Bundle Monster Stamping Image Plates - Bundle #2 - 25 Plates - pt.1

So again a BIG THANK YOU to every one who voted for my nail art design in the bundle monster contest!  Yes, I was one of the 25 winners and late last week, I received my new image plates!

I have only tried one of the plates so far, and I didn't do anything elaborate.  If i get off my butt before publishing this post, I'll take a photo of my current BM manicure.

They are FAR superior to their old plates because of some changes they made.

Change 1:  Plastic backing on the plate.  no need to make your own.  The edge of the plate is much smoother so there is less chance that you'll cut yourself with these plates.  Of course, it still is a thin metal plate, so I still use a bit of caution/common sense.

Change 2: The thin protective film on the plate is now translucent blue.  So for those of you who didn't realize there was a protective layer on there when it was clear... well, now it's pretty obvious, I think.

Change 3:  THIS IS THE BIGGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT CHANGE in my opinion anyways.  And those of you with larger or wider nail beds will surely agree.  They have made the size of their full nail designs larger!  They are now the same size as Konad's full nail image plates.  :D  YES!  (though, truth be told, it'd be nice if they were a bit longer still.  I can only get full nail coverage, particularily on my thumb, when my nails are VerY short.)


Because of these three changes I love this bundle even more than the first!
I also recommend this set because I'm personally a fan of the full nail images rather than the smaller ones and this set has at least 2-4 full nail images on 20 of the 25 plates!  The other 5 plates have 6 french tip designs each (which I've never owned before, but am very eager to try out :)


Ok.  so here is some info on them.
They can be purchased at:

The original Bundle Monster plates are 21 plates for $17.99 USD.
This set of Bundle Monster plates are 25 plates for $21.99 USD.
I believe there is no shipping charges on these (but it's been a while so don't quote me on that.)
They are similar to Konad stamping plates.
To see a comparative review, check out my Bundle Monster Review.

you can use "Special" Konad polishes or (I)some(/i) regular polishes.
Please check out my Konad Answers video for more info.

Now for the pictures of the new plates!!!!!
This post will only have half of them.  The rest will follow in a couple minutes ;)

Which plate is your favorite?
Do you own bundle monster plates?  What's your opinion of these vs the old ones vs Konad?

part 2 of the image plates coming up asap!

  1. I got my BM plates today and BM-215 really caught my eye. I love anything animal print and to see snake skin? OMG! I can't wait to try it.

  2. No, I don't have bundle monster plates. In Germany Konad Plates are easier to buy.

  3. I can't wait for my new plates to finally get to Canada! :( I've been waiting for a week and a half now - and there is one more week to go before they will arrive...so sad... *sad face*
    I can't wait to try out plate 209! XD


  4. hi, I am new to both, the first I used was the Konad, but today I tried the Monster Bundle, not sure if anyone who had this problem. Tonight I tried BM-214, The clover came out splotchy, and the deer would not come out at all. Very disappointing, especially sense the Konad seemed easy to master.

  5. @BeckyDJD I tried the deer, the rainbow, the swan, and the piano nail design and none would come out at all! I'm very confused and don't know how to fix this problem:/

  6. I have bm 201 the left full nail design above the rainbow on my nails right now in black over a really sparkly light blue I love this one!
