Stamping Saturday: Ya Qin An stamping plate review

Hi lovelies!

I've been really getting into stamping lately, so when Born Pretty Store contacted me to review some products I made sure I chose a few stamping plates to try. 

Today I've done a some looks using a new to me brand, Ya Qin An. I don't know a great deal about the brand, they only seem to be available via Born Pretty Store. I was immediately drawn to plate Y021 (product #20727) because - poop! But first, something less immature.

I first used each of the crown patterns and the Barbie style head silhouette in the mani above to get a good idea of how the plate felt. Both the detailed crown pattern and the large space Barbie worked really well - the images picked up and transferred well to the nail (though my top coat did drag my polish).

I was initially concerned about how the crown images would stamp as the plate I received had some superficial damage across the top three images. This damage would have had to have been caused during production and the blue film was completely intact and the plate comes within a white cardboard sleeve which was also in good condition.

Fortunately I didn't find the scrapes had any impact, but it might make me wary of the brand in future.

Then I went for the images I was most excited by - the two mini poops and hands flipping the bird! I call this mani "Fuck Mondays". I was really please with how it turned out, the images stamp crisp and clean. Plus, the little middle fingers have nails!

I also used the leafy image from this plate a little while back and was impressed. I probably wouldn't use the rose image - it's a bit too ladylike for me and it seems a little out of place on what is a somewhat quirky plate.

You can grab Ya Qin An plates from www.bornprettystore.com for $3.99, plus you can receive 10% using my code TGBQ10. Shipping is totally free!
