Hey, everyone! Long time, no blog! It’s been…..a long month. Between illnesses, computer issues, and then the absolute worst. The death of a friend. One that is more like family. He had been my BF’s BFF for quite some time. They met when the BF transferred to another store at work. We loved him so much. Everyone did. There are so many amazing memories of him, pictures, videos. Yeah.
So that all has been keeping me away. Just trying to cope with what life throws at us.
I have finally gotten back to my items to review. Born Pretty and Beauty Bigbang probably think I fell off the face of the earth! Today’s item is one I was excited to get. I saw a couple other bloggers used it with great success.
Beauty Bigbang Clear silicone stamper Item # J2913TM
I got the stamper. I first tried stamping without doing anything to it. I was using Funky Fingers Dark Knight polish and Winstonia plate W403, which you can purchase on Amazon. Not much luck getting a clear image.

Next I rolled over it with a lint roller. No improvement. Washed it with warm water and Dawn dish soap. No improvement. Lightly rubbed non acetone polish remover on it. No improvement. Tried a different image, rolled the stamper, pushed straight down with the stamper, scraped with less pressure. No improvement. All I could think was- what the heck?! This worked for other people!!! Finally, I thought, let me try this with another stamper and see what happens. I picked up my Born Pretty Clear Silicone Stamper. Perfect image.

And there you have it. This stamper has worked for others with great success, but not for me. Here are some pics with the two different stampers on my nails over ILNP Sugar Coated from their Ultra Metallics line. The two fingers on the left are using the Beauty Bigbang stamper and the 2 on the right are using the Born Pretty stamper.
So what can I say about this item? It didn’t work for me and I’m pretty sure I tried every trick to get it to work. It HAS worked for others, so I guess it’s hit or miss!
If you’re not looking for a stamper, you can check out the other many items at www.beautybigbang.com They have a lot of great nail products at a fantastic price. I guess not every company has 100% excellent products. I’ve been using them for over about a year and everything else I have from them is pretty and/or works great!
