Bundle Monster Create Your Own Collection Review & Pictures

Bundle Monster Create Your Own Collection ReviewCalling all nail-art enthusiasts! You’re going to love the Bundle Monster Create Your Own Collection of nail-stamping image plates!

A while back, Bundle Monster held a contest, asking nailphiles to submit their design ideas for new nail plates.

For the new collection, they chose all fan-created images, which I think is pretty cool. (Companies that value the opinions of their customers and fans get a big thumbs up from me, and Bundle Monster always seems to take feedback well!)

In today’s post, I’ll show you all 26 plates in the Bundle Monster Create Your Own Collection, and I’ll share with you my thoughts on each.

Then, in future posts, I’ll show you some nail art I come up with using the images from these plates – stay tuned!

The collection of plates come in a stack neatly stored in a small package.

Each plate comes with a blue film on top that must be removed before use.

If you pick a little at the edge, you can easily peel off this blue film.

There’s a paper backing so that the plates aren’t sharp.

Now to show off each plate individually! 🙂 Are you ready? I am!

Below each image plate, I’ll add some commentary, so we can walk through the designs together.

Bundle Monster BM-401 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

My favourite image from BM-401 is the octopus (or maybe the tentacles). They’re very unique, and you may remember a long time ago, I did freehand octopus nail art! 😉

Bundle Monster BM-402 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Hands down, the whimsical monocle and mustache are just screaming out to me, saying, “Pick me! Pick meeee!”

Bundle Monster BM-403 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I like the geometric designs because you could do so many different combinations, and each manicure would look completely different. Plus for those who aren’t comfortable drawing straight lines, stamping them on is much more manageable.

Bundle Monster BM-404 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The thought bubble is a cute idea, and you could write whatever word you want inside or even stamp a little image inside. I’m thinking about putting a little sheep inside, so it looks like you’re ‘counting sheep’.

Bundle Monster BM-405 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I remember folding origami cranes! Haha, I wasn’t very good at it when I was a kid and a beginner. (There was a lot of pressure to do a good job, and I remember my hands sweating and making the folds not as crisp!)

Also, a few years ago, my friend taught me how to fold a rose. She made it look so easy, but I had difficulty because it was the most intricate design I ever tried to do. So, again, I got nervous and my hands began to sweat. By the end of it, my rose looked like it had wilted. 😉

So, at least now with this Bundle Monster image, I can create a crane without perspiring! Haha!

Bundle Monster BM-406 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The little hearts incorporated into the wavy wire full-nail design is my favourite on this plate because it’s simple yet very interesting. I think it’s refreshing because it’s not your standard cluster of hearts.

Bundle Monster BM-407 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

*Squeals* The birdcage is super cute! And I can see myself using the anchors for some nautical manicures! I also really like the artistic trees (top centre) because they have an abstract appearance.

Bundle Monster BM-408 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The confetti looks like a lot of fun, and it’s the perfect option for those who want the look of glitter, but who don’t want to deal with the inevitable struggle during removal. Very clever!

I also think the numbers are cool because they’re all different sizes and angled in an interesting way. It would be cute to pair this with the “I <3 Geeks” image from the BM-401 plate.

Bundle Monster BM-409 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Hehe, look at the Bundle Monster logo! I’ve always thought the monster in the box is quirky, so it’s nice to see it on a nail plate finally.

I love the lightbulbs with heart tungsten. This is another great way to sport hearts without being traditional.

Bundle Monster BM-410 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Aww, the firefly is adorable! You could use a dotting tool to add a ‘trail’. I’ve gotta do that sometime soon for easy and quick nail art!

Bundle Monster BM-411 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

WOW – my favourite design in the entire Bundle Monster Create Your Own Collection has to be the musical notes.

I used to play the piano, clarinet, flute, and saxophone. So when I see the treble clef, sharps, flats, base clef, and musical notes, it brings back great memories!

Bundle Monster BM-412 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I had a t-shirt that I bought during a trip to Prince Edward Island, which had the exact same dot pattern as the design on the right.

Bundle Monster BM-413 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The full skeleton here is so funny because, to me, it looks like (s)he’s doing a funky dance. “Put your hands in the air, and wave ’em all around like you just don’t care!” 😉

I have small nails, though, and it looks like I may only be able to use the skeleton on my thumb. All my other fingers will cut poor Mr. Skelly Ton in half.

Bundle Monster BM-414 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The skyline is too cool! I must try it with a ‘sunset’ gradient in the background or a starry night sky.

I also like the tracks because you could make your nails look like little baseballs!

Bundle Monster BM-415 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I love this plate because it’s so quirky! The word-search is a must-try for me!

Bundle Monster BM-416 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Cool – now you can create a splatter manicure without having to make a mess by blowing polish onto your nails with a straw!

Bundle Monster BM-417 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Patience, grasshopper! Although I’m not big on insects, I think they look cool in nail art!

Bundle Monster BM-418 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I like the recycling symbol and can see myself sporting it for Earth Day.

