Hey everyone! I received some nail mail! I ordered the Festival set that was released on March 10, 2016. It is available in a limited amount of quantities. Shipping on Bundle Monster is $2.95 (in the 50 states) and takes 4-7 business days. When you order over $25.00 USD the shipping is free. I ordered on 3/10/16 and the next day my purchase was shipped. The package itself was supposed to arrive on 3/15/16 but there was a delay with USPS.
So onto the review! I bring you the Bundle Monster Festival set 2 which was on sale for $24.99 USD from It’s intended price of $33.95 USD. The set contains 10 square stamping plates, 3 stamping polishes in Gobi You (B155), Empire Club (B156), and Astronomical (B157), and 5 sheets of water transfer decals. You can buy the individual components of the box set by itself and I have included links for those who would like to or cannot get the box set because of nail polish shipping restrictions. USPS will not allow polishes to be shipped internationally according to Bundle Monster.
The second I saw glitterfingersss manicure with the crystals I knew I HAD to have this set. There is at least 1 image on every plate I would use. Considering I’ve bought plates in the past for the hype and not because I’m totally in love with them, I’m really excited about these. There is a great mix of full image plates to little designs such as those on plate BM-S305. The set itself is very versatile and you could easily mix and match any of the plates. This is probably the only real Bundle Monster set that I’m super hyped up about.
The Festival stamping plates alone are $14.99 USD. Each plate measures 2 x 2 inches.
The plates each come wrapped up individually and with a blue film to protect them.
The big thing that I was worried about as I do with any plates is would they fit my nails. Below is a measurement of the full nail image on plate BM-S304
There are 3 plates that are full nail images BM-S304, BM-S308 and BM-S310. I have a comparison from the full nail images on plates
BM-S304,BM-S303, and BM-S301.
Here is a close up of the plates
All the plates stamp wonderfully and I had no problem picking up the images. Any of the mistakes with swatches are my own fault.
The polishes included in this set are Gobi you, Empire Club and Astronomical. As luck would have it I was sent Set 1 of the polishes rather than set 2. The polishes in set 1 which are swatched below using the Fab ur nails XL stamper. Each color bought separately is $4.99 USD.
The consistency of the polishes are very thick and opaque, I did have some trouble with how thick Rose Garden is but it looks as if some of the polish came out during transit so that might have to do with it. I did find that after using Eldorado my stamper was very faintly stained from it. It’s not very noticeable since I used the green stamper head but it stained lightly.
When I get the correct colors I ordered I will update this post
There were 5 water transfer decal sheets included in the set as well. The decal sheets alone retail at $3.99 USD
1.) The first sheet has some astrological inspired designs
2.) The second sheet has some geometric strips
3.) The third sheet features some cute doodles
4.) The fourth has various palm trees
5.) The last sheet has what looks like oddly colored geometric trees.
Bonus: I also ordered another XL nail plate from Bundle Monster Its from the Polynesia collection and is plate BM-XL115, Maori Mana. I snagged it for 99 cents USD and It’s being sold at a clearance price because the feather design doesn’t transfer like Its supposed to. The plate is being sold until there are no more.
Below is the comparison between the festival plate which is 2×2 inches and the BM-XL plate
I was really curious about their XL plates since the only Bundle monster plates I own are from the Sun Kissed collection back in 2014 and they are a little small for my nail. I have a review on those here. For 99 cents I really didn’t have too much too lose and it bumped me into free shipping.
And here we have swatches of the actual plate itself
Bundle monster also has a 15%off coupon – cheer15 (good until March 31, 2016)
