I know, I know, it's been a while since I wrote a blog post, but it's summer and I've been taking it easy. Plus, got a Kindle and basically, I haven't lifted my face from it since :)
I do, however, have a treat for you :) BornPrettyStore was kind enough to send me some goodies for review, and I'm sure you'll love them as much as I did.
First up, a square stamper with 5 different colour stamping heads.
This is a 1.6x2.6 cm sized stamper, the stamping heads are squishy and a little sticky, which, in my book, is a good thing, it makes transferring the images from stamping plates easier. The surface of the heads is quite glossy, but that didn't seem to affect image transfer. Let me show you:
See, all clear! I did take my buffer file and gently filed the glossy finish off of heads to see if it will be better, and it was by just a little. However, my black polish I currently use for stamping reacted much better to primed stamping head.
I especially love the red stamping head, all polishes just look so crisp with it and it's quite easy to aline the image to your nail.
All in all, I like this stamper, and I think it's a bargain: you basically get 5 stampers for 5.65 USD.

Next up, stamping polish. I chose a nice green stamping polish with gold sparks, and I just love it!
It transfers very well, it is a little thicker than normal polish since it's for stamping, but the color is just gorgeous! Look!
Can you see how well it's visible on black polish? I love it! The only downside? It's 6 ml, I really hope BornPrettyStore will start selling it in a bigger bottle :) Also, the might still be some gold shimer left on your hands after cleaning up after stamping, but it's nothing a little soap and water won't fix. :)

I also chose two stamping plates, one round with feathers and and a big square one with lace. They are both very well etched and the images transfer with no problem.
I especially love how this stamping polish looks over white base, it's almost teal, and still sparkly :)
This plate is gorgeous, and I recommend it with all my heart!

I am really happy with these products, and will be using them a lot, especially the stamping polish.
