UberChic Beauty Collection 19!

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)

Hello!

Today we're going to take a look at UberChic Beauty's collection 19, their most recent plate set. Of course I did a video review to give you ideas on how to use the plates:




(BTW, if you haven't noticed, I tend to put my videos up a week or so before I'm able to post them here, so hit that subscribe button on my YouTube channel if you want to see them as early as possible!)


Here's a closer look at the plates:

What I love best about this plate: I think the circular watermelon seed image (that could also be used for other types of fruit) is very clever, and I love the strawberry layering images. But my absolute favorite on this plate is the huge camellia-type flower patter in the upper left. Love. :)

What I love best about this plate: I'm obsessed with the circular image at the bottom that will make easy, elegant French-tip or half-moon designs. I also love the wavy lines of rectangles, and the hashtag plaid. Very cool.

What I love best about this plate: That infinite image that not only has the coolest linear flowers ever, but also has the little berries in it that match the other berry image. I'm sorry, I have to say it--so berry many possibilities, hehehe! And I'm obsessed with the harlequin diamonds and the jacks patterns. :)


UberChic Beauty's full-nail images are 1.7mm x 2.1mm; here are shots with a ruler to help you judge if the other images are the right size for your nails (click for larger image):


 
 


How about that UberChic quality we've come to expect? Do these hold up? Yep:


 
 
  


As always, these swatches were done with a clear stamper, so these images should work for you even with your finicky equipment. :)


For my first manicure, I wanted to highlight how many different patterns you can get just out of the one infinite image, and how they all still go together to create an easy one-pass mani that's intricate and gorgeous:

For this mani I started with a base of Girly Bits Cosmetics Let Me Azure You (from their August CoTM duo), and stamped with Messy Mansion Chalk. I love that the design is intricate, but has big enough spaces to let that holo perfection shine on through. :)


For my second mani, I couldn't resist playing with that hashtag plaid from plate 19-02, and decided to do a double-stamping technique to play up the already overlapping lines:

The base of this mani is Sally Hansen Wild For Violet, and I stamped with Messy Mansion Chalk and Sterling.


You can find these plates on sale now in the UberChic Beauty store, and of course you can keep up with them around the interwebs here:




Happy stamping!
