A few weeks ago a friend, a wonderful generous little friend, was able to obtain OPI Spotted for me. I was so excited to get it that I put it on immediately. You might recognize the mani in the shot below, but here is my best shot over Wet n Wild The Gold and the Beautiful. None of these are superb, but I wanted to share.
I've had these stamping comps on my mind for a while. I thought I would go ahead and throw them in today as well.
I did a comparison stamp of all three of them with the same image Konad M69 on a clear glass cabochon. They work pretty well on these, because the surfaces are somewhat flat. My nails unfortunately are not. So these do not stamp the same on my nails, each have a different purpose when it comes to stamping.
The MagnoNails is usually my favorite for full nail images. As you can see, there is no polish left on it. It completely transfers. (the reflection on the glass messes up the image on the cabochon). The Dashica is my next favorite for full nail images. It curves around my curvy nails and gets the tip/corners. Konad is only good for me for small images because it cannot curve around and catch all my nails. Think trying to stamp half a marble and that's like stamping my nails. Not literally, but it sure seems that way! lol
Then I did a comp of the several different tiger/zebra patterns I have. I used the Dashica stamper for all of these. Are you surprised to see that the Bundle Monster plate is nicer looking than the Konad? (Don't ask me why I used one of the messiest colors for this test...oh, I guess it was so it would show up better.)
And finally, I received my DRK-B plate from Ninja. I had heard there were problems with this plate so I took her for a test drive. Why not test my stampers too. Here is my test resluts (with my fancy labeling).
Just looking at the full sheet, the strongest clearest images, every time were marked XL which is the MagnoNails stamper. The Dashica is right behind it. Konad was variable, but again, I can only use it for some of my images on my curvy nails.
The other good news was that all of my images on the DRK-B plate stamped just fine. :) I hope you have the same luck.
