Bundle Monster review, this time featuring the 3 piece Fundamentals Gel Polish set that includes a portable LED light. The portable LED light is actually a little hot pink flashlight, so cool :-D!
Let's take a closer look!
The Bundle Monster Fundamentals gels are one step speed gels meaning you don't need basecoat, you don't need topcoat AND they don't have a tacky layer after curing. You literally slap them on, cure, add a second layer if needed, cure again and you are finished. The portable LED lamp can only cure one finger at a time but it works very well, I only needed 30 seconds to cure the gel. It's also great for flash curing (a quick flash at your tips to prevent the polish from shrinking) since it's more easy to handle than an actual lamp.
Bundle Monster Button Down is a crisp white shade. It might not look as shiny in my swatches but it is. whites are just harder to capture. This one had a really thick formula, and the first coat seemed to be a bit shrinking, but after a flash cure before actually curing and a second layer, it looked smooth and perfect. The opacity is great!
Bundle Monster Cocktail Dress is a black shade. It's a bit more squishy and slightly less opaque compared to the other 2. It still becomes opaque in 2 coats, there's just this hint of a jelly finish near the tips, it also pulled back the most so I definitely recommend a flash cure right after applying a fresh layer.
Bundle Monster Rouge Lipstick is a bright red shade. It photographed a tad mor eorange than it actually is in real life, and the opacity on this one is great. I used 2 coats in my swatch. The formula is thick but gels are much easier to handle even if they are thick, since you can go over them again and again until you cure them.
These 3 shades make a perfect basic set of gels, and because of their one step speed gel formula they'd work great for nail art as well! Rouge Lipstick is a lovely shade of red and the crisp finish on Button Down is just perfect. I do wish Cocktail Dress was as opaque as the others though.
Have you ever tried gel polish from Bundle Monster? And what do you think of these 3 shades? Tell me in the comments!
