Review: BP-L049 Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate

Some items in this post were provided for honest review. This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

Can you believe it’s Monday already? That weekend went by in the blink of an eye! At least I have some fun nail art to share with you today. Today I am reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, plate BP-L049. I have actually already shared a manicure using one of the images from this plate, in my review of the pearl white stamping polish. Nothing on this plate was quite calling out to me to be used for decals or leadlighting, so instead I have two regular stamped looks to share with you today; I tried to be creative with the base and stamping colours instead.

Hi everyone!

As you know, I am a fan of many of the Born Pretty Store stamping products, and I use their stampers, stamping plates, and stamping polish regularly. They have recently added some pearl colours to their stamping polish lineup, and today I have the pearl white (#54) to share with you.

Swatches: Polish ‘M Words of Encouragement Collection (Partial)

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches of a few polishes from Polish ‘M to share with you. These are all from the Words of Encouragement collection. When this collection first came out, all of the swatches looked incredible and I ended up purchasing 4 of the 6 polishes. Those are the four I have to show you today! Three out of these are still available, and the two I didn’t get are also still available, all priced at $9 each – so go browse through the Polish ‘M store!

My Wedding Day Flowers – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does Paper! So far this week, I’ve done paper planes, love letters, wrapping paper, and colouring books.

I was really having a hard time coming up with an idea for the final day of The Digital Dozen does Paper when suddenly it occurred to me. There was one day in my life on which paper had an unusual significance. Don’t get me wrong, paper is important on many days – we use it to learn, to immerse ourselves in stories, to express ourselves. But on this one day, paper was a part of the celebration of my husband and I choosing a life together – my wedding day! I decided that rather than buying expensive flowers which would only wilt and die, I’d make my own flowers for my and my bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as all of the table decor – from paper! In fact, I posted a little about the process of making the flowers. I absolutely loved them and today’s nail art is inspired by those paper flowers that I painstakingly folded.

Paper Planes – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does paper! Can you believe the week is almost over already? I really feel as though this week as flown by. I have a more detailed freehand look today, inspired by paper planes! This is my recreation of a recent nail art posted by Narmai of Piggieluv, with my own spin of course. Narmai has the most amazing nail art ideas, but it is always a little intimidating trying to recreate them because she is so talented! Even though I think her original look was better, I’m pretty happy with my version.

Love Letters – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

This post contains affiliate links.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 3 of the Digital Dozen does Paper! One thing that we use paper for… is to write letters! Honestly, in this day and age, writing a letter on paper has become far less common. We can just send an email or a text message. But who among us didn’t make a pretty Valentine’s day card in our primary school years? (even if it was for your parents or sibling!) With that in mind, love letters are the theme of today’s nail art.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does paper and today I’ve done some wrapping paper nails. Wrapping paper seemed like the perfect way to interpret this theme – fun, colourful and easy to turn into nail art.

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is paper. Although this isn’t my favourite theme ever, I’ve managed to come up with a few fun ideas and I’m certain we’ll be seeing some fantastic nail art from the rest of the group. For my first paper look, I decided to do some colouring book nail art.
