Hot Off The Stamping Press: New Born Pretty Store Nail Art Stamping Plates!

Hiya stamp champs,

We are literally drowning in new plate releases these days right? It's insane! All I can say is batten down the hatches darlings because a flash flood warning is in effect.  So you know I've had my share of problems with the Born Pretty Store plate releases.  Often I cannot tell what is going on or afterward find out some information that was left out.  This time I'm pretty certain I have the facts for Black Friday's release.  If you follow me on Instagram you'd know I just  received my order of BPS plates - my original and then my 2nd follow up order.  I'd asked BPS to send me the revamped BP01-10 plates so that I could post a comprehensive comparison and review, but I don't have those.  I'm thinking about just going ahead and reviewing what I've got at least the 2nd release of the BP plates and getting that up so my followers can have some reference upon which to judge the quality of these plates.  If you're interested in that let me know in the comments below otherwise I'm gonna dive right in because these plates are epic level!

Yup it's that time again! May I suggest if you missed out on obtaining the BP01-10 plates that launched with the new plates that this would be a good time to pick them up. For 24 hours on the 28th these plates will be on sale.  Unfortunately the site has conflicting info one banner (above) has plates listed for 0.99 cents and another for $1.40 (small round plates) and $3.99 (large rectangular plates).  I have no idea which one is accurate, but I'm hoping it's the 0.99 cent one as they have been sold for historically.  Let's take a closer look at the plates...

Wow on first glance things are looking REAL good!  I'm a bit shocked with the speed at which Born Pretty is releasing plates but they are smart for capitalizing on a engaged audience and keeping the good stuff coming!

We've got breast cancer awareness style remembers and imagery, The Lamborghini emblem? Gorgeous abstracts mixed with florals and the Keep Calm and.... I do believe the polish image is part of the new Bundle Monster CYO 2014 set images as well.  I wish it had said keep calm and stamp on ;)

Peacock feathers, Egypt and abstracts, an anime character I can't put my finger on, and the sea. Random.  My favorite plate here is the nautical one.  Truly unique and gorgeous images!

I love these last two plates! Both are a breath of fresh air - breathe it in LOL!

So now BPS is also designing larger landscape plates.  I'm intrigued and excited except...does the image in the lower right hand corner look familiar? That's because it is - a dupe of the oh so popular Apipila image seen across at least 2 other brands and now a 3rd.  I swear this must be one of those stock images because I see it so much :/

There's a lovely mix of imagery here   I see some kaleidoscope style images mixed with EdM style abstracts.  In short both plates are winning for me

More kaleidoscopes and abstracts which I love.  I wish that the houndstooth wasn't there but I think I might be the only one in the world that is oversaturated on these images along with mustaches.  I own an entire plate from MoYou dedicated to mustaches I feel like I don't need anymore...I know utterly selfish but....

I love the top plate though some images feel familiar here to some abstracts from my Loja BBF plates.  The bottom plate entire top row reminds me of the recently released plates from Marinane's Nails...Maybe these are more stock images I don't know but they are very similar if not exact replicas. However the two bottoms rows are this plates saving grace.  I love all the florals there.

Finally another round of Seckill.  One second one cent at the announced time and date listed on the website.  It took me a really long time to figure out seckill because BPS never really explained it clearly the first time they did it.  I didn't really understand it the first few times, Hopefully this time I can actually get a few 0.01 cent bargains but we'll see...

So what do you think? I know you all will be there for the sales regardless because my BPS posts always are extremely popular and I can tell the store has a lot of fans despite a few snafus.  I think they are doing a great job launching their own line of plates and of course I am looking forward to this upcoming sale.  Also if you are going to buy full priced items use my code DMB10 to save 10% off your order! :) Do let me know again if you'd like me to get on with the review of the plates I do have on hand and happy hunting stamp champs...


  1. Wow those plates.... I'll put reminder on my phone and order those hahahah

  2. What is exactly Seckill? Does it mean that you have only one second to click on the item to buy it?

  3. Do we have any idea of the sizes of the images on the rectangular plates?

  4. Nope or I would have posted it. I'm sure by now though having learn their lesson with the smaller plates fiasco with the first release we can expect much larger images at least 1.5 x 2.0cm for these though you can always email BPS and inquire.

  5. Yup you pretty much got it. I think you have more than one second but given the limited number of items for each plate or whatever offered likely one or two seconds will be all you have to click an item before it sells out.

  6. They posted the size of the plates and of the designs (the landscape ones) on the description box of the set. They are going to be 12.5 x 6.5 cm and the images are 15 x 22 mm (1.5 x 2.2 cm). If a chart I just saw is correct, the landscape ones are the same size, maybe a mm bigger, that the MoYou London XL plates. The images, I mean.

  7. Thanks Lizzie these weren't posted earlier when I wrote this post :) Also I never really trust what they post on the website because the last time with the original BPS 01-10 they posted sizes that were larger than the actual images. I'm hoping they are the sizes listed but I'll be waiting for my plates to come first to be certain ;)
