Born Pretty Store BK Review + Nail Art

I wasn't going to do a post this week because I have so much work to do, but when I received these polishes in the post from Born Pretty Store I knew I wanted to create some nail art along with the review. The products I received were #13 and #16 from these polishes. All swatches are without topcoat. More photos after the jump!

First up is #16 (unfortunately these dont have names, only numbers) which is your typical red, the red I'd previously been using was more jelly-like and I'm glad to have received this one as it's a lot more opaque, this will definitely be my go-to red from now on. In this photo I used 2 coats, but I could probably have got away with just the one (it really is the perfect red). The polish also wasn't as thick as I thought it would be, I'd say it was what I'd consider "normal" consistency and for the opacity you get that's definitely a good thing!

The second polish is #13 which is a lovely pink. and although I have tons of pinks in my collection this is actually completely different to all I own, I wasn't expecting it to be because it seems pretty generic but it it's a really lovely shade, I struggled to capture it properly in the pictures. Again I used 2 coats for full opacity. 

Remember you can use my code KHL91 to get 10% off these polishes, which are $2.95 each with free shipping!

I decided to create some nail art with #13 and when looking through my 'to do' list I decided it would be a good time to recreate my 'Inspired by fashion' nails from the 31 day nail art challenge which I've been meaning to do in pink for a while. What do you think?

Hope you like them! Alice

  7. Now why I never joined your blog before is beyond me! Great job on this one! : D

  8. I just discovered your blog (Kayla Shevonne featured you on facebook) and spent ages looking at all your older posts! Love your work!!

  9. How do you make your nails matte?? I really like that.

  10. Awesome colors and manicure (:
    Do you want to follow eachother?

  11. I'm 14 years old and I just started my own nail art blog. You're very inspirational for me and I just LOOOOOOVE to watch all your designs! I really like the fact that almost all your manicures are matte, it's gorgeous! I would be very happy if you could visit my blog maybe? xxxx

  12. Oh my gosh, this is crazy! It's the first time I've checked out your blog, which I came to because I realized I pin a lot of your photos on Pinterest & I was searching for inspiration to use a nail polish I bought last night that looks just like the #13 polish you used in this manicure! I never would have thought about using it with black&white. I'm in love with this-I'm a sucker for stripes, especially in black&white! I usually just look for inspiration & then come up with my own version of something but it's very tempting to do this exact design. Playing around and creating my own designs is what I love to spend my time doing though! Who knows.... in the end, I may not be happy with anything I come up with after seeing something that is so fitting for me!


I absolutely love to read all your comments, they make my day! So please do not hesitate to tell me what you think, but I ask that you don't link spam to your blog in your comment, thankyou so much everyone!
