Born Pretty Store recently sent me two Qgirl plates to try out; I've never heard of this brand before, and I'm always down to try something new.
I did a video discussing the plates and testing them out:
I love the packaging that these plates come in; they have square holders, but check out what the holders can do:
Inside the plate is nestled into an insert which prevents it from slipping out until you pull the entire insert out--and there is a hole at the top so you can store these on a ring if you want to!
Let's take a look out of the passage and with the blue film off:
I love the soft waves on this, plus the texture of the net-like image and the weave. And the flower doodles remind me of the coloring books that are so hot right now.
I love how all the geometrics on this plate touch one another so you can take your image from overlapping areas if you want to. And the flower things remind me a little of shamrocks...
So how did they stamp? Pretty darn well:
I didn't have any issues with transfer or crisp lines--excellent stamping.
For my sample mani, I wanted to do something with those 'shamrocks' for St. Patrick's day...I started with a lovely green glitter holo, Potion Polish Mistletoe Smooches:

And then I added a few shamrocks with Barry M Gold Foil effects:
I love this for a fast St. Patrick's day look--if you're going out tonight, you've still got time to rock this. And that green is so hololicious, I can't stop drooling!
You can find the Qgirl-041 here, and Qgirl-046 here. And you can get 10% off your order with my code:
