Born Pretty Store Stamping Plate Review

*Press Sample*


Hey guys!  I have a quick review of a Born Pretty Store stamping plate for you today.  I started with a base of Essie Mojito Madness and stamped an image from plate QA87 using Rica Gloomy Sunday.  I didn't have any issues with this plate.  I stamped several of the images on a piece of paper and they all picked up very well.


I love gray and green together but this mani was hard to photograph.  The gray was much easier to see in person.  Born Pretty Store has a ton of great nail art products.  Click here to see the plate I used.  Also, don't forget to use code FEMJ61 to save 10% on regular priced purchases.

Have a great day!

Dragon Claw Polish Review

*Press Sample*


Good morning everyone!  Today I have a few polishes from a brand new indie line to show you.  Dragon Claw Polish is 5 free and cruelty free indie line that will be launching November 7th will three fun collections.  Today I have one polishes from each of the premier collections.  I was also sent a mini bottle of Dragon Claw's quick dry top coat, Diamond Claw.  I used it with all the polishes.  I'll give you my findings at the end.   Oh and I'm trying out macro shots again.  Let me know what you think.  I will master these someday.

First up is Ant Venom from the Ick Made Pretty collection.  This is an orchid/purple chrome polish.  Two coats made it opaque and it applied very well.  I had zero issues with the formula and application.

Up next is Chewy Rainbow Bands from the Toys Everywhere! collection.  This is based of the Rainbow Loom Bands that Janet's, the lady behind the brand, little one is always finding and chewing on.  This is a pink jelly with different sized and color glitters in it.  When I tried this on it's own I still had visible nail lines (vnl) at four coats so I decided to layer it over a bright pink cream, Rica Pinky Promise.  I applied two coats of Chewy Rainbow Bands.  I struggled to get the blue and yellow glitters out.  I had to get them on the neck of the bottle and then fish them out with the brush and put them on the nail.  The final look is great it just took a bit of work.

Finally we have my favorite of the bunch.  This is Bren from the Girls of Famous Asian collection.  So much pretty here!  This is the perfect denim blue polish.  I used there coats to make it perfectly even and opaque.  I wore this one for a few days I loved it so much.

I topped all these polishes with Diamond Claw quick dry top coat.  I'm pretty impressed.  Within a few minutes my nails were touchable.  At the 15 minute mark I was pretty good to go.  I could dent the polish if I dug in the edge of another nail but was able to do things.

Don't forget these and many others are releasing on November 7th.  Have a great day!

Born Pretty Store Nail Studs

*Press Sample*


Hello!  Today's post is a review of these pretty nails studs from Born Pretty Store.  The ones I picked are brightly colored stars and circles.  I started with a base of China Glaze Aquadelic, which was one of my favorite polishes ever but the color seems to have changed.  It's not as bright as it used to be.  Sad!  Then I used tweezers to pick up the studs and place them on the nail.  I went with some random patterns so you could see all the colors they came in.


The studs are easy to use and stayed put nicely.  My only real complaint is in the package they got a bit mixed together in transit.  Born Pretty Store has tons of great, affordable nail art options.  The studs I used are here.  Remember code FEMJ61 will save you 10% on your regular priced purchase.

Have a great night!
