Messy Mansion Stamping Plate MM09

A couple of weeks ago I won my first ever giveaway, yaaaaaaay finally! God knows I've entered enough of them! I entered a giveaway on the facebook of Messy Mansion and won 3 stamping plates of my choice! 

So today I am going to show you a mani I created with one of them, the plate is MM09 and has Japanese and oriental themed designs.

To do these nails I painted a pale blue base which is a no name polish I got in a christmas gift set, and I did the ring finger accent nail with OPI 'Golden Eye'. Then using the saran wrap / cling film technique, I dabbed the middle finger with Sinful Colours 'Snow Me White' and on the index and little fingers Cover Girl 'Caribbean'. I used the same white polish to paint the water ripples with a striping brush. The red Koi fishes on the middle finger are from the Messy Mansion stamping plate and are stamped with Sinful Colours 'Timbleberry', and I used the same polish with a dotting tool on the gold accent nail to create a Koi fish skin effect.

Here on the thumb I used the same pale blue base with saran wrap and cover girl, and then stamped another image from the MM plate with Snow Me White. The image is taken from famous Japanese paintings of waves on the ocean, it's a really great image but I think the background I have chosen may be a bit too busy to appreciate the stamped image properly.

All the stamping plates I have are Bundle Monster, and I haven't really bought anymore because it seems unjustifiable when I haven't even taken the blue protection off of most of my 3 collections of BM plates yet, but after seeing these MM ones I might have to buy new ones anyway. What I really appreciated about the MM plates was the extra large images, I always have trouble finding images on the BM plates that will fit on my long nails!
I  have 2 more plates and can't wait to try them!
