Now you’ve seen the mani let’s take a look at the images from the plate itself. I stamped using the Creative Shop Stamper and the top row of images were slightly too large to fit on the whole of the stamper head – a brilliant thing from my point of view as I can rarely find full pattern images that will cover my falsies (or my naturals when they’re longer). The top row images are a whopping 2.8 cm x 3 cm. The lower rows are 1.7 cm x 2.3 cm. With a thumb nail that measures 2.1 cm across the bottom rows of images will be too small even for my naturals but I’m sure with some creative thinking I can find a way of using them.
You can (hopefully) see that the coverage on the top row of images was a little sketchy. I found it quite difficult to get the polish to stay in the etching on the plate when I scraped. By the final image of the four I was getting a little better at it and had discovered that if I scraped in multiple directions without removing the excess polish from the scraper then the image covered better. The bottom rows of images were much easier to work with so I suspect it’s the nature of the image itself rather than the plate as a whole. I know I’ve had a similar problem with another plate in my arsenal that also relied heavily on these types of lines.
If you fancy getting yourself plate BPL-027 you can find it at Born Pretty Store priced £3.91 (US $5.99). I must admit that I find it a little pricey compared to a lot of other plates coming out of that part of the world (I’ve managed to get plates for as little as 22p before and similar sized plates from 58p) but it does work out cheaper than the likes of MoYou and Messy Mansion. If you do order, don’t forget to use code BPL91 to get 10% off your order.
