I can still remember the first time I tried stamping and it was not a good experience. Since then I would like to think I have improved, but I’m no expert 🙂
So today I have a review of some stamping plates from Bundle Monster. I have quite a few of their plates already and really like their designs, but was interested to see how their XL plates compare to other brands.
I was kindly sent the Land of Aloha set from the Polynesia Collection, which has 5 stamping plates included. Firstly can I say these are amazing value and you only pay $19.99 for the 5 plates. Now if you compare that to some other brands such as MoYou it is a great price.
Ok so lets get to business. Below you can see the 5 plates in the collection.
I really like this set of plates and I think they will create some amazing manis. They all seem to be etched well so there should be no issues with picking up the design. I used Plate BM-XL 108 to create the mani you can see further down. As well as these plates I was also sent their double ended stamper & scraper set, which can be seen below, and is great value for only $4.99.
So I still have to get used to these stampers as they are a little different from the one I am used to using. It did take a few tries to get a clean print from the plate, that was mainly due to me pushing down too hard on the plate so there was not enough polish left to pick up. Once I got the hang of the pressure I had to apply it worked well. I do still think I will continue to use my old credit card as a scraper as it works so well 🙂
So what do you think? I actually really like the black over the neon pink. I will post a tutorial on my YouTube Channel tomorrow & I will be swatching and reviewing some Nicka K Polishes soon too so keep a look out.
Bundle Monster have a massive range of plates and stamping accessories and are definitely worth checking out.
