*Stamping plates and stamping polish were provided in exchange for a 100% honest review.
Unfortunately, I found that the purple was not as opaque as I hoped it would be over the orange. It was visible, but it didn't really resemble the bottle shade. In the most harsh lighting situations, it almost appeared a darker shade of orange, but in most normal lighting it was purple. just not quite purple enough. In the photo below, you can see it before I fixed the mani up. (please bear in mind that my lighting setup is extremely bright, so this is how it looked at its absolute worst)
So, despite the less than perfect beginnings of this mani, I really liked how it turned out. They really look like witches tights, and I found having the stamping to work on top of really helped me stop my stripes from being too uneven.
So, while I can't give the stamping polish a perfect review, I really did love the mani's I did with it, and the 2 plates I was sent were both of fantastic quality.
I also voiced my concerns to my contact at MoYou Nails a few days ago, and I'm very pleased to say that they have taken the constructive criticism brilliantly, and will be passing my feedback on to the people who could improve the polish. I don't know how everyone else feels about it, but to me, that is the mark of a great brand, taking on feedback provided by users and using it to make your product better, rather than just trying to keep a lid on it.
They were also really nice about it all, and while I know that doesn't make a difference to you guys as consumers, I still felt it was worth mentioning. I'm sure the fellow bloggers reading this understand, it can be a bit scary running a review that isn't all positive, so working with a brand who truly appreciate your honesty is always a lovely experience.

That's all from me today, but I'm hoping to be back tomorrow with my monthly round up post, provided I don't run out of Nurofen before then of course. :D
