Review, test, & manicure: Zodiac 01

(Affiliate links)

Hello!


Are you an Aquarius? Hey, if you're not, no worries, neither am I--but I love the Aquarius plate from MoYou London's Zodiac collection, and I'm gonna review it and test it and love it and kiss it for you today.

First up, my video review discussing ways to use the plate:




And here are the still shots:

And here it is next to a Konad plate so you can get an idea of the relative size of the images:

So how does it stamp?

The lines here are crisp and the details are well-preserved, except for two of the balls on the left image. This is a difficult image, and I think that plus the combination of this particular polish; you can see it came out crisper in the below manicure.


Speaking of which...when I tested this plate, I was taking a trip to the beach, so wanted to do something with a water/beach feel to it. I started off with a skittle base of Zoya Rebel on my index and middle fingers, Zoya Muse on my ring finger, and Zoya Nori on my pinkie. Then I stamped using Hit The Bottle polish Blue-tiful and Pool Party:

I love the soft subtlety to this manicure, along with the peeks of glitter. Very water sign! :)
