I recently purchased the 2013 Gals Princes Set and wanted to share with you swatches and designs I created with them. I purchased them from Amazon here, but you can also purchase them on Cheeky's website here. They sell for around $12 and you get 25 plates. That's only .48 cents a plate.
There are a lot of mixed reviews on amazon and honestly that was one of the main reasons I took so long to purchase them. Fortunately I had no problem with them, they stamped beautifully. I really like the geometrical patterns. They are mostly full nail images as you see below:
I believe that a picture is worth a thousand word, so I took the time to swatch each plate using Wet n Wild Black Crème. The picture will demonstrate that they do indeed stamp beautifully.
Here are some simple mani's I posted on Instagram using the Gals Princes Set:
1. Colors used: Rimmel Sage All The Rage as my base, plate GA14 & China Glaze Con-fused.
2. Colors used: Orly Sea Girl for my base, plate GA4 & China Glaze Split Perso-nail-ity. Ring finger: @kraftygurldesigns Totally Rad over Zoya Raven.
3. Colors used: Finger Paints It's an Original as my base, plate GA6 & China Glaze Modify Me.
4. Colors used: China Glaze holographic Get Outta My Space, plate GA12 & China Glaze magnetix Positively in Love.
As you see in the pictures above the plates are very good. I really love they way stamped. Luckily I had no problem with them, but I do advise you, if you ever get a plate that doesn't stamp or is badly etch you should immediately call customer service, they should be able to help you out.
Finally the size of these plates. They are slightly smaller than Pueen plates. Here is a pic of the measurement using inches.
I really hope my post helps you out. I tried my best to show you in photos the quality and size of these plates. What do you think of them? Will you be purchasing them, please leave me a comment below.
