Hooray for Friday! I love Fridays. I don’t know why, it’s not like I have grand plans but Friday always feels so happy. Everyone is in a good mood and there are a lot more smiles around. Love Fridays!
It’s no secret that I love stamping and stamping plates are always on my wish list. Recently I went a little crazy and got quite a few new sets. I will be showing them all to you and today I am starting with the first one. The Pueen Make Your Day set. This is such a cute set of plates and I’ve been lusting after it for so long. There were a few ‘eh’s’ but let me show you all about it.
The set comes in this cute little box.
Inside the box is a plate holder with all the plates inside as well as a little card with basic instructions for stamping. I really love that the Pueen sets come with stamping holders. I have bigger ones so I don’t end up using these but they make the world of difference if you don’t have a plate holder. It also means they are all protected during shipping too.
Speaking of protected during shipping, each plate also comes with a blue protective film that needs to be removed before use. Alrighty, let me show you the plates.
Seriously, could those sheep be any cuter?
Thos flowers at the bottom are so gorgeous. There are so many ways you can use that image.
Those 2 sassy ladies on the left and right are stunning. They are fairly big images though and I doubt you’ll be able to use the whole image unless your nails are super super long.
I like the little animals on this plate but I could’ve done without the dots.
I love geometric images and these are all gorgeous. The top right quarter is especially intriguing. I see some double stamping in my future.
I used this plate here and it’s obvious I love the knit image but all of them are gorgeous. This will be a very used plate.
The little conjoined hearts on the right, I die!
These flowers and petals! I love them! My only real issue here is that the images are quite large. So while my nails were very short I could only get a small part of the image and it lost most the petal goodness. That being said, I will definitely try it again with different colours to see if it makes a different on how I felt about it. Once my nails are longer though I will be using these a lot!
I really like the flowers on the right side of this image.
Butterflies on a string. love love love
I love the dresses. They are also big images but the patterns they make are stunning.
This plate was a big selling point for me when I was deciding to buy it (Who am I kidding, I didn’t need any help or excuse) The top and bottom images are gorgeous I have a ton of ideas to use them. Unfortunately they are also quite big so I will have to wait till my nails are longer.
Looooove this one. Especially the flowers on the left.
So 4th of July!
Of course I had to do some nail art using this set. I have a million ideas for everything. I also recently got some stunning polishes so it was a combination of polish and image that I settled on. I will be using this set quite often! Let me show you what I did.
I started with 2 coats of Hean #890 from the I love Hean neon collection I showed you here. When that was completely dry I did a sponged gradient using Hean #890 and Hean #895. I knew the middle where the colours combined would make another colour and I loved the orange / coral mix it created. I then waited for that to dry completely and then stamped using Pueen107 and MoYou stamping polish in black. Topcoated and bob’s your auntie.
What do you think of this stamping plate set? Do you have it? Which is your favourite plate? Also, can we just take a moment to talk about these neons? Seriously, they are gorgeous. It’s the middle of winter and I am a little obsessed. I’ll have to whip them out for summer in a big way.
Thanks for reading,
