OPI Never Have Too Mani Friends & MoYou London Holy Shapes 07

Hey friends! Here's a mani I did back in January. I used OPI Never Have Too Mani friends and stamped using MoYou London Holy Shapes 07 in all 6 China Glaze New Bohemian Luster Chrome polishes (Deviantly Daring, No Plain Jane, Rare & Radiant, Swanky Silk, Unpredictable, and Want My Bawdy). I will love these polishes over black 5-ever!

Bundle Monster Lotus Mat Review

Happy Saturday loves! Today I have the Bundle Monster Lotus Mat to review. It's a large, silicone mat you can use for many things like making decals, testing stamping combinations, swatching, mixing colors, and protecting the surface of your workspace. 

Here are some decals I made.

OPI I Manicure for Beads and stamping decals made with Mundo de Unas Black, MoYou London Explorer 27 plate, and filled with OPI Spare Me a French Quarter, OPI Rich Girls & Po-Boys, and OPI I'm Sooo Swamped

OPI Crawfishin' for a Compliment and stamping decals made with Mundo de Unas White, MoYou London Explorer 03 plate, and filled with OPI Got Myself into a Jam-balaya, OPI She's a Bad Muffuletta, and OPI Suzi Nails New Orleans

The sizes of the nails on the mat are kind of massive.

Overall, I love the mat. I have it on my nail desk now. It works great for decals and protecting my work space surface and is easily cleaned with acetone and cotton. The only thing I would change is make the sizes of the nails on the mat smaller since it doesn't give you a realistic idea of what the decal will actually look like on your nail. Other than that it's great! You can purchase the mat here for $13.99.

Valentine's Day Gradient & Hearts

Hello all! Valentine's Day is coming and I've been enjoying seeing everyone's themed manis lately. Today I have my first one for the month that I actually did in December. I started my gradient for a New Year's Eve mani and decided it was suited better for this occasion. I did the gradient with China Glaze Spring in My Step, China Glaze Petal to the Metal, China Glaze Strike a Rose, and Barry M Passion Fruit. I stamped with MoYou London Festive 20 in Mundo de Unas Black. My sister got me the Barry M polish on her trip to Scotland recently so I'm glad I found it a mani-home and finally have a Barry M polish in my collection.

Bundle Monster Creative Art Polish--Review

Well hello Saturday! Today I'll be reviewing Bundle Monster Creative Art Polishes that are made for stamping. I received set 4--six metal foil finish polishes.

I stamped BM Villian over gel and top coated with regular polish. Once I added topcoat, Villian bled. I would imagine if I stamped over regular polish, it would have bled even more. This is the same thing that happens when stamping with Kleancolor polish.

I stamped using BM Chaos. My Christmas tree image came out with fuzzy edges.

Here's my stamper after using Villian and Chaos--stained.

It was difficult to pick up a whole image. This looks like when a stamper needs to be primed and it happened with most of my attempts. 

Still not a perfect image, but this was one of my better attempts at picking up the polish.

Here is the same image and stamper with a Mundo de Unas polish after one attempt.

My final thoughts: I really wanted to like these polishes since the set has great colors and I love having a variety of stamping polish, but I will probably not be using these again. The formula is thin for a stamping polish, bled, stained my stamper badly, and was difficult to pick up. You can purchase this set here for $21.99.
