I really do love the Smoosh technique, it’s so easy to do (if a little messy) and it always works, unlike the cling film (saran wrap) technique, for some reason I seem to mess that up more often than I get it to work!

The stamping image is on plate 14 from Moyou’s Mother Nature collection!

Born Pretty Lace Stamping Plate Review

*Press Sample*

Hello! 🙂

Lace Flowers Leadlight Nail Art

Here is a pretty lace stamping plate that has been sent to me from Born Pretty!

You can find the plate right here Lace Stamping Plate. The first thing I have to mention is the image on the Born Pretty store page is a slightly different plate, so for my review I’m using an image that’s the same on my plate BP-L020 and the one on the website.

There are loads of really lovely images on this plate, a lot of them perfect for leadlighting and reverse stamping.

While I was playing with this plate I noticed that to fit the images on my thumb I had to stretch the image, for the most part it was fine but the the images with more detail ended up looking rather distorted.

Another thing I found, was that I got a much cleaner image pickup by scraping across the plate, so side to side rather than up and down. I have no idea why!

The polishes I used are

  • A England Jane Eyre
  • Illamasqua Load
  • Illamasqua Muse
  • Illamasqua Omen
  • Illamasqua Ouija
  • Illamasqua Prosperity
  • Hit The Bottle Black
  • Seche Vite

This is a really pretty plate, if the images where a couple of mm wider it would be the perfect size!
