Hello! I'm very excited to share with you the new Cheeky 2013 Jumbo Plates!
Yes, our nails are happy with Cheeky's new plates!!!
The backings have this cute colored plaid instead of the solid blue or pink that they have had in the past.
Top Of The Class
Home Sweet Home
Wild At Heart
Sizes of the full nail images:
This is compared to last year's 2012 Summer set. They are the same.
I only tested a few images from a few plates. As you can imagine, it would be very time consuming to test every image on every plate. I just wanted to show that the plates do work well!
I started off with Zoya 'Neely'
Stamped from Jumbo Plate 9, Wild At Heart with LAYLA 'Jade Groove'
I love dragon flies!!! So I HAD to use this one!! Stamped with Konad Special Polish in Princess Pop Green
When I applied Seche Vite, it smeared the image :( Usually this doesn't happen! Maybe next time I should wait longer after stamping before I apply the top coat?

I recorded a video of closeups of all the plates, and I wanted to release it with this post but unfortunately it is going to have to wait. I'd rather get the post out to you guys ASAP! :) I am leaving for a conference from the 9th-15th, and I have a lot of things to do before I leave. Video editing is time consuming. ;) I may be able to work on it on the plane. We'll see! I'll get it up soon though, I promise!!
What do you think of Cheeky's new plates? Which ones will you be getting? I love them and I think they did a great job designing them. As always with Cheeky, the quality of the stamping is great. You can purchase the plates on Amazon individually, or as a set.

Hi everyone! I'm sharing my Cinco de Mayo nails today using the new CHEEKY Jumbo plates! I am still working on my review, which will hopefully be up (along with a video!!) sometime this week.
I created a sponge gradient with Color Club 'Dress For The Parade' and ORLY 'Ole' (SO perfect for this mani, huh?!). I must add that I HATE the formula for Dress for the Parade. I'm not good at describing polish, so the only thing I can say is that it was thick and goopy. Difficult to apply and I needed multiple coats when ended up bubbling. I took that off and I used Milani 'White on the Spot' as a base before the gradient instead and then sponged on the two colors, rather than sponging Ole onto Dress for The Parade.
Jumbo Plate 1 - Viva Mexico was so perfect for this mani!

Did you do anything fun for Cinco de Mayo, or at least enjoy a yummy margarita?! Stay tuned for the CHEEKY JUMBO PLATES review!!!
