Whats Up Nails Stamping Plate Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  It's the weekend and finally one that isn't from the depths of winter so I'm thrilled!  To start my weekend, I'm writing a blog post with so many manis in it.  I recently received the newest stamping plates from Whats Up Nails and I absolutely fell in love with them so I hope you like them too.  Honestly, Whats Up makes some of my favourite stamping plates these days.  They don't have a ton of images but the ones they have are unique and beautiful AND the plates aren't expensive...so you can buy more, haha!  Here I've used four of them: Nature's Beauty Garden (full of florals and other foliage patterns), Texture Me Nature (with some incredibly cool and unique nature patterns), Sin City Life (with lots of Vegas themed images and even a bit of New York) and Fashion Prints (with images that would make some beautiful textiles).  And it just so happens that the Nail Crazies Unite prompt this week is neon floral so I did my first Nature's Beauty Garden mani with that theme in mind.

I was more than happy with each of these plates.  I particularly loved the nature plates because they have more of the image styles that I'm drawn to.  I am definitely doing to play even more with the Texture Me Nature plate once I'm caught up on nail group manis.  I want to use that lightning image again.  I'm scared to death of lightning so maybe if I wear it on my nails a lot, it'll desensitize me, haha!  Even if it doesn't, the image is amazing!
