Review: UberChic Beauty Love & Marriage 02 plate (plus sample mani!)

(Press sample; affiliate links)

Hello!

That's right, love is in the air, and to celebrate, we're gonna take a look at UberChic Beauty's new Love & Marriage 02 plate!

You know I made a video review for the plate:




And let's take a look at some still shots:

I love the way UberChic captures both elegant images and whimsical images--but without going over-the-top cute. So you can do light-hearted manis or more sophisticated manis depending on your mood. I also love the way she makes sure you have single images that match the full-nail images, so you can mix and match for easy creativity in your art.

My personal favorite images here? The cabbage rose spray, the love birds, the heart candies, the swirly hearts, and my #1 favorite--that hedgehog. Check out what I did with that image here.

Hey, how  big are those images? Well, there are a variety of sizes, so let's take a look next to a ruler:

And most important of all, how do they stamp? Pretty darn well. Take a look at my sample swatches:






For my sample mani, I started with a base of Zoya April, a soft neutral creme with a hint of peach. I made a decal with the candy hearts image; I stamped with Barry M Gold Foil and filled in with Sally Hansen Ablazing, Snappy Sorbet, and Lively Lilac. Then I stamped the other nails with the stringed-hearts image, using Snappy Sorbet and Lively Lilac:

I love how flirty and feminine this is without screaming pink pink pink red pink...A little bit untraditional, but still soft and sweet.

You can find UberChic Beauty's Love & Marriage 02 plate here; a little birdy told me that they also have see-through stampers now, too! You can also follow them for updates on the UberChic Beauty Facebook page.


Happy stamping,
M.

  7. Your videos are always so entertaining. :)
    What a lovely plate. Loads of beautiful images (those candy hearts with sayings about polish love - ha! :)), but omg those bikes!! ADORE that image (and adore my bike). (I used to have this really cool bike bell that said "I ♥ my bike" (me and everyone else, I know)) I almost need this plate for that image alone.
