Born Pretty Store Review: Black Matte Polish + Silver Studs;

hi :)

a few weeks ago, Nicole of Born Pretty Store offered me to review a few more items from one of the best online nail art supply stores -- of course i gladly accepted :P


the two items i chose to review were the 1.5mm Silver Studs and the Black Matte Polish.

here is the mani i came up with--


black matte w/ zebra stripes & silver studs .. and then a reverse of matte zebra stripes on the ring finger.

the matte nail polish was amazing. it took two coats for me since i didnt expect the matte polish to be as awesome as it is. so if you apply the first coat properly, one coat would do. the silver studs were much smaller than i expected (they look bigger in the picture than they really are) but it looked perfect for the mani. there are soooo many studs in the bag, it is definitely more than enough. and to make things more convenient, the bag has a zip at the top so you can close it back off. then i just took regular top coat and did the zebra stripes.

overall, i am super impressed with the items. they worked beautifully and the price really cant be beat! check out Born Pretty Store for more awesome nail art supplies. don't forget, if you want to order anything from BPS, you are always more than welcomed to use my coupon code and save 7% off your order! yes - Nicole kindly bumped up my 5% discount to 7% .. so feel free to take advantage of it! :D the code is 'KL5X31' and it is good until September 6, 2012.

once again, a big thanks to Nicole of Born Pretty Store for the wonderful items :)

have a great day,

  4. Amazing!! How did you do the zebra stripes? Did you freehand them or stamp them with top coat? I've been dying to try this with matte polish!!

    Love your blog!!
