MoYou London Arabesque 09

(Press samples and affiliate links** ahead!)

Hello!


Today we're going to take a quick look at MoYou London Arabesque 09--this is not a new plate, but it's a new-to-me plate that I've been craving for ages and finally was able to buy. Here's the video review I did on the plate:



And here's a closer look:

What I love about this plate: I'm a huge fan of anything with an ancient Egyptian theme, and I have all of MoYou London's plates with that theme, and everything on this plate matches those other plates perfectly. For that reason alone, this was a no-brainer for me. But, even if I didn't have plates that match it, I'd grab this plate up for all of the gorgeous patterns on here that can be used in their own right, or for background images other art. Flowers and starts and geometrics--oh my!


Each of the squares on this plate are different sizes, so here's a shot with a ruler to help you get a feel for whether the images work for you--many of them are on the smaller side, so if you have longer nails they may not work, or you'll have to double them up:





I don't think I've ever had a MoYou London plate that I had a problem with, and this plate is no exception--look at the excellent detail even with a clear stamper:




For my sample manicure, I wanted to show you the background potential of the images, but I also had to throw something ancient Egyptian on there, too. I started with a base of Zoya River, then stamped the star pattern with Messy Mansion Soft Gold, and the cat with Messy Mansion Carbon:

This manicure features three things I love: background stamping, ancient Egypt, and of course, cats. I love the celestial feel and the ease of this look.


You can buy this plate (and tons more!) directly from MoYou London, or from Amazon if that's easier for you. And you can find MoYou London around the interwebs here:




Happy stamping!
