Vivid Lacquer VL 012 Stamping Plate

Hey ladies, sorry for those of you further West, but I just have one more day to go to the weekend 😀

This evening, I’m going to show you the last of three stamping plates that Anni of Vivid Lacquer kindly sent for me to review! The review for the first of the three (VL  009) is here if you’d like to see it and the second, (VL 015) is here.

This time, it’s VL 012 – which is also currently out of stock. But Anni restocks really regularly, so check that out here and add it to your favourites if you like what you see! I think this plate might just be my favourite ❤

I used nearly all the motifs, everything except the bubbles. First up, the lotus patterns, in Barry M Gold Foil Effects over China Glaze Charmed, I’m Sure. The lines are beautiful and crisp, even I couldn’t mess up this stamping!

And the colour combo, *pow*, I love it! I might have to try to get away with a mani like this in the office sometime…

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-007

I decided to go a bit funky after that, and went for a French mani as the base, then stamped over it in China Glaze Vintage Crepe and Sacred Heart. I think I like how this looks, but I think it might be more suited to the summer 😉

Still, colour combination aside, the Koi carp come out beautifully! See the detail?

love the fishies! There’s also little versions of them, if you like. And both the big and little versions are in mirror image and opposite relief, so you can stamp the lines or the filled part – I love that, it’s so versatile 😀

As if that wasn’t enough, there are also froggies and geckos! Both full-cover and the little critters individually

Yes; I am childish enough to make the individual geckos I stamped share a little kiss…tee hee! Stamping plates are a great way of getting these fiddly designs done right, and are less expensive than stickers or decals, since you can re-use them time and time again 🙂

I scrape my plates a little too hard, so I filled in some of the white with a nail art pen, but that’s my fault, not the plates 😉

I love how, on the full-cover gecko pattern, the little marks between the geckos… Are gecko footprints! Adorable!

Vivid Lacquer plates are available on Etsy. They are really popular and can sell out quickly, but are re-stocked very regularly, so it’s really worth checking often – plus, there are new patterns seasonally, which are utterly stunning!

Thanks again to Anni for sending me these lovely plates to show you!

    All of them look fantastic! I’m so jealous of your stamping skills!

    • ohh I’m awful at stamping! The trick is, to put a nice thick coat of top coat on before you stamp. Then, when you need to correct it, you can just gently rub off the stamping with a bit of acetone, and try again 😀 I’m such a cheat!

    I adore the first manicure – the combination of the colors and the stamps are just so lovely!!
