Pueen Stamping Kit review
While browsing through my various Facebook groups I've come across many people asking about the Starter stamping kit from Pueen. Since I was one of the lucky ones to find this kit at my sort of local Wal-mart I decided to test it out and share my results with all of you. Since purchasing this kit I've noticed that more and more people are beginning to find it in their stores so if it's not at yours yet, be patient it will get there. This is my first experience with Pueen products but after using this kit they won't be my last. Read on to find out why.
The starter kit contains 1 image plate with 12 patterns, a super squishy stamper, a plastic scraper and 2 stamping polishes. (1 black, 1 white) Basically, everything you need to give stamping a try. I personally think this is a great bang for your buck with its $10.00 price tag.
As you can see this image plate has a variety of images covering several themes. I opted to use images with varying thickness to the lines so I could really see just how well it worked. For my base color, I used Sinful Colors Eccentricity from the newly released Color Eccentric Collection.
I found the polishes to be extremely opaque and easy to work with. I needed less polish on the image plate before scraping than I typically use and was still able to get the entire image fully covered. That's huge for me since I have this irrational fear that I'll run out of a product and not be able to get it again, plus let's be honest, I'm cheap and like my products to last as long as they can.
Each image that I tried picked up nicely on the stamper and transferred effortlessly onto my nails. I did notice that the polish seemed to stay wet for longer than my other stamping polishes so I would wait an extra minute before applying top coat. That way you can avoid smearing your image.
Along with the starter kit, Wal-mart also carries a single image plate from Pueen that retails for about $6.00 which I also snagged but haven't had a chance to use yet. Overall I'm very impressed with this kit, I feel that it is a great investment for any nail artist whether you're just starting out or have been stamping for years. I also feel that this is the most success I've had with stamping as far as crisp clean lines and full images.
Have you spotted this kit in stores yet or picked one up yourself? I'd love to hear your experiences and thoughts. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!
