Don't bother with color club!
Horrible plates! Attempted my first stamping with them as my local shop started carrying this brand only. I gave up after several frustrating days of trying to get a good print assuming it was my fault and not the products I was using. Plus the stamper holder broke within five minutes. Six months later I ordered a random plate, and Born pretty stamper and polish from wish. Well I did figure it out, so I tried the Born pretty tools on the color club plate and again could not get it to work. So basically their plates there polish and their stampers are junk. Beautometry took my money for a pre-order 2 months ago and still no product.

She also has amazing funky stamping polishes, water decals, multicolored stampers, and more. It is an international shop however so shipping can be pretty steep, but you can order directly from the website. I like to buy bigger orders to maximize each shipment plus now you can get free international shipping above a certain cost 70 Euros I think. She also happens to be the only seller I know of that supplies the MagnoNails stamper outside of the company itself. Chez Delaney - Out Of Business. Another international site and also has tons of unique plates and stamping polishes.
Her own Chez Delaney brand has been causing me plategasms over the last few months! I always find things I'm lusting for here and again I try to order all at once since the shipping and Euro's can be cost-prohibitive. However like a lot of sellers recently you can receive free shipping above a certain cost. Cesear's Shop Finland - Yup another international shop, but this is where I found my beloved Charming nails plate. It's a one of a kind Konad UK plate that you can't get in the US created by my fellow bloggers on Nail Artists United they aren't really active any longer though.
The owner of Cesears' Satu is really sweet and a real doll so swing on by and pick up some things if you get the chance!

They also offer a variety of stamping accessories and nail art products. Pueen Cosmetics - Pueen stands along in many ways a a company that first introduced the circular landscape plates - the Buffet plates. They have released so many collections of round plates and also jumbo sized plates it boggles. More recently they have expanded to rectangular style plates much in the tradition of MoYou London.
They also sell various stamping supplies of which I have not been so enamored but I haven't tried any of the more recent stampers. I still prefer to shop for items from them via Amazon - its faster and the customer service is better. Despite that the plates have always been in excellent condition.

Apipila - A Brazilian company that carries a variety of interesting and unique plates with images! Beware shipping can be cost prohibitive since this is another international store. I highly recommend buying a bundle or in a group buy if you can to cut costs. Non Brazilian buyers can email the seller at atendimento apipila. The quality of these plates is decent though sometimes you can get flawed plates occasionally. She can be slow to completely non responsive to emails such that at this point I only purchase her plates through reliable re-sellers of her products such as Decor Unhas.
Sugar Bubbles Store - Another brand on the indie plate making scene. You can find her on Facebook here. She pretty much no longer ships to buyers individually, but her plates can be purchased from any one of her stockists found on her FB page.

They also have several coupon codes and sales that happen intermittently if you sign up for the newsletter. A bonus is you can always purchase Pueen and other plates individually!

Shipping can be pretty slow, but the upside is when they run their sales you can really save on plates and considerably expand your collection.
Nailways - A Dutch nail supply company. One caveat ordering from the site stresses me because languages aren't my strong suit and this is definitely foreign territory for me pun intended. The entire site is written in Dutch.
The reviews were mixed regarding quality of the Nailways plates when the company first started producing. However I must say all of mine work like a charm so the issue must have been straightened out.

These plates are also from a company called MoYou but they are not MoYou London, the creators of the infinity plates. They also sell these gargantuan jumbo plates with all the images pushed into one massive conglomerate spread out over 5 releases. In addition, they sell various high quality stamping polishes. I have a large quantity of the round plates that I got during a group buy they are extremely high quality and creative. This company had an extremely rocky start releasing plates that had multiple issues including problems with etching and sizing of the images.
Ruth closed up shop and came back last year to hit us with what can only be described as insanely inventive images that draw heavily on cult favorites like Barbie, Harry Potter, and Looney Tunes cartoons of old. Best yet the quality of the plates has improved by leaps and bounds. I still haven't bitten the bullet since I think her prices are a bit unreasonable. The shop is often intermittently restocked so you have to be quick to get your plates.

It took over 10 months to receive items I ordered or for some ladies to receive a refund for products we purchased during a group buy. And this was only after putting a great deal of pressure on the seller via social media.
The quality of these plates is also subpar compared to other plates on the market. You can read more about that here but you have been warned.

I've found in my experience that the shipping is a quite a bit faster than when I order from Mundo de Unas if that's any incentive!
Lesly Plates - Another brand I don't own, but I've heard good things about via other nail art stampers. The reason I've held off on putting information up about this brand is that all purchases in the past had to be made via Western Union. However recently these plates have been made available via a Netherlands reseller Hypnotic Polish.
Not all the plates are available here and many are sold out, but I think most will find this a rather more appealing option than the Western Union route. I'll also warn you in advance these plates are a bit on the costly side of things as compared to other brands UberChic Beauty - Run by the sweet and hardworking Brittany these plates are fresh and innovative. The quality of etching is superb and the images are some of the coolest and unique I've seen in ages. Six collections to date along with many individual plates for purchase so far.

I have a few studs nails! Just so versatile! So I combined them in this skittles mani over some yet to be released Star Kin polishes, and it ended up making a very accidentally!
These are easy to work with: get the stud you want, and plonk it on your still-slightly-damp nail polish. With the smaller studs I tend to use a little skewer or a nail dotting tool which I dip into a bit of water in order to pick up the little things, and with the bigger ones I use tweezers.
Once on and in the right place, add top coat if you want them to last awhile. The red star was too large for my ring finger, it looks fine in the photos but the edges stuck over the curve slightly, and then they get lost during the day. Like most 3D effects, this would be great for a fun day, or night out. I really quite liked this combo, and I made it through most of the day before losing a few studs here and there, though most I just removed and put back to reuse at a later stage.
Jan Posted in Uncategorized. Saturday a week and a bit ago, I went skydiving with my mother and Sister V. My mother had gone the week before and was so hyped about it she wanted to go again as in, immediately! Sister V leapt at the chance. I took a night to think it over and do the research.. So… after that angst, next came the nail angst!
The polish themselves worked, but little things like my eldest son bumping them etc etc.. This is — mostly — Emily de Molly Hole in the Sky. My Sister C bought this for me wheee! Perfect pale periwinkle blue with silver holo glitters including mid size silver holo dots.
Just gorgeous. I feel like I could have done a better job, but I liked it overall. And how was it? My tandem jump guru took me through a nice barrel roll during that time so I did get to look up at the plane as we fell backwards, sort of. We were still freefalling, we did 10, feet in 60 seconds, but there was some purchase especially once the stabilizer chute opened , the view was amazing, and it was just wow. Then the main parachute opened and it was surreal and serene and glorious and I wish that I could parachute everywhere, every day.
Because man it does that. Posted in Sight , unCommon. Dec The other review post! Look at them! The squishy round 3D-ness of them. I do like spiders. I think they are fascinating animals. However, I do have a policy where if they do not jump on me, I do not jump on them. Sep The post is here if you are curious! Our Etsy shop is here. Create a free website or blog at WordPress.
