Here’s something fun for today! I recently ordered the new Bundle Monster plates. I wasn’t going to, but then I saw plate BM-311 and fell in love! All those text stamps? I need those in my life. For those of you who aren’t aware (which is probably almost all of you), when I’m not doing my nails, I’m working as a freelance writer/editor and a communications coordinator. Swanky!
This was a bit experimental for me. It’s supposed to look like aged paper (like the kind you’d dye with tea). My mom saw it, but my husband thinks it looks like wood. Pft, what does he know!
I started out with two coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Whirlwind White as the base. Then I added Lazensa Big Ben, Baby! with a dry fan brush to give it that texture and make sure the colour didn’t go on too dark. I followed that up with Bundle Monster plate BM-311 and some Konad Special Polish in Black for the stamping. I tried to miss the “love” script in the stamp, but you can still see some of it. I even sawed my nails down for this, haha!
What do you think? I might try this again with a more grey polish (China Glaze Recycle!) and see how it looks.
