Multicoloured Paisley Flow
I’ve called this manicure a multicoloured paisley flow because it uses a stamping plate from Bundle Monster’s most recent collection, the Paisley Flow collection.
Paisley Flow is a collection of ten square, buffet-style plates that carry on from where the Shangri-La collection left off.
It has some brilliant open images, which are great for colouring in as reverse decals. The set currently costs $14.99, or you can buy individual plates for $2.49.
I used benecos Oh Lala! as a base, then stamped using BM-S116, which is called Shattered Tranquility.
I stamped with the new Bundle Monster Glass Stamper, a clear stamper with a clear holder. It is absolutely my new favourite clear stamper. I love how well the clear stamper heads seem to pick up and this one is better than the other two that I have. (I have the original Clear Jelly Stamper and a Moyra one). It currently costs $7.99 and comes with a spare head and a scraper too.
I filled the image while it was on the stamper with the other benecos polishes I have: Ice Ice, Baby! (pale blue), Peach Sorbet (peach) and French Lavender (dusky purple). I left some gaps for the pink of Oh Lala! to show through.
I didn’t do the best job ever. Admittedly, it looks fab from a distance, but it doesn’t stand up too well to close scrutiny. I didn’t leave it quite long enough to dry and the image is a little warped, especially on my middle finger. I know lots of people leave their reverse stamping decals to dry for a while, then peel them off and place on the nail. My favourite way to do it is to stamp them straight from the stamper, and often I am a little too impatient to get the job done, as I was in this case.
I adore this new collection of plates, and love how the four benecos polishes go together too. I wore this for a little while like this, then mattified it – which looked even better.

- Stamping polish: Essence Stamp Me! Black
- Stamping plate: Bundle Monster BM-S116 (Shattered Tranquility)

I think you did a fabulous job! Perhaps if you compare to the plate you can see some small differences but just looking at your nails it looks PERFECT! I’d love to see a tutorial on working on the stamper…probably some on youtube…have to check. Thank you!
Some gorgeous nails these are! The stamping is perfection.
