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.

I have been thinking about tribal nails for awhile now and I've seen this type of design everywhere and I finally decided to give it a try and it didn't dissapoint. I wore it for several days and I was so sad when I had to remove it, does that happen to you too?
To achieve the look I used the dry brush technique, I had to re do a few nails cause I'm still learning but I'm proud cause I didn't gave up and the results were pretty good. I started with a white base using Wet and Wild Correction tape , then I used Sinful Colors in Cotton Candy, Sweet Tooth, Sweet Nothing and Essie Chills and Thrills and the dry brush technique for multi color base. Finally I stamped the design with MDU Bones and the MoYou London Explorer 24 plate.
I liked the results so much that I'll be trying this technique again with different colors for sure. What do you guys think? Do you have a favorite technique at the moment?

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.

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.

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! 😘
I recently bought my first Gogo Only plate from Amazon, it's been sitting on my wishlist forever but I never pulled the trigger and got it till my boyfriend did it for me and I really like it so far. I was worried that the designs weren't etched deep enough or that the quality wouldn't be up to par but I don't have any complaints so far.
The plate is huge and has tons of designs to work with, 40 full nail images and 10 small ones, it would make a great first plate for someone starting to stamp or a great addition to any collection cause it has stuff for everyone. It comes in a cute sleeve for safe keeping and with the blue film to protect it from scratches. The images are big enough for larger nail beds and they come out crisp and beautiful. My only recommendation is to use MDU or some special stamping polish that doesn't dry too fast for the finer lines.
For my first design I chose on of the ladies on the bottom right cause they looked fun to use as a decal. I had to cut the design in half since my nails are small and it wouldn't fit completely but I love how it turned out. Base color is NOPI Selena; on my index and pinky I added a pattern using this same plate and MDU Bones.
I'm really enjoying this mani, my friends at work were really impressed with how detailed the image is and so was I. Can't wait to play around with this plate some more. What do you think? Would you but it?

I finally took the time to do my nails and create a mani I wasn't ashamed to post about haha.
I've always wanted to do tropical flowers like hibiscus cause they just make you think about the beach and vacation and everything tropical, so I was going through my stamping plates and found these 2 stamps that look perfect. The plate is Cici&Sisi 15 from their yellow set which you can find here.
For the base green I used Color Club Under the Blacklight stamped with MDU Spring Green. The hibiscus are decals stamped with MDU Pastel Yellow.
I really like how this turned out, maybe I would use a different color for the flower stamp to make the lines more noticeable. What do you think?
