I don't know about you, but I was happily surprised to wake to an unexpected email from MoYou London today announcing the release of 2 new plates in the Festive Collection. And they are for Valentine's Day and available NOW! Let's take a look!
OK, I'll admit that I'm a sap and they had me with that pic up there of the pug and the bunny. Seriously, can it get any cuter??? I only wish was that they had made it into a design and put it on these plates. Hint, hint if you happen to be reading MoYou London!!
There are 2 plates: one Regular size (1.5cm x 1.cm) and 1 XL size (2.0cm x 1.5cm). I think they heard us and released these a little earlier than some of the previous Festive Collection plates. Personally, I'd still like to be able to buy them 2+ months in advance, but that's the blogger in me wanting to be able to share nail art designs with you as far in advance of the holiday as possible.
So I'll just spill the beans now and tell you that I thought these plates were awesome and I've already placed my order for both with expedited shipping! I just love all the cute heart designs that will work so well together in one of my mismatched nail art designs. It's really hard to pick a favorite, but that bouquet of hearts caught my eye first thing and I think it will be great for decals or LeadLighting.
I loved the extra designs on this plate, like the 'scrolly' love bird on the bottom left and the heart gradient on the bottom right. Mom has small nails and I have XL nails, so it gives me a good excuse to buy both plates! No doubt they will be put to good use.
My Valentine's Day plate collection is pretty small. Sure, I've got lots of plates with hearts on them, but very few that speak directly to the holiday since it wasn't really until around Easter last year and the start of my blog that I became a serious plate collector. So all of these designs look fun and original to me.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on these plates! Did you rush out and place your order too or are you already well stocked in plates for Valentine's? If so, which brand/collection are your favorite plates from?
These plates are available now and retail for £4.99 (approximately $8.50). You can purchase them directly from MoYou London.
Thanks for reading! I'll see you at the next post.
