UberChic Beauty Stamping Plates--Review

Good morning Stampaholics! I'm sure a lot of you have heard about UberChic Beauty--the new brand of stamping plates that just launched about a week or so ago. Today I'll be reviewing them and sharing a few manicures I did with the plates.

UberChic Beauty is a small company based in Colorado. They sell stamping plates, glitter dust, and magical dust. There are 2 plate collections available right now. Each collection includes 3 plates. A collection is $24.99, which comes to about $8.33 per plate. I chose collection 2 to review. The plates come with the blue protective film that is to be removed before use.

Here's a size comparison next to a MoYou London plate. The UberChic Beauty plate is 9.5 cm x 14.5 cm. The UberChic designs are 1.7 x 2.1 cm (MoYou London designs are 1.5 x 2 cm). The plates have a paper backing to them kind of like what's on the back of a Bundle Monster plate

Here are a few manicures I did using the plates. 

Watercolor mani using OPI Sheer Tints (I Can Teal You Like Me, I'm Never Amberassed, Be Magentale With Me, and Don't Violet Me Down) over a white base stamped using UC plate 2-01 in Mundo de Unas Black.

China Glaze Liquid Leather stamped using UC plate 2-01 in A-England Princess Tears. Middle nail is A-England Princess Tears stamped using UC plate 2-01 in Mundo de Unas Black.

OPI I Sing In Color stamped using UC plate 2-02 in Essie Good As Gold. Glitter is OPI All Sparkly and Gold.

I didn't have any trouble picking up the images. The etching of the plates are great quality and didn't rip up my cotton when I cleaned the images. Some of the images are really large like the heart image on the 1st plate and the hibiscus image on the 3rd plate so you'll only be able to see a part of the image once stamped on your nail, but majority of the images are patterns so that wouldn't happen often. I was really pleased with the quality of these plates and there's a good variety of images available to choose from. You can purchase these plates here for $24.99. There is a $5.99 flat shipping rate on US orders and $15 for international orders.
