I can hear you thinking: "The Tomato Test"? Yes, that is the correct title for this post! Let me give you a short introduction to the idea behind this post.
A couple of weeks ago, I got the Bundle Monste imageplates in. They come in a set of 21 plates and are available via amazon. The plates have some great designs so I'm really happy to have these. However, while I was removing the foil that was on the plates, I literally sliced my finger open. Anyway.. This is the first part of my Bundle Monster Imageplates review :)
This post is picture heavy!
The Bundle Monster imageplates. These are just 5 out of the 21 plates. They have a great variety in designs and that's something I really like.
Bundle Monster imageplate on the left, Konad imageplate on the right. The plates are the same size, but Konad imageplates hold 5 images and Bundle Monster holds 6. Because of that, the images on the Bundle Monster plates are slightly smaller so that might be something to think of for the ladies with longer or wider nails.
We're getting to the core of this review. See the edges of this plate? They're really really sharp. To demonstrate this, let's meet todays assistant..
Mister Tomato. I will demonstrate the sharpness of the Konad and Bundle Monster imageplates with help of my lovely red assistant.
First up is the Konad imageplate. I will press the plate on the tomato and after that I will roll the plate back and forth over one side of the tomato.
You can see the impact of the imageplate on the tomato. There's some damage, but not much. You can see the trail the plate has left over my assistant..
Next up is the Bundle Monster imageplate. I will do the same as I did with the Konad imageplate; press it on the tomato and roll the plate back and forth over it.
Oi, that doesn't look really good, does it? Thankfully I can show you this on the tomato instead of on my own finger. The imageplate is as sharp as a knife! Damn, no wonder I sliced my finger open.
And this is what Mister Tomato looks like after the Bundle Monster plate was through with it. Ouch..
My conclusion; these imageplates have lovely images, but please please please be careful while working with these. I cut myself while getting the foil off, so I my advice is to hold the plate in the center of the plate while you're removing the plastic. Don't hold the plate around the edges, although it may be more comfortable (if you still have undamaged fingers, that is).
Besides that, my advice is to not let your children or other young kids play with these plates. If you decide to stamp images from these plates on the nails of children, do not leave them unattended. I'm not exaggerating when I tell you that these plates can be very dangerous.
Have fun, but be careful as well :)
Thanks for stopping by!
