Messy Mansion Image plate review

     Hello everyone. I'm kind of excited about today's post. Why? Well, I was sent some image plates from Messy Mansion for review and I can't wait to share them with you. These plates can be purchased online at I received 3 plates to share with you.

     My package arrived in pretty rough shape with a letter from the postmaster stating they had an accident with my package and an apology. The edges of the plates got slightly bent, but I was able to bend them back for the most part. I wanted to let you know that because you will see it in my pictures and I don't want you to think that's how the plates are. And I also want to let you know that mine is a rare experience and your plates should arrive safe and sound.

     First up is Lilly Anna 08.  A rectangle shaped plate with 12 full sized images and 2 longer images. There is a variety of images on this plate, from geometric patterns to snowflakes.

     If you follow my blog or facebook page you know that stamping is not my strong suit but I'm getting better. This plate was really easy to work with. I wanted to try images with a delicate pattern and a wider one. And I was in love with the snowflake image from the moment I opened my package.

     I used China Glaze For Audry as my base and Konad White to stamp with. Every image I tried transferred to the nail with ease. And I was able to cover the entire nail. The one I'm most impressed with is my ring finger. I thought all those lines so close together would be tricky, but I had nothing to worry about.

     Next up I have plate MM18. A round plate with 4 full nail images, 6 individual images, and a long image.

     I used the bee theme as my inspiration for testing this plate.

     I used Sinful Colors Pull Over stamped with Konad Black. Again I was able to transfer the complete image to my nail on the first try. I love the little bee inside the honeycomb pattern.

     The last plate I have to show you is MM14. Another round plate with 4 full nail images, 3 individual images and 2 half nail images.

     My nails are short enough that the half nail image ended up filling up pretty much my entire nail. For this plate, I wanted to see how it would stamp using a regular polish instead of my Knoad stamping polishes.

     I used Orly Dayglow and stamped with Essie Blue Rhapsody for these cute birds. I knew I wanted to try out the peacock feathers and the little birdcage right away when I saw this plate. And as you can see my ring finger is completely covered by the birds on the branches image.  The peacock feathers are a little big for my small nails but I still really like that image. I'll have to play around with the placement a little bit to make it work for me.

     I found all 3 of these plates easy to use and the images all transferred very well. In fact, I've already added a few more plates to my Christmas list.

     To keep up with all the latest news from Messy Mansion be sure to check out the facebook page, and the shop.

     Which plate was your favorite? Are there any others I should check out? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

  1. I've got two sets and some loose plates from bundle monster, but have really been loving the images from Pueen and Messy Mansion lately. Might have to break down and get another set! Thanks for the review.

    1. Thanks for your comment Amanda. I have a ton of plates from Bundle Monster which usually work well for me. These Messy Mansion plates were even easier to use! I would highly recommend getting your hands on a few. =)

  2. Great review! Those plates look great and have some wonderful designs too :)

    1. Thanks Lisa. I wasn't sure what information I should include in the review since Ive never done stamping plates before. It helps to know people are finding this helpful.

  3. Lovely! I've gotten into stamping in a big way (thanks in part to the great designs from Messy Mansion). Nice to see the review including a Lily Anna plate, I've been looking at them but was wondering how they'd compare :) Nice job stamping!

    1. Thank you Reen. I have had the hardest time with my stamping in the past, and with these I felt like I knew what I was doing. =)

  4. You did a really great job with these! What did you use as the stamper for them?

    1. Thank you Janice. I actually used a stamper that I've had forever. I think I picked it up from amazon? It's the short little pink one that isn't squishy. (if that makes sense) I'll see if I can find a link to it....

    2. This is the stamper ans scraper that works best for me as far as getting clean image and controling where the image goes in the nail.
