Review: BPS Turquoise Stamping Polish

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

Hi everyone!

If you saw my post last week you’ll be glad to know that I am doing a lot better and I’m back to work today. I also have a new post to share with you! If you’re following me on Snapchat, you would have seen the fun nail art package I recently got from Born Pretty Store (and if not – my snapcode is in the sidebar!). The package included a turquoise stamping polish which I will be sharing with you today. Painted Fingertips| Floral stamping over black

The first test of a good stamping polish is opacity – how well does it stamp over a dark colour? That is the first thing I decided to try with 15ml Born Pretty Nail Art Stamping Polish in turquoise (#18). I started with a base of Elevation Fireflies in a Dark Meadow, which is a black base filled with flakies.Painted Fingertips| Floral stamping over black

I stamped over it using the turquoise stamping polish and Born Pretty Store stamping plate BPL-029. As you can see, it stamped beautifully! The turquoise was perfectly opaque and showed up vibrantly over the darker base.

I was really happy with this and I loved this manicure! I decided to do a second look as well, to show you how it stamps over a lighter shade.

For this look, I started with a base of Elevation Walk a Little Farther and added the gold leaf with Elevation Hidden Falls. Again, I stamped using the BPS turquoise stamping polish, and this time I used Moyou plate Suki Collection 04 for the image.

I was really happy with this stamping polish. I don’t have many specific stamping polishes and working with this one was a dream. I’ll definitely be going back to see what other colours I want! Painted Fingertips | Asa no ha stamping turquoise over gold leaf and pastel base

If you’d like to try this stamping polish, it’s available here: 15ml Born Pretty Nail Art Stamping Polish.

What do you think of these two looks? Which do you like best? I’m leaning towards the first one, although I liked them both!

    That last mani is so springy & perfect! It’s drizzling & grey here today so I’m yearning for bright spring days.

      Thanks! It’s overcast here today too, but last week was beautiful.

    Both look great but I prefer it over black.
    I haven’t tried any of their stamping polishes. Canada Post is so fussy about mailing polish lately and they even opened my last US order at the border to ensure it was the correct kind of polish, I doubt BP will have all the necessary codes showing

      Oh man, that’s too bad. I’m from South Africa and I was always nervous about buying polish. The couple of times I had a polish in a BPS order I did get it, though – not that that means much for you 😉
      I’m in the US for a while now and it does feel like a pretty privileged place to live in terms of the nail polish world!

    Both manis look great. I have only used Konad stamping polish in black and white so far and both mine are running empty and I have been wondering which one to try next. I think you just answered that question for me!

      Thanks! I’ve never used Konad so I can’t compare them, but I really liked this one!

    Ohh, both of these manicures are gorgeous!! The color of the stamping polish is beautiful!

    I like the second mani best colour-wise only! I love my BPS stamping polishes, they are awesome over darker shades!

    • http://paintedfingertips.com/ Painted Fingertips

      Thanks, that’s why I tried to do two in totally different colour schemes 🙂

    I love both nail designs and the fact that in both cases under the stamped patterns it appears a little sparkle!

  • Naked Without Polish

    I am loving both these manis!
