Review: Cheeky Jumbo plate 2

(Purchased by me; affiliate links)

Hello!

Hold on to your hats and your seats, today we're going for a tropical vacation! That's right, it's time for the second of the 10 Cheeky jumbo plates I recently bought: Cheeky Jumbo plate 2, filled with images that will whisk you away to tropical shores, or at least tropical drinks. ;-)

As usual, here is my video filled with that special brand of geekiness that only I'm stupid enough to actually record and put on air:





Also, if you missed my post about Cheeky jumbo plate 1, along with my general review of the entire set, you can find it by clicking here. :)

Okay, on to the images from jumbo plate 2! Like last time, I have overlapped the images in the pictures in some places, but there are no duplicate images on the plates. :)


Didn't realize how streaky this was! I'll replace it asap; in the meantime at least you can see the images. >.<


I love that airplane, and that cocktail glass could be used for soooo many things...:)

Those sunglasses are just too cute for words

Love that airplane (I guess I have a thing for airplanes!)

I think those are ice cubes with citrus slices

That palm tree top middle, I didn't think it was going to be cute but when I tried it out, so adorable!

I love those moths/butterflies and that church

Loving the ferns, and I always love seashells

Tropical flowers...ahhhhh, so pretty...

I love that middle bottom flowered vine image

No idea what that top right image is, but it reminds me of when the guy in front of you on the plane puts his seat all the way back and you're all smooshed with almost no space between you (I'm having flashbacks...)

Can I use that image if I just pretend to go to Bali?

And of course, here is the comparison with a standard Konad plate, so you can get a feel for size; if you already have a Cheeky jumbo plate from their alphabet series, these are the same size as those images. As you can see, these are a little bigger than Konad, but not too much bigger:


Cheeky jumbo 2 vs. Konad

I personally think there are some adorable images here, although I'm not much of a tropical traveler--I think there is a lot of versatility for most of the images. I did several tests of the images (you can see the stamped images in the video if you're interested), and the plates stamp just fine--fine lines and bigger areas all stamp well, so there's no need to worry about whether or not you'll be able to get decent images from these plates. I think the only issue is whether or not you like the images, and for the price I don't think you even need to love half of the images to make it worthwhile. At the time of write-up, these plates are going for $9.49 each on Amazon, less if you buy them in bundles. I've seen the small plates with only five images go for nearly that much sometimes, and jumbo plates often go for $20-25, so these are definitely very competitive with respect to price. :)

As always, thanks for reading! If you have any questions about these plates, definitely let me know.  :)

Peace and love,
M.

    1. Where are you? I bet you could join a swap group and arrange a swap with someone for it, plenty of people want polishes from overseas. :)
