BMC Aint No Basic B!tch Speed Gel Collection Swatches and Review

Hello there! It's been SO long. My full time job pretty much took over my life for a while, so actually getting on my computer to write a blog just didn't happen. As I always promise, I will try to be better about uploading my regular nail art.

Okay, so today I am going to show you the Speed Gel collection by Bundle Monster called Aint No Basic B!tch. This is one of my favorite collections yet. :)

So one of the awesome things about this gel is that it is one step! You don't need a base or top coat to use it. I love that! I just filed the surface of my nails a little to get rid of the shine, wiped with alcohol and started my mani! I cured each coat in my LED lamp for 60 seconds. Another thing that's awesome - these are all just two thin coats! And of course, the colors are gorgeous!!! Love this collection!

This first color is a gorgeous black!! It is filled with tons of holographic glitter! I love it! Will definitely be using this a lot this fall/winter! It's called You're So Tragic! 

I also used the Bundle Monster Shangri-La Nail Stamping plate collection to do a little art work on the mani's. Here is the one I did on You're So Tragic. It's a Aztec kind of feel I think.

The next color in this collection is a bright and shimmery bubble gum pink! I adore it. It's called Pink Wednesdays. As I mentioned above, this is just 2 thin coats. 

I used this adorable star blossom pattern with a bright pink polish to give the mani a cute and floral vibe.

This next color is a really pretty shimmery blue, though in my pictures it comes up a little more blue/green. This color is so much more pretty in real life. I just couldn't do it justice. It's called So Fetch!

For this mani I used the Shagri-La plate just to give a little accent. I like how it turned out.

The next color I have to show you is a verrrry shimmery lime green. Just look at all that shimmery goodness. This one is called Cheeky. Unfortunately, my picture with nail art for this picture did not come out. Boo. :(

Wooo! Look at this super bright pink!!! It's called Can't Sit Here and it's a goooorgeous pearlescent hot pink. I love this one - I think it's my favorite. I think.... ;)

I used some black stamping polish to get this look using my Shargri-La plates. Then I added some black studs to finish off the look.

Last color is another gorgeous one. This one is packed with glitter and really shines in real life.
Its a pinky purple color and it's called Drama. I didn't use a on of my stamping plates to decorate because I thought the color was gorgeous on it's own. So, instead I added a crown charm. Get it? "Drama" queen. I know, I am hilarious.

So that is the entire Aint No Basic B!tch Collection. I really love this collection and really love speed gel! I hope they make more and more gel collections in speed gel. It's the best!
