It Girls Stamping Plates 101, 102 & 103 Review & Nail Art

Press Sample

This is a long overdue post and was a blast to play with. Due to my time constraints, I usually don’t have a ton of time to do nail art, so stamping plates are perfect for me. It Girls sent over 3 plates for me to play with and try out, and I have to tell you – these are some gorgeous plates with cute designs that were easy to use!

I received all 3 plates and I did a couple random manis using the 3 plates.

First up we will look at It Girls Fashion Plate 101! This one gave me a little trouble and I couldn’t pick up images very well. Others have had great success and I’m still a VERY new stamper, so it very well could have been user error. It was a beautiful plate though and I did lift some images just fine.

The shop owner was amazing and walked me through some simple steps to help me out, but some images still didn’t want to play with me. Betty’s Beauty Bombs did a fabulous mani with this plate as did a few other bloggers, which is why I’m leaning to me being new at it. Below are a few examples of Betty’s Beauty Bombs using this plate in multiple manis with great success:

It Girls Fashion Plate 102 was a breeze and I got some gorgeous mani’s with this baby! I was able to lift each image easily and transfer it with zero issues. Below are 3 mani’s I did using It Girls Fashion Plate 102.

I saved the best for last. It Girls Fashion Plate 103 has gotten the most love from me. I did 4 mani’s using this plate and each one still gets me looking at the photos and saying “wow” and I’ve used it several times since the initial photos were taken.

Each image lifted with absolute ease, even for someone like me. Full images stamped onto my nail with perfection and I was rather impressed.

Overall I was impressed with these 3 plates. While plate 101 didn’t work amazingly well for me, I am big enough to admit it was probably me. It was also extremely hot each day I attempted that particular plate so that could have played a factor in it. Plates 102 and 103 however were absolutely amazing. If you can only buy 1 plate though, plate 103 is my top choice. It’s amazing.

Each plate has 10 images, so between the 3 there are 30 different stamping images to choose from. For each photo I used Bundle Monster black stamping polish over a variety of polishes and Girly Bits What A Rush Top Coat to finish the mani. My stamper was a squishy Bundle Monster stamper as well.

Price: $13.50 Each

Loving the polish colors and the stamps. Worth all of the effort of getting it done.

I love stamping. These plates have some neat designs, too. Sometimes, I’ve found that a particular plate won’t play well with a certain texture of polish, or even a particular type of stamper. Sometimes, switching up the tools will help a plate play nicer.

Lisa Heath September 18, 2015 - 9:51 am

Yeah that’s probably what the issue was with 101. I’m so newish at it though, I don’t have other stampers really to try to switch it up with

Heather September 18, 2015 - 10:40 am

I bet you have the best nails in the land :) I bought a little cheap nail art stamper/stickers all that jazz I am inspired to try it out now hehe
