Review: UberChic Beauty Party Time plate (+ mani featuring Girly Bits Polishes!)

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


Today I have another new UberChic Beauty plate to share with with--their new Party Time plate! Here's the video I did with suggestions for using it:




Let's take a look at the plate:

Plate size: 9.5 cm x 14 cm
Full-nail image size: 17 mm x 21 mm (5/8th of an inch x 6/8ths of an inch) 


What I love about this plate: I love that this isn't just a birthday plate, you can use it for any type of celebration, including weddings, anniversaries, New Year's, bachelorette parties, mardi gras, whatever, there are little touches on here to help you customize for whatever. I also love the layering images she's putting on her plates more an more, especially the ribbons, those heart-shaped balloons, and the cupcake! That screams out for a pop-art mani to me.


As for the other images on the plate, here are two shots with a ruler to help you get a feel for how big those are:




And how does it stamp? Check out these fine lines stamped with a clear stamper:




Pretty impressive! Also, if you're wondering how to get the layering images to line up, I made a video showing my technique, which you can find here.


For my sample manicure, I had to play around a little more with that awesome layered balloon image! The polishes from Girly Bits Cosmetics Codename: Duchess collection (see my review here) screamed out to me to be used with this plate, since the colors are so fun and the glitters in the collection are pretty much already a party in a bottle. So I started with a base of Girly Bits Cosmetics Just The Tip and Holy Sh!tsnacks!. Then I stamped some of my balloons using Girly Bits Phasing and some using Girly Bits White Wedding; I stamped my outlines with Girly Bits Little Black Dress, leaving a little bit of a gap so I'd get a watercolor sort of look. I ended up with a little warping over the curve of one nail, but not too bad. Here's how it turned out:

I love how this came out!! I wasn't sure I'd be able to pull off having half-and-half balloons on the nail with the glitter gradient, but it worked and I love it! Also, how can you not be in a happy, party mood when you look at these glitters? I mean, seriously. ;-)
