Review: MoYou London Sci-Fi Collection Plate 07

(Nothing to disclose)

Hello!!

Yes, I'm back again with another nail plate review...this time it's MoYou London Sci-Fi collection plate 07! I wasn't really into the first Sci-Fi plates they came out with, so I was totally stoked when I saw these.

First, of course, here is my video review:



And here's the still shots:

This plate isn't quite a normal plate, and it isn't quite one of their collage-style plates, either; it's a combination that has a lot of single images, and a little bit of broader patterned areas. So my recommendations for using this plate are to:

1) Use for single images.
The single images here are great for spaceships, planets, funky hot-air ballons, lightning bolts and star bursts, even ray guns. :)

2) Use larger areas for full-nail images.

There are at least five areas here that you should be able to use if you have medium nails, and two, possibly three, more if you have smaller nails:



Here is a mani I did using the patterns on that cool nexus ribbon in the center:

3) Build-a-scene! 

Instead of using the single images just willy-nilly, why not build a scene with them? Tell a story with your nails, baby! This is what I'm going to show you today. Recently we had Comicon here in California; it's way too far away for me to go, but I wanted to honor it in spirit with today's before-and-after.

I started with an stunning blue holographic jelly that also contains--wait for it--a spray of glitter! I give you LynBDesigns Absolutely Absolem:

How gorgeous is that holo?! You can see the glitter better in the shade shots, below.

For my outer-space design, I stamped with Sally Hansen Silver Sweep, and I topped it off with two blue rhinestones on my laser gun fire:


Pew pew pew!!

You can see that the intricate designs stamp well. And I love the way the glitter looks in this polish, just an extra bit of special!

So what do you think about this plate?

Hugs,

  10. Those are awesome!!! It's amazing to see how intricate the designs can get, courtesy of laser etching. Love the way they came out, particularly the little droid and explosions (and rhinestone detailing) against the blue glitter. So cool!

    1. LOL! That was the same reaction I saw when I first found out about them. I'd always been afraid of nail art because I don't draw well, and these are amazing.

  13. I've always been fascinated by nail art created by plates but I'm not patient enough to do it on my own. These are so cool!
