So these mermaid plates are from the May Mani X Me Express Kit from Maniology, but because I have been so slack I am only just getting round to using them. And while I pay for my Maniology subscription myself, some of the Barry M nail polishes in this mani were gifted to me.
There may be a lot going on in this mani, but I love it, and I am still really in love with the Fortune Teller flakie topcoat from Barry M, it’s so pretty and I am especially in love with it over light colours.
This is the MXM007 stamping plate, and it is one of those plates where the whole plate makes up one scene/picture but you can pick and choose little elements of the picture to build your mani. I used the Mermaid’s tail from the bottom of the plate.
And this is MXM008, which has 3 full nail images and then it has 29 smaller images, some of which are layered stamps, although you could use the individual layers on their own too. I used the bubbles image from the top right, the clam shell images and the Beach Please stamp.

We also received this cute angle clean up brush. The handle is filled with glitters that move around as you move it. I haven’t actually tried this brush yet, I try to wait until my current clean up brush is completely battered before I start using a new one, so I’ll likely be using it quite soon. But it seems very comfortable to hold and the bristles seem really good.
