Review of Chez Delaney Big Image Plate

As promised, here are the mani's I made using the Chez-Delaney big image plate. I know its the Fall season but I'm just not ready for dark mani's yet. I really do prefer brighter colors :)

Products used: Sally Hansen Golden Cinnabar, stamped with Konad Wine Red.


And here's the second mani. I always wanted to try out the cow design. What do you think?

Products used: Color Club "Where's the Soiree", Konad Wine Red, WnW White (base).
Quick Review: I hope Chez-Delaney doesn't mind that I give a quick review. I won this product in a contest and it was provided to me for free. But I've had a lot of questions about it so here goes.

Dimensions & Design: The plate is approximately 10x12 inches and the metal is similar to other stamping plates. It is attached to a black plastic holder and has images similar to Konad images M44-M81 and S06 (minus M46 & M47).

How does it stamp? The stamping is similar to Konad & other stamping systems. I was being very gentle at first because I didn't want to ruin my design or the image plate. I used on old credit card as I do with my other image plates to avoid scratches. I was able to use the same stamping polishes and the pick-up was the same. The plate is obviously larger than other image plates, so it was great to see all of the images at once.

Overall: It's great for organization because you have one big plate instead of all the individual plates. I liked being able to view all of the images at once. This provided a lot of options which is great if you're a visual person. Or maybe not so great if you're indecisive like me :) The only change I would make is to make the plate a little sturdier. It had a slight flexibility which I did not expect. Overall I think it's a great buy for 56 euros, compared to purchasing all of the plates individually.

Thanks for stopping by!

  6. Awesome stamping. I find when I stamp that when I scrape the extra polish off it can run to the end of the plate...do you have that problem? I also use a credit card to scrape with.

  9. thanks ladies :)

    @LWTT - i have more control because the plate is so big. if i'm working in the middle, the polish stays in the middle. but if working at the edge of the plate it has the potential to run off the plate. i just put a paper towel underneath to catch any extra polish. this is also my procedure with regular plates. i stamp over a paper towel, so with the scraping motion i rub the credit card over the paper towel. hope this makes since, it sounds kinda wacky, lol.
