I know its fall (almost winter) but I couldn’t resist one last happy summer manicure! The Born Pretty Store kindly sent me some stamping plates to review, including plate BP-19, which I used here to double stamp some awesome leaves!
I have always wanted to do a full manicure with leaves…but they just take too darn long to paint by hand. This plate not only has a full leaf image (which I used as the base for my manicure with a medium green), but also vines with leaves, falling leaves (which I used as a dark green topper), grain, and some awesome spiky leaves! I don’t even know what that is in the center of the plate but I KNOW I want to use it!
I had no trouble picking up the images on this plate…and I wasn’t even using very opaque polish! My greens are closer to jellies than cremes. So, kudos Born Pretty Store! This was my first time trying one of their stamping plates and I have to say I am impressed with both the quality of the plate (it is nicely etched) and the number of images on it. They are also larger than in the old Bundle Monster sets…I had no trouble covering my entire thumbnail (now THAT is a first!).
