I'm going to start this post with a little bit of a story/a mini rant. Prior to the release of this plate (and the Mermaid Life and Collection 12 plates which I will be reviewing for you shortly) I was contacted by Uberchic to see if I wanted to swatch and review these plates. Nothing out of the ordinary with that, and they were sent super quick. I stalked the tracking on a daily basis (I like to be prepared for packages - I'm like a kid at Christmas!) and my package arrived in Australia on October 11. Now usually I receive packages within 2-3 days of them arriving in the country but 2 weeks later I still hadn't received my package. Lots of phone calls to Australia Post and even to Customs and no one was able to tell me anything, other than hand-balling me off). So I gave up hope and emailed Brittany to let her know. Brittany and the Uberchic team have amazing customer service (and that is being said both as a paying customer and as a blogger) which is another reason I love their brand so much. Thank you Brittany for being so great and understanding. Fast forward to three weeks later and my package finally arrived!! Well done Australia Post (please note the sarcasm there)!
Ok enough ranting about a horrid postal service, and lets talk about the greatness that is the new Uberchic Texture-licious Mini Stamping Plate. I love the images on this plate. I couldn't help but go for double stamping for both of the manis I did. There is something about this plates that says double stamp or layer images.

For my first mani I couldn't go past the dry brush looking image. I am a huge fan of dry brushing and the have a plate that makes it look so even is perfect for me! You can bet you will be seeing me use this image a lot. For my base I used Sienna Byron Bay Breeze and Powder Perfect's Black and White Stamping Polishes.
For my second mani I was trying to go for a marble look. Not quite what I had in mind, but I still really like the result. I really need to find some grey stamping polishes! For this mani I used OPI Alpine Snow and then mixed Powder Perfect's Black and White Stamping Polishes.
I really love this plate. I can see me using it a lot. Like with all Uberchic plates this one stamps beautifully and I had no issues with it at all.
The Texture-licious Mini Stamping Plate is available now from Uberchic Beauty.
