Uber Chic Roses & Review

Hi NaiLovelies!

My set of stamping plates by Uber Chic finally arrived this week and I was so excited to try them out.  I ordered them just over two weeks ago and delivery of the plates took longer than I had anticipated so needless to say, I was chomping at the bit to get my hands on these stunning plates!

Uber Chic Stamping Plates - Collection 1

 I chose Collection 1 as it has a lovely selection of unique floral and geometric images.  I was initially drawn the the plate in the centre of my photograph above as I think I will be able to create some rather pretty decals using these images.   

I chose the rose image on the centre plate to create this manicure.  After removing the holographic gradient manicure, I stamped the image of the rose over my existing base of OPI Gelcolor Peace&Love&OPI using my Creative Stamper.

The etching of the image used was great and picked up perfectly each time resulting in crisp lines and bold transfer of the image.  I used Konad Special Polish in black for the stamping.  

Unfortunately, I was a quite disappointed to discover that the images on the plate were smaller than I thought.  My nail beds are pretty long and fairly wide so I struggle to get MoYou XL images to fit my nails when they have length to them.  To work around this issue I had to stretch the images which is a shame as it adds an extra element of faff to creating a manicure which I am not always in the mood for.  

At this moment in time, I am undecided on whether I will be keeping or selling these beautifully designed Uber Chic plates on....

Ciao 4 Now
