Moyou Nails Review *part 3*

Part 3 of the new Moyou Plates


Hello again, and here is my last part of my review on the new Moyou Nails stamping plates I was sent. I have used all the plates now and spent most of yesterday doing this review. I did say in part 2 of my review that the images on these new plates are bigger. Take a look for yourselves..


And to remind you of the plates I'm reviewing.. All images and stamping polishes in this review are from Moyou Nails.


So onto the nails. First up is my Chalkboard noughts and crosses. I painted my nails black and added a matte topcoat to give a chalkboard look.


Now I also wanted to show you how much better the Moyou Nails white stamping polish is against the Konad white. The pinky and ring finger is Konad and the rest is Moyou Nails. You can see how much whiter the Moyou Nails one is, I also think I scraped too much polish off the image and that's why I have spots within the stamped image. But I still think the Moyou polish is the best.



For the next mani I used two images, the flowers from plate 126 and the clouds from plate 127. I made a blue and green gradient on my nails with acrylic paint and a fan brush, for a grass and sky look. To make a Summers Day Manicure.


I stamped the flowers with pink polish and the clouds in white.


Next up is plate 109. A Masquerade Mask plate. Black and white nails, with pink, white and black stamping.

For the final mani, this is my favourite one too :) I've called this Fire and Ice as I used the snowflakes and flames images. I even took the photo in the freezer!!


Overall I love these new plates, a great range of different images and the polishes stamp so well. Moyou have just released new stamping  polishes as well, head over to their website and take a look at all these new products, and don't forget you can keep up to date with Moyou Nails by following them on Facebook.
Thanks for reading and until next time stay safe and much love...

Moyou Nails Review *part 2*

Burnt Newspaper Nails


Happy Monday everyone, and I'm here again with my second Moyou Nails review. The same plate that I used for my Sunset Beach nails. I used the writing image and wanted to try something different from just plain stamping. I used these polishes..


I used the lightest polish as a base and stamped with Moyou Black. The images on these plates are much bigger and a perfect size for my nails. The polish stamps really really well.



With a makeup sponge and the darker polishes I added some burnt patches, to create the effect of burnt newspaper. 


I even made my own tea stained burnt scroll as a background piece for my photos.




I hope you like this manicure, and don't forget to follow Moyou Nails on Facebook. If you want to buy any of their plates or polishes direct from Moyou Nails. I will be back with another review tomorrow :) Till then stay safe and much love..

Moyou Nails New Plates Review *part 1*

Moyou Nails Stamping


Hello again everyone :) The weather here in the UK is beautiful at the moment, and just perfect for today's manicure. I was recently contacted by Selina from Moyou Nails asking if I would do another review for them. Now with the Moyou Nails plates and polish I have reviewed so far I was so happy to be asked again, as they are amazing products. I chose and was sent 3 of their new stamping plates to review. I'm planning on doing these reviews every other day using a different images from the 3 plates. So this review is *part 1*.


These are the 3 plates. 127 with flames, clouds, snowflakes and puzzle pieces, 109 masquerade masks and 126 noughts and crosses, flowers, beach scene and writing.


Blue protective cover on each plate.


I used these polishes from Beauty UK to make a sunset gradient on my nails. I started off by painting each nail yellow.


Then with a makeup sponge dabbed orange on each nail.


Then red with another sponge.


A bit messy and reminds me of an ice lolly lol.


Much better once all cleaned up. Then stamped the beach image on plate 126 using Moyou Nails Black Stamping Polish. As I was expecting, the image stamped really well.




A beautiful image that goes so well with the background polish. Just right for the hot sunny weather we have here right now :)
You can purchase these new plates and polish from Moyou Nails, and follow them on facebook.
I will be back on Monday with *part 2* of my reviews on another image from the same plate. Till then enjoy the rest of your weekend, stay safe and much love..

Baby Nails

I'm going to be a Nanny :)


Hello all again! So I did this mani yesterday, but it was a busy family day so I didn't get round to doing this blog post, although I did share my pics on Facebook. I have got the Water Decal making bug and can't stop and recently made these ones..


I painted my nails with these polishes..







And used the baby decals to celebrate my daughter being pregnant with her first child :) 



And here is my Grandchild's first photo <3


I'm so excited for my daughter and can't wait to meet my first Grandchild. No doubt I will do another post as her pregnancy progresses.

Till next time stay safe and much love...

Patchwork Water Marble

Water Marbling and Patchwork 


Oh my I really didn't think I was gonna ever finish my nails today! Hello again, a late post from me today. Lets just say life happened this morning lol. Anyway after much deliberation I finally came to a decision of what to do on my nails, as I really wanted to try something different. 
I love patchwork nails, and water marbling....so I thought why not try them together!
Well if I had known how long it was gonna take I don't think I would have bothered to be honest, but I started so I finished..

To start I made some water marbled stickers on some plastic. Topcoated when dry to make them a bit stronger.




Then I carefully peeled them from the plastic and cut each one into small shapes..


With my nails already painted white, I applied a topcoat and stuck random pieces to each nail while it was still tacky. And I thought cutting the shapes took me a while!!


Before clean up, and it was at this point I really didn't like them and wanted to give up. So I thought I'd just finish this hand and see how it looked before I attempted the other hand.


Cleaned up and added stitching detail with black acrylic paint, no topcoat and still unsure but did my other hand anyway. Topcoated when finished..



And my other hand..


This took me about 6 hours from start to finish, and even now I'm still unsure on this mani, so I would really like to hear what you guys think. 
Now I'm off for a well earned cuppa lol, enjoy the rest of the weekend and I'll be back soon :)
Stay safe and much love..

Holographic Lace

Layla and Lace!




Hey again, a quickish post following on from my own made water decals yesterday. I wanted to try some on my own nails and share with you all :)

As the sun will be with us for the next few days ( I'm hoping for longer!) it was the perfect time to use Layla Holographic in Mermaid Spell. How lush is this polish in the sun!!



I pre painted these decals with a thin layer of topcoat, then cut ready to use.



Used and applied like any water decal, some stuck quicker than others to my nails, and I'm so happy with how they look. What do you think? Before I applied a topcoat.



Even my cinderella hand!


Then after topcoat, just to hold the decals in place.


Hope you like this manicure as much as I do. You can also see when I said the white looking part of the decal becomes clear, although if printed on white decal paper then would stay white.
Well till next time, stay safe and much love..
