The manicure inspiration was by Colores de Carol specifically this manicure she did, It’s so cute!
with my Fab ur Nails hello kitty plate on the way I was beyond excited to try something along the lines of this manicure. Two colors are from the new Hello Kitty collection and the stamping polish was from the Gwen Stefani collection.
OPI – Look at my Bow!
OPI- Starry-eyed for Daniel
OPI- Hey Baby (stamping polish)
Venique- wingtip white
Morgan Taylor- Go ahead and grow
Seche Vite- Top Coat
Fab Ur Nails- Fun 09
Winstonia- squishy stamper
I started with two coats of OPI- Look at my bow! and stamped over it with OPI- Hey Baby from the Gwen Stefani collection. The ring finger has two coats of OPI- Starry-Eyed for Daniel. On top of Starry-Eyed for Daniel I used the same OPI- Look at my bow! to fill in the bow and Veniques- Wingtip White to fill in Hello Kitty.
Here’s a picture with flash
Now for a close up of Starry-Eyed for Daniel. Two coats is enough to cover your nail. It’s more opaque than I thought. I usually stay away from glitters because of how annoying they are to take off. I’ll let you know how it goes with this one.
I just received my Fab ur Nails plate, It took about 2 weeks to get over here to the east coast from the Philippines. The shipping was $6.30 USD, my package had a tracking number which got updated every day to every few days. Note: This particular plate has been discontinued.
When the package got here it was wrapped pretty nicely and Johanne included a scraper with the plate. It’s a hello kitty scraper and has the feel of a gift card. I was really hoping this was the scraper that I received I love hello kitty! I use pure acetone to clean my plates and from what I have noticed the scrapers image doesn’t fade. When i first opened the package i was a little surprised at the size of the plate itself it’s about the size of my hand. The dimensions are: 9.5 x 14.5 cm
I was a worried about the size of the full size images seeing as I have long and wide nail beds. The full nail images are about the size of the Moyou London xl images at 1.5 x 2cm. The website has the full nail images listed as 1.6 cm x 2.1 cm this means they are bigger than Moyou London.
The only thing I found off about my plate was a deep scratch that was probably from transit. You can see it pretty clearly in the bottom image but luckily it does not interfere too much with the image itself. The scratch is about the thickness of a hair strand.
I had to see how the scratch affected the image. I did find that by rolling the stamper across the image rather than stamping straight on with the bolder images it works better. This was just a quick swatch of the images to see about the scratch.
Below are the images on this plate in case you’re interested.
The etching on all the images is perfect and I had absolutely no problem picking up any of the images. I had hesitated ordering from Fab ur Nails for a very long time but I’m glad I took the plunge. I have only heard good things from Fab ur Nails and of the owner Johanne. I have already placed another order for some stampers.
I wish i had a more opaque polish for the mickey mouse pattern. The plate itself is also too short for my nails so they’re a little warped looking. Overall a really cute manicure and a decent stamping plate. would not recommend the plate for those with long nail beds. if anyone wants a tutorial id be happy to make one.
