Today I have something awesome to share with you all. A while back, KKCenterHk contacted me and asked if I’d like to review some products of theirs. I said HECK YES! Best of all, KKCenterHk let me choose which two products I’d like to review. I chose two of their stamping plates. Thus, I’ve got a nice review and some product shots to share with you today.
Before I start, I just wanted to highlight these stamps from the package sent to me. Aren’t they adorable? I’ve kept the packaging just because they’re so cute. Anyway…
The two plates I chose are numbers 52 and 53. I loved that they're chock full of letters. I've always wanted to stamp with letters! The possibilities are endless!
Being the nice people that they are, the KKCenterHk team sent me a bonus stamper and scraper. Though I love my Konad stamper, I'm always open to trying new stuff.
Once out of the packaging, it’s obvious that the plates are of the same size as Konad plates (or Bundle Monster plates for that matter). They’re also covered in a thin film, which I’ve removed here. Unlike the Konad plates (yet like the BM plates), they aren’t lined with cardboard and are extremely sharp. I laid them on some paper towels to do this though and had no problems.
To start my review, I layered on two coats of Essie Watermelon, a vibrant hot pink crème. Because Watermelon is so vibrant my camera skews the color a bit as usual. In reality it's much more pink. Watermelon usually wears terribly on me – I don’t know why, it just chips like a b*tch – but I thought it would make the perfect underwear for my stamping!
I then stamped using Sally Hansen White On and Jordana Black and both plates. The scraper was much better than my Konad scraper, or even a credit card. It didn’t scrape the plates, and with light pressure it removed all of the polish on my design. The stamper was a different story. The one I used was much less flexible and sticky than my previous one. I ended up switching to my double-ended Konad one halfway through the design.
This was the first time I stamped with Jordana Black, and I have to say I’m pretty happy with how opaque it is! I call these my typewriter nails, though they just as easily could’ve been alphabet soup nails with a different color scheme. Oh well, maybe next time! (:
Overall I have to say I’m very satisfied with my attempt at stamping and with the KKCenterHK products. Though the stamper was a bust, the rest of the products were pretty great.
