B Loves Plates B.08 Feather Fever Stamping Plate - Swatches & Review

Tuesday, 23 May 2017

This post has definitely been a long time in the making. Sometimes I do mani either for a challenge or just for me and then I stick it in a folder ready for whenever it is I get around to reviewing the plate the image has come from.  That is what happened with the B Loves Plates B.08 Feather Fever Stamping Plate.  I remember the day that I received the plate I did the first mani with it, and then for whatever reason never got back around to this plate.  I would like to say that this doesn't happen too often but sadly it happens a lot.  I get side tracked with new plates all the time.  I now leave all new plates out and don't put them away until I have finished swatching and reviewing them.  Might seem crazy but it makes me use them quicker because I can't stand having stamping plates laying around.  Anyway, getting very side tracked here.   Feather Fever....

This is the first mani I did using this plate.  I remember having lots of issues getting the finer details of the larger feathers in the centre of the plate to transfer.  For my base I used OPI Alpine Snow and then stamped the neon pink and orange stamping polishes from Colour Alike (which I purchased from B Loves Plates).

Now to my most recent mani.  I just got my hands on the Color Club Pop Play Collection (which I will be swatching and reviewing soon) and I couldn't resist sponging three of the colours on for my base.  I used Play Date, All Dolled Up and Party Teal Dawn.   I then stamped using Mundo de Unas Black stamping polish.

Overall I do like this plate, although I don't think it's overly unique.  I feel like I have seen some of these images on some other plates.  That being said, I have had this plate for quite some time so maybe this plate did the images first and other brands did similar ones after?  Who knows.  I do like the images either way.  As I mentioned earlier, I did have some issues transferring the finer details.  I am not sure if that was a user issue, stamper, polish etc.  

The Fever Feather Stamping Plate is available now from B Loves Plates.


  1. Ooh I'm excited to see the color club review as that mani is amazing!
    I love the look of this plate but then again feel it is a tad samey to others I've seen around. Either way you always make the manis you create look so individual so I'm sure it wouldn't matter if you had loads similar images.

    1. I'm definitely excited to swatch the Color Clubs, but it might be a little while off. I have a few other things I need to do first, plus there is 12 polishes. Eek. CC also have a new collection out at the moment which I am sooooo tempted to buy.

      Thank you Vicky. You really are the kindest person. I do think that the images are quite samey to other plates around, but I'm really not sure who did them first. I'm sure there are quite a few brands that have similar images to each other these days.
