Holo Leaves

Happy Friday!!

Today I have my Nubar Reclaim mani with some simple nail art on top. I used the original BM plates for this one, BM 29. When I first saw this polish I knew that this design would go perfect with it!

I'm not sure if it was because I applied the top coat on this one, but I did notice the holo wasn't as prominent, it may have just been that the stamp was on top though.

I was debating what colour I should use for stamping and thought that black would stand out the most. My boyfriend originally said white would be good, but later enjoyed the black. I think if I could find the right gold to stamp with it might look good too, I'll have to try that out next time, maybe with a dark, creme green.

Since these are the old BM plates, the mages were a little small for my fingers, both width and height wise. I did manage to center them pretty well for the larger nails (pointer and middle). For my thumb I stamped 3 times, but you couldn't tell :) I forgot to include a photo.

These last 2 photos were taken close to when I removed it, see the little tip wear, thats ALL I got! ONE FREAKEN COAT of polish lasted me a week! I really need to get some more Nubar!

I enjoyed this mani, it was fun and very durable. I only wish that bundle monster had created their full nail images larger in the first place, there are some really nice designs. If they did a re-release of them, only larger, would you consider re-purchasing them?

Have a great weekend :)


  1. Looks awesome! I personally wouldn't re-buy the BM fit my nails even when they are long (long, to me anyway, as my nails are pretty small) and I also think there are so many cooler image plates out there that I'd spend the money on them versus rebuying BM's.

  2. I like that with the stamping. I have that plate and I should do that, some day. :)

    I found that topcoat does slightly inhibit the holo in Reclaim. But not a lot and I just can't go topcoat-less. lol

  3. mrsrexy - lucky that your nails are small enough, mine are just a bit too small. And my thumb? forget about it!

    Ice Queen - thanks :)
