Review: UberChic Beauty Collection 16

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


UberChic Beauty has been putting out a ton of awesome new stuff lately, I can barely keep up! In case you didn't know, my reviews always go up in video form on my YouTube Channel before anywhere else (collection 17 is already up there, too), so if you want to see them as soon as they post, subscribe and you'll get a notification...and there might be a collection 18 review coming soon...just sayin'!


Here's the video review of collection 16:




And let's take a closer look here at the plates:

What I'm most obsessed with on this plate: The bottom set of images with the hibiscus flowers--some with leaves, an entire sprig, a full nail image and an isolated image--so many possibilities! Also the twig image at the very top, which can be layered under just about any sort of flower image. But maybe most of all, the round image at bottom right--how cool would it be to use that to make a gorgeous sun filled with rays coming off of your half moon??

What I'm most obsessed with on this plate: The five-pointed negative-space flower images in all the different sizes--mix-n-match possibilities aplenty. I also adore that mum-type flower that looks like a medallion--such pretty detail. And the combo check-plaid pattern is very fun.

What I'm most obsessed with on this plate: Those deco circles that look like their made of strings of pearls!! I also adore the delicate negative-space circle flower pattern second from bottom left, and all of the patterns that play with diamonds. Love, love, and love.


UberChic Beauty full nail images are 17 mm X 21 mm. Here're shots with a ruler so you can see how big the other images are:






How do they stamp? Beautifully:



 


These were all done with a clear stamper, and I'm very, very impressed. Great quality!


For my manicure, I started with a base of Penny Bloom Go Sharks! (one of my custom creations!) over Girly Bits Yes, We Can, and then stamped one image from 16-02 and one from 16-03 with Messy Mansion Chalk:

Did I mention how excited I was about those diamond images, and the plaid/check image?? So much I couldn't decide which to use first, and I just love how well they go together. Something about this feels very spring-y to me, like the blanket you lay down for an awesome picnic on the beach. So happy with how all of these colors play with each other.


You can find this collection and tons of other goodies in UberChic Beauty's shop; you can also find them hanging out around the interwebs:




Happy stamping!
