I have been lusting after quite a few stamping image plate sets for the longest time. Bundle Monster, Cheeky, Winstonia, Pueen. There are so many and they are all gorgeous. I really love stamping and so far I have only had Essence image plates to play with. I was super happy when my husband recently ordered me the Pueen plates. I knew I would love them. I just wasn’t prepared for how much! I am going to show you the whole set. be warned, this post will be quite photo heavy. I also really struggled to take good photo’s because of the plates being so shiny and reflective. So here we go.
When I ordered there was a promotional offer where the set comes with a little ‘show case’. It is a small leather case with little pockets to hold all the plates. Huge bonus for me. This is what it all looked like when it arrived.
There are 25 plates in this set. Each one comes with a blue film over the image to protect the plate from scratches or damage. This film has to be removed before use. As i mentioned before, I have only used Essence plates before so I only have that to compare it to. The Pueen images are definitely bigger than the Essence ones. Here is a comparison:
The Pueen (left) next to the Essence (right). The obvious difference is that one is round and one is square. Other than that you can’t really see much of a difference. So let’s compare some more.
Length wise, you can see the Pueen stamp is slightly longer than the Essence stamp. Even with the curved, half moon part. It might not seem like much but that little bit can make a huge difference, especially if you have long nails or long nail beds.
Here you can see that the Pueen plate is also wider than the Essence plate. Considering I’ve never had huge problems with the Essence plate sizes but that they just just fit so this is a huge win for me. Each plate is also identified by a number. This set is is identified with PUEEN and the number i.e. PUEEN01 or PUEEN02. I bet you’re dying to see them now right?
That’s it. 25 plates of gorgeousness. I was going to mention my favourites per plate but I just couldn’t narrow it down. I pretty much love them all. Some of them are so detailed and intricate. I love them all. Now the big question is, how well do they work? I took a quick snap with my phone. I tested 4 images from the first 4 plates. I fell in love! They stamp so beautifully and perfectly.
I might have to apologise in advance for the loads of stamping that there will be from now on :P. I know that I definitely need the Pueen ‘Love Elements’ set as well. If you want to see more you can find them here.
Do you like stamping? Would you stamp more if you could? Which image is your favourite? Lay it on me… Have a great weekend! I’m sure you know what I will be doing 😉
Thanks for reading.
I love it so much. They are all beautiful.

Thanks hun. I agree. They are gorgeous! 😀
They all look so beautiful! The ones you tested look amazing, can’t wait to see some more. Yesterday I also got my first set of stamping plates… mine are from bundle monster 🙂 I just need some practice getting the stamp to reach the edges of my nails since my nails are quite curved, but it is so EXCITING 😀
Ahhh Kerry I am so jealous!! The Bundle Monster set will probably be my next buy. Good luck and share some pics please.
Wow! Love the picture with the test stamps! As you well know I haven’t gotten the stamping right yet, but I love how these would cover your whole nail. Awesomesauce.

Thanks hun. You just need a bit more practice and then you will LOVE it!
Aagghhh I want these!!! I love stamping an haven’t done much lately just because it’s hard for me to do it in the summer w a billion fans and AC going, but I seriously love these. I also love that little case! How cute is that!! I have an essence plate and I noticed that when you run your hand over the plate the images are kinda of rough feeling, are the puren plates like that? My bundle monster plates are smoother, as are my cheeky plates, but the red angel ones I have are tough too. I’m just wondering how these compare as far as that goes. I really like the designs on these and I can’t wait to see all your stamped manis!! Stamping is so fun! 🙂

That little case is adorable!! It may or may not have been a huge influence in my choice of which set to buy 😛
I had to go and test my plates as well. Some of my Essence plates are smooth but one or two did feel rough. None of my Pueen ones felt rough like that at all. I love the designs one these too and I so badly want the ‘Love Elements’ set as well. I love stamping!!
Thanks for reading. I am still having major fangirl moments here 😛
Whoops- I meant pueen. My phone just doesn’t want to type that! 🙂

These plates are fantastic! So many designs to choose from and they look great on your nails.

Thanks so much Nicola. I agree, the plates are amazing! I love them so much. There really is something for everything.
I have a nail stamper, but I find it so hard to use! It always sumdges! Do you have any tips?
Prettiful recently posted…Nail Art Stamper… Help me please!
Thanks for your comment. I will email you now with a few tips and ticks. Hope it helps. 🙂
That is a good husband you have there. 😉
I like the little case for them! It’s compact and keeps them organized.
I have some Konad plates, but have never really mastered how to stamp (although I haven’t spent a ton of time on it, either). One day!
Hahaha I know right, He’s a keeper!! 😉
The little case is perfect. I am now looking for something similar but bigger to keep all my plates in.
I love stamping. Definitely worth the time…..one day 😉
