Lantern and Wren: Messy Mansion Crystal 02 Plate

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I am sharing some manis I have done with Messy Mansion Crystal 02 Plate that I acquired through Lantern and Wren.  Lantern and Wren is a stockist that carries stamping plates, stamping polishing, polish, vinyls, stampers and so much more.  I actually just made an order a few days ago and already got my package, so shipping is amazing.

Let's get to the manis!
Some of these manis will look familiar as I've showcased them on my blog and YouTube, which I'll link on the individual manis so you can check them out.

First up is a new one!  LOVE - it expresses my feelings for stamping.  Four years ago I started practicing stamping and it's become one of my favorite art techniques.  I used Polish 'M Rosé, Wisteria and Electric, Ribbits Stickits Cuticle Cover, Moonflower Polish Noche and Dia (also from Lantern and Wren), Clear Jelly Stamper Big Bling Stamper and it's all topped with Glisten and Glow Top Coat.

Next I have another love of mine - CATS!  And you are in luck, I have a YouTube video tutorial on this too!  I used Bluebird Lacquer Advanced Algebrah, Lynnderella Chez Kitty, cat decals and Glisten and Glow Top Coat.

The next 2 manis have already been showcased on my blog, so I will merely leave you with photos and the links to the posts.

First is FIVE - celebrating 5 years for the Digit-al Dozen.

The next is for FALL Decor and surprise - this one has a YouTube video tutorial as well.

Do you love this plate?  Be sure to join her Facebook group and provide interest there or send her a note through her store.

Loves: This is my first plate with letters and I was worried I wouldn't find any way to use it.  Boy was I surprised, I've done so many manis with letters now!

Wishes:  Is it weird to wish for more fingers on my hand so I can spell out longer words?  :)

What words would you spell out?

  1. I love all of these looks. Perhaps Fall is my favorite!

  2. I enjoyed looking at all your creativity

  3. What fun to think of 4 letter words that would work - luck, bill, bell, sand... I'll be thinking of them all night now.

  4. Love Word manis! It’s fun! You could totally do scrabble nails!

  5. This plate is perfect for shadow stamping!

  6. This is a fun plate although I don't think I would really use it. You did great manis.

  7. I would have to think of so many 4-letter words, haha!

  8. I love the layered looks! As for four letter words... ha!

  9. That is such a great plate! You out so much detail into each Mani, I love it. My favorite is the LOVE gradient.

  10. So many things you could do with this plate! I love the antique look :)
