The wait is over! Bundle Monster has finally released their 2013 Create Your Own Stamping Plate Collection. Earlier this year, they had fans submit their designs to be chosen for this collection. The process of selecting winners and producing the plates has taken some time, but I'm glad I finally have them to review for you today. The set is comprised of 26 plates and all of the images are fan created. There is a huge variety of images in this collection including patterns, tribal print, nautical, nerdy, gamer, sugar skulls, sports, music, animals, and romantic images. The list goes on, but when I say variety, I mean it! There are a lot of full nail images and single images as well. Here are a few manis I have already did using the new plates.
Here's the packaging for the plates. It has a zip lock so you can keep the plates in there if you wanted to. You can also see the plates have the same backing as their other sets to prevent you from getting cut on sharp edges.
All of the plates come with blue film to protect the plates from getting scratched in transit. You must remove it before use.
OPI A Piers to be Tan stamped using BM 410 in Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Orange Impulse
It was so much fun creating this crime scene mani. I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and OPI My Boyfriend Scales walls and stamped using BM 421, 414, 416, and 409 in Konad Yellow, MASH Black, China Glaze With Love, and Konad White.
The small circles on the DNA image (pinky) didn't want to pick up on my Konad stamper, but I switched to my XL squishy stamper and it picked up with ease. I will also say I am impressed at how clear the caution tape details came out so crisp.
OPI My Boyfriend Scales walls stamped using BM 423 in Konad Black. The red is OPI First Date at the Golden Gate and the glitter is China Glaze Glistening Snow. The zig zag image is the image I was looking forward to the most because achieving this image with tape/zig zag scissors or polish decal/zig zag scissors is not always user or time friendly.

The new set is the exact same size as BM 3 and BM Holiday sets.
Click for enlargement. I don't usually include my scans, but I really want to show all of the creative images in this set.
I really love this set. The images are so fun and creative and I am already planning out so many manicures. There is a ton of variety and the quality is just as good as BM's other sets. The best part--the whole set of 26 plates is only $16.50. It is their largest and cheapest set. You can purchase Bundle Monster's 2013 Create Your Own Stamping Plate Collection here.
