Winstonia Stamping Plates Review

Today I'll be reviewing the Winstonia store 20pc Nail Art Stamping Plates - First Generation released in 2013. You can find them here I haven't used every single stamp on here (that would take a lot of time) but I did a few looks with them and they are just so cute!

The set comes with 20 different stamping plates. Stamper and scraper sold separately. The set is $15.99 and I will have a coupon code at the end for you guys to get 10% off!!!

This was my first time stamping and I must say it went pretty well. I had a few mistakes but I think I'm getting the hang of it (form your opinions below.) Haha. As suggested by a lot of my followers I used an old gift card to scrape the excess polish off the plate so not to scratch up the plates and it works quite well! Since I didn't already have a stamper and didn't want to wait to order one. I ran to Sally Beauty Supply and picked up the Salon Express Nail Stamping Kit, which seems to work fine but I don't have any other experience to compare it to.

If you're new to stamping or looking for a new set, try these Winstonia ones out!!!! And why not you can get 10% off! There is a great variety of stamps from, holidays, flowers, animal prints, summer and spring designs, hearts and even a cute little unicorn!! I'm very happy with this being my first set and I can't wait to do more looks with them! Enjoy the designs I've done so far!

Here are the plates themselves. They come packaged tightly in a nice little box and blue film to protect them (which I already removed.)

This is the first look I did with them. I used the lollipop and cupcake design from plate W117 as part of my Autism Awareness design. See full post here.

My second look. I love this one!! So cute! Used Lime Crime "Parfait Day", China Glaze "Razzle Me Dazzle Me" and hot air balloon stamp again from plate W117.

Lastly I did this sort of bubble design. I used OPI "Don't Pretzel My Buttons" and Nicole by OPI "Light A Candle" with stamping plate W112. I'm not sure how much I like this just because I don't think Don't Pretzel My Buttons goes at all with my skin tone but the design is cute!

I still need some practice but it's coming along.

COUPON CODE: LUSTERLACQUER at checkout to receive 10% off the stamping plate set ONLY. Code valid through May 31, 2013.

  1. Great post!
    How do you get companies to send you products for review? I am very interested in knowing how did you get started for that.

    1. Hi. They always contact me. I've never contacted companies. I don't know I think it's just kind of tacky. But I don't know if that's a normal thing to do for some people. But I don't blog so that I can get free stuff and do reviews. If someone is interested in me that's great but I don't go out there looking for reviews. If I never get another contact again, I would have no problem with that. I guess once you get popular enough and get a contact they see that you are available to do reviews so more people will approach you. I've turned down reviews too. If I don't feel like I would support that company and buy from it myself I won't do a review.

  2. They are doing a great job marketing these plates because I want them!!!!


I love to hear from you guys! Leave me a thought!
