Vivid Lacquer Stamping Plate - VL001

One of the most interesting things to come out of the indie movement have been custom stamping plates. I've shown Vivid Lacquer polishes on here before, but one of the unique things about VL is that Anni also makes her own stamping plates. This post will be showing off Vivid Lacquer's VL001 plate (to the best of my ability, anyway -- I don't stamp often, haha).

There are four full nail images and five smaller images on this plate. I've used all of the full nail images in manicures here and I've also included a photo of the plate, so you can see the small images.

Please bear in mind that I am not a skilled stamper. Any imperfections with the stamping were totally my fault. These plates are very high quality and I had zero problems picking up the image from the plate.



This first manicure uses the x's and o's full nail image. I used Konad Special White and stamped it on top of OPI My Very First Knockwurst. This is one of my favorite images on the plate and I love the way this white and nude combination looked.



This manicure was made using the plaid image on the plate. I stamped with Konad Special Black over China Glaze No Plain Jane. This image would be great to multi-stamp with. You could create a really awesome plaid pattern with different colors!



These pawprints were stamped using Color Club Revvvolution. The base here is Cult Nails Scandalous. I will probably be using this to do a manicure on myself for my dog's birthday! (I'm totally obsessed with my dog. No judgements!)



This is my other favorite image on the plate. Full nail skull and crossbones?! HECK YEAH! This is stamped with Urban Outfitters Eyes Wide Shut (a black creme) and is done on top of HITS Zeus. Since Zeus is an awesome holo, you guys get a bonus picture of this one... :D




Here's the best photo that I could get of the plate without including distracting reflections. I need to figure out a good plate photographing setup or something! You can see all of the images here including the smaller images.


This is a photo I grabbed from my Instagram showing how large these images are. The full nail images are huge, much bigger than my Bundle Monster, Shany, or Konad images. I had no problems getting them to cover my entire nail. Awesome!


Vivid Lacquer stamping plates are sold via the Vivid Lacquer Etsy shop. I hope to have my VL002 post ready soon to show you, and I believe VL003 and VL004 are in the works currently, so like Vivid Lacquer on Facebook to receive updates on those!

Some of the products in this post were provided to me for review.

    1. You can sort the shop using the categories at the left on the page! If there is no stamping plate category, she is probably sold out. Keep up with VL on Facebook for restock dates and times! :)

  12. Ok, so not that this is a 'set up' per sa, but I know how tough these plates can be to photograph, because basically you're taking photos of mirrors.

    The other day I took photos of a set of MASH plates, laying down on my bed, with each plate in front of me laying on a background, with a piece of black bristle board literally over my head, angling the camera to catch only the black background and just barely NOT the camera. I got surprisingly good results.

  13. I can barely handle how much fabulousness is in this post. I just started stamping, started with mediocre plates, and full-nail designs are what I want the most. I am surprised that so many are not wide enough for my thumbs--I have tiny fingers like a girl, not a woman.
