I’m back today with a review and tutorial on a new stamper by Bundle Monster. It’s called the Mochi Stamper Station and it’s probably the biggest stamper I have ever seen! I prepared a video tutorial for you so you can see it live in action. Make sure to take a look!
I also have a mini review on two other products from Bundle Monster I tried recently. The Lotus Mat and the Poli-Peel. I will talk a little bit about those first and then move on to the star of the show, the Mochi Stamper!
First up is the Bundle Monster Lotus Mat. I’m sure most of you have seen or heard about the “mat hype”. It seems like everyone and their mum is releasing one of these mats. Uberchic were the first I believe to release one designed specifically as a stamping mat. I had previously been using a silicone baking mat for the same purpose, a tip Deborah (Love Varnish) gave me. The Lotus Mat is thinner than the silicone mat I own and also less sticky. You can use the mat to create stamping decals, dry marble decals, etc. It’s also a great way to protect the surface of your desk or table when doing nails.
My Lotus Mat came folded in a small box. The fold in the middle of the mat is still quite visible even after a week of it lying flat so that’s a bit of a shame, but hopefully it will smooth out eventually. While I think it’s a nice product, I’m not sure if it’s worth the hype. I do like it but wasn’t life changing for me by any means. It’s a pretty fun item to own and definitely great for stamping addicts.
Next up is the Bundle Monster Poli-Peel. This is their version of a liquid latex product, designed to shield your cuticles from messy nail art techniques. Now this is what I would call a life changing product! I can honestly no longer live without one of these for doing nail art. It speeds up the clean up process so much. Think watermarbles, stamping, sponge gradients and so on. The Bundle Monster one has a pink colour and dries quickly but most importantly peels off very effortlessly. Definitely one of the best I have tried so far, I would highly recommend it. That is, if you are not allergic to latex of curse. Beware though as latex has a “fishy” smell but I think you get used to it after a while.
We’ve finally arrived at the Bundle Monster Mochi Stamper, which is what we came here to see! This stamper is HUGE, almost 5 cm x 12cm. Now… why would I need such a large stamper, I hear you ask. Well it looks like a beast first of all so it’s kind of awesome but, it’s perfect for buffet style plates with images this cover the whole plate. It allows you to stamp 5 fingers (or more) at a time using one of those images which is really neat. It’s also great for stamping decals aka reverse stamping.
It does take a bit of getting used to so I recommend it for experienced stampers. I also recommend giving it a wash the first time and then priming it with a magic eraser sponge to take away the shine, then it picks up really well. Rolling to pick up works best too and as always you need to work quickly so the polish doesn’t dry too much. Let’s check out the video shall we?
Hope the video was helpful to get a better look at the Mochi Stamper. It’s so big right?!
Here’s a look at the nail art I created in the video. I used Cirque Colors Carpe Diem as my base and did the stamping marble with China Glaze Sea Spray, China Glaze Fade Into Hue and China Glaze First Mate. Then stamped over it using Barry M Foil Effects in silver and used Bundle Monster plate BM S108. Finished with top coat (forgot to film that part oops!).
The Bundle Monster Mochi Stamper will be launching on the official website on Thursday February 4th. It will retail for $13.99 but will be available at an introductory price when it launches so be sure to grab it during the first week! The Poli-Peel and Lotus Mat are both available right now.
