Hey there! As I promised last week, today I have my review of UberChic Beauty's Collection 16. As always, I have nothing but good things to say about this set of 3 new plates. Brittany has once again come up with a creative, eclectic collection. There's florals, negative space, layered, geometric images and more. Over the last week or so, I've done 6 looks with this collection that I'm sharing today. Hope you like them!
I truly had no issues with any of the images I used in this collection. I used a few different brands for stamping polish and a couple different stampers and everything worked. That's a sure sign of a good stamping plate! I did find I was most drawn to the florals in this collection - probably because UberChic always has lovely florals. As for the specs, the plates measure 9.5 x 14.5 cm with 17 x 21 mm images. But there are also a few other sizes. There's smaller images and text but also large buffet-style images.
Last week when I shared the KBShimmer Nauti By Nature collection, I said I was itching to wear Saved By The Shell again and I wasn't lying. I did this mani that night and wore it the next day. I paired it with stamping with Mundo de Unas Bronze. It was so pretty - and very work appropriate.
For my second mani I used the double image on this plate. I think of them as twisty chevrons. The image is super cool but I don't think my mani really does it justice though. Nevertheless, for them I used some opaque flakies from Born Pretty Store (Item 39389) over A England Jane Eyre and stamped with Mundo de Unas White.
To try out 16-02, I used a foil base over Trust Fund Beauty I Can't Even. I forget how much I like foils. I ordered a few more after doing these - which I'll also probably forget about but I hope not. I have NO idea where I bought these ones but the little jar says "Oil Slick" which might help you find them. I stamped the fine lined floral image with Mundo de Unas Black.
My second 16-02 mani is less flashy but still cool. I started with Illyrian Polish Unearthly Whisper (previously reviewed here). Over that I stamped the plaid with Mundo de Unas White and then the flowers with Joy. For the flower centers, I used Cult Nails New Day and a dotting tool. That was all topped with KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
I think 16-03 is my favourite of the three plates in this collection. There's so much variety! For my first mani I did a gradient of China Glaze Sun of a Peach and Red-y To Rave and stamped with Rica Polish Mellow Yellow. I wish my camera would photograph neons. This was so bright and sunny in real life.
And for my final mani I used some Hit The Bottle holographic stamping polishes over black (previously reviewed here). I was immediately drawn to the image I used with the green (Lucky Spark). It could frame any small image on your nail. Since I was sticking with images off this plate, I used the flower and stamped with Under The Strobe-berry Lights and layered it with the outline using Moonshine. The final photo shows how sparkly it was under direct light.
