Nautical Stamping

  *Product featured provided for review 


Hey Everyone!


Sorry for my absence, I’ve been having some seriously dry skin/cuticle issues since the weather has been changing. I’ve been trying to give my cuticles a break from polish and acetone, but they’re still a bit messed up :( It’s a huge frustration. Also, I have to admit…I resisted for some time, but I caved and downloaded Candy Crush which has been to blame for me not blogging some nights. Heh…oops ;)


Anyways, I managed to step away from Candy Crush long enough to create a nautical mani using Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA5 I received for review.



What I used:

Base Color – OPI Tickle My France-y

Stripes & Anchor – SOPI Opening Night

Ship’s Wheel – Konad Silver

Plate - Born Pretty Store stamping plate QA5


I used my subpar nail art brush (which I previously reviewed here) to freehand stripes and then stamped an anchor image on my ring finger and a ship’s wheel on my index finger.

Overall the stamping plate worked well just like the other Born Pretty Store stamping plates I’ve used. I also liked all of the images on the plate and will be able to find some use for all of them. Born Pretty Store plates are a cheaper alternative at $2.99 compared to more expensive plates like Konad if you’re on a budget and also doesn’t require you to purchase a whole set like Red Angel or Bundle Monster, etc.


As I’ve mentioned before, you can used my discount code “BAL91″ for a 10% discount when ordering from Born Pretty Store and international shipping is always free.

      Thank you! I really liked how it turned out with the nude base rather than the typical white nautical look :)

    I love that mani! I like anything nautical inspired as nude and navy blue is such a good color combo. I actually really like that plate, however what’s w the 2 balls on a string design in the middle? What IS that?? I like the anchors and wheels tho so I guess I really just don’t care. ;) I have not played candy crush but I had to block the app on fb cuz everyone was like sending me requesty things. It’s apparently very popular and fun… maybe I’ll jump on the bandwagon although w the Internet and Pinterest and Instagram and twitter I hardly need another thing to do on my phone!

      Lol weirdo…It’s an eyepatch and an eyeball.
