Simple Stamping Designs Feat. Cienna Rose Beauty

**contains PR products**

I’ve been having such fun this past week playing not only with the beautiful Cienna Rose polishes that were kindly sent to me a bit back, but also with stamping! I used to really struggle with stamping, for the life of me I just could not do it. But after months and months and months of trying, I finally succeeded and since that day it has become the easiest and most preferred type of nailart for me. 

If you follow me on any of my social media’s you may have seen these designs already, but today I wanted to break down a bit further of what products I used and a few tricks too...

 

Design #1

Cherry Blossom

For this design I started with two coats of Pink Lemonade and a coat of Sech Vite. Once my nails had dried I grabbed my Born Pretty plate BP-L015 and black stamping polish ‘kind of black’ by Colour Alike and picked up the branch design. Once the branches were laid I moved onto the cherry blossom type flower design. For this I used Colour Alike’s ‘kind of white’, and once all was dry, I added my final coat of Seche to seal it all in. 

Turned out alright didn’t it? Better than expected haha! 

 

Design #2

Hearts and Snowflakes

Here I have used Happily Ever After, and used the same white stamping polish along with Born Pretty stamping plate BP-L018.

Unfortunately this design makes it so obvious that my nails are different lengths at the moment - I just cant bear to chop them all down yet - but I will, I promise!

 

Design #3

Squiggles

The base colour I chose for this design is Luxe, again by Cienna Rose. I got a bit giddy and did a bit of double stamping... 

To do this I used the Born Pretty Stamping plate BP-L005 and used the squiggle image with the same white Colour Alike stamping polish as above. Once I was happy with the placement, I used the same squiggle image, only this time with the black stamping polish as used above, then sealed it all in again with my Seche. 

I love how Luxe peeks through the squiggles with those beautiful iridescent pink glitters.

 

Design #4

Flowers

I really like how these turned out, how about you? The base colour used is Beach, Please and I used the same stamping plate as above, BP-L005, only this time I chose this floral design.

To give it a little bit more twinkle where the flowers are, I dotted on Nails Inc Electric Lane, a beautiful pure holographic polish. 

You will probably notice that I tend to stick to the same kind of routine when stamping - start with two coats of chosen colour then top with Seche, allow to dry, stamp design, allow to dry, then seal it all in again... with Seche! 

I've also been very impressed with my Colour Alike stamping polishes, I'm new to the brand but I've found that they have great pigment which makes creating these designs even easier.  

Which is your favourite out of the four? 

If you've made it this far and stuck with me to the end of this post, make sure you have entered the HUGE giveaway I've got going on over on Instagram!
