MoYou-London Suki Collection 05 Nail Art Stamping Plate

Gosh, it’s only Tuesday! I wish this week would go a bit faster, since I’m not working on Friday…

I got totally addicted to the stamping plates that MoYou-London kindly sent me to review. So, at the end of last year, I put through a big order of ten more! This plate is from the same series as two that I already own – the Suki Collection – it’s number 5 in the series, and did not disappoint!

This plate has XL images. Even though my nails are pretty short at the moment, they are quite wide too, so these XL plates are just great for me!

The images are rectangular, so if you feel intimidated by the plates where all the patterns are mixed up, it’s a good option to go for 🙂

MoYou-London Suki Collection 07 Nail Art Stamping Plate

Happy Friday ladies! Well, I guess for any of you further East, it’s already the weekend. Does everyone have nice plans? The clocks go back this weekend in France, so we’ll have an extra hour on Sunday night. I’ve also listed almost all of my backlog of polish in the Boutique, and have some exciting news coming up for the beginning of December. So I guess we’ll be staying at home, which suits me fine 🙂

A couple of weeks ago, MoYou-London kindly sent me some plates to review. I had also purchased a couple, one of which I reviewed here. This plate is from the same series – the Suki Collection – it’s number 7 in the series, and did not disappoint!

First up, stamped in gold over a red polish; I used 4 different patterns, and they all came out gorgeous!

Since you can see the logo in the photo, please just be aware that I am not recommending Bondi NY nail polish currently. My September boxes apparently still haven’t been shipped. They were supposed to go out two weeks ago. I’m not going to get involved in details or controversy, but they have $50 of my money, I have nothing in return, and they are not providing an exact shipping date… I don’t want you wasting money ladies, something feels wrong with that company right now

Vivid Lacquer VL 012 Stamping Plate

Hey ladies, sorry for those of you further West, but I just have one more day to go to the weekend 😀

This evening, I’m going to show you the last of three stamping plates that Anni of Vivid Lacquer kindly sent for me to review! The review for the first of the three (VL  009) is here if you’d like to see it and the second, (VL 015) is here.

This time, it’s VL 012 – which is also currently out of stock. But Anni restocks really regularly, so check that out here and add it to your favourites if you like what you see! I think this plate might just be my favourite ❤

I used nearly all the motifs, everything except the bubbles. First up, the lotus patterns, in Barry M Gold Foil Effects over China Glaze Charmed, I’m Sure. The lines are beautiful and crisp, even I couldn’t mess up this stamping!

And the colour combo, *pow*, I love it! I might have to try to get away with a mani like this in the office sometime…

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-007

I decided to go a bit funky after that, and went for a French mani as the base, then stamped over it in China Glaze Vintage Crepe and Sacred Heart. I think I like how this looks, but I think it might be more suited to the summer 😉

Still, colour combination aside, the Koi carp come out beautifully! See the detail?

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-001

 

love the fishies! There’s also little versions of them, if you like. And both the big and little versions are in mirror image and opposite relief, so you can stamp the lines or the filled part – I love that, it’s so versatile 😀

As if that wasn’t enough, there are also froggies and geckos! Both full-cover and the little critters individually

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-005

Yes; I am childish enough to make the individual geckos I stamped share a little kiss…tee hee! Stamping plates are a great way of getting these fiddly designs done right, and are less expensive than stickers or decals, since you can re-use them time and time again 🙂

VL 012 Nail Art Stamping Plate-004

I scrape my plates a little too hard, so I filled in some of the white with a nail art pen, but that’s my fault, not the plates 😉

I love how, on the full-cover gecko pattern, the little marks between the geckos… Are gecko footprints! Adorable!

Vivid Lacquer plates are available on Etsy. They are really popular and can sell out quickly, but are re-stocked very regularly, so it’s really worth checking often – plus, there are new patterns seasonally, which are utterly stunning!

Thanks again to Anni for sending me these lovely plates to show you!

Vivid Lacquer VL 015 Stamping Plate

Good evening! It’s the weekend, wooop! Everyone got nice plans?

This evening, I’m going to show you the second of three stamping plates that Anni of Vivid Lacquer kindly sent for me to review! The review for the first of the three (VL  009) is here if you’d like to see it 🙂

This time, it’s VL 015 – which is currently out of stock. But Anni restocks really regularly. I know this from personal experience, when the first time I ordered, one of the plates I wanted was out of stock. It came back up really quickly, so check that out here and add it to your favourites if you like what you see!

First of all I tried the tartan pattern. It comes out lovely and crisp, but I found the edges a bit hard to get to print out right. I finally figured out that’s because the room where I was stamping was quite warm, and as the pattern is particularly fine, it was drying out a bit. Still, can you see the amazing definition in the parts that I didn’t screw up?

MoYou-London Suki Collection 08 Nail Art Stamping Plate

Thanks to Jax at Craftynail, I just had to order some MoYou-London plates!

They arrived really quickly (from the UK), and the customer service was really great. I actually ordered through their Amazon site since one of the plates I really wanted wasn’t in stock on their main site. And, being the great dolt that I am, I managed to order the wrong one (I blame Amazon one-click !!) – and realised that just after validating the order. Well, I messaged them straight away and they were really nice about it, and sent the one I meant to order 😀

So one of the two I ordered is from the Suki Collection – it’s number 8 in the series, and is pretty awesome! It’s very hard to photograph shiny things, but I got one, just for you 😉
