Today I want to share my review of one of my most loved nail-art products: the Mash Nails stamping plate set 26-50 (the 2nd set). I've had this set for almost a year now and they're very well used & loved. At the time I was in the market for a full stamping set (I only had maybe 5 or 6 Konad plates) and I bought the Mash set based of Martas positive review HERE. Since purchasing the Mash set, I haven't seen another set of plates I would rather have. These plates have a wide variety of great versatile images.
The quality is very high, the plates are sturdy metal with paper backing. The images are fully etched, and I don't have transfer issues. One little thing worth noting is the images with a large positive space can take a lot of polish, when you run your stamper over those images you can squeeze excess polish out the sides. Specifically I am referencing the clover on plate 30, the checkers on 38 and the stars on 49, a light hand is needed when transferring to the stamper. You can see an example of what I'm referring to HERE on the thumb.
32-37 (sorry, they are arranged backwards!)
Some of the plates are very well used! I bet you can tell which images are my favourites lol. If I had to narrow it down to my 5 top plates I would choose 29, 30, 37, 45, 46... with 37 & 45 being my top 2 plates.
That being said, I wanted to test out some images I've never tried before and give you guys a candid look at what the images look like. I stamped 10 different images on my nails, and they are all my first use with that particular image. All are stamped over Cult Nails Flushed using Essie No Place Like Chrome.
I purchased my set from the Mash Nails web site, but pricing has changed a bit over the months. I paid $25, plus $10 shipping... so it worked out to be $1.40 per plate... totally worth it!
I highly recommend this set to any one thinking about getting into stamping.
