Review: UberChic Beauty Mandala Love mini plate

(Press samples and affiliate links** ahead!)

Hello!

UberChic Beauty recently came out with a new mini plate, Mandala Love...As the name suggests, the focus is henna-style mandala designs, but with a twist--instead of just one mandala, she deconstructed the different parts of the mandala so you have different sizes and configurations of the repeating elements.

Here's the video I made reviewing the plate:



Let's take a closer look:

The beauty here is the different combinations of the same basic elements, so you can mix and match to your heart's content. Want a mani that focuses on the leaf element? You can do that, and still get a variety of images for each nail. Want to hightlight the flower? No problem. And so on.


The full nail images are the same size as on the full plates; here's a look:





But hey, how well does it stamp? Pretty darn flawlessly:




Absolutely beautiful. :)

For my sample mani, I wanted to do something to celebrate the pretty flower element. I started with a base of Barry M Cotton, and then stamped with Messy Mansion Soft Gold. I made two decals also with Soft Gold, and also with Messy Mansion Carbon and Sally Hansen Rapid Red:

What do you think? I am sooo in love with this look--it's elegant, it has a punch of color, and it has an awesome cloisonne feel to it. I don't want to take it off, please don't make me!!!

You can find this plate in the UberChic Beauty Store, and don't forget to follow them on Instagram and Facebook for updates and ideas.

Happy stamping!
