I’m sure by now you’ve noticed that I’ve been loving the Born Pretty Store stamping polishes recently. Today I have another one to share with you – stamping polish #12, which is a gorgeous bright green. I’ve done two different looks with this one, so be sure to make it to the end of the post!
Firstly I decided to try some tone-on-tone stamping with a green base under the green stamping. I’ve seen a lot of tone-on-tone manicures on Manis & Makeovers recently and I’m always loving them – I haven’t always had the most success with this in the past but I decided to try it again and I’m glad I did!
I really loved this because it wasn’t very in-your-face but a closer look at my nails and you could see this amazing pattern! As for the stamping polish – as you can see, it stamped beautifully, and I had no trouble picking up or transferring the colour.
As usual, I always like to try a new stamping polish over a dark base to see if it’s really good and opaque.
I used another Darling Diva polish as the base here, The Huntress, from their recent Watch Your Pack collection.
I decided to combine two different patterns here, so I used the leaves from plate BPL-008 (reviewed here) and the other pattern from plate BPL-027 (reviewed here) along with the green stamping polish. Clearly I am loving my Born Pretty stamping plates lately as well! This time you can see a couple of small gaps in the stamp, but nothing too major. The most are in the leaf image and I have always had more trouble with that type of image with larger areas on it. To me this stamping polish performed well and I really like the vibrant colour.
So, what do you think? Have you tried any Born Pretty Store stamping polishes yet? Did you like what I did with this one?
