Born Pretty Plate M71 Review.

Today I have my last Born Pretty Store review for you! This time it is for another nail art item, the M71 plate, which comes with a stamp and scraper. 

Usually when I stamp designs on my nails I use a full nail image (like this one) so I played around with the plate a little before deciding on a manicure. All the images stamped well, and the stamp and scraper measured up to the ones I already own.

A lot of people prefer rubber scrapers or credit cards, but I always feel like I get a better scrape with a metal scraper. I'm happy to have another since mine is always a mess. The stamp is a lot different than the one I'm used to using, which is longer and double ended. But this short one is very easy to handle.

Now back to the manicure I decided on...

I didn't want to just stamp onto a solid base color, so after some consideration I started on an ocean-like gradient. I used OPI Ogre the Top Blue and OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue, an then I added a layer of Sinful Colors Hottie. After than I added a very thin coat of Wet n Wild Teal of Fortune. Then I decided to try something new out, and added a few flakes of chunky teal glitter from Julep. After letting all of that dry I stamped the dolphin image from the M71 plate in Sally Hansen Silver Sweep. The final touch was one more thin coat of Teal of Fortune.

And here is a closeup...

This is just one fun option you can get from this plate, which along with the stamp and scraper costs $3.88. And once again here is a 10% off coupon code for you!
