China Glaze - Tart-y For The Party + BM315

Hey guys! Today I have a polish from the China Glaze Spring 2013 Avant Garden collection to show you, and my first stamped mani using my new BundleMonster plates! :)

China Glaze Tart-y For The Party (+ stamping with BM-315)

Tart-y For The Party is a really pretty purple creme. It's not quite pastel but I wouldn't call it a mid tone purple either... And I can't quite decide if it's more cool toned or warm toned. :/ You can be the judge of that LOL. I thought it was quite unique to my collection when I bought this, but I actually do own a few similar shades haha. I'm just a sucker for purples (which is weird because I don't wear them that often and can feel like they look bad on me).  This is actually quite similar to OPI Do You Lilac It. I haven't swatched them side by side but in the bottle they do look similar. Tart-y For The Party is definitely brighter, however. So not dupes IMO, but similar :)

I then stamped using my brand new BundleMonster plates! :D I'm still pretty new to stamping so bear with me! I've been practicing a lot since I got them and I'm having a lot of fun with it.
I used BM-315 with Sinful Colors White On White.

Close up - you can see the stamping isn't perfect close up but from a distance it looks fine! :)
OH, I want to ask you guys about my photos. I don't know whether I prefer my photos taken in my light box (the ones in this post), or the photos taken outside (in my previous post). Let me know which ones you like better because I want to be more consistent with my photos since I switch it up pretty often haha. I think I prefer the light box photos - they look a bit more professional IMO but yeah let me know please! :)
And I know I have been changing up my watermark a lot LOL. I think I'm really happy with this one though. I might make it a bit more opaque though... You can't see it much lol! I'm kinda tired of the around-the-cuticle watermark. :P

Have you picked up any colours from the Avant Garden collection? Or will you be? I'm still not sure if I want to grab any more... I can't decide lol. I might pick up Mimosa's Before Mani's and Keep Calm Paint On. Still undecided, though. :P

Thanks for reading! I hope you have an awesome weekend :D I have a pretty full on weekend so I may not have a post up until the end of the weekend... We'll see. :) ♥

This color is on my wishlist! I also want the Keep Calm and Paint On and Mimosas Before Manis too. You should totally get them so I can see how they look ;) !

Beautiful polish combo, very soft and feminine!

I prefer light box photos aesthetically, though my view is probably tainted by the fact that I live in an apartment and it's hard to me to get any good photos outside (plus, I'd look like a crazy person photographing my nails on my balcony!)
