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?

I started with two coats of OPI- Look at my bow! and stamped over it with OPI- Hey Baby from the Gwen Stefani collection. The ring finger has two coats of OPI- Starry-Eyed for Daniel. On top of Starry-Eyed for Daniel I used the same OPI- Look at my bow! to fill in the bow and Veniques- Wingtip White to fill in Hello Kitty.

Here’s a picture with flash

Now for a close up of Starry-Eyed for Daniel. Two coats is enough to cover your nail. It’s more opaque than I thought. I usually stay away from glitters because of how annoying they are to take off. I’ll let you know how it goes with this one.

Where have you guys gotten inspiration recently?

 

 

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

If anyone wants a tutorial on this comment below 🙂

China Glaze Shocking Pink

I bought this color once before and i guess i just didn’t have the patience to use this color. It would take me a few coats to get it because i would keep being impatient and the color would come off if i went over it without waiting for it to dry. After i ran out of it i bought Pink Voltage by China Glaze as a hopeful replacement but i honestly didn’t like it as much as this color. Pink Voltage had a somewhat cool tinge to it. They  are both neon meaning they are kind of thin and streaky to apply. Shocking Pink applies in about 2-3 coats i used thicker coats. If you use thin coats you risk the color coming off when you pull the brush up. It dries to a matte finish alone but a top coat can remedy that. I will be repurchasing this color once i run out of it again. By the end of a few days not sure how many, the color came off in these flexible chips and I’m  not sure why. maybe it was the Seche Vite or the color itself but i felt i should include that. when i use it again ill update on what happens.
