Review: Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate BP-156

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

Hi everyone!

I’m back to finish off the week with one more Born Pretty Store product review. This time it is for a stamping plate that is perfect for Autumn – plate BP-156. This is a small round plate with 4 different leafy designs. I have actually used this same plate for the Fall look I shared with you earlier this week. Today I have manicures using 2 more of the designs on the plate – so there is just one more gorgeous leafy pattern on the plate that I haven’t tried yet.

Hi everyone!

It’s day 2 of the Digital Dozen does Rainforests and today I have one of my favourite looks of the week to share with you (although my absolute favourite is still coming up on Friday!). I’ve combined some stamping and freehand to create a pretty butterfly nail art.

Review: Leaves from Born Pretty Store plate Floral BPX-L018

Hi everyone!

Today I’m reviewing another Born Pretty Store stamping plate, as usual with two different nail art looks. These are really pretty so make sure you click through and scroll down to see both of them! Both were created with plate Floral BPX-L018. This plate even has ‘floral’ in its name, but it actually consists mostly of leafy images. It will be an amazing plate to use for autumn manicures, but I’ve managed to create 2 looks that are more springy for today.

Hi everyone!

It’s a gorgeous autumn here in Minnesota – the trees are all changing beautifully and it isn’t TOO cold yet. Leaves of every colour are beginning to fall and that’s the part of the autumn I’ve decided to recreate on my nails. Painted Fingertips | Autumn leaf nail art

#31DC2016 Day 21: Inspired by Autumn Colours

Purchased using PR discount.

Hi everyone!

We’re into the final section of the 31 Day Challenge! All the rest of the themes are ‘inspired by’ something and today’s is inspired by a colour. The beginnings of autumn have definitely arrived here in Minnesota and a few of the trees are beginning to change. It seems like this year I’ve caught the fall bug, too. I love summer, but I’ve found myself drawn to browns and bronzes recently. In the Voxbox I received from Influenster a few weeks ago, I got a bottle of Seche Intrepid and also a coupon to get a second colour with the purchase of a bottle of Seche Vite. Seche Vite is a great top coat, so of course I took advantage of it. The colour I decided to pick was the perfectly autumny Seche Whimsical.

12 Days of Christmas: Any line from the ’12 Days’ song

Hi everyone!

I’m sure most of you know the ’12 Days of Christmas’ song.

On the first day of Christmas, my true love gave to me:
A partridge in a pear tree.

The song goes on for 12 days of Christmas with 12 different gifts (e.g. 2 turtle doves, 5 golden rings, 12 drummers drumming). The idea of today’s prompt was to take one of the gifts from the song and translate it into nail art. I decided to ‘cheat’ by instead using the line ‘On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me’. For our first Christmas together, my true love gave me a beautiful summer dress with a leaf print pattern. I decided to do matching nails:Painted Fingertips | Leaf print nails (inspired by a dress) (more…)
