Here are the swatches and review of Cici&Sisi plates set 2. I purchase this set of plates on Amazon.com for $29.99. This set comes with 6 Jumbo size plates numbered 07-12, two sheets of stickers, a stamper and cute organizer.
Here are the scan of the plates:
Quick swatches of plates using Finger Paints Scenery greenery & Bettina Brown :
* Remember this is my opinion and everyone has had different results upon trying the new Cisi&Sisi plates.
1. Stamper: A very good stamper, but you might have to prime it. Just use a white nail buffing block and lightly buff the surface to remove the shine. Then try out the stamper to see if it picks up. Remember it might not be necessary to prime the stamper, try it out first. Most of my nailstampaddicts friends didn't have to prime their stamper, but I did. I think its great that this set provides a stamper. Its a awesome set if you want to start nail stamping.
2. Scraper: Honestly no, its not good. The scraper is metal and not even like a Konad stamper. It just doesn't do the job and might damage your plate. Just use a plastic gift card, old credit card, Konad scraper or anything similar.
3. Organizer- Its awesome that this set has a organizer. It has 10 plastic sleeves. If you have similar size plates you can add them to this organizer, so that's a plus for me.
4. Stickers- I haven't tried them yet, but they look cute.
5. Plates- I didn't have a problem with this set, no problems with the corner images like I did with Cici&Sisi Set #1 which I reviewed here . This set also has variety of beautiful images, and they are well etched as well. Each plates has 24 full size images and approximately 12 small images. I personally love Konad's metal scraper, but for this set, a plastic card worked better for me. When stamping I always recommend trying different stampers or scrapers to make a image plates work. If one stamper or scraper doesn't work, try another, don't give up! :) Over all I think Cici&Sisi plates are becoming one of my favorite sets. I personally love the full image designs. I hope you enjoy the swatches, as you see above they stamp beautifully.
