Yes I'm a latecomer to nail plating but after drooling over all these beautiful bloggers' nails I caved in and put in my first order to Bornprettystore.com. I purchased the 16 piece stamp set ($18.48) and 3 stamper/scraper sets ($3.03 a piece) for a whopping total of $29.40 including Airmail with tracking from Singapore. (You can opt for free shipping but I'd rather get tracking for just a few bucks.)
My package arrived in 12 days which is quicker than a lot of eBay stuff I get from Asia! And since Konad nail plates usually go for $7 a piece, these are definitely a STEAL.
It took a couple of tries to get the hang of the stamping part -- it's not as easy as the video tutorials make it seem -- well not for me anyways! I guess it would help if I bought some of the special stamping polishes that are offered at both Konad and Bornprettystore.com -- but any thicker polish should suffice.
Here's what I used:
GNP French Manicure (White)
Color Club "Sultry" (Gold Glitter)
Color Club "Uptown Girl" (Mauvey Lavender)
Essie "Guchi Muchi Puchi" (Pastel Pink)
Orly Base and Top coats (not pictured)
And this is what I came up with -- please excuse the disastrously crispy cuticles and remember this is my first attempt! I will definitely have to work on smoother nail polish application.
