Hey guys! So a couple weeks ago I received my prize from the 2012 Bundle Monster Nail Art Contest which was their new 2012 nail stamping plate set, yey! These plates feature brand new designs with a nice mix between full nail, individual & nail tip designs! There are 25 plates in the collection with about 6 designs per plate. At the current time of me writing this, they are being sold on Amazon for $21.99. I am pleased with the quality of the plates which are the same as their 2011 plate set, except this collection came in a little Bundle Monster package. The images are etched properly and so far I have had no troubles with any of the plates I have used. They have a lot of beautiful designs aswell! I was really happy to see that there's an "awareness" ribbon pattern in the set, because I really like doing designs that create awareness for different causes such as Breast Cancer Awareness, Ovarian Cancer Awareness, etc., so that was a nice surprise! I had actually been looking for a plate that carried an awareness ribbon for quite some time and now I finally have one! ...Now the design below is the first design I did using this set. At first I was thinking of doing something intricate & I was trying to figure out which plates to try first, but the gradient pattern really stuck out to me. Ombre nails have been sooo popular lately & I was just so curious to see how their gradient pattern would look because I've never seen that on a nail stamping plate before. Plus, my nails were already painted a light purple shade so I figured it's a good time to break out my rarely used Konad Violet Pearl polish &
sponge STAMP on some gradient! I think I likey, lol! I added a video tutorial along with this, so you can see me using these plates in action!!! What do you guys think?
