Review: Messy Mansion Crystal 04

(Press samples and affiliate links ahead!)


Hello!


I'm soooo into spring manis right now, and I've been waiting to make my first cherry blossom mani of season, with Messy Mansion Crystal 04 layering plate. Here's the video review I did of Messy Mansion's Crystal series:



Let's take a closer look at the plate:

Pretty much any type of flower you could ever hope to layer is here for you, along with some branches and some birdies and some leaves just to make things complete. :)


The sizes vary, so here's a look at the plate with a ruler:





And of course what we really want to know is how well this baby stamps:




 The quality is excellent, and the images layer well--when my hand isn't shaking!


For my sample manicure, I started with a base of The Lady Varnishes Poetry Reading. I stamped my branches with Messy Mansion Pudding, and then my flowers with Messy Mansion Chalk, Dogwood Pink, and Petal. Unfortunately, I didn't put on topcoat before I stamped, so the green of the base polished leaked into the stamped images and changed the color--however, I really liked the muted colors I ended up with, so decided to keep it as is:

What do you think? I like the dusty vintage feel I ended up with, and that base polish is soooo gorgeous.


You can find this plate and the stamping polisehs in Messy Mansion's store, and you can also find many of their products on Amazon if that's easier for you.  And don't forget to stalk them around the interwebs:





Happy stamping!

    1. Thank you so much! That's a great compliment. <3 I think these designs definitely are all about the colors you use and how you combine them.