Bundle Monster BM-419 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

The image on the top left looks like a crown, and I like how it’s very different!

Bundle Monster BM-420 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I got so excited when I saw the tuxedo and corset designs, but when I put my nails up to the image, it looks like those might be too wide for my narrow, small nails. It’s possible for me to maybe fit them on my thumb nails, but I don’t think enough of the image will show on my other fingers, and especially not my pinkie! (I’ll still have to try it to be sure.)

Bundle Monster BM-421 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Haha, the mean messages in the hearts are cruel! “U Stink”, “Don’t Call Me”, “Get a Life”, “Loser”, etc.!

Bundle Monster BM-422 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I like the brick wall. The first thing that came to mind was to paint Humpty Dumpty sitting on top of the wall.

Bundle Monster BM-423 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Yay for popcorn! Mmm, now I’m craving it.

Whenever I see movies in the theatre, I always get popcorn with butter. And even if the film is a flop, sometimes having a delicious snack can save it. 😉 Do you agree?

Bundle Monster BM-424 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I’m loving the cute pandas and the bamboos. Even those paw prints are adorable. I’d use all of these images together.

Bundle Monster BM-425 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

I’m not too crazy about having words on my nails, but who knows? I may use the “I <3 You” design.

Bundle Monster BM-426 Create Your Own Image Collection Review

Again, I don’t usually like words (or letters) on my nails, so this plate isn’t my favourite. However, the swirl in the centre looks neat and hypnotizing! 😉

Bundle Monster Create Your Own Review


Each of image plate is made of metal, and there are designs etched into them. In order to pick up the image, you apply nail polish over it, scrape off the excess, and then pick up the design with your stamper.

When I was a newbie at nail stamping, I put together a quick and dirty nail stamping tutorial that you may want to check out if you’re just starting out.

When I create manicures with the various designs, I’ll better test out the transfer quality. When the etching has deep enough grooves for the polish, you can get the image to show up better on your nail.

I appreciate how the nail stamping plates have paper backings because this ensures the discs aren’t sharp. Also, I like how it makes the plates feel more substantial and not flimsy.


There are 26 image plates, which is the largest collection that Bundle Monster has ever released – very exciting!

Some of the plates contain more than 6 images, and there is a total of over 150 designs to choose from! You can definitely find what you need to create a one-of-a-kind manicure. No problem! Well, the only problem you may have is picking only a few to use at a time! 😉


The plates come in a plastic package, which is disposable. You’ll need to store your plates in either a binder like the one I showed in this post, a Zip-lock bag, or a box for safety.

    Wooowww some of these are sooo cool! I love how original these designs are! The one with the candy hearts gone bad really made me laugh haha :). Great pictures as well, no reflection or anything!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Eva!

      Haha, yeah, I wasn’t expecting those messages on the hearts, so when I read them, I laughed, too!

      Aww, thanks! It actually was really tricky photographing the plates and not getting myself or furniture (etc.) in the reflection, so I’m really happy that you commented on it! 😀

    Too Cool! So many cool designs. I’ve got to buy some of these Bundle Monster plates. I think I’ll start with this set.

      Hey Jess!

      You’ll love it! Plus isn’t it great how the entire collection is so affordable? I’m all about nail and beauty products that are accessible!

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Nail Polish Society!

      Sorry about that! Okay, I measured the largest full-nail design right now and it was 1.7 cm by 1.3 cm. I hope that helps!

  3. Elisa T

    These are great. Love the nerdy stamps! BTW, in case anyone is wondering, the translation for the binary code stamp:
    01001100 = L
    01001111 = O
    01010110 = V
    01000101 = E
    01011001 = Y

    1. Melissa A.

      That design was mine. ^_^ It was actually LOVEYOU originally, but I guess the bottom two lines wouldn’t fit on the plate. I’m glad someone noticed that it spelled something!

      1. Mary S. Post author

        Hey Melissa!

        Wow, congratulations on having one of your designs make it into the Bundle Monster plate set! 🙂 And how clever of you that you wanted to work in the LOVEYOU hidden message. How cool!

    2. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Elisa!

      That’s sooooo cool how they spell that out. Thanks for sharing! I never would’ve known. How cool that there’s a secret binary message. I’m liking it even more now!

    I bought the skeleton plate & the grooves seem to be to shallow for it to work. When I swipe the excess nail polish off there’s no polish left in the grooves. I’ve used other nail plate brands without having that problem. Has anybody been able to use the bm skeleton nail plate & if so can you help me figure out what I’m doing wrong?

    1. Mary S. Post author

      Hey Diana!

      Hmm, it’s possible that you’re scraping the plate too hard. Try doing it lighter to see if it makes a difference.

      If it’s really bad, maybe contact the place you bought it from (Bundle Monster or elsewhere) and ask nicely for a replacement. It could’ve been a faulty plate because mine worked perfectly, and I was able to pick up the design without trying hard.

  5. Jill

    Thanks for the close up look and your thoughts about all the plates. I’ve been thinking about getting this set since it came out.
