Born Pretty Store Review

*AD - Gifted*
Hello lovelies! I'm back with another Born Pretty Store review today. It feels like it's been a long time since I've shared any Born Pretty goodies, so this is probably long overdue (I think it was actually the Halloween plates I shared here). This time I'm back with four new stamping plates - all of which are Christmassy/wintery except on odd one out. Read on for a closer look at each mani and more info!

I'll start with the odd one out first, Nicole Diary plate L33 (item #50885, online here). The plate is full of animal print designs, with various images using tiger/zebra, leopard, and snake prints. Using pink and white stamping polishes, I stamped some of the leopard print images over a base of Zoya 'Avi' (swatched here). This didn't come out quite how I had imagined it, but I figured I'd share it anyway!

Now onto the more Christmassy manis.

Two of the plates I chose, Nicole Diary L32 (item #50884, online here) and Born Pretty Snowflake L001 (item #50896, online here) are full of a mix and match of snowflake images. I thought that they'd pair really well together, so that's exactly what I did. I stamped in white over a gradient of LOG Cosmetics 'Pink Peony' and 'Morning Glory' (swatched here).

Last up is a quick mani using Nicole Diary plate 197 (item #50886, online here). This plate has more of the traditional Christmas images, from Santa Claus to reindeer to snowmen. I paired one of the Christmas tree images with some of the baubles. I stamped over Zoya 'Soko' (swatched here) using a Born Pretty gold stamping polish.

What do you think? Are you fully in the Christmas spirit yet? I feel like I've been doing Christmas nails for weeks, and I still have so many to share with you all! As always for the plates themselves, I had no issues with pick up or stamping. I find both Nicole Diary and Born Pretty to be fairly consistent in that regard.

You can find all the plates mentioned, along with hundreds of others, on the Born Pretty website here.

Hope to see you in the next post!
