The Monster Bundle Package that Nail Polish Canada sent me is from the 2012 collection. They are sold for $23.99 per package of 25 plates, or $4.00 per plate. If you're just getting into nail art and you're interested in nail stamps, this is a great beginners package. Konad plates can range from $7.00 to $12.00, which definitely adds up if you're looking to grow your collection.

If you're new to nail stamping, you should know that in order to get a nice stamped image you need to use a thick opaque nail polish or special stamping polish. Normal nail polishes are too translucent, so they don't show up that well. This bundle only comes with plates, so you need to buy the stamper, scrapper ($8.75 for both), and stamping nail polish ($8.50 each) separately.
What I like about Monster bundle is the variety of images and how inexpensive they are for image plates. My favorites from this bundle are the full nail images! The sharpness and details of the images still do not compare to Konad plates, but they are definitely sufficient. Also, if you have smaller nail beds like myself, these nail plates may not be the best fit for you. Most of the images are quite large and some images get cut off, which is a problem that I don't normally have with my Konad plates. So all in all, despite my fastidiousness over the small details, I would still recommend this package!

I played around with some of the plates, and here are some ideas I came up with.
