Born Pretty Store Review

*AD - Gifted*
Hello lovelies. Today I'm back with another Born Pretty Store review. It's been quite a long time since I've reviewed any Born Pretty items with all the massive postal delays recently. I actually had two different parcels from them arrive very closely together, so I'm just going to put them together and show you all the items in this post. This time around I have two stamping polishes and four stamping plates to show you. Read on to for more info and to see all of my manis!

Born Pretty Store Review @acertainbeccaa

First up is a marble mani using Nicole Diary plate 148 (item #48665, online here) and Born Pretty stamping polish BP-AC06 'Ariel Mermaid' (item #46533, online here). I stamped one of the marble strip images over Barry M Green Origins 'Charcoal'.

I also used the same plate for turquoise stone inspired marble mani (full details here).

Next I have a water-inspired fish mani. I started with a base of Zoya 'Emerson', and sponged on Zoya 'Leif'. I then stamped one of the fish from Nicole Diary plate 157 (item #49050, online here) using Born Pretty stamping polish BP-AC04 'Tulip Celebration' (item #46533, online here). I finished by adding a heart of flowers using Born Pretty plate Flower Tango L004 (item #49339, online here).

Next up is Nicole Diary 172, a fluid nail art stamping plate (#49664, online here). I do actually have some fluid nail art polishes, but I've never sat down to play with them. This plate is a super easy way to achieve the same cell effect with minimal effort. I stamped several of the patterns over a smoosh of Zoya 'Emma', 'Kristie', 'Jessica', 'Maren', and 'Harbor' (all swatched here).

Finally, I have Nicole Diary plate 146 (item #48663, online here). I stamped various images all from this plate over a base of Zoya 'Colleen', and using stamping polishes including Painted Polish 'Stamped in Starfruit' and a Born Pretty Store gold.

I also used the same plate for a lot of the images on this cactus mani I shared recently (see that post here).

What do you think? I tend to like everything I receive from Born Pretty. I've always found their products very consistent, and never had any problems. Their stamping polishes pick up first time and transfer well to the nail. Their stamping plates are all well etched and I never have problems with pick up on those either. Hopefully now that the post is getting back to normal it won't be such a long time before my next review!

You can find all the items mentioned, along with thousands of others, on the Born Pretty Store website here. You can use my code BCAB10 for 10% off full price items.

Hope to see you in the next post!
