Dashica's Beauty Big Image Plate SdP-A

Hello everyone! Today I have a review of Dashica's Beauty SdP Big image plate A. If you're not familiar with Dashica's Beauty, it's the same owner as Shirley's Nail-Art & Water Decals. Yes, the lady with the cute image plates. Shirley introduces 7 new plates with 42 designs. Here are a few of the mani's I've done using plate A.

The swirl image is one of my favorite designs. It's a like a water marble without the mess. For the base color I used Finger Paints Aren't You Glad-iolouis topped off with Konad white.

There's also a Hello Kitty image. I stamped with white, then filled in HK's head, then stamped again with Konad blue. The base colors are Zoya Sweet & Color Club Take me to Your Chateau.

I also tried Hello Kitty in black.

A full heart design. I used China Glaze Something Sweet & Emotion . The lighting is bad in this pic and makes the image appear faded. It also stamped well.

A closer view to show details.

As you can see, the image plate works very well. Its about 8x6 inches and has 42 designs. Some of them are duplicates to allow you to stamp mirror images. The designs are larger than Konad & BM's, so it's great if you have large-r nails. I usually have to stamp my thumbs twice with Konad plates, but these are large enough to cover my entire thumb.

The images are pretty, feminine and offers a good variety. I like that most of them are full nail designs with a few French tips (half-designs). The plate stamps similar to Konad's and I had no issues with stamping or image transfer.

This is a sample plate, but the original plates will have 2 holes that allow you to organize them in a ring binder. I almost forgot Shirley added a cute little plastic/paper backing to the plate.

Plate size comparison. Konad, large plate & SdP big plate.

View of the sample plate. The actual plate will have two holes so that you can store them in a ring binder.

You can find the Big SDP plates and other Nail Art supplies at Dashica's Beauty Shop. She also posts updates and new arrivals on blog Shirley's Beauty Nails. The plate retails for 15,99 euros, about $22 US dollars.

  8. @ThaKitty. I'm a hello kitty fan also, that's why i did two HK mani's :)

    @Kelly. The SdP-A plate is not as large as the Konad demo plates. The SdP plate has 42 designs but the Konad plate has 260+ designs. Yes, the plate is 15,99 euros, which converts to about $22 US dollars, but this may vary slightly according to the exchange rate.

    @Ivana & Nicole. Thanks ladies! I'm a pink fan as well.

    @Toyomi. Thank you :)

  26. @Dianna sorry for the slow response. If you click on the "contact us" button you can email Shirley. It will go through in English but I believe she's fluent in English and will respond to your email. Let me know if that doesn't work.

    @Troy and La Professionelle. As far as I know they are only made by Shirley and she's not in the US. Her shipping prices are pretty reasonable though.

  27. How much did you end up paying for shipping?

    1. I just bought two plates from them. You can email them at info@dashicabeautyshop.nl and someone will answer you in english about ordering. The plates are like $22 USD each, I got two and the shipping was $16 USD! So for two plates plus shipping, it came to $60. I dont know what the shipping would be if you only ordered one, but the plates are all so beautiful it might be worth it to order more than one.

      (BTW, I Got BIG SdP D and Sdp N and I am very happy with them!)

      The only problem is tracking. The links they sent me NEVER worked correctly, were only in Dutch and it was worried they wouldn't arrive. After about three weeks, my plates came and they are BEAUTIFUL!! If i could afford it I would have ordered more (make the most of the costly shipping and the wait time)

      The company was realyl good about answering my emails. Always helpfula nd within a day or so, they got back to me!
