Born Pretty Store Holo and Stamping

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! I can’t wait to enjoy a relaxing weekend 🙂

A few days ago I was excited to finally receive my first ever Born Pretty Store parcel, after a long wait with shipping and customs delays. It was filled with so many goodies I didn’t know what to try first! But since I’ve been lusting after holo polishes, the first thing to go on my nails was a holo.

Next, I wanted to try out one of my new stamping plates. It was a tough decision which to try, but in the end I decided fishies go well with blue, so I went crazy with plate QA62. I also tried out the Born Pretty Store stamping polish for the first time.

It might have worked better with more fish on my pinkie, but I COULD NOT resist that little penguin! born pretty store holo polish #10 stamped with QA62 fishI know my stamping isn’t great, but aren’t the fishies cute? Then of course, I had to try it with a matte top coat as well!born pretty store holo polish #10 stamped with QA62 fish matte top coatI was curious to see how the holo would look once mattified, and while I like it, in this case I preferred it shiny.
