I'm back after a little vacation I took last week for my birthday. I'm really excited to show you the few polishes I got as presents.
The first one is ILNP Paradox, I've been dying to try their polishes cause they're always so beautiful but I didn't want to spend that much money on one bottle so my husband got it for me. This is a clear base polish packed with multi-chrome flakies and tiny holographic specs.
I added an extra holo stamp cause you can never have too many sparkles.
Happy Friday Guys!!
I recently asked on my instagram if you wanted to see a spring or St. Patrick's Day mani and you decided spring so here it is. I really worked hard on this mani cause I wanted to use this design as my new banner and I think it turned out pretty cute for spring.
The stamp is from the Cici & Sisi 31 plate from their 6th set, stamped with MDU black and colored with polishes from the Deborah Lippmann Sweets for my Sweet collection. I'm really liking the colors and since I'm obsessed with pastels they were perfect. Check it out!
I have a fun design today, I've been wanting to find an image that would allow me to make a decal with the same background color so it would look like the colored parts where the stamp and I finally did on the Cici&Sisi 30 plate, yay!!
How fun and colorful is this mani? I made the decal using MDU black for the stamp and then colored the ribbons with Color Club Halo Hues shades. The background is also black to keep the focus on the colors. Love how this looks, I'm already thinking about other stamps where I can do something similar.
Have you ever tried to match the background with your stamp? Let me know in the comments.

I couldn't resist this stamp when I first saw it and I knew I was gonna make it work even in my small nails. I think it turned out great and the boy and girl kissing is the cutest thing ever, maybe I can re-use it next year for Valentine's and add some hearts with a red background, it would look cute, right?
For this mani I used Nubar Earthen as base color and Kleancolor Metallic Black for the kissing stamp from the Cici&Sisi29 plate. Accent white flowers are from the Cici&Sisi 28 plate.
I kinda like splitting my images in half and using them in 2 different fingers, it's less work and it looks so good cause they always compliment each other. More coming soon.

Today I have a very simple mani, sometimes when I do my nails I think that less is more and I need a break from all the crazy colors and decals I usually do, besides I saw this stamp and I just had to try it.
The base color for this mani is just Wet and Wild Correction White, just 2 coats needed for full opacity, then I stamped the arrows using MDU Mint and Cici&Sisi26 plate, on my ring finger I added a star that comes in the same plate right next to the arrow, so it's still just one stamp.
I like how this looks, simple and clean but the star adds a bit of fun to it and makes it look like a medal. What do you think?

I have a more subtle and delicate mani today, I usually do bright colors but sometimes I also like to tone it down and have a palette cleanser on my nails, even though this design also has color on it.
The stamp is from the Cici&Sisi plate 27, I did a decal for my ring finger using 2 different colors for the image and then for the rest of my fingers I used the leafs part of the image only just to make it like an accent on the edge. Base color is China Glaze Friends Forever, right? stamped with MDU Spring Green and Nabu. I tried to add another flower to my middle finger with MDU Redish but I didn't like it, what do you guys think?
Hope you liked this design. If you have any questions, requests or suggestions on how should I paint my nails next let me know in the comments.
Thank you for reading <3
I have my first official fall mani on the blog today, as much as I love bright colors I've been more inclined to dark or subtle dusty shades lately and I'm glad I can start wearing them now that it makes sense.
For this design I used OPI Get Cherried Away from the Coca Cola collection and added the leafy decals from the Cici&Sisi26 plate. The stamp was made with MDU Bones and colored with Kleancolor Metallic Yellow and Butter London Marbs. I wish the intricate design of the leaves would show up more on the stamp, I guess the color I used for it is too light and blends with the metallic, I still like the combination of colors. What do you think?
I'm definitely gonna try more dark colors now, cause I'm fair skinned and they make my nails pop. Or so I want to believe...

I have a new design using my Cici&Sisi plates, this time I'm using the plate #26. This plate has tons of different patterns and it made it difficult to choose one to use that's why I chose 2 :)
If you wanna see my full review of this stamping plate set you can find it here.
For this mani I used Orly Hot Tropics, which is one of my favorite neon shimmery purples of all time. Then I used MDU Barbie and Black for the 2 different stamps. What do you think?
I really enjoyed this design, it's simple but different and fun, and you can mix any colors you like to match your clothes or your mood. Hope you like it.
Thanks for reading! ♥
Today I have another cute design from my Cici & Sisi 25 plates. The more I work with the images in these plates the more I like them, they're just too much.
This little bunny was made using the decal technique, the stamp was made with Kleancolor Metallic Black and then I used a few colors to paint it: NOPI Selena, NOPI Lay it on the Lime, Nubar Yellow Primrose, and Butter London Silly Billy. Base color for this accent nail is Color Club Meet me at the Rink.
The squishy orange polish on my nails is Butter London Silly Billy, I only used two coats for full coverage of this gorgeous crelly and stamped the accents with MDU Bones. The little bow like stamps are actually from the same bunny image on the plate.
I'm actually in love of how this design turned out, I think it would be awesome for easter next year (but I'm getting ahead of myself)
Don't forget to check out my full review on these Cici&Sisi plates here.

I was recently contacted by the lovely Jackie from Cici & Sisi cause she wanted to use some of my pics (so exciting!) we kept talking and she offered to send me their latest stamping plate set. So here you have it.
The set comes packaged in a cute box to protect it from harm during shipping and inside you find the super cute book-like case with a marshmallow like stamper and a metal scraper which makes it perfect for starting nail artists. To be honest I'm not fan of the marshmallow stampers, they don't work for me, no matter which brand I try, so I personally prefer the firm ones and can't say if this one works or not. Sorry!
The set comes with 6 plates all with a hard plastic back cover and a blue film on front to protect them from scratches. The designs are super cute and you get a great variety. Images are big enough for long or wide nails, sometimes a bit too big for mine but I still love them. They are properly etched and the images come out crisp and perfect. You can buy it from amazon or the Ciciandsisi.com website.
Check out all the plates on the slide show below.
the first design I tried Re these super cute kitties from the Cici & Sisi 25 plate. As base color I used OPI Rumple's Wigging stamped with MDU Bones. For the accent nail I used the decal technique with MDU Black and Nubar Yellow Primrose. Love the little kitties 💕
I can't wait to keep playing with these plates. Will you be getting it? What's your favorite plate from the set?
Thanks for reading! 😘
