Review and Before & After: MoYou London Artist Collection 03

(Nothing to disclose)

Hello!!

Let's take a look at MoYou London Artist Collection 03; I love this plate in its own right, but also because it goes so well with several other plates in their collection (in particular, these are the two I'm thinking of). Here's the video review:





And here are the stills:

And here is how big the images are next to a standard Konad plate, 'cause, you know, that's just how I roll:





This is one of their XL plates, so the images are huge and you should have no problem covering your nails unless they are really, rally long. :)


This is possibly the most perfect plate on the planet for geometric manicures, which is this month's theme in the Nail Challenge Collaborative!

I started with a base of Julep Natalie a pink-leaning coral that goes a bit more to the orange side in some lights:

Then, I used the orange-triangle-square glitter looking image, and used a double-stamp technique with it; I stamped first with one color, then changed the position of the image and stamped again in another color. I finished off with a few loose glitters (that my dear friend Aleksandra sent me!) in complementary colors:



Now that's a party for your fingers right there.


Thumb gotta get a groove on...

For my pinky, I first used Sally Hansen I-rush Luck, then Lickety-Split Lime over it; for my ring finger, I used Lightning & then Orange Impulse; for my middle finger I used Pronto Purple and then Lively Lilac on top of it.

And for this manicure, I left my thumb blank; when there is a lot of visual weight on three fingers, I like to leave the index and thumb with just base polish to balance it out with some negative space. :)

I think this many is fun, bright, and just full of awesome. I hope you agree!

Here's the link again to my review of Artist collection 02 and 04, which coordinate beautifully with this plate.

Hugs and loves,
M.

  2. (oh, poo! Had a whole comment typed up, but then got an error :S Hope it doesn't resurface later on..)

    Sooo, if that's a Zoya Natalie for base, why are you holding a Julep [Natalie] bottle? :D (such a lovely colour!)
    Appreciate the full hand pic. :) Such a fun mani! Great plate with lots of interesting designs.
