I have never heard of the brand ‘Ya Qin Ann’ before and so it was a nice little surprise to receive this unusual stamping plate from Born Pretty Store. It is 6x6cm which is pretty much the same size or roundabouts of a regular round stamping plate.
It has 6 full nail images (although the design size may be a bit too small for those with long nails) and 3 smaller images.It comes in a small square card cover with only the brand name on the front and a sticker showing the plate number.
It comes with the sticky blue cover on both the front and the back.
The plate does not have a cardboard backing on it and the edges do have a slight sharp edge to them so can be a pain when trying to pick it up or hold it.
The images on the plate are cute and look like little doodles, some of them were flowers and I thought it apt to do a spring themed mani with this plate. I used the reverse stamping method to do this nail art and add a bit of colour to the images.
There were no imperfection in the images and they picked up perfectly, even the very small dots and details giving perfectly crisp stamps.
I used a base of Barry M Gelly Sugar Apple, I used Konad White stamping polish then Barry M Blueberry Ice Cream, Barry M Strawberry Ice Cream, Barry M Lemon Ice Cream and Prickly Pear for the colours in the flowers.
For those of you worried about where to store these plates with their different shape, they fit perfectly into the small Born Pretty Store stamping plate holder available here for £3.56, you can see my review of this holder here.
