weekend fun with nail decals- bundle monster and dope digits

I haven’t changed my nail design in 4 days, which is a pretty long time for me.  Partly because I love my current nude/neon leopard nails.  But also because I’ve been getting my daily nail art fix from making diy decals. I had some sugar skull cravings so I tried out my new Bundle Monster 413 plate and made some fun skull stickers!

I peeled the blue plastic film off my bundle monster plate (BM-413) to find that it had a few big (but not deep) scratches on it.  Not sure what’s up with that or how that happened.  I used black konad polish and stamped some of the skull designs onto a plastic baggie.  Some of the lines in the etchings were very fine/skinny so the polish kept sticking to my Moyou squishy stamper instead of transferring off onto the baggie.  I thought maybe because the bag wasn’t sticky enough, so I tried it on different surfaces but I had the same issue.  That woulda bugged me if I messed them up on freshly manicured nails, but since it was on a plastic baggie I didn’t care that much.  Here’s what my decals looked like after I stamped them, painted them in, and covered them with Revlon quick dry topcoat.

diy skull decals

You can see several skulls didn’t stamp well so I didn’t paint those ones in.  I also hand-painted some shamrocks too and I filled them in with a sparkly green Sephora Formula X called Mr. Positivity.  I might use those shamrocks in my next March N.A.I.L. design for the St. Patty’s Day theme.  You can see I also tried to hand-paint a pint glass of beer.  I thought it would be cool to have green beer on my nails.  I dunno… the pint glass wasn’t looking too good, so I didn’t bother painting it in with green.  LOL

I also want to show you the water slide decals that I won from Nail A College Dropout‘s recent giveaway!  When I saw these Beyoncé decals I knew I had to have them!  I always say that in my next life I want to come back as Beyoncé!  She’s so gorgeous and I wish I could dance like her.  And that jelly!!! But anyway…… lucky me- I won the giveaway!  Here’s what I got, including dope eyes and these crazy twerk decals with big booties on ‘em.  IDK I probably shouldn’t wear these to the office, huh?

Hope you’re having a great weekend and that you get to do something fun or creative!  Like maybe some St Patty’s nails!  The weather is a little warmer here in NY but the snow has not melted yet.  It’ll get cold again tomorrow so I will probably stay in and paint my nails!  What else is new ? :) Ciao my bellas!

      I dunno Nicole… I just tried them again last nite (a different plate, not the skulls again) and that one didn’t stamp well either. I ended up using my MoYou plate with no problems. I’m wondering if the BM plates don’t stamp as well as other brands?

        Oh no!!!! I have three or four sets (three?? Anyway…) and they all stamp wonderfully. However I have had to email bundle monster once before because I had a plate that refused to stamp. You should contact them, they mailed me out new plates super quick.
