Before & After: Frenzy Polish Seafoam + UberChic Beauty Little Bitty Icons

(Press sample)

Hello!

I've been showing you all of the new UberChic Beauty mini plates, and today we're gonna take a look at the Little Bitty Icons plate...

This plate is included in my video of four of the plates, here:




Let's take a closer look...This plate was really difficult to photograph because the images are so small, suddenly the camera starts seeing surface scratches that I couldn't even see with the naked eye, so I'm going to start you off with UCB's professional shot:





And here are my far more tragic shots:






The original concept for the plate was for lil' nail fanatics who wanted their nails to look all pretty and grown up. But it quickly became apparent that this plate is also good for adults who have small nails, or who just want little accents here an there (like on the edges of a French manicure). I also think these are great for little collages or for building scenes.


On with the sample manicure! I mention in the video that one thing that jumped out at me is how many cool beach-themed images there are on this plate, so I had to do a little stylized beach mani for you.


I started with Frenzy Polish Seafoam, which is a gorgeous minty-seafoamy-golden textured glitter that really does make me think of the foamy ocean water on the sand of a beach; this is two coats without topcoat, excellent formula:

I did a quick gradient with Zoya Godiva (another textured glitter) on the tips, then stamped the images with Barry M Cotton:

If that isn't a fun, cute mani for your day at the beach, I don't know what is--and the best part is your little one's nail can match yours with no hassle over size.


You can find this plate in UberChic Beauty's store, and don't forget to follow them on Facebook and Instagram!


Happy stamping,

  1. A perfect sand and surf gradient! Love the colors. The itty bittys are adorable! A question about stamping multiple images...I know for layering stamps you should top coat in between but for these individual images did you top coat between them? Thank you...

    1. Sorry for the late reply! I did not use topcoat between them, but I would have if I wanted them to appear slightly off-set in terms of depth. :)
