Hello Loves! It's been a crazy week! I'll go into the details in the next Nail School Chronicle entry on Monday, but I have a quick little stamping mani for you today compliments of Bundle Monster. I'm still struggling to break out of my usual nail art style, so I'll call this a gateway mani. It's not floral (whoo hoo!), but it is swirly which is typical for me. Want to see it? Of course you do.
You want details, right? The base is the last thermal from the Bundle Monster Fruit Cocktails Collection. Yep, I finally made it through them. Considering how it long it has taken me, one might think it is a huge collection. Nope, just three thermal gel polishes. lol This one is called Berry Fizz. Berry Fizz is a pink to purple thermal base with a scattering of multi-sized silver glitter. I remembered to take a swatch photo of the base this time. Go me!
Not only did I remember the swatch photo, but I also remembered the photos of the phases. I'm on a roll!
Berry Fizz is slightly thick due to the glitter, but it applies nicely and I didn't have any trouble getting even glitter distribution and full coverage in just two coats. What do you think of this one? Are you a fan of pink and purple? To be completely honest, it is a little too girly for me on its own, but a little stamping fixed it right up! For this mani, I used image BM-612 from the Bundle Monster Create Your Own 2014 Collection. I don't know about y'all, but I can't resist the Bundle Monster plate collections. I have purchased them all so far! The main nails are stamped with Mundo de Unas Black and the ring finger is Mundo de Unas Mexican Pink. I adore the nails that are stamped in Black. The pink one, meh. I should have stuck with black. lol
Here's another shot of the final mani. What do you think? Love it? Hate it?
By the way, I'm sure most of you know this trick, but you can use school glue to help make stamping cleanup easier. Brush the glue over the skin around your nails, let it dry, stamp, then peel off the glue. It's fabulous and minimizes cleanup...if you do it right. I did NOT do it right this time. I completely forgot to moisturize before putting the glue around my nails and it wouldn't come off. Oops. It took me a good 10 minutes with a scrub brush to get the glue off of my skin. Only I can mess up something as simple as peeling off glue. Talent, I tell you. Talent. lol
If you would like to pick up a bottle of Berry Fizz of your very own, you can find it on Bundle Monster's Website here or on Amazon Here. Oh, and in case you missed the other two gel polishes in the Fruit Cocktail collection, I swatched Raspberry Rush here and Mulberry Surprise here. :)
