So a few weeks ago I saw that She Sells Seashells had started selling the Uber mat and then to top it off they began selling their awesome unique stamping plates. I found this site when I received 2 of their anchor charms in last months Meebox, if you wanted to check that post out I'll leave a link here. .
If that wasn't enough to make me squeal and dance around my living room they have now began selling all 5 of the Uber chic collections each consisting of 3 plates per collection. All I can say is these plates definitely live up to the hype, they are amazing I had no problems picking up images and love how unique and different all the designs are.
As I said the last couple of days have been rather hard to do my nails so unfortunately I haven't got around to making any decals with the Uber mat yet. But I am still in love this thing is amazing and I can already tell it is going to help my nail art improve to a better standard, well that's what I'm hoping anyway. But I did use the Uber mat to check to see if two colours matched, I love that I can now do this rather than just going ahead and maybe having to change the colour scheme of a manicure half way threw. Here is a little sneak preview of a manicure that I'm working on at the moment, I would love to know your opinion, do you think these two colours match?
So lets get into the stamping plates, most of these were brought from She sells seashells however I had to purchase the Halloween plate directly from Uber Chic as it was not being stocked on the other site. I saw lots of manicures and swatches for this plate and I knew I needed it in my ever growing collection. I am not the greatest stamper in the world so I decided to take scans of the plates so you can see the images in there spooktacular glory. I did stamp some of the images onto some nail pop sticks just to give you an idea of what they would look like on the nail. Can I just say one thing look at the cute little spider with the top hat, he is a huge reason I needed this plate. It took just over a week to get to me and I didn't incur any extra charges, so I was very pleased with the service.
The rest of the plates I did purchase from She sells seashells, once I had placed my order it only took 2 days to receive my package. I thought that was fantastic and when I ordered Collection 5 that only took 2 days again, such quick postage. I'm highly impressed with this company such great customer service and quick postage, I will be using this site for all my future Uber Chic or nail art needs.
The first plate I placed in my basket had to be the fairytale plate, not only is this the name of this here blog but I am a huge fan of fairytales. Ever since I was little I loved my mum reading me the various tales of heroes and villains, I'm carrying on the same tradition with my daughter it was just the other night we were reading jack and the beanstalk, Lexi found my giant voice very amusing. Another reason I brought this plate is because I love the show Once upon a time and I can just imagine the awesome manicures I could create to go with the show,
Next up is the geek plate as you all know I'm a huge fan of nail polish, I love to bake and I'm a full time mummy. But something you don't know is I am a huge geek, I love playing on the Xbox especially the Batman Arkham series. I am also a huge lover of The Big bang theory so the minute that I saw this plate say Bazinga I was hooked, the awesome manicures that can be created from this plate are endless and I can't wait to get started and see my ideas become reality.
So there they are in all there glory, I thought that would be me done for a while but then She Sells Seashells began selling the Uber chic collections. They have all 5 in stock right now and for a very long time I have been wanting collection 5, purely for the bumble bee image in the top right corner. I mean who can say no to them they are so frigging adorable, so many great bumble bee ideas buzzing through my head right now. Once I received the plates I fell in love with just about every image on there, they are more summer or spring appropriate but I wont say no to a pretty floral pattern in winter.
Anyone who is thinking of purchasing these plates I highly recommend you do I had no problems with picking up the images and they came out crisp and beautiful. Now lets get into the prices and postage of this lovely lot, for the individual themed plates it's £11 per plate. Some people may think that's on the pricey side but for how unique these plates are I think it is well worth it. The collections are going for £18, which I think is a fantastic price for three full size plates. Postage from She sells seashells is based off weight:
