Stamping Plate: MoYou - 105

Recently MoYou have really started to re-brand, with a new website, new Facebook page and a new twitter, also an instagram. I have used the brand before and have purchased plates from them before, you can see those reviews here, here and here. This plate was sent for reviewing purposes, which won't effect my opinion.

As you can see the plates come in a cellophane package and have a blue plastic layer to protect the plate in transit. The plates are fully backed as well with the website address, this is useful as it also means no sharp edges.

The plastic was well stuck down but once it was removed you can see the plate was fine to use. Below you can see some of the images stamped on to paper, I didn't have many issues in getting the to transfer. The images were cut deep enough to work but not too deep to cause problems either.

GOT: Lilac

I was trying to go from large to small dots, not sure it really worked. I used ELF's Lilac from June 2010. As for the dots I used Models Own Red Black from January 2011.

Nails: Purple Opal

Having used Avon's Opal top coat over black I wanted to try it out over a different colour to see how it worked out. It is still pretty over a lighter colour but I think most effective over a black polish.
