And now for something completely new!

Hi Everyone!  Happy Friday!  I've got a lot of pep in my step today mostly because Messy Mansion has some new plates!!!  I love Messy Mansion plates, they are always very original and they stamp like a boss!  Julia and LilyAnna asked if I wouldn't mind doing quality assurance and then reviewing these babies and I said ABSOLUTELY! 

First up quality check every single plate I was sent stamped just great!  I really love how they do check them first before releasing them.  Not all plate makers do that and they often rely on customers being their quality assurance which isn't always the best route to go especially when there are issues.  Before Messy Mansion opened these up in the shop for sale they made sure they stamped well.

I received 10 plates in total for this new release and today I have manicures done with 3 of them.  I will be showing off more mani's tomorrow and Sunday though as well.  Naturally I'm anxious to use them and see what I can come up with.

First up I did my first ever blobbicure and paired it with the Dino Skeleton plate MM47
I used Rescue Beauty Lounge Footpath for my basecoat and the blobbed with OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest
This is a fun plate! The Dinosaur skeletons are soooooo cool!
Here's a quick collage
I love how my thumb turned out!

Here's the plate!
I can't wait to try something with the full images on the bottom!  That's next up for my what I want to do with this plate.


Next I have a super cute cat manicure! Woot!  You can't go wrong with cats.  And the best thing about MM50 is it has skelly fish on it!  Anyone who knows me knows I absolutely LOVE skelly fish! 

This time I did some water marbling with some of the China Glaze Electric Nights neons.  I did love how they turned out because I used a base of yellow instead of white, so stamping over them made it perfect!
How freaking cute is this??!
I water marbled with Daisy Know My Name, Treble Maker and DJ Blue My Mind
I really love this cat plate! It has a ton of cute cat images on it.  Cat lovers NEED this plate!


My final mani to show off gave me a lot of trouble!  I was trying to do a radial gradient and here's some things I learned about them.  First off I suck at them and second they are NOT easy!  I know many people think I have nice and wide nail beds but the reality is my nail beds and not that wide.  I'd say they are medium or normal which honestly makes for trying a radial gradient hard for me.  I tried for three colors--again from the China Glaze Electric Nights collection and in the end it only looks like purple and orange came out to plate when in fact yellow is supposed to be in there too LOL!

I went with the lovely MM46 which is a beautiful flower plate over my radial gradient of China Glaze Daisy Know My Name, Home Sweet House Music and Violet Vibes
Of course it rained all day yesterday when I did this so these are all indoor in the shade but still sort of need some light to be able to get good pics of freaking neons!
Honestly stamping over this gradient saved it I think
I absolutely adore this plate though and now I will use it a zillion times!

Here's the plate isn't is awesome??!

So where can you get these awesome plates? Well you have a couple of choices you can find them through Amazon.com or you can find them on Messy Mansion's site http://www.messymansion.com.au/.  In all there are 10 new plates added to the MM series and believe me when I say there is something for everyone!

What do you think of these new plates?  I would have to say as much as I love the cat plate my favorite mani I did with these three is actually what I thought was the biggest failure at first--my radial gradient.   It just goes to show that stamping DOES make everything better!


Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you all have a fantastic day!
