Messy Mansion Plates & Stamping Polishes Review

Thursday, October 08, 2015 5 Comments A+ a-

I have more beautiful plates to show you today; this time from Messy Mansion. I don't think I would even need an introduction to this brand, but Messy Mansion is an Aussie stamping brand run by the lovely Julia McGowan. I'm already a proud owner of few of their plates, and their stampers are my all-time favourite. I was super excited when Julia contacted me about product review, and she kindly sent me 8 plates and the newly released stamping polishes.

Before I go into review, here are the links to Messy Mansion store and SNS:

今日もまたまた素敵な製品のご紹介。今回はMessy Mansionです。もう紹介の必要もないくらいですが、Messy Mansionはオーストラリアベースのスタンピングブランドで、オーナーはJulia McGowanさん。スタンピングを始めた超初期の頃からここのブランドにはお世話になっており、私が最も愛用しているスタンパーもMessy Mansionのものです。そんなわけで、Juliaさんから製品レビューの依頼が来た時は非常に感慨深いものがありました。今回送っていただいたものはプレート8枚と、最近新しくリリースされたスタンピングポリッシュです。

レビューに入る前に、Messy MansionのショップとSNSへのリンクはこちら。

These are what I received. 8 round plates, scrapers, and 4 stamping polishes.


I'll show you the stamping plates first. Messy Mansion round plates are 7cm in diameter and are bigger than the standard round plates (Konad, Bundle Monster, BP, Pueen, etc) on the market. Each plate is priced at $7 (US dollar). You can see all the Messy Mansion round plates on this product page. It's going to be pic heavy, so click 'Read More' to continue reading!

まずはプレートからお見せします。Messy Mansionの丸プレートは直径7cm。ご覧のように、Konad、Bundle Monster、BP、Pueenなど、他のブランドの丸プレートよりも大きいです。プレートの価格は1枚7ドル(米ドル)。Messy Mansionの丸プレートはこちらのページで購入可能です。「Read more」をクリックして続きをどうぞ。

Below are a photo of each plate, followed by paper swatch. Paper swatch is done using Ya Qin An Black & Navy stamping polishes, and Messy Mansion stampers.

以下、各プレートの写真と紙swatchを続けてお見せします。紙swatchはYa Qin An BlackとNavyのスタンピングポリッシュ、そしてMessy Mansionのスタンパーで行っています。

MM61 is a pizza themed plate. How unique is this? Every image stamped beautifully. I repeated the 'Royal Pizza' stamp twice (middle & bottom right), because I mis-stamped first time. For every plate I show you, I included a measurement of some of the images on the plate, so you have an idea of how they translate to your nails. As you can see, the pizza guy is a bit too big for one nail, so you might want to put him across two nails.

MM61はピザテーマのプレート。ユニークでイイですね(゚∀゚)。どの柄も綺麗にスタンプしました。「Royal Pizza」の柄はスタンプミスしてしまったので2回やりました(中央と右下)。お見せする各プレートの一部の柄にサイズを記しておいたので、ご自分の爪の大きさに合うかの目安にしていただければと思います。ピザ職人のお兄ちゃんは1つの爪には大きすぎるので、2つの爪にまたがる感じで使えるのではと思います。

MM62 is a tea themed plate. Isn't it the cutest plate?? That girl on the left is so adorable! The full size image is 2.3cm x 1.7cm, and they are perfect for long nails. I love that the images on this plate are great for reverse stamping/decal as well.

MM62はお茶テーマのプレート。もう色々と可愛すぎるこのプレート~!左の女の子とかティーカップとか・・。フルサイズの柄は2.3cm x 1.7cmと長い爪の方にも最適。全体的に色付け&decalができるようになっているのもポイント高いです。

MM64, ocean plate. Another great plate with a good combination of large and small images. Again, beautifully etched thus beautifully stamped.


MM65, birds and flowers. Such a fun plate, and those doodle style images are super cute. Can you spot the two big birds? 


MM67, a beautiful plate with a mythology feel. The lady in the middle is 2.8cm tall from top to waist, so it's quite big. Wish I could get more variety of images, but it's a gorgeous plate nonetheless.


MM71, sugar skull plate. Wow wow wow! So detailed, and every fine line stamps beautifully as well. I wish the images are a bit smaller, but this is so perfect for this season!


MM73, henna plate. Henna images are done by so many stamping brands, yet these images are unique and utterly beautiful. Four big images are quite large though, so you may want to use parts of them to translate to your nails.

ヘナ柄満載のMM73。ヘナ柄スタンプは既にたくさんのスタンピングブランドから出てきますが、Messy Mansionのものはやはり格別に美麗ですね。4つあるメインの柄はかなり大きいので、部分使いということになると思います。

Last one, MM74, fairy plate. I'm so enchanted by that elvish lady <3 This is actually my first plate with fairies on!


