Bundle Monster Plates

I hope no one is sick of seeing stamping from me because I have Bundle Monster Plates, #201-225, to share with you today. I've had these plates for some time now but I haven't had a chance to use them. I really love the designs, and I can see myself reaching for these over other plates I have. They also have a new 2012 set of plates out now, which I hope to get soon. You can purchase there here at Bundle Monster or from Amazon for $21.99.

These come with a plastic film that you need to peel off before use.

There is  paper backing to protect from cuts.

Here is a manicure I did using plate BM-212, my base color is from Claire's magnetic polish, it doesn't have a name, I stamped with Sinful Colors Last Chance, and for the dots I used China Glaze You move me and a no name blue.

San Diego Zoo Inspiration

I recently returned from a nice getaway to San Diego with my husband and son. We spent a day at the San Diego Zoo and I was inspired by the beautiful patterns of some of the animals and I knew I needed to do a few manicures when we got home.

For my Giraffe design, I used China Glaze Fast Track as my base, stamped with China Glaze IX, using plate RA-107

For my leopard print design I used one coat of China Glaze Ingrid, followed by one coat of China Glaze Fast track, stamped with China Glaze IX using Mash plate 40 to see Fast Track on its own check it out here

For my Zebra design, I used China Glaze White on white as my base, stamped with China Glaze Liquid leather, using plate RA-113

MASH nail art image plates

I have a slight obsession with adding stamping to all my manicures, so when I saw these image plates I knew I would love them, and I do! These are the MASH nail plates, numbers 26-50, you can purchase here at MASH or on Amazon They are very affordable at $12.99 and they are worth the money for the quality you get, the images come out clear and crisp. Here are some close up views of each plate and a cute leopard print design I decided to try out.

Each plate comes in a pouch, with blue protective film that you need to remove before use

There is protective backing that prevents cuts

I used Mash plate 40, China Glaze Fast Track stamped with China Glaze IX, stay tuned for an upcoming post that includes more from this manicure
