Anyway today I want to share with you a manicure I created using the Hello Kitty and Floral Stamping Nail Art Kit from Born Pretty store which they kindly sent to me for review. I'm sure most of you guys have heard of the Born Pretty Store and may have even made purchases from there yourself but in case you haven't a clue, they are an online store that sell a huge selection of nail art supplies. They have polishes, stamping plates, nail decorations, tools and so much more.
A couple of months ago I expressed an interest in trying my hand at stamping but had no idea where to start. Thankfully the Hello Kitty and Floral Stamping Nail Art Kit contains everything you need to get started: two plates, three polishes (white, black and red), a stamper and a scraper.
The main attraction of this kit is the Hello Kitty image on one of the plates so I just had to create a mani using it. Unfortunately the white polish I wanted to use leaked in transit so for this mani I have just used a gold foil polish by Barry M.
What do you think?Do you think it was a little ambitious for my first stamping mani? It probably was because I made a lot of mistakes and had to start again so many times but that was because of me and not the tools. The scraper, stamper and plate were absolutely perfect, I was just either really slow or pressed too hard whilst scraping. And this was after I spent ages trying to figure out why my image wasn't transferring to the stamper and then realising I hadn't taken the protective plastic film off the plate! Yes I can hear you laughing but it wasn't even noticeable I tell ya!
I have nothing to compare this kit to but my first impressions of it are very good. Everything in the kit works and contains everything you need if you're a beginner like me. The two plates that come with the kits are a little sharp around the edges but apart from that they're great and most importantly of all work. There are lots of pretty floral designs which I will use for a full mani soon but I have tested to see if they transfer fully and they do. The plastic scraper and stamper unsurprisingly are compatible with acetone so can be wiped clean without them melting LOL. You know what I mean.
