Bundle Monster Festival Stamping Plate Collection--Review

Hi festival go-ers! Today I have a stamping collection that's just for you--the Festival Stamping Plate Collection from Bundle Monster. There's 10 small square plates with tons of images to choose from. 

OPI GelColor Super Cute in Pink stamped using BM-S301 in Mundo de Unas Aqua

OPI Suzi Nails New Orleans stamped using BM-S308 in all 6 Bundle Monster Weekend Warrior polishes

I loved this collection! I'm not a festival go-er myself, but I definitely felt Coachella vibes with these fun images on my nails. I was worried that I would have some difficulty picking up or transferring the intricate lines of the images, but I'm happy to report I didn't have any issues. Get your set here for $14.99 or here individually for $2.49 each.

Bundle Monster Weekend Warrior Creative Art Stamping Polishes--Review

Good morning beauties! Today I have the Weekend Warrior stamping polishes from Bundle Monster to review for you. There are 6 polishes in this set including a coral red (Rose Garden), orange (Teepee Tipping), yellow (Gobi You), neon green (Empire Club), sky blue (Astronomical), and purple (El Dorado). The consistency was very thick and stringy, but pigmentation was great. I stamped over OPI Suzi Nails New Orleans using Bundle Monster BM-S308 with all 6 Weekend Warrior polishes. I was pleased with the transfer and pigmentation, but when I topcoated, the purple bled. I was pretty bummed about that, but I'lll still be giving these another try. You can purchase these here for $19.99 or purchase them individually here for $4.99 each.

Madam Glam Gel Matte Top Coat Review

Happy Friday everyone! Today I'll be reviewing a gel matte top coat from Madam Glam. It comes in a different bottle than their regular SOG's. It's a cylindrical bottle shape and it's 10ml instead of the usual 15ml. Here I used Madam Glam gel Cherry Party and stamped using MoYou London Mandala 02 in Mundo de Unas Black.

I used 1 coat of top coat on my nails that I didn't stamp and 3 coats on my stamped nails (I always topcoat before stamping and do 2 after to protect the design). Don't do what I did. I had THE. HARDEST. TIME. removing this mani! The nails I topcoated once took about twice as long as it usually takes me, but the ones with 3 coats of TC were not budging and I had to scrape and file off.

Aside from my removal nightmare, the formula was pretty thick. It felt like a glue type of consistency and it took a little effort to work with it. The matte effect looked great though! If I were to use this again I would definitely just do 1 coat of this topcoat and that's it (and I'd probably have to go sans nail art). You can purchase this product here for $19.95.

Madam Glam Soak Off Gel Polish--Stylishly Fashionable

Good morning! Guess what I have to share with you today. You got it--another SOG from Madam Glam. This one's called Stylishly Fashionable and it had the usual perfect, creamy formula as all of their other cremes. I stamped over it with MoYou London Holy Shapes 03 in Mundo de Unas Bronze. Thank goodness for clear stampers now otherwise placement would have been a nightmare! You can purchase this gel here for $19.95.
