Born Pretty m-59 stamping plate. I find this plate, consisting of cute bows, hearts and snow flakes very versatile, probably because it has some of my favourite images. It's round and the same size as regular Konad or Bundle Monster plates (unlike the m71 which is the only other Born Pretty plate I've tried).
As you'll probably know from my previous review, I have had good experiences with Born Pretty stamping plates although I have purposely chosen small picture plates as opposed to full nail plates to avoid problems with image size and full nail coverage, etc.
The images are well engraved and detailed, thus transfer with ease
onto the nail. This plate retails for $2.99 and I would definitely
recommend if you are looking for a cheaper alternative to Konad. To

The base colour for this mani is OPI I Don't Give A Rotterdam
which I received in a swap. This grey toned muted periwinkle packed
with silver glass fleck shimmer was my favourite colour from the Holland
Collection. For some reason it looks much more grey'ish than blue on me
so I shall have to use 3 coats next time.
I used the polka dot image on the plate and kept with the theme on the remaining nails too. To keep the mani quite soft and subdued, I chose a complementing silver polish - Barry M Silver Foil. I liked the final result of contrasting feminine and masculine qualities - bows and polka dots yet they look boyish and muted!
