As if your wallets really weren't screaming enough. Lol spare me spare me! Shirley the owner and creator behind the Dashica Beauty stamping plate brand and the very popular Infinity series is at it again. She just released a set of 20 new plates at the top of February and now here she is again releasing another 20 plates! Eep and I have to say as usual she has a few plates that really stand out from the crowd. Btw this is my 2nd Hot Off post from an indie brand since all the drama here last week. I can firmly say, though I have never posted a review of the Dashica plates, that Shirley is one of the most professional and respected international indie platemakers I've ever interacted with. I have purchased her plates both independently and in group buys. The quality is excellent and the service superior. So if you are worried about purchasing please don't. In addition, from now on I will only be posting press releases for companies I have worked with before or whose plates I own and can attest to their quality. I will also be posting a review for the Infinity plates at some point! Now let's take a look at her latest plates....
A bit basic for me I think, but also I have too many of these small singular design elements that for whatever reason I rarely end up using. Plate 129 is so odd and unique! I mean that in a good way. The girls look like dressmakers dolls or mannequins.
Who doesn't love owls and cupcakes and Hello Kitty? Lol these are all so "on trend" with what's popular on plates right now and yet somehow don't these images seem really different? It may be the backgrounds or how the owls are like dot art but I like it a lot. On plate 131 I love the little women in hats and the abstracts at the very bottom on the left and right.
Oh Amy Amy Amy. I am so so thrilled to see this music plate! Not to mention it has The Beatles. I don't recognize the lower band though I know they look familar but I'm blanking on the name or the other guy. Anyone?
Continuing the abstract trend then you look closer and see the nested sugar skulls. Clever clever! I also like the dreamcatcher ish image right in the lower middle. Plate 135 are truly just more abstracts. A person could never run out the with the number of them released every collection.
See what I mean? Abstracts for days and so so pretty! Plate 136 will definitely be mine. Maybe 137 as well though the eagles/falcons(?) are kind of intense looking. But look at the little ducklings!
An angelic meeting and an owl? Lol the components of her plates are sometimes so random.
Is that a cat and the Eiffel tower? A cat in Paris....lol again so random. I have come to realize there are so many crazy cat ladies in the nail polish universe and I find it odd. Lol cats and nail polish. Loving all the sunflower variations on 141.
Okay let me be honest and say I'm finding these faces peeking out of the flowers a bit creepy. Lol I don't know why but I'm getting full on Children of The Corn and it's killing me. And then the random bikini girl. The abstracty tribals next door save me ;)
It took me a minute looking at 144 to realize this is a plate of reverse mirror images. I really like the chevron star ones the most! And 145 is also a winner for me though I will admit I've seen that "pyramid steps" image about 2 or 3 times now on Handy plates and MoYou London plates. For whatever reason it doesn't translate over as cool onto the nails because a lot of the image gets cut off.
Anyhoo we are done! What do you think? A lot of interesting designs as always right? That Amy Winehouse and Frozen plate are calling to me like nobody's business! In any case I believe these plates are available for purchase now on the Dashica Beauty website. They retail for 4.99 Euros + shipping. Happy hunting, thanks for reading and I'll see you next post....
