Bundle Monster Peace Out, Astronaut #NOTD

For a while there I thought I wouldn’t be able to do nail art for a long time. All of my nails broke and they looked awful. On top of that,  my cuticles were a mess. They haven’t fully grown back yet. However, they’ve gotten to a point where I can do nail art without pain and have it look good on some manicured nails. When I bought the Bundle Monster Festival nail plate set last year, I bought it mostly for plate BM-S303. That plate has the coolest images on it. So, using that plate and BM-2305, I create this nail art design that I never want to take off. Seriously, the arrows look so cool. Found out how I got this Bundle Monster Peace Out, Astronaut #NOTD down below!

But instead I got this super cute, sugar-coma inducing candy design. I’ve never made stamping nail art decals and actually used them, so creating this nail art was a bit of a challenge for me. I think it turned out pretty good and I have some tips and tricks to create a perfect nail polish decal.

I bought a plate from Bundle Monster to do a fall nail art, and after buying OPI Yank My Doodle, I knew that I had to use the two together. I’ve never done a layered stamping nail art before and it was a lot of fun to create. This mani screams fall to me and when I look down at my nails, all I think of is pumpkin spice. This doesn’t have pumpkin on it, but that’s just how I feel. Learn how I created this down below!
