Stamping plate QA11 &stamper from KKCenterHK

Hello on this fine day, folks! It's cold, raining and it's the perfect day for blogging. I'm under a warm comfy blanket on the couch, enjoying a cup of tea and I can't think of a better way to write my blog.

I have a review for you today! Oh no, not another one! I got some goodies from KKCenterHK to share with you. The nice people over there sent me a stamping plate to review and they threw in a stamper & scraper as well! So let's have a look here...

I received the QA11 stamping plate and the mini stamper with a plastic scraper. On the website it says that it includes a metal scraper, but that's not the case. The scraper in the picture on the website is the same plastic one as I received.

The stamper isn't fit for my nails. It's pretty hard and it doesn't touch all of my nail. This picture shows how much of it covers my nail plate when I apply pressure. When I apply even more pressure, it bends the tip of my nail so much it would break. It doesn't feel comfortable and hurts my nail a little bit. Not good!

I tried using this stamper but the results were terrible, so the rest of my stamping in this review will be done with my soft XL stamper from Winstonia.

I did use the scraper that I received, it's actually pretty good. I was able to scratch the dried polish off after use.
The stamping plate came with a blue protection layer on it, you need to remove that before stamping or your designs won't transfer. I know I've forgotten this myself a time or two, so remember to do it!

There are a lot of fun images on this plate, they kinda remind me of winter sweaters! And I love the little kittens, as soon as I saw them, I had an idea for nail art!
This is my set up. I have my plate on the left, my scraper on the right and my Winstonia stamper just floating anywhere around this area. I use a piece of tissue paper to protect my work area.

I won't keep you any longer, go look at the pretty pretty nail art!
Kitties!!! I saw them frolicking in the grass as soon as I saw the QA11 plate. I really like this nail art, it's fresh, sweet & very cute. The kitties didn't transfer very well, the images on the plate are kind of pixellated so they didn't give a crisp image.

I used OPI Sparrow Me The Drama for the background, and Gosh Early Green for the grass. The cats were stamped with Mash black stamping polish.

I painted the grass and the birds by hand.
This is the sweater design I was referring to earlier. I used a Hema polish for the background and OPI Swimsuit... Nailed It! for stamping. The images are pretty deep so I was able to stamp with regular polish. Nice, right? Yeah, I figured you would like it!
