Today I have to show you a manicure I did a few weeks ago, with the image from the new Bundle Monster stamping plates that I was most excited about - the flip flops! I am a flip flop girl and come summer I live in them, and I LOVE this image! I heard a few people had problems with this plate as there is so much detail in the image and the lines are quite fine, but it worked really well for me.
I started with a base coat of white, then sponged a neon gradient using Color Club Poptastic, China Glaze Japanese Koi and Color Club Almost Famous using this method. It was a bitch to clean up, but it worked. Then I added topcoat and stamped with Konad Special Black polish. Sorry for the junkie cuticles in the pics, it really was hell to clean up!
Gradient before I stamped it
I didn't top coat it after the stamping, because I had run out of topcoat that doesn't smudge. This picture was taken 2 days later as I was about to take it off - the stamping has sort of worn away!
I really loved this mani. Usually when I wear something bright and eye catching I can only bear it for a day, then I get too self conscious. But I love this design :) I might have to wear it again before summer is over...
What's your favourite from the new Bundle Monster set? The first one I went for was actually the paisley - I'll show you that tomorrow :)
