finally i can use this plate!

Hey guys! Today's post is brought to you by the awesome customer service at Bundle Monster.
I noticed on their facebook that a girl who had a messed up plate contacted them and they replaced it for her.
Now, I bought mine last June, so I didn't think they would do anything for me. But I emailed them through Amazon and they replaced both my faulty plates!

I sent them this image showing what was wrong.
BM19 is now perfect, BM21 still looks a little iffy on some of the images - but not the star. Which is what I wanted the most.
So I used it last night!

I've wanted to use this image forever and thought I would never be able to.

So while I was swatching Pacific Blue I remembered that Jane had told me that Pacific Blue looked great as a base for OPI's Last Friday Night. So I ran to my stash and grabbed it.

2 coats of glitter over 2 coats of color. It almost looks like what LFN would look like if it wasn't sheer.
Then I added a coat of Seche Vite and patiently waited until it was dry enough to stamp on.

Stars! :D
I stamped from BM21 with Wet N Wild Wild Shine Black Creme.

I meant to alternate the stamp on every nail but apparently I forgot to do that on my pinky. Oh well!

Again, the no flash picture is more color accurate.

This is so vibrant and glittery and nice. I'll keep this on for a few days. I like having such bright blue nails, they really stand out. I've been at work for 2 hours and I've already had 2 compliments on them!

In other exciting news, my package from Leslie arrived today! I won't get to open it until I'm home from work but I am super excited.
And my Starry Temptress collection and new BM plates should be here before the end of the week.

I'm off to work on my polish stash/swatch list! Have a lovely day!


  1. Wow wonderful base colour and it looks sooo cool with the stars =)

  2. Great customer service! I wonder if I should contact them as I also got a faulty plate.
    Loved the mani, it looks great! Love the blue shade with the OPI glitter, the stars just added an extra awesomeness!

  3. Looks awesome! So glad Bundle Monster could help you out. I just got my order of Last Friday Night and I want to try it over both Shower Together and Secret Periwinkle. I haven't used the star design yet--I might have to give it a try!

  4. That is so nice that you got a new plate sent to you. I love the design/mani you did with it! Hope your nail mail comes soon! :)

  5. Hi,BM has a great customer service. Your mani is so cute! The star is also my favourite,it's the first design I tried when I got my plates.

  6. i love that color! I have awarded you the Kreativ Blogger Award on my blog. :)
