This stamping plate is from the first Bundle Monster set, it is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp.

All of the designs stamp well, even the delicate chandler design. Out of the seven designs I think I like the anchor the best, which do you like?

You can see some of the nail designs I have done using this plate here if you like.

It's Enigmatic Rambles' 3rd Birthday!


Sunday Stamping: Shoes Inspired

The challenge today was to do nails which were inspired by your favourite shoes. These have to be my favourite shoes, they were the ones I wore when I got married. I have lots of shoes I have gotten throughout the years but I always end up wearing the same couple of pairs.

Nails: Fast Food Challenge - Greggs

Another challenge, and this time it is from SheWhoDoesNails here. I decided to go for Greggs as there is a Greggs practically on every street here, being the home of Greggs the Bakers. 

I did a Sausage Roll and a Pasty as well as the logo...

Nail Art: Holiday


I started by painting my nails ELF Yellow, then sponged on ELF Party Peach and ELF Black to get the gradient, I did a tutorial on how to do this here if you are interested. Then I went on to stamp the designs using W7 Black and the following stamping plates; Bundle Monster BM315 and BM310, B22 and M71.

Swatch: Kleancolor - Metallic Pink (158)

Originally bought this polish for stamping with, which is does work perfectly for.

Colour: Bright pink
Finish: Metallic
Opacity: One coater
How Much? 15ml

Something I did notice about this polish is it changes colour when you apply a clear top coat, similar to the Barry M Chameleon polishes and the China Glaze Tranzitions.
