Thank you to everyone who joined the Kris Kringle! Jennifer and I would’ve emailed you yesterday!
Anyway, I received a nail stamping plate kit from KkCenterHK not too long ago and I can definitely say that I was really excited to try it out as I had seen many other bloggers use these before in their nail art designs.
Now, the most important thing about this is pretty much to peel the film/wrapping off the plate!! I had no idea that there was even a plastic covering over the plate until I read Elisa ‘s blog tutorial on it. So pretty much, I had tried to stamp these designs on to my nail whilst the plastic was still on and was incredibly frustrated as to why it wasn’t working ?! But yes, it turned out ..it was all due to the the plastic covering and not my lack of talent in the nail department!
I decided to choose this design plate as I’m not very good at doing the tips of my nails neatly..
And if it was just stamping, then it would be much more easier! Although, this method is much much more tedious.
I thought this was pretty good especially for the price KkCenterHK was selling them for.
The only problems I had with it were the fact that polish doesn’t stamp very well – so it becomes an opaque-ish colour? Hence you would always have to choose a strong, thick type of nail polish for this. And also, something that dries quite slowly otherwise the time period between painting, scraping and stamping would have to be very limited!
All in all, I don’t think I would actually purchase this.
It took a lot of time to just continue cleaning the plate, but for those who want a perfect design without the stress of accidentally screwing it up manually – this would definitely be for you! There are billion of other stamping plate designs (like Hello Kitty, flowers, characters etc) listed on their site so go check it out!
Also, I forgot to mention that until the 28th February 2012, if you enter the code “BLGA55ME10″ you will receive 10% discount at KkCenterHK! So definitely go check that out if you can!
