Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate XL-007

 Press Sample 

Hi guys! Today, I'll be sharing the last stamping plate I received from Beauty Big Bang.

This is Stamping Plate XL-007 (SKU: BBBXL-007). The plate has many unicorn images, as well as: clouds, stars and rainbows.
Just looking at the plate, I knew I wanted to use those cute little clouds. I started off with a pastel blue base on my pointer and pinky, and a sky blue on my middle and ring finger. For my pointer and pinky, I went ahead and did a smoosh design using a stamper - I used that same pastel blue, a pastel pink, and a lavender for my smoosh design. While that was drying, I picked up my cloud image and did some reverse stamping, filling in the clouds with a silver holo polish. Once filled in, I went ahead and stamped it onto my nail. For my middle nail, I picked up the rainbow image, and filled it in, using the polishes I used for the smoosh and clouds. I then chose the unicorn from a bigger image, added the "I'm a unicorn" phrase, and stars to complete my ring finger. As you can see, I used many different images to achieve that nail design. To finish off the mani, I applied top coat.
Close-Ups:
I am so glad this mani turned out ok, but I kind of wish I had just gone with a whole cloud mani instead. Other than that, I had no issues with the plate.

Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate XL-002

 Press Sample 

Hey guys! Today I have the next stamping plate from Beauty Big Bang to share with you.

Stamping Plate XL-002 (SKU: BBBXL-002) is another plate with great summer designs. It has some beachy, vacation, nautical, and mermaid images. I had no issue with picking up the images, and I must say that I believe I'm finally starting to get better at stamping with the metal stamper from one of my past reviews. That makes me so happy. 😄
Anyway, for my mani, I was inspired by one of my favorite shows - H2O: Just Add Water. I started off with a base of the lightest blue polish on all of my nails. Then, I added drops of various blues and teals to my stamper, and stamped it on my silicone mat. After that, I stamped whatever was left on my stamper onto my nails, making a smoosh design on my: pointer, ring finger and pinky. Over the smoosh design, I stamped on some mermaid scales (I filled in some scales), and a mermaid. For my middle nail, I chose an island image - I picked it up and filled it in. Once it was filled in, I stamped it onto my nail. The last thing to do was to apply top coat. Since my mani was inspired by H2O: Just Add Water, the island is supposed to be Mako Island, and it had to include a mermaid of course.
Close-Ups:
So what do you guys think? I really like how this turned out, and I'm so glad that my stamping is improving.

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this short review and mani. Remember to use my code ANNY for 10% off your order. I've listed their socials below in case you'd like to check them out.

Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate XL-001

 Press Sample 

Hi guys! Today I have the next Beauty Big Bang stamping plate to share with you.

This is Stamping Plate XL-001 (SKU: BBBXL-001). It has some ocean, tropical, and fruit images that are great for summer. I did have a bit of trouble with picking up some of the more detailed parts of the images, but I think it was because I was using a stamper I'm still getting used to.
For this mani, I started off with a beautiful jelly polish. I stamped on a beautiful scalloped scale design on my pointer, middle finger, and pinky. On my ring finger, I decided to make a little oceanic scene. To make the ocean scene, I used 2 images from the plate, only taking certain parts from them. For example, I stamped on a seahorse and starfish from 1 plate, and a jellyfish and coral from another. I think it came out really neat. To finish off, I just applied top coat.
Close-Ups:
So what do you guys think? I hope you like this mani, it was so fun to do. Also, you can see that you're able to mix-and-match from the images to make up something different, which is pretty cool.

Well, I hope you enjoyed the review. Remember, you can use my code ANNY for 10% off your order. I've listed their socials below, in case you're interested.

Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate 017 & Bliss Polish 5th Anniversary Collaboration

 Press Sample 

Hi guys! I have some Beauty Big Bang items to share with you the next couple of posts. Today I'll be showing you one of their stamping plates.

This is Stamping Plate 017 (SKU: J6482TM), it's full of LGBT pride and love images. As always, the images looked well-etched, and picked up nicely. This stamping plate can be used for rainbow pride nails, marriage/wedding nails, valentine's day nails, etc.
The image I chose for my mani, was the full-nail hearts image. I first began with a crelly for my base, then I picked up my image, and started filling each heart in using a variety of polishes. Once they were all filled in, I went ahead and stamped them onto my nail. I did that for each nail. After I finished, I went ahead and applied top coat.
Close-Ups:
I also did this mani with a Bliss Polish Anniversary Collaboration in mind, which is why I used the entire Hi-5 Anniversary Collection by Bliss Polish. A big thanks to Mayra for putting this collage together.
I love how this mani turned out. Like I said, the images picked up well and you can get so many different manis with this plate.
