I have two product reviews today - a stamping plate and a stamper from bornprettystore.com! The stamping plate, 春の歌 -09 (Song of Spring) has a few awesome plaid designs and the stamper is a compact clear jelly stamper, that comes with two little scrapers:
I was super excited about this stamper, because I ofter take my nail stuff places to do other people's nails and having a stamper that is compact and with a cap, would certainly make transporting it much easier! The scrapers look decent as well, but unfortunately they are not. They're too sturdy, so I highly recommend these BPS scrapers, that are my all-time favourite, they're super straight and bendy and make all the difference. Now onto the stamper:
For my first manicure I assumed the stamper to be relatively squishy and hence used the 'just press down technique'. This resulted in the above pick-up result. It worked OK for BPS polishes, but for non-cremes, like M Polish "Fresh Perspective" it did not:
This is two coats of Rimmel "Lose your Lingerie" with BPS white stamping polish first and the M Polish over that. The idea was nice, but the execution was sub-obtimal.
So for the next manicure I decided to treat the stamper as a sturdy non-squishy one and rolled it over the plate to pick up the image. This worked much better:
I used 1 coat of this amazing polish I got in Poland, Bell Secretale no. 8, a gorgeous deep blurple, as my base and stamped with BPS silver stamping polish. I sealed it in with SV and later matted it with Etos matte top coat.
I wanted another go at the double stamping and I wanted to test Bell's Blurple stamping capacity, so I created the following:
I started with a base of W7 "Pistachio" and stamped with Ya Qin An mint stamping polish, also from BPS, which stamps wonderfully well. I then double stamped it with the Bell's Blurple and sealed it in with SV.
