Plastic Stamping "plates" by KKCenterHK


Hi my dears! I'm slowly getting back in the track, and I really have a million things to do after this vacation. That's why taking a vacation has its downsides too, you work the double before leaving to have everything set and ready, and you work the double when you're back to catch up with the cumulated things during the absence LOL!
Anyways, today I have an "innovating" nail art item, kindly sent to me by KKCenterHK for my honest review, which consists in a different system to stamp on your nails with a Plastic stamping plate NNAIL-SPPNA09.





As you can see this is like a big "stamper" which is in hard white plastic on one side, the one with the patterns in colour, and is made of rubber on the other side, the one used actually for stamping your nails. The plastic plate I got has 5 designs that are all meant to create French tips. Take a look:
 

This works in a very simple way: Just apply nail polish to the  desired pattern, put the stamper down on a piece of paper and remove the excess polish with a sliding motion. Don't rub it against the paper or you will take off too much polish. Then stamp on your nail. 


As for any regular stamping plate, this one will work better with good stamping polishes, there's no secret to that, some colours just stamp better than others! My advice is do not use paper towels or any kind of absobing paper because that will absorb most of the polish and you won't be able to stamp. Instead use regular paper (the pack of an used envelope for instance) that works just fine.

The plastic plate worked very well for me! I'd say the process of stamping is simplified, considering you only have to clean one item instead of three (4 if you also count the plate holder), it's quicker and cleaner way to achieve your nail art. The only downside is that these take much more storage room than a regular plate, so if you'd like to have many of them you'll need a special place to store them.
Other than that, if you only do stamping once in a while, like I do, and if you're not interested in owning 200 different plates, if you struggle with the scrapper that does not scrap enough, or scraps too much, and the little pink stampers that do not pick up the images correctly, and all of those little problems, I think you might found a solution with this item!
You can order this item from the KKCenterHK store under: Plastic stamping plate NNAIL-SPPNA09

  1. Este suena bien,aunque tengo que admitir que no tienen mucha variedad de placas.
    Acabo de ver en la página web. Tienen muchas cosas en esa tienda.
    Aunque la idea de que vendan pestañas de cabello humano me revuelve un poco el estómago.No quiero ni saber de dónde las sacaron.

    Si yo pudiera escoger una placa escogería esta :http://www.kkcenterhk.com/m86/N.NAIL/p11408/N.Nail-Party-U.S-Paris-Moon-Cat-Bat-Heart-Plastic-Stamping-Plate/product_info.html

    Pero me pregunto cómo quedarán en personas con dedos pequeños y delgados, ya que de todos las placas todas tienen imágenes bastante grandes.

    Espero que no sea muy complicado hacer imágenes con la placas normales.

    Y tienes razón coleccionar las de plástico tomaría mucho lugar.
    Pero bueno yo me conformaría sólo con una placa ya que sólo planeo estampar un diseño en un solo dedo. Algo así como un acento especial en la mano.

    1. Hola andrea! Tienes razón no hay mucha variedad, pero es una idea práctica para alguien que no hace nail art todo los días! para manicuras profesionales siguen siendo mejor las placas convencionales.
      Es un poco más fácil con esta placa, pero las placas normales no son difíciles. ya recibiste la tuya?

    2. Pues no, se perdió,después de preguntarles mucho dónde estaba me ofrecieron una placa nueva, pero no me han confirmado nada.
      Pues en realidad la tomé por el diseño único que tiene, pero ni tengo experiencia y tampoco el sellador para pasar los diseños. Estaba convencida que conseguiría una manera de pasarlo sin el sellador (nail stamper) Y bueno el que tu tienes es práctico para alguien como yo que solo quiere sólo un diseño en una uña y no hace nail art todos los días.

  2. Wait, the "plate" is of rubber instead of metal? First I didn't understand but this seems quite neat. :D

    1. Hi Melissa! I think for someone that does occasionally nail art, is a great option. :)

  4. Ciao bella! Welcome back from your holiday! Did you buy any Italian polishes??? :P
    Hm, I like the idea... However, isn't is hard to aim with such a large stamper...? I find it hard to aim precisely with the normal stamper... Baci! xx

    1. Ciao cara! Yeeesss! I bought many Italian polishes!! I'll show them in the blog next week.
      At the begining I was skeptical about this plate too, but the fact that you can see the desing on the back helps a lot to place it on the nail. You should give it a try! baci, xx

  5. Hi Nati,hmmm this sounds very neat!!! But I once more faltered with stamping, I just don't get it and trying one or two nails and come up "emtpy-stamped" is just too frustrating. But these patterns look awesome and you did such a skilled and beautiful mani with it :-) - Bisous xxx
