Bundle Monster Polynesia Plates

Bundle Monster had a recent plate launch called Polynesia. They are sold individually or as sets, I decided to buy just two of them to try out. I chose floral themed plates because I can't seem to get enough floral plates.

I have tried these plates out and am happy to report that they all stamp beautifully! 

Here are a few manicures I have done using them!

RCM One step gel polish

Red Carpet Manicure has just come out with a new line of gel polish that only requires one step!
It is called Red Carpet Ready.
Here is what the bottle looks like.

From left to right is Natural Beauty,  Fashion Frenzy,  Break a Leg, and Mint to Be.

I decided to try Fashion Frenzy first, its a bright salmon color that really gets me in the mood for Summer.

I love how fast and easy this was to apply, no base coat or top coat is required! 
I started with clean, dry and slightly buffed nails, I used 2 coats of polish, cured each coat and that was it, not even a tacky layer to remove at the end. 
It is not meant to last as long as a traditional gel manicure, (7-10 days versus 14-21 days) but it feels just as strong and has a gorgeous shine. I haven't had any issues with chipping or peeling and have been wearing it for four days so far. 

****UPDATE for November 2015****
There are now 27 shades available in this line!
Pictured on my nails is Runway Strut

Bundle Monster XL Plates

Bundle Monster came out with XL versions of all their plates, there aren't any new images on these plates, but they have enlarged the images for those with longer and wider nails. I don't have wide nails and they aren't too long, but these still work great for me. 
I like that each plate has a variety of images from different collections, they are arranged in theme order, as you will see, they have put flowers together, holidays together, etc and each plate has a name that goes with the theme.
They are rectangle shaped, and like all their other plates have blue protective film that needs to be removed prior to use.

There a hard plastic back with their logo printed on it.

These are the following plates I chose to buy
Green Thumb is floral themed.

Knotty + Patched Love is Valentine's Day themed.

 Botanist Dream is a mixture of plants, leaves and swirls.

Party Like its 1776 is an Independence Day theme.

Beachy Keen is sea themed

Neptune's Bounty is another sea themed plate.

Holiday Favs has a mixture of holidays. 

Halloween Fanatic is Halloween themed.

I have tried images from each of these plates and they stamp beautifully. 

Here are a few manicures I've already done with them
