KKCenterHK Stamping Plate Review-2 Looks

 *Press Sample
Hi everyone, happy Thursday!  It feels good to get closer to Friday.  I made it to the gym for the second day in a row yesterday and I feel good about it.  I did weights and cardio but the most interesting thing to happen was that the lady next to me on the stationary bike was eating peanut m & m's while she was cycling.  I have yet to figure that out!  I mean seriously lady?  You couldn't have finished them before you got to the gym?  

Anyways, today I have another stamping plate review for you, this time from KKCenterHK, which is an online shop with nail art supplies.  I also received a small stamper to go with this stamping plate.  The stamper is small but covered all of my nails.  The thing I really like about it was that it came with a scraper made of plastic.  I had been using an old credit card as a scraper because I had heard the metal ones can scrape the plates.  I really liked having a dedicated scraper to use. 

Above is an image of the plate I chose.  The stamp includes cat stamps, striped stamped, and several full size stamps in some tribal prints and one that looked like a knitted sweater to me.  The plate is item no. NNAIL-SPPQA11 and can be found here.  Below I created two different looks with this plate, one everyday mani and one seasonal mani.

First up is the everyday look I created.  I started with a base of OPI DS Opulence and created black polka dots with Essie Licorice.  I finished off with the top striped stamp which has lines and little swirly circles.  I stamped the silver with Essie No Place Like Chrome.

Below is my seasonal mani which I wanted to look like a glitzy holiday sweater.  Underneath the stamp is a base of OPI Peace & Love & OPI with the blue glitter polish Ulta Indigo-go Girl.  I stamped the sweater pattern on with Essie No Place Like Chrome.

I was very happy with this stamping plate and I think it offers a lot of versatility with the images that it includes.  I can see using this stamp year round to create fun manis.  I had no problems with the images transferring or stamping and was very happy with the quality.  This plate retails for $4.55 and can be found here.  You can receive an additional 10% off with the coupon code "paintthosepiggies".  Have a great day everyone!

  1. There are some really cute patterns on that plate! I especially love your first mani and the way you layered the stamp design over the dots! :)
