Today I have a review of another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to share with you. This one is plate 05. It has a full-plate image consisting of some type of flower surrounded by leaves. As usual, I have created two separate nail art looks to show you a couple of the possibilities with this plate. In the first look, I concentrated on the leafy portions of the plate. I started with a base of Supermoon Lacquer And You’ll Be a Goner, then stamped with Born Pretty Store stamping polish #9 and plate 05. I made sure to selectively use the portions of the plate with the leaves to get the look I wanted. I had also considered stamping the leaves in white or in pink, but I’m glad I went with the blue in the end. I think the colours go well together and even though the leaves look quite abstract, it creates a very pretty effect. As to the quality of the plate itself, I think the stamping pretty much speaks for itself here – you can see that the images have transferred perfectly. This was my first time using the plate and I had no trouble with it. As I mentioned in my review of the first plate from this set, I got this plate as a part of a set of 5. If you like all 5, it is more economical to get the set, but they are also available individually.For my second look, I decided to try out some leadlighting with the more floral parts of the plate. Unlike my previous leadlighting attempts, where I used a silver base, I decided to try a white base using Sinful Colors Snow Me White. I then stamped, selectively using the floral portions of plate 05.I coloured in the images using OPI Primarily Yellow, Chromatic Orange, Pen & Pink, Purple Perspective, and Turquoise Aesthetic. I really enjoy using the colour paints for leadlighting, but I think I need some more jelly polishes to use for this too! I just don’t have enough colour scheme options. Fortunately these five do work really well together and they are very vibrant. Overall, I like this plate a lot even though I don’t think it has as many options as many of the other plates. What do you think of the two looks?
