Blue Hearts

I did a nail polish haul a few weeks ago but they were really cheap polishes named Winnie. One 8ml bottle cost Php15, if I estimate it to US currency it's almost like three bottles for $1 :)
The polishes I used in here are Winnie #34 (sheer shimmery blue with green undertones, reminds me of mermaid colors), Winnie #50 (glitter, teal like blue) and 24k in Crystal Rose Quarts (orange flakies with greenish blue undertones, close to Winnie #34).
The plate I used are KD17, I will soon post my review and pic/swatch of it ^_^
and Fab FUN2 plate on my ring finger.
I really love how this turned out, though it took a bit of work it was worth it in the end.
Will be thinking of other combos for my cheap and pretty polishes ^_^

KD Stamping Image Plates

I've just finished swatching all my KD stamping image plates last night, now I need to take pictures and edit them but I'm too busy finishing my nail challenge for tomorrow and taking care of my niece (she's a cutie!)
Hopefully I'll have some time later so I can post my review and swatches soon  ^_^

My picks for the China Glaze 2012 Fall Collection

China Glaze Elephant Walk

China Glaze Exotic Encounters
China Glaze I'm Not Lion
Scrangie just posted the China Glaze On Safari Collection Fall 2012 Swatches and Review and I just had to see what pretties China Glaze has come up with for fall ^_^
As you can tell...
Elephant Walk
 Exotic Encounters
and I'm Not Lion
are my picks!
Jungle Queen was a contender but you need direct light to see the purple-pink shimmers *sigh*
I like unique wearable colors so these are awesome to wear morning-evening, you can even wear all three... just think gradient :)
If you want to see more of the collection just head on over to Scrangie's and read more of the new 2012 fall collection!

OB39 Image Plate

Pic @ Zark's Burgers

I really like that silhouette of The Statue of Liberty, it kinda looks like this pic I took in one of the burger joints we go to.
 I wasn't able to swatch the UK flags because it was so hard to scrape the image, when I try to pick it up it always turns up mushy.
I'm a bit disappointed with the small square of stars on this plate, it's just too small to discern that they are stars  I mean you have to look really close to see them.
All the other designs are nice though ^_^

Bundle Monster 225

This is the last plate for the second Bundle Monster set. What I love: Floral, vines and the ornament. As much as I would like to go gaga over the skull and crossbones full nail design the etching is a bit defective because some of the crossbones looked like ribbons and the skull is not as crisp as the one on the BM211 plate. The other full nail that looks to me like feathers falling, I'm not so sure how to use it because some does look like feathers and the others look like gravel rocks :/
The floral design is still pretty so I'll just have to focus on that.
I am planning to get the third set but I'm still waiting for the Summer Cheeky stamping plates to get released which I don't know exactly when that is. For now I joined The Manicured Monkey's giveaway for a chance to win the third Bundle Monster set, awesome!!! ^_^

Bundle Monster 224

Haunted house ^_^
My sister says it's a castle so I'll give that to her, hahaha
The floral patterns are nice I think they may be good for layering stamps, I think I might've seen a nail design like that....
The swirls are cool and the full nail design with the pumpkin, well it's the exact pumpkin on the BM222 only slightly smaller

Bundle Monster 223

I've seen and also have a few of zebra print on my stash but this one is one of the most great looking zebras. I like how the lines are slimmer, it would look so much better on small nails. The ghost looks so cute ^_^
The rest of the designs are okay on my book and the plate is etched quite perfectly.

Bundle Monster 222

This is a very unique plate, haven't seen plates that has tribal barbs like these. The heart-like camouflage is pretty cool too and YAY for the X'mas cookie! Halloween pumpkin, can't wait to use that and nice graphic butterfly ^_^
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Bundle Monster 221

I like the tribal print but it's a little too narrow than the other full nail designs, I wonder why that is. The flowers are nice, the animal print not so much it looks a bit lacking and the other full design is just okay. The stem of leaves is cute, I wish there were more ^_^

Bundle Monster 220

Needless to say but I love those starssss!!! That floral pattern beside the star is so pretty, I wish they made a full nail design of that. I really like this plate hopefully I'd be able to put it to good use ^_^

Bundle Monster 219

Tribal french tips, NICE! These designs are very suitable for french tips, I mean the reason to use french tips should be to vamp up your nail tips and these are great for that ^_^

Bundle Monster 216

This is the first of five french plates included in the second set. I like the designs on this plate, you can use some of the designs for full nail designs ^_^
The images are so crisp, I love it!

Bundle Monster 215

Snake/reptile design is quite original, though I've seen a scaly design from an XL plate this one looks much better. I like the fan design as well and so is the mosaic design. The crowns are cute but the one on the right has a flaw, tsk tsk tsk.

Bundle Monster 214

This plate is an easy favorite for me, the feathers and deer/stag just looks so awesome. I've used the feather a week ago and I love it! I'll try to post the picture soon ^_^
I do have one gripe about this plate, usually plates could be used like mirrors but my BM214 has a hazy top and it's a bit bent but not too much that it's unusable.
I'll take a picture of how bent it is and I'll just update this post.

Bundle Monster 213

Stilettos, I wish I wore them so I can be crazy about this plate. This plate also has holiday designs such as bats and a sleigh with a present on top, good about this designs you can use them separately like maybe just use the largest bat or just use the sleigh. The retro like band designs are okay, I'm not hankering to use them though. The other full nail design I'm not sure how to describe some has use it like fireworks using shimmer or holo for stamping, I wish I had shimmer polishes that could stamp well. Oh this plate has a nicked etching on the edge near the bats, so I guess that's a booboo.

Bundle Monster 212

Peacock design feathers really nice!
So many nail stampers who has the 2nd Bundle Monster have used these designs a plenty and I can't really blame them ^_^
I do kinda find the couple of designs on the right side of the plate kinda off, I'm not sure how to use them :\
Rating: ♥♥♥♥♥

Bundle Monster 211

I love the rows of flowers ^_^
I do like skulls as well but I sort of already have one that looks kinda like the skull in this plate so I'm not that crazy about it. The rest of the designs are pretty unique except for the pebble like circles, I don't know about me but I'm not impressed with circle designs :/
