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.

born pretty store holo polish #10This is Born Pretty Store Holo #10. Isn’t is beautiful? It’s a lovely cyan blue with scattered holo – and do you see how it pulls a little green on my thumb? Love it! This is 2 coats without a topcoat.

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. Which do you like best? born pretty store holo polish #10 stamped with QA62 fish matte top coatYou can expect to see some more fun with Born Pretty things in the next few weeks!

      Aw thank you! I literally sat there going I don’t know which to try first… I don’t know which to try first! I still really want a strong linear holo though.

      Yay haha 🙂 I seriously didn’t know what to play with first! Well then I am glad I tried it mattifed as well. After doing this I played with some water decals and now I have their pastel studs on my nails 😀

          Yeah, I’ve only tested a couple of the plates so far, but they stamp perfectly! Love them 🙂
