MoYou London stamping plates

Hi,
Today I'll show you a manicure I created with my new MoYou stamping plates. I started with two coats of China Glaze -Sun of a peach and then stamped the sweater design - that's how I like to call it - from MoYou Festive Collection 04, using white nail polish. I finished with clear top coat. What do you think?

Here's everything I got with my order at MoYou.co.uk:
- Festive Plate Collection 04
Scholar Plate Collection 02
Large Size Stamp & Scrapers

I was extremely impressed to receive the order after only 4 days, considering I am international customer. Moreover, I really enjoy the packing - each plate is packed separately in a themed cardboard and has a protection foil which has to be removed before using it. I feel the need to mention that the foil was extremely easy to remove, considering my past experience with those protection foils you would almost break your nails when trying to get rid of them.

Now onto the stamper. I've been wishing for a stamper like this one and more exactly for a squishy stamper. Until now, my favourite stamper was the double Konad stamper, but from all the stampers I've ever tried, I honestly like this one the most. If you are looking for a soft and squishy stamper, believe me that this is your best option. 
The plastic scrappers are also brilliant. I have tried other plastic scrappers before, but they just wouldn't remove properly the excess of polish, so I stuck to my Konad scrapper for years. It was really the best, but it scratched all my stamping plates (you can see that in the comparison picture below). It is now the case with MoYou's plastic scrappers, which fully remove the excess and also protect the plate.

As you can clearly see, the MoYou designs are bigger than both Konad and Bundle Monster designs. So I had the chance to try the Shrinking your image procedure which I saw on Youtube. It worked great with the squishy stamper. If you watch the video, you'll see how to make a large design smaller so as to fit your nail and that's what I did for this manicure. Below is an example and you can also see that the colour of a regular (non-stamping) nail polish is more intense when the design is shrinked.

On the other hand, I was firstly a little skeptic about this stamper because the big rubber is white. I thought I wouldn't be able stamp white designs with it, but I was definitely wrong. See it for yourselves in the picture bellow.

All in all, I am completely satisfied with my order and I hope I'll have the chance to try more of their plates in the future. You'll see another manicure with the other plate soon. 
Do you like the plates I chose? What's your experience with MoYou London image plates?

Acum m-ai facut sa vreau sa-mi mai comand si eu un stamper de la ei, si daca comand stamper, trebuie musai sa comand si vreo 2 placute, doar nu vine saracu' stamper singurel tot drumul :)) La cat este de incantata, trebuie sa-ti redenumesti blogul MoYounails :)))

Arata tare bine modelul realizat de tine si e chiar util tutorialul de pe youtube cu micsoratul imaginii.
