Around the World with Bundle Monster - Japan (Part 2)


Hi,

If you saw my earlier Around the World with Bundle Monster post using the Japanese themed plate (you can find it here if you missed it) you might remember me saying I would probably dedicate another post to the plate - well, today's the day! There are just so many gorgeous patterns on that plate, I can't help it! 

I used: Renaissance Cosmetics - The Danforth (two coats) / Essence - Prince Charming (from the Cinderella collection) / Bundle Monster BM-XL155* stamping plate

Snapshot - Floral


Hi,

I've got another snapshot post for you today. This is a look I did quite a while ago but I haven't shared it here yet! I tend to share sneak peeks on Instagram from time to time so it has already appeared there :)

In other news, I'm in the process of changing my photo set-up from artificial light and a light box to natural daylight. It might take me some time to get things right so I thought I would let you know. I know a lot of you are bloggers as well, so I'd like to ask - how do you take your photos? Artificial light or daylight?

I used: CANVAS Lacquer - Less Dressed* (two coats) / Bundle Monster - BM-617* stamping plate / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in Black

Around the World with Bundle Monster - Egypt


Hi,

I've got another Around the World with Bundle Monster post to share with you today! The Egyptian themed plate seemed very popular, so I chose one of its full-nail patterns to try out next.

Around the World with Bundle Monster - Japan


Hi,

I'm back today with the second installment of my Bundle Monster Around the World mini series! In case you missed the first post (highlighting the Shanghai Summer plate) you can find it here, scans of the entire collection can be found here. I wanted to use the Kyoto in Spring plate next, with its Japanese imagery. I had a hard time picking just one pattern from this plate so I might have to do a second post dedicated to this plate ;) 

I used: Essence - Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo (one coat as a glitter base, part of the Cinderella collection) / Shimmer Polish - Alice* (one coat) / Polish Alcoholic - Andromeda Galaxy* (one coat) / Bundle Monster BM-XL155 Kyoto in Spring Stamping Plate* / Chloe & Bella - Crystal Clear* top coat

Around the World with Bundle Monster - China


Hi,

I figured I'd make a mini series of posts around the new Bundle Monster Around the World stamping plates (more info on those here) and I'm kicking off today with the first look. I think I stared at the 5 plates for a solid 15 minutes before turning to Instagram for help which plate to use first :') I went with the plate with Chinese imagery called Shanghai Summer and picked the most challenging image on the plate - the large Chinese dragon.

I used: Chloe & Bella - Black Out* (two coats) / Essence - Magic Red Carpet / Bundle Monster - BM-XL151 Shanghai Summer stamping plate* / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in Black / Chloe & Bella - Crystal Clear* top coat / Essence - Matt About You matte top coat

Snapshot - Spooky


Hi,

I wanted to share a quick snapshot of the nails I'm wearing today! I'm off to see Marilyn Manson tonight (for the third time!) so I wanted something fitting. I went with a painfully bright green with purple glitter from Super Black Lacquers and black swirly stamping, sort of similar to an old Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids album cover. I'll probably share a photo or two of the show on my Instagram tonight so if you're into that you can find me here. There's also a more colour accurate photo of Freaky on there, my camera hates how neon this is, haha. 

I used: Super Black Lacquers - Freaky (two coats over a white base) / Born Pretty Store BP-L003 stamping plate* / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in Black / Chloe & Bella - Crystal Clear top coat*

Linework


Hi,

I've got another stamped manicure to share with you today, this time inspired by this beautiful look by Nails 'n' Bobs. I used two of my new Born Pretty Store stamping plates and my go-to nude polish by Essence. This polish by Essence, Crunchy Cake, actually reminds me of my ultimate lemming (and the shade that started my grey polish addiction, lol) - Waking Up in Vegas by Deborah Lippmann!

I used: Essence - Crunchy Cake (two coats) / Born Pretty Store BP-L014* stamping plate / Born Pretty Store BP-55* stamping plate / Essence - Stamp Me! polish in Black
