Review: N.Nail Stamping Plate B65

Hi everyone!

Today I'm going to review a stamping plate I received from KKCenterHk, an online store based in Hong Kong that sells beauty supplies. I have been on a foreign nail polish kick lately so I'm really excited to be able to bring you all this post, since they also sell a lot of brands that are unknown to me and have some exciting polishes available (like magnetic and glow in the dark ones!).

I have also been wanting to try stamping more often, but I don't have access to many full nail designs (which I generally prefer). In short, this was an awesome opportunity.

In my package from KKCenterHk, I received these two items:
 An N.Nail Scraper and stamper set (JR1055)

And the stamping plate! This is the N.Nail B65 plate (SPPMB65).

I used the center image for my stamping adventure!

I used China Glaze's Lemon Fizz for the base, and Cult Nails' Vicious for the stamp. Sorry about the smudging, I was a little heavy handed putting the top coat on and it managed to smear some of the design. (Doh!)

- I had no difficulty using the stamping plate. The images I tried came out very well. This random broken up/messed up parts of the images are more or less my fault (for being a newbie at stamping).
- Images on the plate are very cute -I can actually see myself using this plate fairly often. I also didn't really think I'd like this image from the product picture on the website, but it's actrually quite cute. from far away this design reminds me of lace on my nails.

-The stamper itself is kind of small, but it is usable. I generally prefer longer handles because it just feels like I have a better grip on things, although my positioning still needs some work anyhow. :P
-The scraper. I found the blade too short. it's around 2-3mm from tip to plastic handle, so my excess polish usually ended up getting stuck on the lower bit of the handle and was really hard to clean from the little ledge between the blade and the holder. After the first few tries, I ended up going back to using one of my old cards to scrape away the excess polish.

To conclude, I found the quality of the stamping plate to be very good (in my opinion). I'm not sure if $4.74 USD/plate is a decent price (in comparison to other brands) because of my inexperience with stamping plates in general, but I think I wouldn't hesitate to purchase more of these plates (and possibly some other goodies) from this store.

You can purchase this stamping plate and many other beauty items from the KKCenterHk online store.

Thanks for reading!! :D
