Maniology Women's Empowerment Stamping Plates

Affiliate Code

Hey there!  I'm currently sitting in the airport waiting for my flight to Maui (woohoo!) and I thought it'd be the perfect time for a Maniology review (since they are lucky enough to be based in Hawaii).  They recently released two Women's Empowerment plates.  Our nail polish community has a ton of great women in it (and some great men as well).  I think it's lovely that they designed two plates to celebrate us.  Since there are so many wonderful indie maker women, I thought it'd be nice to focus my mani's on them as well so I used all polishes made by some powerful women.  I wish I had enough time to do manis with all of the great women makers but I could only focus on a few for this post.  But in case any of you are reading this, we appreciate you all!  And for anyone who is interested in purchasing any Maniology products, please use the coupon code COPY10 to save 10% (or $5 off your first Mani X Me box)

M046 Self Made

M046 has 6 full nail designs along with quite a few inspiring text images on it.  Plenty of these are not gender-specific but sometimes us women need to remember that we are also brave, bold and strong, etc.   I didn't have issues with the etching of any of these images.  They all certainly upheld the standards I have come to expect from Maniology's quality.  

Products Used:
Base: Gradient of Girly Bits Cosmetics Love Yourself First, Beautiful Soul and 
My Peony Has A First Name
Stamping: Mundo de Unas Black
Girly Bits Cosmetics Greyzed and Confused (with a bit of It's Near Leaf All)
Top Coat: Tonic Polish Liquid Velvet

Products Used:
Base: Moonflower Polish Do Not Read The Latin!  
Random gradient with Pool Floaty, Dip In The Pool, Popsicle and Sprinkles.
Stamping: Moonflower Polish Noche (reverse stamping filled with the same polishes as above)
Top Coat: Vibrant Vinyls Fast and Hard

M047 also have a ton of accent images (mostly text) along with one giant buffet style image.  I was stumped at how to use the big image but I ended up loving the mani I did with it.  With a couple of the accent images with really fine lines (like "The future is female" and "Do it like a girl"), I found I needed to use a thick stamping polish.  That's not uncommon for me with fine images like this but do keep it in mind if you have any problems yourself.  

Products Used:
Base: Delush Polish Poisoned Vine
Stamping: Mundo de Unas Bronze (filled with KBShimmer Eclipse and Eyes White Open)
Top Coat: Vibrant Vinyls Fast and Hard

I seriously appreciate that Maniology has honoured all of us ladies for Women's History Month.  Not that we need a month to remember how awesome we are!  And you certainly don't need to only wear images like these in March!  If you're interested in these plates, feel free to use COPY10 to save yourself 10% off your order.
