I am fortunate to work with Born Pretty Store. They have the most reasonable price supplies for nail art.
Here are the items I got. I already reviewed Born Pretty Chinese Ink Painting Water Decal (left) and Born Pretty Cotton Claw Nail Art Tool (right). For this post, I will review the stamper in the middle.

Price: $4.59

Description from the website:

100% brand new and high quality

Note:
With using this stamper, you can see the position of the images on your nails and there will be no more mistake about the position.
Thoughts: Several years ago, I tried getting into stamping. It was not a big success. I just couldn't distinguish where on the nail I was stamping. For that reason, I was intrigued about this clear stamper.
Here's the gorgeous metallic blue packaging.
Here's a closer look at one side of the stamper. You look through that side to see where you are stamping.
Here's a closer look at the side you stamp. It comes with a cap.
It comes with a scraper.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in OriginalFormula X Prime Xcel Base Coat, 2 coats of Julie G in Sunset Kiss, and topped it off with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat. Then on the ring finger I applied Born Pretty Stamping Template in M71 that I had a long time ago and topped it off with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat again.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, it's pretty well-made. The metallic blue is sturdy and has a curve making it easy to grab onto. The side you see through looks like magnifying glasses but it doesn't magnify. The silicone stamper is soft and feels like jelly. Not only that, it comes with a cap and it's travel-friendly. I cannot see it break unless you are rough with the packaging. Secondly, let me tell you my story. When it comes to painting my nails, I'm not that great. When it comes stamping, I'm worst. I tried several years ago with the normal pink stamper. I was able to get the design on the stamper but I couldn't distinguish where to aim on my nails. The design wasn't all on my nails but part of it were on the sides on my skin. For that reason, I gave up stamping. Then when I saw the clear stampers I thought they made this for someone like me. I decided to try stamping again. With that said and lastly, the stamper grabs the design with ease. It actually took me several different tries and I realized it's best to be gentle while grabbing the design. It's also easy to apply onto the nails since you can see what you are doing. In conclusion if you are into stamping, I highly recommend this stamper. I realized at the end, stamping just isn't for me. I have no patience for this. It's just me!

Pros:
* Well-made product.
* Sturdy.
* Easy to grab onto.
* Easy to see where you are aiming.
* Soft, jelly-like stamper.
* Stamper comes with a cap.
* Travel-friendly.
