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 🙂

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-004

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!

Vivid Lacquer VL 015 Stamping Plate

Good evening! It’s the weekend, wooop! Everyone got nice plans?

This evening, I’m going to show you the second 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 🙂

This time, it’s VL 015 – which is currently out of stock. But Anni restocks really regularly. I know this from personal experience, when the first time I ordered, one of the plates I wanted was out of stock. It came back up really quickly, so check that out here and add it to your favourites if you like what you see!

First of all I tried the tartan pattern. It comes out lovely and crisp, but I found the edges a bit hard to get to print out right. I finally figured out that’s because the room where I was stamping was quite warm, and as the pattern is particularly fine, it was drying out a bit. Still, can you see the amazing definition in the parts that I didn’t screw up?

Vivid Lacquer VL 009 Stamping Plate

I hope everyone’s having a nice weekend? We’re having a lazy one, but that’s just as nice (if not nicer…) than a busy weekend! Lots of lie-ins and plenty of time to play with my nails YES PLEASE 😀

So recently Anni of Vivid Lacquer contacted me to kindly offer to send some plates for me to review! Super cool! I’m not the greatest at stamping, so I was super flattered ❤

Like many people, I started off stamping with Konad, and quickly got frustrated at the size of their ‘full cover’ patterns. My nails are pretty long, and fairly wide, so I moved on to Vivid Lacquer plates and have been using them for a while now – the full cover patterns are a huge 2cm x 1.5cm – that’s exactly the right size for my thumb nail, so I can get them all covered with these babies!

It’s pretty hard to know where to start with these plates, each one has so many possibilities! I started off with VL 009, which you can purchase here if you like!

This plate has a couple of water-marble inspired patterns, like this ‘water drop’ one.

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…

Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate VL 001

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

Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate VL 001

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 !
