Egyptian Messy Mansion Stamping Plate MM32 review

Hello everyone. Today I have two designs using the Messy Mansion Egyptian themed stamping plate MM32. The first one I couldn't go past using black and gold. All of the images stamped cleanly and were etched out beautifully. The black and gold Egyptian patterns looked stunning and I really enjoyed wearing this mani :).

For the second design I tried my hand at lead lighting a technique made possible by Messy mansion where you create a stain glass effect by filling in the stamping lines with jelly polishes. I don't have any lead light polishes yet so I used OPI sheer tints and Zoya High Gloss sheers. The OPIs were really horrible to work with in this technique. They became very stringy and just didn't want to play. The Zoyas were better but with just 3 colours it limits what you can do so I will be buying some lead light polishes soon. I don't love or hate this design , the stamped images are great, my colouring in is not so flash. I think it's not too bad for a first try and I do love the idea of the lead light technique so will keep practising :).

There are still so many more options on this plate that I didn't use.
You can pick up this plate and many other stamping plates and accessories at the Messy Mansion website and keep up with the latest news on their Facebook page

This product was sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please note computer monitors may vary in colour display.


  1. If you hadn't mentioned it I would have never guessed that was your first attempt at lead lighting- you've done a great job :)

  2. Awesome stamping! Love it :-) They look so good :-)

  3. Beautiful! I have a leadlght design on right now as well. I also used OPI sheer tints and you're right, they are horribly thick and gloopy. I read today on a blog (not sure which one) that she made her own jellies by mixing a cream polish with top coat. I may try that next time. The colors would be unlimited!


I love reading people's thoughts so please leave a comment. If you have a blog or facebook page etc please leave the link I love looking at everyone's gorgeous nail work.
