Lesly Stamping Plate Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I have a big stamping post today with a new-to-me brand.  This is pretty much a summary of most of the stamping manis I've worn over the last while.  About 3 weeks ago I received a package from Russia (I love getting packages from the other side of the world) with a selection of plates from Lesly Plates.  I've seen some lovely designs on Instagram using these plates so I was happy to get to try them myself.  Keep reading for all the details about these stamping plates.

One of my favourite things about these plates is just how classic they are.  With stamping being a pretty popular form of nail art, plates have gotten pretty complex.  Sometimes it feels like the plates are designed to only be used with advanced techniques, like reverse stamping or decals.  I didn't feel the need to do that with any of these images.  They're nice all on their own.  And the quality was great.  I didn't have any issues with any of the polishes or stampers I used.  The black and white stamping looks fuzzy but I think that's because I had a gel base on and it's not always great quality when I stamp on gel.  The plates themselves range in size from 5 x 6 cm to 9.5 x 14.5 cm but the full nail images are consistently 15 x 20 mm.  It's also been fun using Google Translate on the website so I could figure out how folks can buy them for themselves.  I believe my links to the plates are through Google Translate but, if you can read Russian, feel free to find them all here.
