Bundle Monster Creative Polish set 3

Greetings everyone! Today we have some stamping polish!

So I received this nail polish set as a gift from a friend (Shout out to Kim!) It is the Bundle Monster Creative Polish set 3. There are two other sets as well that are available on the website. The sets themselves retail at $15.99 USD or $3.99 USD for each polish. Set 3 contains six colors Electromagnetic (B137), Optical Illusion (B138), Visionary (B139), Wavelengths (B140), Seeing Rainbows (B141), and Chromo (B142). All of the colors in this set have a metallic sheen to them.

The consistency of these polishes is just like any other nail polish, because it is a stamping polish I had assume the consistency would be thicker.

Please note: Bundle Monster cannot ship the polishes internationally so they can only be shipped within the US.

All the images were stamped with my Fab ur nails XL stamper

The colors aren’t exactly impressive when stamped over black.I have had better results with polishes that don’t claim to be stamping polishes. However these polishes can be used as a base color and then stamped over with any color. These colors really don’t impress me as much when you have Mundo de Unas stamping polishes or even the new Bundle Monster stamping polishes from the weekend warrior collection.

Just for comparison take a look

I would love to say that the stamping polish looks this vibrant without flash but it doesn’t it looks very subtle and unless you look at it carefully you probably wouldn’t notice it.

OPI- Do you lilac it?

Neutral Stamping

IMG_7829

Greetings everyone! Today i have what i consider to be a more neutral manicure.

Products:

Morgan Taylor- go ahead and grow base coat

Essie- In stitches

Morgan Taylor- Vixen in a mask

Moyou London- xl pro collection 02 stamping plate

Seche Vite- Top coat

I used two coats of Essie- in stitches but you could easily get away with one, Im wondering if i could use this as a possible stamping polish. ill do some testing later.

IMG_7727

the polish i used for stamping was morgan taylors vixen in a mask. I honestly did this on a whim thinking just maybe it could be a stamping polish and it worked. Vixen in a mask can be used as a one coat polish making it perfect for stamping.

Below is the exact image i used and i honestly had never thought about using it but it stamps perfectly. The Moyou plates i have all are etched deeply and perfectly.

Now that i think about this mani and really look at it i cant help but feel like it looks a lot like the packaging for Bath and Body works Velvet sugar which is currently being discontinued at the end of the semi annual sale. I guess i spent so much time in there that my mani was inspired by it.

ORLY Review: Elsbeth’s Rose

I bought this color while Sally’s had the 50% off clearance nail polish.

I’m not sure how i feel about this color personally and i only wore it for a few days.

This color is a creme pink with what seems like a purple undertone, there is also some little micro shimmer that’s silver.

I used two coats in the pictures below. You could get away with one but I always prefer two. I had almost no application problems with this color. The trick is to wait for it to dry before you add that second coat or it will take the first coat off.

Viva la Manicure

So i haven’t been on much and i apologize there is a lot going on in my life at the moment.

Today i bring you a tutorial! woo! i love tutorials by other bloggers and i hope mine helps anyone who sees it.

Products:

Seche Vite

Cheeky- Viva Mexico Jumbo Plate

Morgan Taylor- go ahead and grow

China Glaze- shocking pink

China Glaze- flip flop fantasy

Morgan Taylor- doo Wop

Wet n Wild- Black

 

First paint your nails with  a coat of the yellow. if you don’t have it or are doing it with a different colors, use white or the lightest color.

IMG_7243

Next put drops of the china glaze shocking pink and china glaze flip flop fantasy and some dots of the morgan taylor doo wop like so

IMG_7247

use your stamper and squish the colors. When you pick it up it should look like this

IMG_7250

Stamp it on to your nails, either just kind of roll it on or wait a few seconds for it to dry a little bit. If you want an area to have a certain color you could do the step above with just one color and place it where you want.

IMG_7251

I cleaned up a little bit before i stamped on the image from the Viva Mexico plate by Cheeky.

IMG_7252

IMG_7253

just clean up a bit more and add a top coat for your finished look.

Plum Milk by Skinfood

So not too long ago I bought this nail polish off Ebay, I saw the color and i had to have it. It was only about $4-$5. When you get to the website it says “Enriched with vitamins and keratin, this long-lasting nail polish protects dehydrated and rough nails, with enhanced shine.” Now i have no idea if that’s true i haven’t checked these claims out.

The nail polish applies smoothly and is a somewhat sheer formula. The polish itself isn’t opaque and a little bit of a creme jelly feel to it.

At the end of two coats i found my smile line showing through enough that it would bug me. I’m all about the opaque polish life. I love the color of it but would i use it on its own? probably not.

Plum Milk Roses

Hello my lovely internet friends! Today i bring you a mani done with a polish iv’e had for maybe a year now honestly. So this mani was done using the MoYou london plate Tourist collection-07. The image i used is the one with the roses. I love this plate but honestly i don’t use it as much as i wish i did.

The featured nail polish is Plum Milk by Skinfood.

products:

Sally beauty supply base coat

Plum Milk by Skinfood

Moyou London Tourist collection-07

Seche Vite Top Coat

Bonus: i used a matte coat after a day later since i have never used it and it doesn’t make a ton of difference but i like the look of it.

I’ll do a review on Plum Milk later

Here’s the mani 🙂

Purple Gradient/Ombre

So I have had this idea for a while for a purple gradient, however i don’t feel as if im too great at gradients. To get better at gradients i have to practice though don’t i?

Today’s products:

Beauty Secrets Base Coat

OPI a grape fit

ORLY Wild Wisteria

Seche Vite top coat

cosmetic wedge

 

So i started out with A grape fit on the whole nail prior to sponging on wild wisteria with a cosmetic wedge. Ignore the nail oil in the first picture my nails need some type of moisturizing treatment soon. The winter love to make my skin dry and icky.

Here it is indoors

China Glaze Ruby Pumps!

Hello my lovey nail polish lovers!

What a week i have started school again. I have recently changed nail shape due to the fact my nails weren’t doing to well with the squoval shape.

Today i bring you China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps! yay glitter! It’s such a beautiful red on the darker side. I don’t know why i hadn’t pick this color up before. The formula is great I used 2-3 coats and it’s opaque. I had no problems while applying it and it didn’t dry gritty feeling. The glitters in this polish are pretty fine and you can see them below in the macro shot.

I used seche vite as my top coat and Morgan Taylor’s Go Ahead and Grow Base Coat

Since the glitter in it is so fine its very easy to take off. There are no problems whatsoever when removing it. When it comes to glitter it’s one of the things i dislike the most how stubborn it is. Then you have cotton ripping off the cotton ball or pad, its a mess. However i can say i had no problems with this and I’ll probably be wearing it a lot more.

What do you think of my nail shape? I have basically only had squoval shaped nails. It’s new i think i kind of like it.

 

Soft Sienna Silks by China glaze Review! (Bonus stamping NOTD )

Hello my lovely people of the internet!  I’m sorry i haven’t been able to blog more but i really just have a lot to do for school and no time.

Today i used is called Soft Sienna Silks by China Glaze

the formula is watery and its thin, it will take at least 3 coats to get to an opaque color. This is a bronze with tiny specs of shimmer. The shimmer gives it a little boost so its not a boring bronze/coppery color.  It’s very warm and i was honestly a little worried about how it would look with my skin.

IMG_3769

It took three coats in order to reach an opacity i am comfortable with. I really don’t like having my nails smile line show through, so i usually like nail polish that is opaque in 2-3 coats.

IMG_3752

here is a picture close up of the color and you can see the sparkles/shimmer in it, so pretty.
