Stamping Plate: Bundle Monster 316 (BM316)


This stamping plate is from the third Bundle Monster set, from 2012. It is backed with branded lining to stop it from being sharp. This is useful, without it it is easy to slice open your fingers and palms which I have been known to do accidentally in the past with other stamping plates.


The plate has two full images, two half nail images and two single images. I found they all stamped easily other than the bottom left one. Bare in mind I still haven't mastered stamping images with a lot of blank space. I have been trying scraping at a 45 degree angle which has helped. I like the moon image.

Below are some nails I have done using this plate, you can see more by clicking here.

Nails: Top 5 Spring Polishes 2015

 MUA - Frozen Yoghurt // Leighton Denny - Rosey Posey // Barry M - Blue Moon // Leighton Denny - Just Perfect // Nails Inc - Optic Wave

The Spring equinox happened on Friday (along with the eclipse) and so to mark the official end of Winter I thought it was time to show my top 5 polish picks. You can see my picks from 2013 here and 2014 here. Of course you don't need these specific brands and colours but something along these lines are very Spring appropriate, if that is what you are looking for.
