Born Pretty store stamping plate KandNail review

As promised in previous post, I have a review for you you of an item, online store Born Pretty  representative sent to me for reviewing purposes. So, I got opurtunity to choose one item they sent to me for review on my blog and I chose this stamping image plate (as you know I love konadicures and that's my speciallity).
So, this image plate has 42 different designs, this particular one has mostly french tips designs and some all over nail designs. When I was choosing item, I had very longnails and I thought I would try french tip design and show it to you, but in the meantime, I shorten my nails and now I can't actually show design on my nail.
Well, let's see the designs more up close:

Very pretty right?
Well, I did a little experiment on piece of paper, to se how the designs transfer. I chose one very simple (french tip), one little more detailed and one very detailed.
I started with basic french tip design:
In all threetries I couldn't get nice clean stamped design. I think this design is not enough deeply carved in to the plate. When you place  nail polish over image and than use scraper to remove acces polish, you scrape almost all nail polish away. You have to use very gently hand to scrape away and than you have a lot of nail polish outside the image and it's harder to stamp it. I suppose when you stamp it on nails, this smudge around is not on nail surface and it's ok.

Than I tried this design with a little more details and this one stamps perfect. I can't wait to have longers tips that I'll use this one on my nails (I'll post it)

Than I tried this very detailed lace design and with this one I also had problems. It's way too much details to transfer all of it. This one I don't like at all. 

Here are couple random ones that transfer quite all right, maybe I should have had more stady hand. I like them all.
And here is comparison in size between Bundle monster and Kand Nail images. Left is Bundle monster and you can see it's much bigger that Kand nail image is. So, if you have longer and wider nails, I think this all over nail design would be too small.

And my opinion about this plate? It's not very good knock off of Konad, but for the money (9$) it's okay. Some french tip design transfer great and some don't. All over design transfer nice but they are smaller that usuall all over nail designs, that we are used to. But I'll give them a chance to work as good as they can :-)

Depend holographic polish no.2036

 First of all, I'm sorry that I've been away for such a long time, but guys, this is my first post as a MOM :-) But, let's stay with this review of this amazing polish from DEPEND. It's no. 2036 and it my favorite from holographic line that DEPEND recently came out.
 I applied two coats and this one truly shines on sunlight. I finished it with a coat of Seche vite and it's shines even more.
 This are the three polishes I have so far, and no. 2036 is by far my favorite.
 This polish applies great, very smooth and the brush does not leave any stripes behind. I would say this polishes are as great as China glaze's holographic ones are, if not even more!!!
Would you like to see the other two also?

 If you are a big FLAKIES fan, you must try this topcoat out!!! I fell in love with it in store and love still countinues!!! First I did basic french manicure and let it dry.

 When it was dry, I went over with flake top coat and this is how it looks like. Amazing right? Me LOVE it :-)

Essence BE OPTIMISTIC! and review: Studio nails Gel style nail stickers

This review I promised you a while ago and here it is! First I started with two coats of Colour&go nail polish BE OPTIMISTIC! Gorgeous bronzy- orange color with shine finish. 
 And than I decided to try this leopard print Studio nails stickers over it. I applied as instructed. First I chose the right size for all nails and then I placed them first near my cuticle and carefully placed them over my nail.
 If they were too long, I philed them off, to get sharp and crisp edge. So far so good!
 I admit, they look fantastic!!!! but here it all ends....

 After two hours wearing them (not doing much, becasuse it was sunday), this started to happen.... First only on one finger, enge was starting to came off.... I placed it back a couple of times...

 Than I even went over with clear top coat, to placed them back...
 ... but nothing I did, helped...
 They went completly off. And as instructions said, they are very easy to remove, they just pealled off! On their own! OMG, I was so frustrated, because I took me about half of hour to get them on, for two hour resolt!!!
Ladies, defenitely DON'T recommend buying or wearing them, because it's just too much work for couple of hours resolt :-( A BIG NO NO!!!!
