Hello lovelies! Keeping this short and to the point today - been battling really bad allergies the past few days so everything is a bit fuzzy at the moment.
A few weeks ago I received some Spring-themed plates and a few polishes from MoYou Nails:
I decided to do three different nail designs that would showcase the versatility of the polishes. The first design I did was a Jelly Stampwich:
I used "Amy," "Jessica," "Kristy," "Kass," and "Tammy" from Creative Cuticles Nail Polish for the jellies and stamped using my MoYou stamp and scraper and white polish. I chose images from plates 12, 203, 209 and 102 and stamped in three layers, leaving the top stamp layer white. I love how this mani turned out - it's so Springy with the images, but it's a hint of summer with the neon jelly colors!
The second design I created is a gradient with a stamped image over it.
I used MoYou light blue and Orange You Glad nail polishes for the gradient background. I then stamped with an image from plate 124 using Lilac nail polish color. I was definitely going for more of a summer mani with this design, specifically for all my friends who are still dealing with frigid weather and snow :)
The last mani design I did is my favorite of the three - it is a combination of a water marble and stamping.
This design was created specifically to see if these polishes that already stamp well, would also water marble - and I am pleased to say they do! Now the patterns may not be the best - I'm still very much a noob to the water marble technique, but the polishes spread out nicely on the water and were very easy to work with. On a plain white base (I have found with naked nail, the water marble is very thin and see-through, so you really want to put a solid color base coat first), I used Lilac, Light Blue, Maleficence, and Orange You Glad colors on their own with White for the water marble design on each nail. I then stamped images from plates 12, 203, 102, and 209 using the same polish colors over the water marbling. With a matte topcoat to finish, the result reminds me of porcelain ^_^ Porcelain reminds me of all the tea parties I used to have as a little girl in the Springtime :)
Overall I have to say I am impressed with the versatility of the polish by MoYou Nails! I figured, after using the white polish I received in the kit I purchased at ISSELB2015, the other polishes would stamp just as well, and I was correct. I had no issues with images picking up and transferring - all the little nooks and crannies in each design showed up. Water marbling was just out of curiosity, and I think it's awesome that they work well for that, too! I now have found a brand that wears well on its own, stamps perfectly, and also water marbles. Win, win, win! :D
With regards to the plates, I love how much detail is in the images, especially the butterflies! I love even more that nothing is lost in the image transfer process - really makes the mani look fantastic! I am incredibly pleased with these products and can't wait to order some more to play with for Summer!
