Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate VL 001

I’ve got quite long nails, and wide nail beds to boot, so stamping plates are a bit tricky for me to find, especially full cover !

So I was so pleased to find that Vivid Lacquer sells some lovely ones, the full cover patterns are 2 x 2 cm (0.78″), so perfect for big nails like mine 🙂

Each plate has 9 motifs, which means zillions (by my calculations) of combinations. I’ve decided to show you three from VL 001 (currently sold out) first of all.

Sorry for the changing lighting in these photos, the weather in the Paris area is crazy right now – we’ve had 28°C sun, super dark green clouds, hail, thunder, lightning and torrential rain today !


The first photo is a little fuzzy, I went for an all over stamp. I have wonky fingers so it’s tricky to align these patterns sometimes, and as you can see, I’m not the best stamper in the world…

Still, these plates give a great finish, the definition is just wonderful, and the patterns are super original!

For this one, I totally didn’t wait properly before I top coated (naughty naughty!) but I still love how it came out, even if it did streak a bit… Maybe not so office-friendly though, this one…

I’ve got two more plates to show you from Vivid Lacquer, and am sorely tempted to order some more !

    There fun stamping designs 🙂 Glad to see you found some plates that worked well for your nails.

    • Thanks Lisa !
      They’re pretty great, and not that much more expensive than the cheapy made-in-China ones, I’m so happy with these that I’m only using plastic scrapers on them to keep them unscratched 😀

  3. I love VL plates as I have the same problem you do with long nails/wide beds. I love the skull and cross bones hon! 😀

    Love the skull and cross bones!

    I also struggle with full coverage when stamping…though this might be more to do with my (lack of) technique!

  5. These are all so pretty! I’ve discovered that stamping isn’t my greatest talent. . Not at all. The plated I have (BM) doesn’t cover my nails. Maybe I should give these a try?

  6. […] I really wanted to do a bird mani tonight, and had a funky parrot on my VL 001 plate to test out […]
