Born Pretty Review, Tri Colour Gel Polish

Today's look is an amazing Gel Polish I was sent for review.
This was my first ever try of a Thermal Gel. I now can't wait to try out the other two colours from this line that I was sent. The colour change on these is so extreme and lovely. The formula is a little thick, but still totally manageable. I would totally recommend this to you guys. It's just lovely.

All in all, the Gel Polish from Born Pretty Store linked here performed perfectly, and is a beauty to wear. If you'd like to try out the polish, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

Born Pretty Stamping Product Review

Born Pretty Store linked here recently sent me some Stamping items for review. As I've never tried their stamping polish before, I thought I'd create two looks on two polish backgrounds so we can check it out.

I was sent #37 polish in a cool shimmery green and for the first look I used dream catcher inspired Plate BP-L100. I stamped in black and the green on baby pink. The Born Pretty stamping polish stamped beautifully, although in the photos appears more silver than green. It was crisp and picked up very well.

I then created this second look on blue with images from both plates BP-L100 and BP-192 that I was sent. The rest of plate BP-192 is super cute Reindeer images that I'll be using next Christmas. For this tribal, new 'age-y' look I only used the stag.

The stag was too wide at the antlers for my finger, but easily shrunk by squishing the stamper head during application. I loved the gems from BP-L100 and want to do another look of filling them in with gem tone glitter polishes!

All in all, the three stamping products from Born Pretty Store linked here performed perfectly.

Vitry Nail Care Review

After being sent a bottle of Vitry Nail Care by Nail Polish Canada for review linked here, I started using it right away. My nails have gotten dry and peeling since winter and furnace season hit, and I've also been harder on them lately with lots going on at home. The first picture was the current state of my nails.

The next photo is a capture of my first use. This treatment worked great under polish as a bit of a ridge filler as well. It was also incredibly shiny.

I used the treatment frequently over a two week period to give it a good chance to work. My nails were so thin and brittle that I was surprised to notice a change in two days. I didn't get much in the way of length in the trial period, but I felt a thickening and strengthening on just day two and the pealing I had just flaked off.

This next picture is after the trial period, and you can totally tell the difference. I did not change anything else from my recent less strict nail routine.

As a previous user of Orly Nail Envy, I can comment that the results were the same when I began that treatment. I feel confident that after a few months the growth would be amazing and the nails very strong. I totally can' believe the strength difference over such short a time and the before and after pictures totally prove my point.
I totally recommend this treatment and you can find it linked here at Nail Polish Canada.

Cheers all,

Born Pretty Store Review, Black Gel Pot

This look was created with a really cool product I received from Born Pretty Store.
Black Pantyhose linked here.  This gel polish is a sheer black gel pot polish. I applied base coat followed by one coat of Black Pantyhose. I then dotted my dots with blaco acrylic paint and added one more coat of gel and sealing it with gel top coat.

My swamp dotticure turned out amazing. This gel was really great to work with and lasted forever on the nail. I used a cleanup brush to apply the polish and cured it as usual under my LED lamp. I totally recommend trying these cool gel pots.

I loved the sheer and interesting look you can create with this gel. I'd love to try some black stamping soon. If you'd like to try out the polish, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

Born Pretty Store, Stamping Plates BP-144 and BP-127

Today's looks were created using plates  BP-144 and BP-127 I was sent for review from
Born Pretty Store. For my cherries BP-144 look I used two coats of Pipe Dream Polish Red Light and stamped my cherries before filling them via the leadlight technique.

For my Bows look I used Picture Polish Imperial in two coats and stamped the bow shoes and little stars from BP-127. I filled the images via the leadlight as well and added some dotting.

I loved both of these looks and the stamping plates were both filled with great images and were greatly etched. If you'd like to try out these plates, use this 10% off discount code UNGX31 they are offering my readers!

Born Pretty Store, Laser Chrome Powder

Today I have a loose powder review for you from Born Pretty Store. The Laser Chrome Powder linked here is so stunning, I wore it for a week over a base of Gelaze Spontaneous. I applied this by rubbing it into the inhibition layer of my second coat of the gel polish. Once I was happy with the coverage, I topped it with Gel Topcoat.

This was the easiest to apply loose glitter/powder I have tried so far, and the multi-shift glitter payoff was amazing! As I type this my fingers are gleaming in a gold tone, while twenty minutes ago at my kids school they looked green!

I highly highly recommend this one for pure gorgeous factor and ease of use!!!

Born Pretty Almond Oil and Plate BP-144 Review

Today I have some new goodies from Born Pretty Store.
First up is seriously my new favorite cuticle oil! This oil is available at Born Pretty Store linked here.
This cuticle oil is Almond scented and I mean like amazing almond cookies or something! I once had a hand cream that smelled just like this, and was so sad when I couldn't get it anymore. I've used it for a couple days and find it very moisturizing, but once rubbed in matte enough for photos. I included a swatch photo of Gelaze Frostbite below where I've used it so you can see for yourself. This oil was available in a few yummy scents, but after smelling the almond I would highly recommend it.

For the look below I double stamped the sunflower-ish image from BP-144 over some white stripes. I was going for a late summer/ nautical feel. I loved this image, but chose this plate for review because of the stripes and cherry image on it. I still have to post that one as an advanced stamp look, but I couldn't resist stamping with the floral over my blue base. I tested this image and the cherry, and both were perfectly etched.
The plate BP-144 is available at the Born Pretty Store linked here.
