Born Pretty Store Review + The Groovy Cow Mani + A Secret

Friday, February 28, 2014

*Plates provided for my honest review


I was contacted by Born Pretty Store to try some of their nail stamping plates, which I gladly accepted.  I received three stamping plates:  Plate QA71, QA33 & MLS301.   

Born Pretty Store is an online store that sells beauty items including nail art items and cosmetics, accessories, cell phone cases, etc.  They are located in Hong Kong.  If purchasing items from them you will have to wait 4 to 6 weeks to receive your items, because they are shipping internationally.  So please keep that in mind.   I have purchase stamping plates from them in the past. It took approximately 4 week to receive my items and I live in Puerto Rico.  Born Pretty Store Sells a lot of nail stamping plates for great prices, check them out here.   Many sell for .99 cents and up!

Here are the stamping plates:

Click on each plate number and it will take you directly to their link:
 QA71, QA33 & MLS301.

Here are the swatches:
I used Mash Black polish and the Black&White Stamper. 


As you can see the plates stamp beautifully.  I had no problem stamping with them, they are well etched.  They do not have a backing on them, so be careful.   I did ran my fingers along the edges to test them out.  Yes I am that crazy! lol  Good news, they do not have sharp edges. :) 

Here is a mani I created with plate QA33.  I was inspired by the cow image and created The Groovy Cow Mani.  Isn't she cute?

Groovy Cow Mani
Nail plates:  QA33 & QA4
Colors:  Sinful Snow Me White, Klean Colors Neon Yellow, Klean Colors Neon Aqua,
Klean Colors Neon Pink & Bettina Green Apple.

The stamping plate QA4, that has the cow pattern, is from my personal collection.  Born Pretty Store also sells the exact plate, but it is called QA8 click here to check it out. 

Plus, Born Pretty Store has given me a 10% off coupon code for you to use on your next order! If the coupon code is used up 10 times they will sponsor a giveaway on my Instagram. : ) Awesome right? 

Here is the code:  *Don't forget to use it!

I wanted to tell you guys a little secret.... I made a Youtube video.... Say What?? Yes, its not of the best quality but on my first video I show you how to create the Groovy Cow Mani.  Please leave me comments, rate & Subscribe if you want to see more videos.  I really appreciated if you can give me any tips on how to make better videos or give me ideas for my next video.  Thank You!

My First Video: **I was super nervous.

What do you guys think about Born Pretty Store nail stamping plates?  & What do you think of my video?  Let me know in the comment section below.

Happy Stamping!



  1. Great mani and great video Swanette! Very informative and you explained everything clearly... and I really liked that you got to the point quickly... It's a pet peeve of mine when YouTubers ramble for too long lol. Thanks so much for sharing that trick to stretch out stamping images too! I always have that problem on my thumb! Right now I only have the konad stamper though so guess I can't do it :( I need to get that XL stamper!

    1. I was so amazed by the stretching the stamper tip too! After I learn I never worried if the image was too small. You definitely should order one on ebay or two lol! They are very good, you will love them. I love both my Konad and Squishy stampers. The Black and white stamper I shown on my video isn't that squishy like another one I have but it stretches and works great too. Keep in mind when you order Black&white stamper, they are not always the same texture, some are more squisher than other, but they all have worked well for me. If you have any problems or help don't hesitate to ask. What would you like to see on my YouTube Channel? I am so glad you like it!

    2. hmm maybe a tutorial on how to make stamping decals on a plastic bag? I've only made stamping decals before on the actual stamper itself... but i've heard that you can make them in advance on a plastic bag and then peel them off when you want to use them... don't know if you've ever done that before or not... but it would be really helpful for people like me who only own one or two stampers... especially if you want a decal on each nail :)
