Shangri La Review

Hello Nail Surfers 
Welcome to My Beach

Today I have the New Bundle Monster Shangri La Set.
These plates are available now and can be found 


High Tide Warning

Surfs UP

There are 10 Plates total in this Shangri La set .
Each plate is 2inches by 2 inches 
And all plates come with a Blue film on them that
needs to be removed before use.
There is a backing also on these plates.











Here is a quick swatch of random places
on each plate. Now keep in mind that if you notice
any patchy area's it's not that plate. It's user error .lol.
And also stamping on paper is not always the best.
I used Bundle Monster's Purple stamping polish for these swatches.
*Now wait til you see the polish and image on an actual nail in action. 
This is BM-S103 with Bundle Monster's 
Purple Stamping Polish.
Here I used BM-S105.
I used Black Knight by Funky Fingers for stamping polish.
Here I used BM-S101
over a Beach Sun Spray base.

Matte or Shiny?
I personally liked this Mani in Matte Finish.
This is from plate BM-S109.
I used acrylic paints as my base.
BM-S107 

BM-S106

So... What do you think of this Collection?

I really like how no matter how long,short or wide your nails
are, these plates will work for ALL.

Born Pretty Plate Review - Summer 2015 BP-LO

Hello Nail Surfers

Welcome to My Beach

Born Pretty Store is based is China.
Their prices are extremely reasonable.
Shipping can take 3-6 Wks.

They are truly on top of what's Trending.
They carry thousands of nail items.
They are not just a nail store.
I have gotten bracelets before and they were amazing.

As for this review I'll be talking about their stamping plates.

Awhile back Born Pretty was always known for knock
off (faux) plates. They did Not create their own then.

Times have certainly change.
They now have their own plates.
They are original images.
The quality is great and so is the price.

Plate Size 


 Image Size

This is a pretty common size these days.
1.5cm wide by 2. cm long 

At this angle you can see fine scratches.

But straight on, you do not.

Again, at this angle you can see some fine scratches.
And also some pit marks.

Straight on the scratches are not visible, but the pit marks still are.

This pic was taken during day and not in direct sunlight,
I can still see some minor pit marks.


Despite these minor imperfections, the plates still work
AMAZING! 


Owl Plate!


My only pet peeve is that the backing and curved
edges hold polish.

Here you can see the black line that
transferred from the edge.



Even cleaning those edges are a pain.
But it is worth it.
This Plate is AMAZING!



Words are always the most difficult to get to stamp Solid.
But Born Pretty Really did an amazing Job.
These plates are etched Perfectly!


I still have more to share :)









The Lace Plate!




These images are 1.5cm by 1.5cm

Can you tell I had a lot of Fun with these plates?
And I am still making  New Creations with these.

Now all I need is their plate holder and the rest of the
collection too. :)

All of the above plates can be found at
