November 2021: Tropical Christmas

For November we received two beachy Christmas-themed plates, red and green stamping polishes and a green nail glitter! The designs on these plates are a nice mix of fun and festive. While the plates are more ‘non traditional’, they kept very traditional with the colours included in the box. Additionally, these stamping designs fill a void in the market for those who have Christmas, or the holidays, during their Summer season. They deserve representation too! The nail glitter is a very sparkly green that is sure to get you in the mood for the festive season!

One thing that I must note is that these plates seem to be etched differently. The designs pick up well (like normal), but they absolutely shred my cotton pads and are challenging to clean. I’m not sure what has changed, but I have never encountered this before with Maniology! It’s more of an annoyance than anything, but I do think it might make me less likely to use these plates because I know they’ll be a pain to clean, which you typically have to do a lot with stamping!

Mani #1

For this first mani I wanted to go all out with the beach theme but with Christmas colours!

Mani #2

For this mani I specifically wanted to find a creative way to use the green nail glitter that came in the box and I think this fits the bill! Those hula skirts couldn’t get any more festive!

Final Thoughts

I think these plates are so much fun and really add to my collection. I certainly don’t have anything like them already! I also love getting more staple stamping colours that are perfect for the holiday season! I just hope we don’t continue to see this new way of rough etching!
