Here is part 2 of my review of the new MASH stamping plates...First I'll talk about stamping with them, and then I'll show you some stamped images. If you want to see all of the images on each plate, you can see them in the first half of my review by clicking here. I also have a video showing and discussing them:
Looking at the plates, they seem to have detailed images, and seem to be of top quality, so I was expecting a lot when I began to stamp with them. I wasn't disappointed! I think that all plates take a little getting used to--for example, I had to learn to scrape a little more gently than I was used to with the large Cheeky image plates--but the learning curve on these is very small. From the first attempt to stamp with these plates, I had almost no problems. When I did have a problem, it was because I scraped too gently, and once I started making sure to scrape enough, all was well. In most cases, the first time I tried to stamp with an image, it was perfect, or near perfect; when I adjusted, the second time was manicure-worthy. I note below which attempt you are looking at, so you know these images are not atypical results after hours of practice until I got them just right!
I used Konad stamping polishes for all of these, either in black, red, or green-gold. All of the images have Seche Vite topcoat unless noted. The details on the images transfer well, and the designs are very crisp. Here are some examples; I wasn't too worried about my base being perfect, perfect clean up, or perfect positioning, I just wanted to get good contrast of the stamped images:
So there you have it. The quality of these is very good; the images are sharp and detailed. It was not a struggle at all to get good images. I was very pleased all around, and I highly recommend picking up these plates. If anyone would like to see a particular image from a plate stamped, let me know and I'll be happy to do it. :) I'll be posting some manicures I've done with these plates over the next few days, as well.
You can get more information about these plates and you can order them here. They are currently selling for $12.99, which is an INCREDIBLE price for a set of such good quality, with original images.
Thanks for reading, and please let me see what you do with them if you get them!! :)
