Messy Mansion Ladybugs...

Today I have a fun ladybug manicure to share with you. This design comes from another beautiful Messy Mansion stamping plate, the bugs plate. I decided to go with some tradition ladybug colors, but I would definitely love to recreate this with yellow or orange. I think it would look pretty cute with colorful ladybugs as well... hmm...

For this manicure, I used Zoya Livingston and stamped over it using Essence Stamp Me! Black and Messy Mansion plate MM17. The accent nail is stamped using a few individual ladybug images placed randomly on the nail, while the rest of the nails are stamped with one of the full patterns from the plate. Two little black studs completed the look for me...

As with the other Messy Mansion plates, this comes with a blue protective cover which must be removed prior to first use. The back of the plate has no cover. The plate itself is larger than the the 'standard' plate size. It measures 7cm in diameter. It is made of sturdy metal that does not easily bend...

The plate is packed full of fun images to use including the ladybugs that I used today, some gorgeous dragonflies and two images to make your nail look like a beetle or a lady bug. There is even little eyes at the bottom of the plate that you can use for your bugs. I really love that these plates use every little bit of available space....

My plastic scraper (old credit card) kept scraping too much off of the larger empty areas, if I pressed too hard, so I found that a really light scrape is much more effective at getting a good image with the full sized patterns. All the patterns stamp very well...

The full size images are large! They are 17 x 22.5mm. I don't have to worry about the images not being wide enough for my thumbs or too short for my nails. Great size overall!
