Bundle Monster Happily Never After Stamping Plate Review

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Bundle Monster's newest collection of plates isn't specifically Halloween-themed but it could be.  The Happily Never After collection is a set of 5 plates all inspired by fairy tales.  And they do a very good job reminding us that the original stories behind them are actually quite frightening!  While you could definitely do a some scary designs with each of the plates, I realize that not everyone wants plates that you can only use at Halloween so I tried to come up with designs that could be worn year round.  In other words, don't let the time of the release of these plates make you feel that they're only for Halloween.  They can easily be used whenever you want!

Bundle Monster Rub On Halloween Decals

Press  Sample

Hey there!  Today I have a product that I've never tried before from Bundle Monster.  Did you know that rub on decals are a thing because I sure didn't!  I remember using rub transfers when I was a child but never fathomed that I'd be using them on nails one day.  It turns out that Bundle Monster has a few sets of these rub on decals.  I got to try the Halloween rub on decals.  While I'll probably always love stamping the most, these were really fun to play with.  It was like reliving childhood!

26 Great Nail Art Ideas - Friday The 13th

Hey there!  A couple of weeks ago I worried that there would be no more 26 Great Nail Art Ideas...but we have been resurrected thanks to Cathy and Cheyenne!  Truly, they're such nice women and I'm very grateful that they've taken over managing the group.  And they've come up with a great first theme.  To commemorate the date, we're doing Friday the 13th nails.  I was tempted to do birthday nails since my mom was born on a Friday the 13th but I thought that might be a bit too obscure.  So I went with some bad luck black cat nails instead.



The Digit-al Dozen does Throwback - Throwback Prompt

Press  Sample

Hey there!  For the fifth and final Throwback of the Digit-al Dozen theme this week, I've thrown back to one of our old themes.  I went back through all the themes we've had since I joined in January 2015 and decided I wanted to tackle Geometric again.  It's a prompt I often have issues with.  But this time I had some Stained Glass Stencils from Whats Up Nails which made it much more bearable!

The Digit-al Dozen does Throwback - Throwback Music Stamping

Hey there!  It's the Throwback Thursday of this month's Digit-al Dozen theme!  Since Throwback Thursday always makes me think of great older music, I'm posting an 80's-inspired music mani today.  This the Super Mario Bros nails I posted a couple days ago, this is pretty much my childhood on my nails!

The Digit-al Dozen does Throwback - Throwback Polish

Hey there!  For today's Digit-al Dozen Throwback mani I went with a polish type that we don't see much of anymore - crackle polish!  Remember when this was all the rage?  I have seen some recent-ish nail art done with crackle polish and it looks great but I don't think this will ever get as popular as it once was.  But it works amazingly in this Halloween look I did, inspired by this YouTube video.

The Digit-al Dozen does Throwback - Throwback Videogame

Hey there!  For today's Digit-al Dozen "throwback" mani I decided to go with something that I have spent many, many hours of my life on - Super Mario Bros.  I swear I wasted my half my childhood on this game, between versions 1-3.  And then more hours on in with versions for the Wii.  My niece still likes to play the newer one when she visits.  I even got bored enough this weekend that I tried the original one again - I died very quickly!
