The mother of all stamping plates!
Lately I have been playing around with my Pueen Celebration Collection Fireworks Festival plate. This plate has been out for over a year, but it’s been sitting my nail desk drawer because I was afraid of it. Really I was. It is just so, so big. Its the size of standard piece of printer paper (a little smaller with actual dimensions of 7″ x 9.5″).
I bought it blind, cheaply and unknowingly from a Facebook discounted group buy, I had no idea what I was getting! This is one monstrous, plate. It’s a high quality steel plate with a plastic backing. It also comes in a nice fold-up cardboard carrier that will keep it safe where ever you decide to store. There is one other plate this large that Pueen sells, but otherwise this is a highly unique plate due to its size. That’s a standard circle plate and MoYou London plate sitting with it below. Worth the $20 splurge just to have a plate this size in your collection.
Pueen bills this as a STAMPING BUFFET and ALL YOU CAN STAMP plate. I really liked the images although I wouldn’t say they are highly unique in today’s stamping plate world. Although, when it came out over a year ago the images might have been more special, especially since there are quite a few images reminiscent of watermarbling techniques. Some images flow well into each other, some do not. Most images are large enough for your entire nail, a few are not. There are images of every type on this plate: blocky and flowing, flowers and spirals, geometric and motifs.
Gallery plates aren’t my favorite because I have difficulty seeing the image translated to my nail and then if I want all my nails duped it’s not the easiest to swipe, grab and place the image identically five times over, but with this large of plate and that many options it’s hard to go wrong. In any case, I think I was quite successful with a few options below. Hope you enjoy them!
This is INM Out the Door Casino Royale stamped with Pueen Fireworks Festival plate. Love the different images of the flowers; are negative and positive options. INM Casino Royale is a juicy, easy to use red, really a great polish. Stamped with Konad Special White.
Glam Polish Cutie Pox has been sitting in my blog pile for ages it feels like. It’s quite the unique pastel-y sparkle glitter bomb. This collection inspired me to watch My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic on Netflix, which apparently is some sort of cult adult cartoon. I’ll admit to watching one episode. I’m glad I did, but I won’t be watching another unless there’s a child in the room, I didn’t get it. Stamped with Konad Special White.
Finally, here’s Literary Lacquers Strawberry Ice Cream Soma, a perfect pink holo stamped with Pueen Fireworks Festival plate. This is the second time I’ve blogged about this polish, which is saying something. I did a gradient stamp with my Born Pretty Store polishes — which may or may not have been provided for review, I have a large stash some purchased, some provided–but nonetheless they are great stamping polishes.
That’s it, those are my thoughts on the Pueen Fireworks Festival stamping plate and three nail art looks. Which one is your favorite?
