Today I have a review of a Born Pretty Store stamping polish to share with you. I’ve reviewed a few from this line before and I’ve really liked them! This time, I have Born Pretty Store stamping polish #17 (watermelon). As usual, I’ve done two different looks to show you how the polish performs over both dark and light bases. I like my second look the best, so be sure to click through and see them both! I decided to try it over a darker base first. Here, I started with a base of Supermoon Boys for Breakfast and Lunch and then stamped using the watermelon stamping polish and Moyou plates Artist 03 and Back to the 80s 02.I found that the stamping polish appeared ever so slightly pinker over this dark blue base; but it did show up clearly and it looked like a party on my nails! Somehow this didn’t end up being the most crisp stamping ever; I’m not sure if that was the fault of the polish or just me doing a lousy stamping job. Either way, it showed up well over the darker base and did make for a fun nail art look. Boys for Breakfast and Lunch really is a gorgeous polish – I’ll be sharing swatches with you soon! For my second look, I went with a really cute stamping image over a pale grey. I started with a base of Lollipop Posse Lacquer Glittery Gray Matter. On top of that, I stamped using the watermelon stamping polish and a really cute image consisting of sweets, flowers, bicycles and letters from plate BP-X04.I love this one! It is so cute and I was sorry to take it off as quickly as I did (blogger problems!). The stamping polish definitely retained more of its watermelon shade over the lighter base and it also did better with the finer lines of this image. Isn’t this such a cute nail art?What do you think of these two looks? I definitely liked the second one best!
