So, this month’s theme for the Maniology Mani X Me box was Hocus Pocus and I honestly think that this is their best one yet. I was so excited for it to arrive and basically knew what mani I wanted to do with these plates straight away. With the theme Hocus Pocus, you probably have already worked out that what will be on the plates.
yes, it’s all witchy things and these plates are so awesome. I have seen some absolutely beautiful mani’s using this month’s kit. This plate is MXM015 and it has 10 full nail images and 8 smaller images. Most of these are perfect for both regular stamping and reverse stamping.
This is MXM016 and it is made up of mostly smaller images. It has one large image, about twice the size of a full nail image and then it has 37 small images. There is a good mix of regular and reverse stampers but they are all so cute, it really was hard to narrow it down for one mani. Although I will likely use these plates a few more times during the spooky season and maybe even other times.
Both the full kit and the Express Kit also had a nail art brush in it. This brush is the #106 brush and has a handle filled with little gems, it’s so pretty.
And it has a tip that is perfect for nail art and reverse stamping. It’s small enough to fill in all the little details in an image.
For my Witch Please mani I started with a base of the new Barry M Night Sky from the Green Origin range [gifted] and topped it with Level up Lacquer Dark Matter, I keep forgetting how pretty that polish is and I urge you to check out some of Level Up Lacquer‘s polishes if you can.
I then stamped my images using Moyou White Knight and Black Knight and started filling in the images on my middle nails and thumb.
