Guess what just arrived in my mailbox when I got home from work last night? The brand new Bundle Monster Sun Kissed Collection, which I shared the press release about on here recently.
So I picked up my camera and got snappin’ because I’m sure that a lot of fellow nailphiles would love to see the cool designs on the 10 stainless-steel nail-stamping plates!
In this post, you’ll see each Bundle Monster plate in detail, as well as some commentary on each plate.
Stay tuned for a future post when I share my swatches of the manicures I come up with!
(Side Note: You may have noticed that this week, there have been fewer blog posts than usual. Things are always hectic on my end, but this week was particularly crazzzyyy town. I hope to get back into my usual 5-per-week posting schedule. I’ll do my best!) 🙂
Bundle Monster Sun Kissed Collection Pictures
The Bundle Monster nail-stamping plates come shipped in a bubble envelope. Then, there’s a resealable zip-lock bag you can store them in, if you don’t already have a binder like the one I showed you in this post.
Each plate has a protective blue film covering it.
Remember to peel off the film, or the images won’t transfer properly.
The backing of each plate is paper, so the edges aren’t sharp.
Look how cute the little fish look! You could totally pair them with any of the coral reefs or sea plants on this disc, and it would create a cohesive theme.
I’m a big fan of full-nail designs because they’re really easy to incorporate into any nail look, and also because I don’t have to be super precise with the positioning.
The below full-nail designs are so versatile that they can be used for much more than just seaside nail art.
Hehe, I like the fishbones! They would be really fun to pair with some cats! 😉
My favourite from this plate would be the jellyfish, although I love the little octopus!
Tinnnnnyyyy bubbles! And those seashells would be really fun if you’re doing a Little Mermaid theme.
The seahorse stood out the most to me! Haha, and I don’t know why, but the image in the middle at the bottom reminds me of a sea captain’s beard! Am I the only one who sees it? 😉
Ice cream! Cocktails! Those would be perfect for a summer manicure, wouldn’t they?
ARRR! This landlubber spies a pirate on deck!
My favourite from this plate is the one in the middle at the top. The diagonal design with the anchors is funky and different than a lot of sea- or sailor-themed nail designs I’ve seen.
Aha! I knew there must be some mermaids in this collection, and there are! 🙂

If you’re new to nail stamping, be sure to check out my step-by-step Nail Stamping Tutorial that I made when I first tried my hand at it. So, that tutorial will show you the viewpoint of a complete newbie. Since writing that post, I’ve done plenty of nail stamping and improved. (I hope that encourages you to keep at it. With more practice, it gets easier!)
