Cici & Sisi Fruit and Flower Acrylic Stamping Plates

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a few of the newer Cici & Sisi acrylic stamping plates to share.  I believe these acrylic plates came out a few years ago as an alternative to the standard stainless steel plates.  Recently they've released 3 circle fruit-themed stamping plates.  Each plate has a different fruit of choice so if you like peaches, kiwis or strawberries (and who doesn't), you might like these plates.  The last two plates are what I really love from Cici & Sisi's plates - layered images!  There's two nature themed plates with florals, leaves, birds and butterflies.  Keep reading to check them out.

Whats Up Nails Black Chrome Powder and Stencil Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  I recently received the Black Chrome Powder from Whats Up Nails and I clearly thought it was a lot of fun because I ended up using it in a bunch of manis in conjunction with some of their stencils.  This powder is different than some of the other powders because it's less opaque so it doesn't change the color of the base so much as it gives it a chrome/pewter hue to it.  Follow the jump to see all the stencils I used it with and read more about the powder itself.

KBShimmer Launch Party Swatches and Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Okay I'm absolutely swooning over the most recent KBShimmer collection that I received from Color4Nails to swatch!  I can't say enough but I'm going to try.  Actually, I'm going to show you about a million photos because that's how many it took to capture just part of the beauty of the Launch Party magnetic multichrome polishes.  I had over 600 photos of this 9 piece collection.  I know I take a lot of photos when I'm swatching but this was the most and yet I still feel like I didn't do it justice.  I love magnetic polishes (they often feel like little galaxies on my nails) PLUS these have multichrome shifts AND there's a holographic topper which really does turn them into little galaxies.  Keep reading to see plenty of pics (to get a better idea of the multichrome nature) and see photos of that holo topper in direct light...over every single one of the others!

Moonflower Polish Sweet Dreams - Fantasmic Flakies Group Custom

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Lately it seems that many Facebook groups are doing group custom polishes which is lucky for us.  These customs are often incredibly gorgeous.  That's the case for the polish I'm posting about today - the Fantasmic Flakies polish of the month, Sweet Dreams from Moonflower Polish.  Moonflower Polish is known for making awesome stamping polishes but this is NOT a stamping polish.  But it does prove that she makes beautiful regular polish as well.  You are going to have to join the Facebook group (which is the only way to get your paws on it) because you're going to want this polish!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Things That Are Round

Hey there!  I hope everyone is having a great weekend so far!  Yesterday was the day for 26 Great Nail Art Idea's "Things That Are Round" prompt but I was too late getting my DD post done to blog twice so here we have it today.  Turns out there's so many things that are round but I went with the biggest...planets!  I have a set of planet glasses that my sister bought that inspired me to try out a bit of freehand for these.  Hope you like them!

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Delush Polish

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Well it's the final day The Digit-al Dozen's Indie Love week and I'm topping off the week with yet another indie that I adore.  Just last week I gave my review of Delush Polish's 5th anniversary collection and I spouted all sorts of admiration for both the brand and the lady behind the brand.  I haven't met her personally but Adrianna has so much love for her brand and her family that I just have to assume she's got a wonderful heart.  I don't know if everybody knows this but Delush, in addition to making great polish, also has some lovely stamping plates so my final post uses both polish AND plates from the same brand.

The Digit-al Dozen does Indie Love - Moonflower Polish and Fab Ur Nails

Hey there!  Today I'm continuing The Digit-al Dozen's Indie Love with two more indie brands that I truly adore.  Moonflower Polish is a relatively new brand (just over a year old) started by Nadia of Mama Hearts Polish.  She took her love of stamping all the way into actually making polish, mainly stamping polish.  Having attempted to make exactly two polish at Indie Expo Canada last year, I can tell you that that's true dedication!  Most of her polishes are meant to stamp but I also love using them as base polish which I did here.  Over that I stamped with a Fab Ur Nails plate, a brand from the Philippines run by another lovely lady, Johanne.  Her plates have always been flawless for me so I really wanted to include them this week as well.
