Hey guys! I’ve got a huge haul post for you guys today! This is all the nail stuff I bought in May (because I forgot to do a post last month) and June, and it’s a lot. A lot more than I thought it was. Oops.

So, if you’re on a slower connection, I do apologize because this is super pic heavy.

Also, I’m going to try to get into the habit of making these monthly, so the next one isn’t quite so big. Unless I go a little crazy.

So, the winner of this week’s Adventures in Stamping theme (that post, as always, will be Sunday) was posted and it required that I have a French tip plate (well, the idea I have in my head does, anyway), and I remembered seeing this Stamping kit in Claire’s the last couple times I was in there, and I knew it had a French tip plate in the kit, so I begged The Fanboy and he was awesome and amazing and awesomely amazing and let me go ahead and get it so I’d be set for Sunday. And, I figured, I’d give a little bit of a review of it and then use the resulting nail art for TNCC.

As seen above, the kit contains three plates, a mini bottle of stamping polish, a stamper and a scraper. The only thing I didn’t review was the scraper, as I don’t use metal scrapers on my plates.

Warning: slightly image heavy.
