Today I have two stamping plates from Aiyoohéhé to show you. I was recently sent a few plates of my choice to play around with, and today I have two plates from their Fairytale range.
This was my first experience using plates from Héhé (the shortened version), however I had read so much about them prior to trying them myself I was super excited to get my little hands on them. Always, I read great reviews about excellent quality plates with wonderful images! Well you can go right ahead and add my glowing review to the list! Yup, they are as good as I had heard they’d be!
Please excuse my plate photography skills. I’m sure I’ll get there one day 😉
The first plates I have today are Fairytale 005 and 002. The Fairytale plates are both xxl size and rectangular, and are stuck onto a solid plastic backing. The back-side of the plate carries the Héhé trademark which is important to note to make sure you’re buying genuine plates.
I adore all the patterns on both of these plates so loved just that fact about them immediately. But then, I actually stamped with them, and oh ho! They are a delight to use. The engraving is perfection and the most perfect depth to give you a clean and crisp image. I always find that my stamping was a little ‘un-crisp’ and I always put it down to my poor skill and likely my stamper. I use a Creative Shop stamper, and just thought it was something I’d have to live with. However, using my Creative stamper, I manged to get perfect images, every single time with these plates!
I have a few quick manicures I created using these plates to show you too!
I wanted to create something subtle and romantic using Fairytale 002, so I created this look which I quite liked.
I applied one quick coat of Essie Birthday Suit to my naked nails to help them look a bit fresher. I then used Konad White to do the stamping.
For this manicure I again used Fairytale 002.
I applied two coats of Picture Polish Douceur and used Hit The Bottle Purple Reign to stamp with.
For this look I used Fairytale 005 and stamped over a white base, Pretty Serious Presence, using Celestial Cosmetics Pitch.
I then used some tints from Powder Perfect, Medieval (red) and Illuminate (yellow) to fill the image in and create a bright, fun look.
And my final look, and most likely my favourite of these four was done using Fairytale 005 again.
My base is Pahlish Stopped Watch and I stamped using both A England Virgin Queen and Emily de Molly Green in a gradient style.
Which of these four is your favourite?
Héhé stamping plates are available from the Aiyoohehe official site, the ONLY site you’ll find genuine Héhé products. There are a lot of rip-offs out there so make sure you buy the real thing to get the best quality! I might add, that the customer service is outstanding and they are really lovely to communicate with.
I have some more Héhé reviews coming up over this week, as well as diving head first into some Dance Legend reviews! Brace yourselves!
