squishy squishy..haha!)

If you are just getting into stamping I would definitely recommend trying these products out. You can use my 10% off discount code HAWQ10 at checkout!
