Hello lovelies! Woo, it's almost Christmas! I feel really excited this year for some reason! Anyway I have a pretty, sparkly double review to show you today! You might remember I reviewed some one-coat Nella Milano polishes by OMG Marketing a few weeks ago. Well, they kindly have asked me to review some of their MoYou Nails stamping plates and also some stamping polishes. Unfortunately the stamping polishes haven't arrived yet but I thought I'd show you one of the beautiful designs on their plates using Konad white stamping polish.
Now I find stamping over glitter gives a really lovely effect so I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try one of my untried indies. I first of all did a gradient with Nella Milano black and turquoise and then applied one coat of Nail Lacquer UK Christmas Miracle. I seriously love her polishes, she really knows how to put colours together perfectly and the consistency is always great. This was so easy to apply and as with all big circle glitter polishes I fish out the big circle glitters and place them on. Some people are scared of big circle glitter polishes being too lumpy, but I find that with 2 coats of Poshe fast drying base coat and one coat of HK girl topcoat it's so glossy and smooth and looks jelly like :)
I was tempted to try a Christmas stamping design first but I fell in love with the butterfly design and I'm really glad I chose it as I think it goes so well with the base colours. The one thing I'd say about the designs on plate 222 is that they are extremely narrow. My nails are very narrow and I found they fitted perfectly but I'd have liked them to be wider because I had to get placement perfect for them to fit all around my nails. Length wise they're quite long, as you can see they covered most the length of my nails, although I don't think they would have a week ago before I filed down.
I've included a picture of a pueen plate (left) next to this plate (right) so you can see how narrow the designs are, but you can also see they are slightly longer than average plates. The plates are really good quality though and as you can see they produce a clear, detailed stamp. Also, not all of their plates are this narrow. I have been sent 3 and they do a selection of widths and lengths.
What do you think? I adore this stamp design, it's so cute :) I am excited to try the other designs and to see what their stamping polishes are like too! I am not sure when I'll next get to post but I hope you all have a lovely Chrsitmas if I don't get to post before! x
