Winstonia Stamping Plates: Review & Pictures

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Hi folks!
Last week, I received a set of the brand spankin' new Winstonia plates. I tested them out thoroughly and couldn't wait to share with you my thoughts on this set.

These Winstonia plates come in a set of 20 for $15.99. They come packaged in a small box with plastic blue coverings and plastic backings, I did not find the edges to be sharp. All together there are 139 designs on these plates.

Here is a size comparison between the first Bundle Monster set (100s series), the third Bundle Monster set (300s), a Konad plate and a Winstonia plate. I couldn't find a ruler after rummaging around our place, but as you can see the full sized Winstonia image is only about 0.5 or 1 mm shorter than the third Bundle Monster series but just as wide, and much bigger than first BM series and the Konad plate. I would say that my nails are a bit longer than average but quite curved yet the full coverage images covered my nails completely.

There are many delicate images with thin etched lines, but in my experience they stamped very well. The trick is to work quickly though so that the polish does not have time to settle and dry in the etched image. Click the following images to enlarge.

I absolutely LOVE this set.  It is a perfect mix of  geometric designs (like the honeycomb, intricate lines on plate W112, etc), cute designs (fruit, mushrooms on W110), whimsical stand alone stamps (unicorn, peacock feather, Gameboy, penguin, etc) and themed stamps (bbq, the holiday themed plate W120). I think any nail stamp enthusiast could find many pleasing images in this set; whether you want a themed manicure or want to just try out new designs. This set is perfect.
