I decided to do separate reviews for each of the four plates MoYou London was gracious enough to send me. This way I can spend more time with each of them and provide you all the details for creating the nail art design. I’ll have one more review for you that will use the LeadLighting or Advanced Stamping (stamping decals) technique. I haven’t decided which yet.
When I am testing stamping plates I use inexpensive drugstore polish, Sinful Colors Black on Black here, and my favorite XL squishy stamper from eBay. I have found that a well etched, quality plate will perform great using that combination of tools. I’ll only bring out the real stamping polish during testing if I am having trouble getting an image to pick up. The reverse designs on the top left of the page have some very tiny details in them that reproduced perfectly. Designs that require larger areas to be filled with polish can also be problematic, but the first 3 designs in the bottom row stamped just fine. You can click on the picture to make the swatch sheet bigger.
I started my design with a base of 2 coats of Colors by Llarowe My Own Private Paradise. I keep trying to tell myself to use simple crèmes when doing reviews, but I know these MoYou London designs will only enhance the most interesting of polishes. I finished with a coat of HK Girl Fast Drying Topcoat and allowed my polish some time to dry.
Stamping polish: Mundo de Unas Violet #14
As you can see, the quality of this plate is excellent and the designs reproduce nice and crisp. I give it my 2 thumbs up rating! I hope I have a chance to use this plate again soon to do at least one of the other two distinct Skittlette designs that are calling out to me.
This plate is available now and retails for £4.99 (approximately $8.50 depending on the conversion rate). You can purchase it directly from MoYou London. Shipping continues to be FREE for orders over £15!
Thank your for reading this review! I hope you found it useful and also enjoyed the nail art design I created. I would love to hear your thoughts! I’ll see you at the next post.
