Greetings Nail Artists! Wednesday is finally here and we get to see MoYou London’s new Fashionista Collection! I’ve been curious about these plates since I saw the teaser on Monday. High fashion has never really been my thing, but it doesn’t need to be to love the plates in this collection. Let’s take a look!
“Meet Coco, a Fashion Dreamer.
She finds beauty in everything.
Mix & match, gather inspiration, pick up her scissors and go!
Coco sees fashion as a way for us to play with the world and rearrange it to our liking.
She’s all about Colours, Patterns and Crafty Ideas.”
There will be 5 new plates this week: 1 Collage style, 2 Regular size (1.5cm x 1.2cm) and 2 XL size (2.0cm x 1.5cm). I am sad to report that those of us with long nails are at a disadvantage again this week. Hopefully the 12 additional designs on the Regular size plates will be introduced in XL in a future release.
This collage plate has some really cute designs that are perfect for the home enthusiast of someone professionally making clothing. I love all the little stitches meandering about!
I am loving the four braided designs in the top row of the first XL plate and the quilted look of the 2nd design on the bottom row. I’m kind of meh about the other designs on the plate, maybe because I’m not really sure what they are. Perhaps someone with a better understanding of the stitching will love them or it will “click” with me when I see them in action.
Here’s the Regular size plate that coordinates with 02 above. Again I am loving those braided designs! The 6 designs on the bottom row are not yet available in XL. They’re not really my style so I’m not too sad about it, but I was happier when MoYou London’s launches included the same designs for everyone.
Here’s my pick from this collection! It was love at first sight! I have been really into Chevron designs lately but, surprisingly, I have very few designs in my plate collection. The 3rd and 5th designs on the first row and last 3 on the bottom row are amazing!
The last plate is the Regular size version of 04 above. Now I am sad that all of these designs aren’t available in XL right now! The 6 designs that are unique to this plate are scattered about. I love the 5th design on the top row and the 4th design on the bottom row that I’d love to use with the darker design proceeding it.
I would love to hear your thoughts on this new plates. Are they what you expected when you heard “Fashionista”? I had something different in mind, but I am psyched about the Chevron plate and can’t wait to bring it home!
These plates will be available on Friday, August 15th, and retail for £4.99 (approximately $8.50, depending on the conversion rate). You can purchase them directly from MoYou London. Shipping to the US is still FREE for orders over £15! Take advantage while you can!
