Mani Monday: Stamping With MoYou The Pro 6 Plate

Mani Monday MoYou The Pro Collection Plate 6

With the cold weather, I thought I would do a brighter mani to make me feel like it was closer to Spring.  I picked up MoYou London The Pro 06 from Trade Secrets before Christmas (heads up, their website shows The Pro XL 06 but they stock the regular 06 plate with smaller stamps).  i thought the plant/leaf type designs would be a nice change and a fresh bright look.
