Born Pretty Plate Review

Hello Tadpoles,
   Have you heard of Born Pretty? Well, I ordered from their webpage so that I could receive their free Christmas plate (Born Pretty). I decided that I would order several other plates that I fell in love with. 
   I placed my order on December 6, 2012. I decided on 4 stamping plates including the Christmas Santa Design Nail Art Stamp Template-QA19 (free), the Cute Rabbit Cat Animal Design Nail Art Stamp Template S10 ($2.99), the Cute Cow Pig Design Nail Art Stamp Template-QA33 ($2.99) and the Red Lips Design Nail Art Stamp Template-KD16 ($2.99). I paid a total of $11.97 for my plates. $3 of that was for tracking my package. My order was mailed on December 20, 2012 from Singapore using the Singapore Post Registered AirMail. It was issued a tracking number. I received my 4 stamping plates on January 7th. 
   Here are the plates that I received:



  
   All the plates were covered in the protective blue film. I liked that the fronts of the stamping plates were protected from scratches. What I did not like was that the backs of the plates were no covered with a hard film. I did not like that the QA19, KD19, and QA33 plates had sharp corners on them. I was worried about cutting myself on the corners of the plates.
   I sampled 3 plates with Wet-n-Wild- C229C-Ebony Hates Chris (Black) and 1 with Revlon-Top Speed-210-Jelly (Pink) for the lips. The imagines came out clearly.
  
I used two stampers with the samples.


   I found that on S10 that my pink stamper picked up the imagines better. The imagines were more shallow. The pink stamper was firmer than my white stamper. The other imagines on the plates are etched farther into the plates. My white stamper was able to pick the imagines do to it being "squisher". I was very pleased with all the imagines that I received. I fell as in love with the Pigs the most. Which plate do you love?
   Go and check the Born Pretty page and order some cool stamping plates and nail are supplies. Here is your link to some great Nail stamping plates. Born Pretty
 Oh, I am looking so forward to completing a manicure with these plates.

  2. It is good to know that trying different stampers can help if you have issues.

    1. Thank Jim.I found out that the pink stamper had a firmer plastic and you can push harder to pick up the imagines. If the imagines are not etched deep.

    1. Mindy, I am sorry to hear that your plates did not work properly. Did you contact the company and let them know? Did you try to use different stamper and use a different scraper? I have found that trying different angles, pressure have helped me. Which imagine plates did you get?
