It's Saturday, It's Saturday! Hope you're getting some rest, and enjoying your weekend?
Today, I have a review for you. Yeppers! I'm reviewing some Jumbo Nail Art Image Plates (Also know as XL plates), by Cheeky from Amazon.
Thanks to the stamping group I'm in on facebook, I learned about Cheeky plates a couple of days ago. I didn't have to be told twice because I loved what I saw! Shipping was free (because I have Prime), and my plates got to me two days after I ordered.
Cheeky is a new brand (to me, and most people), and most of the plates they have for sale are going out of stock really quickly! I'm so glad I got these ones, and I hope they bring back the plates that are currently out of stock.
These ones I got came in a pack of three for $19.99. The Plates I have are Plates A, C, and H.

Each plate came with the blue protective cover that was really easy to remove.
Here's plate A. Which is my favorite! This is the only plate in the bunch that is full of different - no duplicate images.
This next one is Plate C. I absolutely like the designs on this plate too, but As you can see, almost all the images have a "Mirrored image" next to it. By "Mirrored image", I mean, one design faces the right, while the next one faces the left. I would have preferred if all the designs were completely different. But I can't complain too much. It's all good.
Finally, we have Plate H. This one contains small images, not full images like the other two plates. I like this one because of the many floral designs, but once again, this plate also has mirrored images.
Oh and here is something I find amazing/interesting. Each plate had a padding behind it. I love how sturdy the pad made the plates feel. No worry about the plates cutting me. Lovely!
Here are some comparison with other plates.
First, I decided to compare the images on the Cheeky plate with my Konad plate and Red Angel Plate.
As you can see, the Cheeky images are Bigger. Which I absolutely LOVE!
Next I compared the image on the Cheeky Plate next to an image from my Bundle Monster (set B) plate.
Once again, the Cheeky images are bigger.

I then Decided to try out one of my plates by stamping some of the images on it. I figured if one plate stamped well, I would trust that the other plates were good too. I Chose plate C.
The Plate was completely Stained when I got done. Lol.. Sheeeshhh... Red is not a forgiving color! And my scrapper totally needs to chill out with the scratching! Lol.. I might need to start using Old Credit cards to scrape.
Here are the Images I stamped.
Here are some more detailed view of the images.
I must say, I'm very impressed with these plates. Even the tiniest dots in each design transfers!!! Look how well this transferred!
The complexity of the designs amazes me and excites me! I absolutely love these! Once again, no patching... just about everything transfers.
Images are big enough for those of you with long nail beds or really long nails.
Gotta look into using old credit cards for real though. I'm not liking the lines that the Konad scrapper leaves on my plate.
Ok ladies, That's it for my review of the Jumbo Nail Art Image Plates by Cheeky.
I am excited with these XL plates, and I love how detailed the images are. Complex designs that actually transfer onto the stamper and then onto the nails.
The only complaint I have with these images is interestingly the same reason why I love them. Lol..The Images are Huge! So huge in fact that some images are too big for my Konad stamper. I currently don't have to worry about investing in an XL stamper, but if I ever let my nails grow long, I'll look into getting one.
If your nails are long, it might do you good to get an XL stamper. Which I believe can only be bought from Magno nails. I hope that soon, other sellers will have an option to buy an XL stamper. Until then though, if you need one, grab it from Magno nails.
These images were a good deal IMO. Magno Nails actually had these plates for $21 EACH! And I got 3 for $19.99?! Boy! No wonder they're going out of stock quickly!
Hurry and grab yours before it's all gone.
P.S: You can see FULL details of each image on the plates on the amazon product page. I didn't think it was necessary to show each image when they are on amazon already.
Tell me what you think about these? Do you have any XL plates? Are you getting some now?
Till Later my loves. God Bless.
