Born Pretty Store Plate M79 review

I have for review today plate M79 from Born Pretty Store.  It has four full sized nail designs and one abstract design.

Born Pretty Store Plate M79

Born Pretty Store Plate M79.  It has a cross hatch pattern, dots, clouds, a floral rose design and a swirly-floral design.  This is a photo of the plate still in its packaging and the protective film.

Also, this plate does not have any sort of cardboard backing leaving the metal edges sharp and hard to grip.  I taped some blue masking tape on the back to reduce the sharp edge. 

Here's how each of the full-sized stamps look as manicures: 

Base Color: Sinful Colors Smokin' 
Stamping Color: Pure Ice Silver Mercedes 

This pattern did not cover my full nail.  My nails are too long for any type of stamping using a full nail pattern. I had to do a double stamp.  It looks fine at first glance but if you look closer you can see where the stamp is off.  It's not a fault of the plate but user error. 

The nails on my right had are shorter and I need to shortened the nails on my left hand.  The patterned covered better but not completely.  I did a french tip to cover where it did not reach. 

Base Color: Layla Softouch Effect 07 Queen Bordeaux but with top coat.
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White. 

The delicate print in the rose as well as the dots were a little hard to pick up.  I think it might have been an error when I swiped the polish.  

Base Color: Illamasqua Nomad
Stamping Color: Winmax Black

Again, I did a fine french tip because the dots did not reach. 

Base Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue Away 
Stamping Color: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White

Final thoughts? 

This plate has a really good number of patterns that can work with many different color combinations.  Definitely, pick this plate up if you are looking for an easy way to make dots or cross hatch.  My only complaint is that the designs on the plate itself are etched too deeply making it hard to swipe and pick up the stamps clearly.  I had to swipe it twice or do a test stamp on paper.
