Recently the lovely Tiana from Bundle Monster sent me a bumper nail mail package 😊
In this post I’ll be reviewing the Lotus Mat and Mochi Stamping Station.
The Lotus Mat
I’m sure everyone knows what these silicone mats are all about. You can use them to protect your working space and practice mani’s using the clear and black spaces to try stamping images out. The nail shapes, tho a bit large, are great for making decals. I like the black sections to try pale coloured polish on. It’s easy to clean up as it’s acetone resistant. I can’t imagine nail life without a mat!
You can do gradients on the Lotus Mat to save all the mess on your nails. Crafty!!
Mochi Stamping Station (or Mochi Stamper)
This is something totally unique to me. I’ve seen large stampers but none this large.
It’s semi squishy and a bit sticky. I did prime it by wiping with a magic eraser as it was quite oily when it arrived. I have not used acetone on it. It picks up very well by either rolling over the image or by pressing the plate onto the upturned mocha stamper. on the large buffet plates I did have to hang onto the edges when stamping or it fell out of the holder! It’s easy to clean off the excess with a lint roller. Two stamping cards come with it, a firm and a flimsy one. I don’t get along with the flimsy ones 😁
The finished mani using the Lotus Mat and Mochi Stamper
I also used the Lotus mat for this Mani
Striping tape was applied directly to the Lotus Mat
Then I painted over the tape using a glitter polish, allowed to dry before adding a quick dry top coat and once that was dry I peeled the decal off the mat.
They were cut to shape and then applied over still tacky polish
Another coat of top coat to seal the decals down. Very little clean up of the messy glitter and so easy compared to applying the striping tape to my nails!
I also used the Mochi Stamper for this mani
I started with a gradient
and stamped using my Mochi Stamper
I managed to do three nails from the one image.
The finished mani 😊
I’ve enjoyed reviewing both of these products and will definitely be using them a lot in the future.
The Lotus Mat is available from Bundle Monster now and the Mochi Stamper on February 4th.
