The first plate of the set is clearly a Halloween themed plate, and it brings us all kinds of scary images, but I also see a little owl, a wood print and some leaves, in case things are getting a bit too scary for you :) Halloween isn't that common yet in the Netherlands, but that increases every year, so who knows, I might just join in for the scary nails next year!
Scary cute is a good way to describe this plate, and it's perfect for a lighthearted approach, or for kids' nails perhaps?
If you want to get creative with scary images, this set'll be perfect, it offers anything I can think of! But it's not just a set that you can only bring out once every year. Here's another plate that'll make you think of Halloween straight away, but also gives other options; the fence on the right, the roof of the house, a tree and leaves, random symbols around the witch on her broom.
Well, if you're looking for pumpkin nails, look no further! Although I'm sure at least some of these will work with different colors as well, like the catface or the skelletonface above it.
Pumpkins, bats, blood drips and cobwebs, it just goes on and on, they really covered it all in this set! The blood drips will work great as paint drips as well I'm sure, and the trees near the bottom right could also look a little like tribals. Sideways in black, on a nice sponged base or gradient?
Halfway through the set, the theme switches to Thanksgiving/Harvest, and it'll make for lovely fall nails too! Especially this plate, it reminds me of what you'll find in a forest in this season. And it gives plenty options for colored decals!
You could grab a specific image of this plate, or just use it as a large full nail image; each nail could have its own text/image, yet all will match perfectly. This plate puts me in the mood for fall colors, warm scents like cinnamon and cloves, candles, cozy blankets, ... Lovely!
This plate clearly shows the Harvest theme, and for today's mani I used the top left image :)
Food full nail images! These just ask for a little extra color in the form of stamping decals or reversed stamping. Or you could combine a few nuts with the squirrel from plate BM-S206, add some leaves, done!
More food, including turkeys - if you're celebrating these holidays, this set might be just the thing for you! :)
Extra information: the plates measure 5.5x5.5 cm (2x2 inch) and come with the usual protective blue foil and cover on the back. The images transfer wonderfully, as usual with Bundle Monster plates. The whole set is currently on sale for $12.99 (normal price $14.99)!
I went for some colored decals to create some accentnails, starting with top coat on my Uber Mat, then I stamped the image in brown. I used 2 copper colors, a gold and some green to color in the design, then I used my basecolor on top of that (this way any possible airbubbles won't be visible after transferring the design!). The decals were quite uneven, so I used a ridgefiller and then I let the whole thing dry. I applied 1 coat of the basecolor, placed the decal on my nails, did a cleanup and sealed them in with top coat. Because of the ridgefiller, I only needed a thin coat to get an even result :) On a side note, I'm sure it's obvious that I love this basecolor ^^

What do you think of this set, and are you celebrating these holidays? I like these plates, they capture the themes very well I'd say, but I think I'd use it a lot more if we celebrated those holidays here. And I'm very curious to see what other themed sets Bundle Monster will come up with, they're referring to this set as 'part 1 of our Occasions Collection'. I could imagine a set for each season, and it wouldn't surprise me if we'll see Christmas trees, snowflakes and winter sweaters next!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! ♥