As you can see, I have zero etching problem with these plates, and every single image stamps beautifully. I wouldn't be surprised though as I have never had any quality issues with Messy Mansion products in the past. Images are unique and beautiful, and you can see that Julia puts a lot of effort into designing these plates.

ご覧いただいたとおり、8枚のプレートはどれも彫りの問題はなくどの柄も綺麗にスタンプしました。Messy Mansionの製品で品質上の問題があったことは過去に一度もないので、まさに期待していたとおりの結果でした。柄もユニークで美麗なものが多く、オーナーのJuliaさんが時間と手間暇をかけて丁寧にデザインしているのが伺えるかと思います。

Moving onto scrapers. These scrapers come with Accessory Kit 2.0 (product page), and the size is of credit card, 8.6cm x 5.4cm. You can read more about this Kit on my review post here.

続いてスクレイパー。これらの3枚のスクレイパーはAccessory Kit 2.0(製品ページはこちら)の一部で、大きさはクレジットカードサイズ(8.6cm x 5.4cm)。このキットのレビューはこちらを参照してください。

The flexibility is all different for these scrapers, so you can choose one that works best for you. My personal preference is the least flexible one, but I know many girls like flexible ones like the middle and the right.


Finally, stamping polishes. The product page is here. These are the very first Messy Mansion stamping polishes, all 5-free, vegan, and manufactured in Australia. Each bottle is 15ml and priced at $10. If you watch this YouTube video by Julia, you'll realise how much time and efforts she has put in to create these. 

最後にスタンピングポリッシュのご紹介。製品ページはこちら。Messy Mansion初のこれらのポリッシュはすべて5フリー、vegan(動物由来の成分なし)であり、製造はオーストラリア国内で行われています。各ボトルは15mlで値段は10ドル。JuliaさんによるこちらのYouTubeビデオを観ていただくと分かるように、かなりの時間と試行錯誤を重ねて作られています。

And here are the test swatch on black and white paper. From left - Carbon (on white paper)/Chalk (on black paper) - Soft Gold - Sterling. Stamping plate is Bunny Nails BuNa-A. They all stamp nice and bold. I like the antique look of Soft Gold and Sterling on black paper.

そしてこちらが黒と白の紙の上でのテスト。左からCarbon(白の紙上)/Chalk(黒の紙上)- Soft Gold - Sterling。スタンピングプレートはBunny Nails BuNa-A。どちらの紙の上でも綺麗な発色です。Soft GoldとSterlingは黒ベースだとアンティークっぽい雰囲気で素敵ですね。

I got curious to see how Soft Gold compares to my other gold stamping polishes, so here are the comparison over white and black. From left; Messy Mansion Soft Gold - Mundo de Uñas Gold - Hit the Bottle To Have and To Gold. They are all different colours, yay! 

Soft Goldに関しては他の金のスタンピングポリッシュと比較してみました。左から、Messy Mansion Soft Gold - Mundo de Uñas Gold - Hit the Bottle To Have and To Gold。どれも違う色で嬉しい(゚∀゚)

As for formula, Messy Mansion polishes are not thick or gloopy, and very easy to work with. I have them for about a week now and there's no sign of separation. I need to shake up Mundo de Uñas Gold vigorously before use as it separates quite badly, but you don't need to do that with Messy Mansion stamping polishes.

As for drying time, I tested to see if they could stamp 5 seconds after pickup, and yes I could pretty much stamp the whole image with that wait time, except for Soft Gold which dries a touch faster than the others. This means you don't need to work extra fast, and have a bit of time lining up images before transferring image onto your nails. 

フォーミュラに関して。Messy Mansionのポリッシュはもったりすることもなく非常に扱いやすいです。受け取って1週間ほど経ちますが、分離も見られません。Mundo de Uñas Goldは分離が激しいので使う前によく振らないとだめですが、Messy Mansionのポリッシュはその必要はありません。

乾く速さについて。「柄をスタンパーでピックアップしてから5秒後にスタンプ出来るか」という観点でテストしてみたところ、Soft Gold以外は5秒後も柄全体が転写されました。Soft Goldは一部柄が欠けたりしたので、多少乾きが早いようです。ということで、ピックアップ後急いでスタンプしなくても多少柄の位置を調整する時間が取れるということになります。

So there you have it! Hope my review is helpful to someone who are thinking about expanding their stamping collection. Be sure to check Messy Mansion website as they carry a lot more stamping plates and tools. I'm super happy to have these, and can't wait to start using them!

ということで、またも画像いっぱいでお届けしましたが、どなたかの参考になれば幸いです。Messy Mansionはプレートやツールがかなり充実しているので、一度Webサイトを覗いてみてはと思います。大好きなMessy Mansionのグッズが増えて非常に嬉しい限り。今後どんな風に使って行こうか楽しみです。
