I wanted to do a fun mani refresh with Orly's Au Champaign, which was wearing fantastically by the way, so I turned to my newest Bundle Monster plates for inspiration. Looking through each plate I finally decided on a bold houndstooth print. You may remember the original set of BM plates having a houndstooth pattern, and I actually used it too! You can check it out here.
If you don't remember is was a much smaller pattern with much smaller overall dimensions. So far I cannot say enough good things about the latest BM plates, the designs stamp crisp without any issues and provide full coverage for each nail including my thumb! That is really saying something. I think I may actually prefer them to Konad.
Back to the nail design, I chose a black stamping polish for the design and am really happy with the result and overall look. I find that since Au Champaign is not a stark white and has a shimmer it really softens the whole look. I absolutely love it!
