Today I have a very unique MoYou Stamping Plate to show you. They have several different collections- this is Plate #01 from their Suki Collection.
The plate is well-constructed with a plastic back. Instead of individual images, it is a large montage type image with various Japan-inspired tidbits like cherry blossoms, tigers, fans and an owl. (I’m not sure what he’s doing there, but he’s kind of cute.)
Here’s the plate:
Given the size of the images, this plate will work better on larger nails. Smaller nails will just have partial details on them- it still looks cool, but it will be hard to see the whole picture. I’ve done some stamping on longer blank nails.
Nails 1-6 are just random stamping, and nails 7-12 show an image stretching across the nails.
Here are the images stamped with Konad black polish. The stamping is clean- any smudging is because I didn’t clean the stamp properly, not due to any issues with the plate. The stamping is clean and vivid, but as with all larger/bolder stamps, you will need to work quickly.
These designs are very intricate, but to make them pop, they need a little color (in my artistic opinion, anyway!)
For a little color, I use Turner Acryl Gouache. You can use acrylic paint too. Water it down, so it’s transparent, and then brush it on. It’s OK to be messy- the objective is just a touch of color for an artistic look. You can paint super neatly if you want too- it’s up to you!
And…since my name is NeverTooMuchGlitter- I added some rhinestones and a layer of glitter for a little extra oomph. Finish off with a good topcoat and you’re ready to go!
I’m pretty satisfied with this MoYou plate- it stamps well and is well constructed. You will need to work fast with it, as the designs are intricate and large and the stamping polish will dry quite quickly.
I’d recommend this plate for larger nails or pedicures to get the maximum visual impact. However you use it, is of course, up to you! This plate is 4.99GBP and is available online from MoYou.
What do you guys think? Will you be trying these mega-sized plates out?
