Glitter gradient and STAMPING :O (plus a review)

Hi all :)

I'm pretty late with this, but I'm even more busy than before! This week our fieldwork began and we've had so much to do! Today I've been able to relax a bit and therefore finally got around to get this post together..

Some weeks ago I recieved a stamping set from Born Pretty Store to review =D  Here it is:

I've never tried stamping before, I've seen it as a kind of 'cheating' but I've been more and more curious as to how it works, so I finally gave in and chose to try it out! And I'm hooked now! haha..

Well I had visitors when I recieved the package.. Wanted to give it just a quick try and then play with them later.. But couldn't get it to work :/ Well, I learned an important lesson: Remember to take off the plastic sheeting! lol.. haha..

Here's a stamp on paper.. Remember this is my very first try.. I couldn't get every pattern to transfer complete, and I pretty sure it's because it requires practice!

It was quite fun trying.. And easier on paper than on the nails.. Here's my first mani with stamping - not at all the best, but I enjoyed it:

My first mani ever feat. stamping =D

And here's the base colors:

And the glitter gradient..

And the end result once again

The involved in this mani:
Ask if you wanna know any names!

I'm really hooked on those stamping plates! If I only had some time to practice!

I feel that the plates are pretty sturdy.. I used a used plastic card instead of the scraper, because I've heard that was best. And I felt the scraper could do damage to the plates - so I just left it alone :p

So I can only recommend these =D I need some full image stamping plates now! haha..

This kit is $4.85 at and they always have free shipping! Don't forget to get 10% off by using this code: SKEJ61

Have you tried stamping? Which plates would you recommend for full nail images? (Or whatever it's called :p)

Have fun and take care =)

  • The stamping kit was sent to me for review. The review is my honest opinion.


  1. Awesome! I love how you stamped them all out on the paper first. I have a few plates, but rarely use them. I've never thought to swatch them on paper before!

    Love it with just the glitter gradient too, looks awesome!

  2. Thanks :) Well I thougt it was a good way to start out :p haha..

  3. Great job with the gradient underneath! I have konad plates and bundlemonster plates, and I like them equally well, but bundlemonster is MUCH more affordable, and their full nail plates are great-some of the tip plates match the full nail ones, which is cool.

  4. Yay thanks :) I've tried ordering some bundle monster plates, butn either on amazon nor ebay do they ship to Denmark :/ But I got my hands on some faux kind of big plate and am just waiting for it to arrive now :D
