EXCITING!!! I AM SO EXCITED! Today, I present nail art with the stamp that I created HOW COOL IS THAT. Ok. Seriously. I am done with caps lock.
Bundle Monster just released their stamping plate collection for 2014, another create your own set. Everyone who had a design which was selected to be included in the final collection was sent a free set, so I now have the new set! Be prepared…quite a few of the next posts are going to involve this new set of plates. Some of the designs are spectacular.
My stamp is on plate 607, the curly dot design. The best part, in my opinion, is that I sent in 7 designs. Of the 7, other people sent in two similar designs (which were chosen over mine…a criss cross pattern and a woodgrain. I don’t know if I think theirs are better, but I am glad to see the designs there at all!). My one that DID get picked was extra special because it is actually based off nail art I did for New Years last year (which can be found here). As in, I opened that image, picked my favorite nail, and in Photoshop re-created all the dots from the design in black-on-white. Thus, the sizing is perfect for nails because it comes from a design off a nail!
Of course, I had to use one of my favorite purple glitters (Valerie by Zoya) and some gold polish (Penny Talk by Essie) with the stamp. I am just so happy with this!
The stamp transferred remarkably well, given the number of tiny dots. Actually, I feel like a lot of the designs in this collection have thinner lines than I am used to seeing. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Honestly, you need to clean between uses with these more than with the designs that have just larger holes, but I think they are stunning.
Ok. Just one more photo. I’m done now, I promise. So many of these new designs are begging to be turned into decals. Dinos! You guys there are DINOSAURS.
