Bundle Monster Secret Garden nail plates *pic heavy*

Hi guys! As you may have seen on my Facebook or Instagram, I got some insane nailmail yesterday: a whopping 31 stamping plates... OMG! They're all awesome and I couldn't resist trying them out straight away, so here's the first set. It's the new Secret Garden collection from Bundle Monster, this set contains 25 plates with a -you guessed it- garden theme! And as usual with Bundle Monster, I think they nailed the theme, these plates really have that romantic, swirly, floral feel which I absolutely LOVE! Let's have a look at all the plates first, before I show a little bit more of this mani :)

The plates come with the usual protective blue foil at the front, and the protective cover at the back. The images themselves look crispy sharp and have the high quality that we're used to from Bundle Monster. If you're not sure how to deal with these fully covered plates, I posted a How To: about that yesterday :) And as you can see, these fully covered plates are brilliant for people with longer nails as well, the plates have the standard platesize and it's up to you to decide what part of the image comes on your nails!


I'm thinking of glittery accents in the middle of the top right flowers, and those keys are perfect for a romantic themed mani as well.


Look at those floral, swirly images! And Bambi!


I can see myself wearing all of these images, but top left jumps out the most for me right now. But those leaves are a close second!


This is one of the plates with less clear beginnings and endings of images, instead it's really 1 big design. The swirls near the bottom are my favorite part!


Cover your nails fully in text, or pick out 1 word to match the rest of your mani :)


This one has several designs that got my attention, but then again, most of these plates do, haha!


I'm not sure if I'd ever use the couch, but I don't mind it either. It fits perfect with the plate, don't you think? And I can imagine a mani of the top part with the tree and the leaves, split into several sections, one on each nail.


Yes, there's more adorable flowers...


... and then some more! ♥


Again a bunch of images that I can totally see on my nails!


Ohh yes, top left ♥


After doing a few black-on-holo stampings, I'm getting the feel for it, and these thicker lined imaged would be great for that!


Did I already mention flowers? :D Middle right is cute! And again perfect for adding little details in the middle of the flowers.


Can you imagine how hard it was to pick an image for my mani? :)


The bottom image is another one that'll be perfect for some bold black/holo stamping, don't you think?


Swirly top image ♥ But I'm liking the cherry blossom too!


 I feel like I'm on repeat, but yes... Floral! Swirly! Yum!


*Swoon* This swirly design, lalalove! This is the plate that I used for yesterday's How To: mani, but I'm eager to use the swirly design on itself, on all nails :)


MORE SWIRLY! :D


I think this tropical plate is perfect for brighter stamping, like green on green.

 
This is the plate I used for today's mani, the image on the left. Will definitely use it again!


I count 3 squirrels, but I have no idea what that thing on the left is. Is it a creature or just a random image? Oh well, whatever it is, I can see both the top and bottom image in a funky mani :)


Meow! It's actually not the kittycats that jump out for me, but the flowers :) Although that fencing at the bottom could be great as well, sideways over the nail?


Another piece of furniture that works well with the theme. It wouldn't be an obvious image choice for my nails, yet I do see how the top of the chair, tilted, would work!


And of course a Secret Garden needs a pond with fishies!


Right, time to show more of my mani!

I went with a gradient stamping in green, to stick with the garden theme. You can see how I did the gradient in this post. I mattified the mani because I liked the look of the matte base polish with the stamping, I need to get a backup of this very pale grey! I think I'll use this one a lot, it's perfect for nailart :)
