Good afternoon, readers! It's been quiet around here on Adventures In Acetone lately, have you noticed? School is out for the summer AND my little Owen (almost 3 years old) has had a stomach bug for a few days. However, he is feeling a little better today so I have some time to share the newest set of stamping plates from Winstonia. There are 20 plates and most of them are full plate designs where there aren't spaces between the images. Let's take a closer look below at each plate, plus a couple of manis I've worn since the plates arrived at my house.
Before I show you the plates, I wanted to touch base on a few things in general with the set. As you can see below, the 20 plate set comes in this little box. My other stamp plates are just thrown into a basket in my storage so having these in a box was really helpful.
Each stamp plate comes with a blue protective film over the images. Before use, peel it up and discard. Also, they all have a permanent paper backing and smooth edges.
The plates are etched very well and I didn't notice any issues with use. They are 2.7 inches in diameter and as you will notice, they aren't the typical rectangular full nail images. Most take up 1/4 of the circle allowing for use with wider and longer nail beds, as well as the option to turn and reposition the image from nail to nail.
Time for a closer look at each plate!
There are tons of different images to play around with in this set, I've only begun to try them out. Below are some manis using these Winstonia Third Generation Stamping Plates.
I've already shown you a manicure using the Tri-Arrow Tessellation image from plate W305 HERE.
I loved the swirly floral image from plate W311 and was inspired to use it in the mani below.
- I started out with a white base and then randomly applied the following China Glaze Electric Nights colors to a makeup sponge and pressed onto the nail: Home Sweet House Music, Glow With the Flow, Treble Maker, DJ Blue My Mind, Violet-Vibes, Daisy Know My Name?, and Red-y To Rave.
- Once the base was dry, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black and my Creative Shop Stamper to stamp the floral image from Winstonia Plate W311 onto the nails.
- KBShimmer Clearly On Top was used to seal it all in.
The large flower image from plate W312 also called my name as soon as I opened the box. I turned the stamper before applying it to each nail so they aren't all the same.
- I started out with two coats of Elevation Polish Iceberg Lake and topped it with one coat of Elevation Polish East London.
- Once dry, I used Elevation Polish Kilauea and my Creative Shop Stamper to stamp the flower from Winstonia Plate W312.
- I used a small detail brush to fill in the inner petals with Elevation Polish Grand Teton Sunset.
- KBShimmer Clearly On Top was used to seal it all in and add shine.
