Hello my lovelies! I hope your week is going great. Today's post is all about stamping nail art. I've already shown you some stamping plates from the Born Pretty Store, so it's no secret that they carry some great quality plates that are very affordable. The one I'm showing you today is from the QA range and is perfect for people with larger nail beds. It looks like this.

QA71* is a hexagonal shaped stamping plate with 4 full nail designs and 4 smaller ones. The full nail designs are fairly large and have a rounded shape, which means they can fit on larger nails. They are about 21 mm long and 15 mm wide. I love the fact that these fit my thumb nail because most of the full nail images out there don't. You do need an XL stamper to fit the whole image because the standard sized ones are smaller. I swatched all the images on a piece of paper to show you that they all stamp well.
I only had a little trouble with the smaller images but I'm sure it was because I wasn't very careful with the stamping. These images gave me sort of a henna tattoo feel so I decided to create a manicure inspired by henna.
As a base I used Flormar 12 from the Quartz line. It's a nude creme that is very similar to my skin tone, which gives it that mannequin hands look. I applied 2 thicker coats to make this opaque and then stamped with Konad Black after it dried. I really liked this look on my short nails. I think it's the perfect way to jazz up a plain shade like this one without being too over the top.
This is the second QA plate I review and I'm very impressed with the quality of these. If you are interested in this particular one you can find it here.
