Nicole Diary Stamping Plate Swatch & Review

6:56 PM

Hello lovelies! Today I have my first Nicole Diary post for you! I've tested out 7 of their plates and I'm here to show you my results!

To test these I've taken each plate and stamped each image onto paper. I've used a mainstream black polish that tends to pick up most images. If I couldn't get the mainstream to pick up I used a red stamping polish. 

As you can see nearly all of these plates are amazing!! The last one gave me a couple of issues. The first image had those sad bald spots with both the mainstream and the stamping polish. The second red image is ok, I just couldn't pick it up using the mainstream polish. 

Over all I'm happy with these plates! They're affordable, and most are very well etched! 

I'll have some manicures using these soon I hope! My swatch schedule is a little insane and I don't have much nail art time at the moment. This must change because I need some of these images on my fingers! 

If you're interested in any of these plates or other nail art items from Nicole Diary you can find them on Amazon, EBay and aliexpress. 

What do you think of these? Do you own any plates from Nicole Diary? Let me know down below! 

Until next time! 

*sent for swatching/review. All opinions are honest and 100% my own based on my experiences.
