My Very Sweet Mani
I recently ordered an XL Stamper from Ebay and a Q1 Dupe Plate from Ninjapolish and decided today was the day to try them out. This plate is the only one that I currently own with a large image to cover your entire nail so this is my first time even atempting to stamp an image on an entire nail. I used China Glaze's Purple Panic which looks more pink while outside and then purple inside and stamped with Konad in White.
This is the amazingly awesome Q1 Dupe Plate. I am in love with it! It has so many awesome images and works perfectly. You can order it from Ninjapolish for $6.00.
This is the XL Stamper & Scraper Set that I ordered from Ebay. You can order it there for $7.50. I did have a little bit of a problem with this stamper when I got it but haven't had any problems with it since then. It has a silicone stamper and isn't like the rubber from the Konad one, so when it first got here it was super shiny and I kept cleaning it off with acetone and it wasn't picking up the images for me. It took a few times to clean it off then I used a nail file against it twice and I haven't had a problem with that since. Another problem is that the white part was falling out a bit so I just pushed it down a bit as you can see in the picture and it hasn't fell out anymore. I definitely think it is worth it though. I think the silicone actually makes it easier when stamping your nails than the rubber does when you need to roll it back and forth against your nail. Also my Konad stamper isn't big enough to get the whole entire nail image and this does the job perfectly. I also love that it came with these plastic scrapers because I had been scratching my plates up with the metal scraper that I have. I have also tried using a plastic card like a credit card to scrape with but I just didn't care much for that, these are wonderful!
