A few weeks ago I got some new products from Born Pretty Store to try out. Here’s what I got this time: Unicorn stamping plate (id # 39130), Origami stamping plate (id # 39127), Manicure saver claw (id # 32220) and some colored studs (id # 14438).
I have thought about getting a claw like this one for some time, because it looked like it would help not ruin your nail polish while painting and stamping. So, does it really work? Hell yes!! This thing is a life saver (not really though, more like a mani saver) and it’s so helpful when you’re stamping. No more cotton stuck to your wet polish!
Here is a mani I made using the unicorn stamping plate and I love how it turned out! So sparkly and how cute are the unicorns? The stamping plate was really easy to use, the polish was easy to pick up and the designs on the plate are just too cute.
For this spring-y origami design I used the origami stamping plate. I have to be honest, this plate was a little harder to work with. I had a really hard time trying to pick up the polish from one of the patterns (a rose) but after a few failed attempts I tried with another pattern and that worked out better. I don’t know if I just had a bad day or if something’s different with the plate, but eventually I got a finished mani, it just took a little longer than I had planned.
To make this blue polish a little more fun I decided to pair it with some matching studs, and I chose the blue square ones. In the wheel with studs you get stars and squares in six different colors; blue, pink, green, purple, yellow and orange. To place the studs I used a wax pen, and to make them stick I put a little dot of top coat where I wanted them placed. If you want the studs to stay on the nails for more than a day you can use nail glue instead of clear polish/top coat. Studs are a fun and super easy way to make your mani a bit more interesting.
