WINNING #5: MoYou image plate

Ok, I have a few other articles I actually needed to do first, but I haven’t finished the photos for those yet, so I’m going to show you my lovely new MoYou Imageplate!

If you follow MoYou on Twitter, you might know they have regular trivia contests, where you answer a series of questions and they pick 5 winners! I answered 5 questions about famous internet cats (LOL!) and was allowed to pick one of their Kitty plates ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m a fan of full nail images, but the Kitty plates didn’t have them unfortunately. I’m still very happy with my 04 plate though!

..and especially if it contains such a gorgeous item! The packaging is a sleek matte card stock, with a lovely vintage-y print!
And when you slide out the image plate…

MoYou_Plate_Kitty (4)..you find a gorgeously large image plate, mounted on a thick plastic backing, with 32 cute designs!

A closer look at the designs:

MoYou_Plate_Kitty (5)Ah, don’t you just love these? After this it was time to check the stamping quality, of course! I took my trusty stamper I got from BornPrettyStore, and used a card to scrape off the polish. I used Essence’s LOL as a basecoat (the green) and stamped using a red polish (can’t remember which, but no special stamping polish), and this was the result:

And at only 5 pounds per plate, I think these are a great deal!

BPS Haul

Since I discovered BornPrettyStore (it’s like a DealeXtreme for beauty-stuff, haha!) I’ve ordered several things. Some of them were featured in my last blog post, and I recently bought some other items:

It’s just a small order, I just really wanted the nail polish and bought the other things since they were really inexpensive! I paid for most of it using their points, every point is worth 1ct and you can get them by ordering stuff, writing reviews and uploading photos/videos. I can really recommend this if you’re low on cash and want to buy some great budget items!

Cuticle cutter and file
There’s not a lot to say about this; it’s a file and cuticle cutter in one. The cutter is really sharp, and is great for removing dead skin and hangnails (which I get really often..). Luckily, it’s protected by a cap so you don’t cut yourself on accident. The file is quite fine and allows for a smooth finish on your nails. The pointy end is useful for getting the dirt out from under your nails.

Nail polish
I’m really glad I bought this polish before it sold out! It’s a beautiful metallic shade of light blue, which looks silver or blue depending on the light you’re in! It’s opaque in two to three coats (depending on the thickness) and the formula is very smooth and glides on easily. It’s absolutely packed with glitters and doesn’t need a top coat. I needed to shake the bottle vigorously, because ย the formula wasn’t really consistent, but that’s a really minor thing. It does have a strange, but not entirely unpleasant smell to it. There is a darker blue version of the same/a similar polish (same brand and bottle), which you can find here. I’m planning on buying it because it looks lovely and I want to check if they’re similar.

Surprise gift bags
I bought two of these by accident, but since they’re so cheap and much fun to open (I love surprises), I was actually glad I got two!

The first pack contained a pair of false lashes, a small red lipstick, and a little mascara brush. I don’t have lash glue or a reason to wear the falsies yet, but they feel great and look awesome already. I’ve got a wedding coming up so I guess that’s a nice moment to try them on. The red lipstick is really tiny, but extremely bright and pigmented. I tested it on my hand and when I wiped it off, my hand was still red-ish. The mascara brush.. well it’s a brush ๐Ÿ˜›

The second set contains a black, loose eyeshadow (it can be bought in a set of 12 colours, which is on my wishlist!), a soft sponge and a pony mirror. I’m not used to working with powder eyeshadows (I only have pressed ones) but it’s very pigmented and I’m going to have to try it out soon! The sponge is very fluffy, but I haven’t found an use for it yet. The mirror is.. well.. let’s just say I’m not a big fan of ponies. Anyone want a cute little mirror..?
