Hehe #084 Stamping Plate Review - Plaids & Florals Collection

Hello lovelies!

I'm very excited to be bringing you the first of several stamping plate reviews for a new-to-me brand, aiyoohehe (hēhē for short)! I'd been eyeing off a few of their plates - especially the Harry Potter and Miyazaki collections - when I was put in touch with the lovely Siqi and Haiyan, the team behind aiyoohehe, and offered several plates of my choice to review. 

Today I'll be showing you some simple looks with one of the plates from their latest release, the Plaids & Florals collection. Here's what I was working with:

The plate has a great mix of unique designs so it jumped out at me immediately. The clash of big bold geometric patterns, beautiful delicate fine etching and splashy florals really appealed to me. All the plates I received came in a brown cardboard pouch for safe storage which I love, I hate the thought of the beautiful designs getting scratched! 

Let's see what I came up with using just this plate :D

First up is what I'd call a 'retro-futuristic' look - it looks like how someone in 1950 envisioned life in the future with the space-y metallics and sharp lines.

I used the image in the top right of the plate over LynB Designs Servitude and stamped with Hit the Bottle To Have and To Gold and Essie No Place Like Chrome. Pinky accent nail is Grace-full Nail Polish Silver & Gold.

I was really impressed with how the full image stamped on my ring finger - there were some bubbles which were my fault for having a fan on (I know! Stamping no-no!) but the image was so crisp and clean! I made the most of the curved edge to offset the image on my index and middle nail and I love the effect of that too.

Next is my pseudo-Donkey Kong Country look! Tell me they don't look like piles of bananas to be collected up by Donkey (or Diddy) Kong! 

I went full on DKC using Bettie Pain Scattered Floor, and stamped with Nail Stamping Queen Fluoro Yellow. Not the best colour for bananas, but the only yellow I had that stamps. Again, some minor bubbles, because, fan. I figured it out at this point and turned it off!

I made a decal of the flower on my stamper head, quickly removing any excess pattern and filling it with Celestial Cosmetics Leaf  as I wanted it to look like a banana tree - I think it works!

Finally I used the fabulous DNA-esque pattern from the top right of the plate to do some quick gradient stamping. This is a really versatile pattern, I tested it over an earthy toned dry brush mani I was wearing when I got the plates and stamped in black and it looked like reptile print!

I used Glittering Elements Enchanted Treasure as the base and stamped with Hit the Bottle Call a Plumber and Blue-tiful. 

All up, my first impressions are nothing but positive! The design and quality is absolutely fantastic and I had no problem picking up the images on either my medium-soft stamper or my squishy carbon stamper (both from Messy Mansion).
