Review: Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA25

Hi!

That's a long time ago... I don't know why exactly, but I just felt not like blogging lately...

But here I am with a nail stamping post, yeeeyy! Also long, long time ago since I posted about stamping!

I've bought a lot of nailplates from Born Pretty Store lately, and I tested one out recently...

My zebra nails

QA25, I believe it stands for Quilty Addition, is a plate with 5 animalprint designs.
This is one of the plates I recently bought. What I didn't noticed, was that these 5 images are a bit smaller then the full nail images on the other QA-plates which I already own. 

Ah well... There's only one solution to make them fit my nails: cut them! SHORT!

What I did:
♥ 1 layer of my favorite basecoat: Orly Nailtrition
♥ 2 coats of OPI Bride's Bouquet
♥ 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat
♥ Black no brand-polish from "Action" + QA25 zebra design
♥ 1 coat of Seche Vite topcoat



As you can see on the picture above, the design is -despite the fact that I cut my nails real short- still too little/narrow to fit my thumb :(


The polish that I used is actually no stamping polish, but it is opaque enough to stamp with.
Unfortunately the design is not as crisp as I expected it to be, but the polish was worth trying :)

Next time I'll try a better polish to stamp with.

I'm not really used to designs that are that obvious as this is, so I didn't wore this manicure very long...

This stampingplate is available at Born Pretty Store.com for $2,99 but it is currently on sale for $1,99.

Do you already have some of the QA-plates in your stash?

Thanks for watching!

OPI You're Such A Budapest + Born Pretty Store Glitter Stars

Hi!

The last couple of days I've been wearing a polish from the Europe Collection from OPI:

You're Such A Budapest
You're Such A Budapest is a lilac periwinkle shade. At first I planned on using it when my hands got a little bit more tanned, but I just couldn't wait, so I used it right away :)

Only thing is... I can't remember if I put on two or three coats...


Then, a couple of days later, my order from Born Pretty Store arrived :)
I ordered some falsh lashes and some glitter star stickers in silver:



You'll get 12 sheets for only $5,99! They adhere perfectly and with a decent coat of topcoat over it, they stayed on for more than 8 days! Great quality it is... The only downside is that they don't remove very well. 
I use lint free nailwipes and had to use much pressure and nailpolish remover to get the stickers off.
Nevertheless are they cute and worth it!







I liked this manicure that much that I wore it for over a week.

My nailroutine is:
♥ Orly Nailtrition (1 coat)
♥ Orly Bonder (1 coat)
♥ OPI You're Such A Budapest (2 of 3 coats)
♥ INM Out The Door (1 coat, and later after applying the stickers another coat on ringfingers and thumb)


How long do you wear your manicure most of the time?

Thanks for watching!

Shopping: OPI, China Glaze, Revlon, Essence, Catrice, BornPrettyStore, Guppy... and more!

Hi girls!

Hope you're doing ok? Fortunately I'm feeling better and getting back to work tomorrow...

Today I would like to show you some of the stuff I've bought this month.

Ready?


From Essence 2 bottles of nailpolish remover in Strawberry and Coconut scent (always better than the real smell :) )


From BornPrettyStore two fauxnad Konad plates, numbers m66 and m76...

BornPrettyStore m66

BornPrettyStore m76
I haven't tried their plates out yet, but I've read some good reviews about them. I compared them a bit with the real Konad plates and I think they look pretty much the same.
These plates were on sale for $1,55!


Nothing special, just two pump bottles which I like to use for my removers. Also from BornPrettyStore.


From Catrice 3 polishes from left to right: Poison Me, Poison You!, After Eight and Dirty Berry.


From Essence 2 more bottles of Nail Art Sealing Topcoat, (a back up bottle of) Special Effect Topper Circus Confetti, Special Effect Topper Hello Holo and From BornPrettyStore some apple scented nailpolish remover wipes (which I don't like... The scent is ok, but they just don't do the job well enough!)


From Essence 7 Colour & Go polishes (I forgot photographing one!) from left to right:

66 Shiny Godness
33 Just In Case
72 Time For Romance
77 In Style
55 Let's Get Lost
78 Blue Addicted
(85 Galactic Black, not on the pictures)


I'm not sure, but I think Catrice's After Eight and Essence In Style look a bit the same... Anyone know if they do irl?


From OPI 3 polishes from left to right: Moon Over Mumbai, My Private Jet (brownish), Royal Rajah Ruby.


I know there are many girls who find OPI is a bit overrated and highly overpriced, but I think their polishes are great. They have such nice collections and colours! I'm willing to pay that price anyway :)


From Guppy (or CUDDV, whatever the name is) 2 Sanding Fruit Extract polishes, in numbers 14 and 16.
They are unbelievable large! I don't think I've had such large bottles (16 ml!) before.
I saw number 17 on Nihrida's blog and got immediately interested in the finish of this polish. Had to try it myself! :)


And 4 other polishes. From left to right: H&M Moody Model, Revlon 092 Blue Lagoon, China Glaze Crackle Glaze Metallic in Tarnished Gold, en last but not least a very neon pink crackle polish from Laushine (again from BornPrettyStore).


And two small brushes from BornPrettyStore which I'm going to use as eyeliner brushes.

That was about it...

See anything you like? Want to see swatches? Let me know...


Goodnight!

Smokey Grey Black Matte + silver Zebra...

Hi!

You know... I get bored easily, so after only 2 days of wearing BK Smokey Grey Black Matte I got bored and wanted to spice it up a bit. So with Stargazer Chrome 232 I stamped the Zebra design of Konad's M57 plate on it:

Smokey Grey Black matte with a bit of silver shimmer

Stamping was a bit hard... I still don't know if it has to do with the Stargazer Chrome polish, or maybe the rough underground of the matte polish... I really don't know... Do you?



I think I stamped each nail twice, not because of the length of my nails (so you need to double stamp), no... Because the imaged didn't transfer well from the stamper to my nails! I think it has something to do with the matte polish that didn't adhere well, or something.


So I stamped about 20 nails, and really had it with it at the end, but hey... I think the result is worth it! :)


Have some of you ever used Stargazer Chrome 232 for stamping? Then maybe you know if China Glaze Millenium is better then Stargazer??

Please let me know, because this was worth it, but it took so much time!!

Have a great weekend!
