MarianneNails are located in France, and you can change the language and currency in the upper right corner of the website.
The plates come in beautiful large cardboard sleeves glued on a piece of paper. Before use you need to remove them from the paper and remove the blue film on each plate. The sleeves are however not really useful after you started using the plates, they are so big.There are stamping instructions on the back of the paper.
The price for each plate is 6.50 Euro.
The plate size is 6 x 12 cm, and they have a plastic backing – however some of the plates have a larger backing that makes it difficult to store them in traditional plate holders, but it can be done but I’m afraid they will rip.The size of the patterns is 2 x 1.5 cm.
The etching is a little bit shallow = maybe not ideal for all beginners.
I use the small Bundle Monster plate holder to store my Marianne Nails plates, I have in each side one plate with the bigger backing and one with the smaller backing, and that works for me - see full review of the Bundle Monster plate holders HERE!
Let's have a look at some of the plates (click on the photos to enlarge them):
And a few manis created with Marianne Nails stamping plates:Take 49: Base Enchanted Polish Telenovela stamped with MoYou London Rosy Ribbon, plate Marianne Nails 50, stamper Marianne Nails Jumbo Clear Jelly.
Take 54: Base MAC Rain of Flowers stamped with Barry M Foil Effects 320, plate Marianne Nails 121, stamper Daschica Jumbo Clear Jelly.

Take 112: The base is Chanel Rouge Essentiel 500 stamped with Jolifin Snow White, plate Marianne Nails 77, stamper MoYou London XL Marshmallow Sticky.
So, what do I think:
There are really, really many beautiful patterns.
Cons (definitely just minor cons):
The etching is a little bit shallow = maybe not ideal for all newbies, but a little training will soon help.
The plastic backing on the plates has 2 different sizes, and that is a bit annoying since you cannot store all of them comfortably in normal plate holders for 6 x 12 cm plates.
The cardboard sleeve the plates come in is really beautiful, but not really useful after you removed the plate from the paper they are glued on to fit the big sleeve – but they really are beautiful.
The plate photos on the website have watermarks in several lines on each plate making it difficult to see the patterns – but there is a good looking glass to enlarge the patterns.
Overall I really like the plates, they have a lot of good things to offer.
