Born Pretty Feathers & Bird Stamping

Today I have another Born Pretty Store stamping plate to show you. This is plate BP-58, which is available here for $2.99. As you can see, this plate has lots of cute birds, and some lovely individual feathers.

I did two looks with this plate, one with a full nail design and one with an individual feather. 

This first design has a grey base of Nella Milano Mercury Haze. I then stamped using the birds on a wire part of the plate and Barry M Silver Foil.

The plate stamped really well, apart from that one spot on the tip of my index finger - that was my fault though, not the plate's.  

The second look I did was with the peacock feather in the centre of the plate. I started with a base of Chanel Peridot, which is a polish I just love for its gorgeous greeny gold finish. I had initially planned to stamp using a bright turquoise metallic blue, but apparently none of my polishes were suitable as they just didn't show over the gold. Nothing to do with the plate, it was just the polish wasn't pigmented enough. 

Instead, I used China Glaze Don't Make Me Wine, which is a gorgeous dark metallic reddy purple. This stamped beautifully, and I love how this looks! Don't look at my poor stumpy thumbnail!  It broke badly across the corner a week ago, and is still not really presentable.

This looks fab in the evening sunshine!

I think this is a really nice stamp, and I can definitely see this one getting a lot of use. I think the cute cartoon birds in the heart would make a lovely spring or Valentine's mani.

The plate is currently $2.99, but you can get 10% off using my discount code.  

I received this product for review purposes, but words and opinions are entirely my own. I do not receive anything if you use my discount code, although when it's been used ten times, BPS will let me host a giveaway for my readers! See my Disclosure page for more details.



  1. Awesome designs and great review. I really love birds motive on your nails :)

    1. Thank you! I think it's a really pretty plate, the birds are so cute.

  2. That Chanel Peridot Polish really suits the peacock feathers :)

    1. Thanks, that's what I thought too. I wish I could have found a bluey green that would stamp over it to make it really peacocky.

  3. Both are really gorgeous :-D
