Review & Nail Arts: Pueen Cosmetics - 2013 Stamping Plates

Hello World...

How is it going darlings? I hope y'all are doing mighty fine!!!
It's a Review and Nail Art kind of day over here. Y'all know by now that when I say Nail Art, some sort of stamping has to be involved!!!
Well, Cue in the Pueen Stamping Plates  that were generously provided to me for review. 
These came in a set of 25 Stamping Plates. 
Before I continue on with this review, I must mention, one of my favorite things about this set of stamping plates is that each plate has FOUR Full Images!!! I don't think there has been a set of plates that came with full images on every plate in the collection. 


And now, here's a look at how the plates came to me. Each plate came in the Pueen plastic bag. 

As with most stamping plates, the plates also come with a Blue plastic cover one must remove before attempting to use the plate.

Behind each image plate is the Image of Pueen, and their Website. <--- Website in Italics because it's not really active right now.

And Now let's get to the Images!! PLEASE REMEMBER YOU CAN CLICK EACH OF THESE IMAGES TO VIEW THEM LARGER. 

Do You see what I mean when I stated that Each Plate has FOUR FULL Images?? I am really impressed by that! The little images didn't need their own plates, which sort of gives you more images for your buck!

The Curved bottoms makes each image perfect for a french tip design.

I Love this last plate so very much. 


Here's a comparison of the Pueen Plate with some other common stamping plates.

If you look at the above picture, you'll see that The Pueen Plates have images that are long and wide. They also have the curve at the bottom that makes each image appropriate for a french mani - Just like with Gals Plate, and Cheeky plates.
I felt the images in the Pueen plates were slightly longer than the gals plate images. Just a wee bit.

And the images on the Pueen plate are clearly wider and longer than the Red Angel (RA) plates.
And as much as I love my MASH Plates, I really wish they had the curve at the bottom that makes each image French Tip appropriate. 
Again, I'll mention that I love that each plate has Four Full Images, and then some small images on the corners.
NAIL ART 
Here are some manis I created with some  plates in this collection. 

First up is a recent one. With Pueen07

I Used China Glaze - Hang-Ten Toes as my base color and stamped with Pueen07. 

My Middle finger has OPI - Pirouette my whistle. And my Pointer I just added some rhinestones.  


Next is a mani with an image from Pueen21

Blue Polish is Sinful Colors - Sweet Nothing, Pink is Sinful colors - Sugar N Spice. 
Then I stamped with

And Lastly is a mani I created and have shown on the blog before... Check out the Post with this mani HERE
Image is From Pueen11


And That's it honeys!
My Overall Thoughts: I Love the Plates. The Images are pretty unique.Images are etched in well and my stamper picked them up well.
Remember you can use any of your opaque polishes as "stamping polishes". Basically, if a nail polish gets opaque in one coat, it should work for stamping!

If you're interested in this set of stamping plates by Pueen Cosmetics, they are currently AVAILABLE for purchase, so Please check them out on Amazon, Facebook, and their Website.
Based on the description of these plates on amazon, if you buy from them now, You'll be getting a plate storage case!!!

Feel free to share your thoughts with me.
Till Later, God Bless.
