The Queens Critique: It Girl Nail Art – Plate IG118


Good Morning Sunshine! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. As for me, weeeeeeelllll….my plans at the last minute changed on Friday which effected my entire weekend. I did however get a lot accomplished! Saturday, my girls and I ran some errands including returning my daughters violin as she decided that she didn’t want to play anymore but instead focus only on chorus which warmed my heart as I too sung all throughout 4-12 grade. We also did a weeks worth of grocery shopping and didn’t end up with a cart full of snacks. YAY for me!! And I was finally able to RELAX and binge watch Grey’s Anatomy as if I had never seen it before….lol, it’s only like one of my favorite shows. It was an amazing weekend of nothing. My son’s basketball team went 1-2 in their tournament but I hear they played their hearts out and had fun which is all I ask for.

So here we are back for another amazing week of reviews and today I have a doozy. Today, I have the newest plate from It Girl Nail Art, IG118. This plate highlights multiple images and symbols representing LGBTQ, political activism and marginalized groups.

I do want to point out that I’m still learning reverse stamping, so while the Autism Awareness mani didn’t turn out as perfectly as I wanted it to, that was not fault of the plate, it was complete user error. I was able to get the 4 full nail images done but wanted to do my research regarding the flags to ensure that color placement is done correctly. If you have any suggestions, please leave them in the comments.

**All swatches are done using Commitment Issue Peel-off Base Coat by Vapid and Tonic Topper by Tonic (shiny) and Matte Me topcoat by Jior Couture (matte). Swatch photos are taken using artificial lights.**

Overall Thoughts

Application: plate it etched very well. No issues with pick up using soft, squishy stamper

Size: plate – 12cm x 6cm

Price: $13.50

Availability: current

Overall: I love this plate. I love the images and how easy is it to work with. I love how there are single images to use with full nail images and that you reverse stamp or leadlight with them. I can definitely see myself using this plate a lot more as I have a ton of manis planned in my head once I do my research so be on the look on my IG in the upcoming weeks.
