Lina Nail Art Supplies Make Your Mark 07, Spring 02 and Totally Negative 02 Stamping Plate Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  A few weeks ago Lina Nail Art Supplies released a whole pile of new plates, a whopping eight of them which is a really big release.  She was kind enough to send me three of them and all three showed me once again why I'm so drawn to her plates.  She comes up with such creative, gorgeous images.  Lina has quite a few series of plates and I picked the releases my top three series to try out this time, Make Your Mark 07, Four Seasons - Spring 02 and Totally Negative 02.  I was feeling inspired so I did three full manis with each plate so this is pretty representative of what I've been wearing out and about since receiving them.

Each Lina Nail Art Supplies plate is 14.5 x 9.5 cm, made of stainless steel.  Each full size image measures 17 x 22 mm but lots of her plates also have smaller individual images which make fun additions.  Even though a lot of her images have very fine details, the etching is great.  Some of the images with more subtle differences are a bit finicky (the middle images on the second rows of the Make Your Mark 07 and Totally Negative 02 plates) and didn't work absolutely perfectly for me but they were still usable.  I talked to Lina about this and she thought I might have gotten a defective plate which she was willing to replace - that's how great her customer service is.  I didn't think it was worth it for me to get a replacement since I didn't buy the product myself but I appreciated the effort she put in despite that.  She really went beyond what I was expecting.
