Review: Born Pretty Store Rhinestones

*press sample*
Hello lovelies!

A couple months ago I was kindly contacted by Born Pretty Store to review a few products of my choice! I had been eyeing some studs so I happily accepted! Here are a couple of quick and easy looks that I did!




The blinged out accent finger is something I had wanted to do for a long time but didn't have the rhinestones to do it! I used Zoya Aurora for the base coat on these and used a pair of nail art tweezers to set each rhinestone where I wanted. I was impressed with how well these stayed on!

I love that that the first set of rhinestones came with a whole rainbow of colors! I used the clear ones for this look but the options are endless when you have so many options! I chose the smallest size which is 1.5mm.You can purchase the same wheel by clicking here.

The 2nd set of rhinestones I purchased are the swarovski style and they really are what makes the nail so blingy! These are the 2.5mm size but I really want to add some smaller ones to my collection as well. Although it only came with 20, these can easily be reused! You can get these by clicking here.

If you place an order be sure to use code WBX31 for 10% off!

I have a couple more fun nail art goodies to share with you so keep a look out!

I Love Nail Polish Army Surplus

Hello lovelies!

I hope the month is treating you well! We have been super lucky in the Pacific Northwest, we have had so much sun! The last month has been ridiculous especially since this time of the year generally means lots of rain. We had some rain over the weekend which was actually really nice and the sun appears to be back again, yay!

Anyways I just wanted to pop in real quick and share this awesome polish from I Love Nail Polish! Army Surplus is described as:

an amazing army / forest green colored holographic nail polish. It's like a sparkle grenade went off in here!





Shown is 2 coats of Army Surplus over Duri Rejuvacote and topped with HK Girl. Application was great! The holo in this is not super super strong but definitely still has a visible linear shift. The only downside is that this color seems to have been discontinued! ILNP has a great lineup of holos but I really think this was a unique one that should have stuck around! I am so glad that I got my hands on it while I could!

Color Club Twiggie

*purchased by me*
Hello lovelies!

It's that time again where I get to show you an awesome nail polish! I don't own many colors from Color Club, as a matter of fact this is the only one I own aside from a few of their holos! I had my eye on Twiggie for months so when I saw it in a blog sale (hence the bottom sticker) I had to swoop it up!

Color Club Twiggie is described as a "retro shade of green". There is so much win in this color for me! I think it could be considered a mint green and it's also nearly neon! Check it out!





Shown is 2 coats of Twiggie over Duri Rejuvacote and topped with HK Girl. I read some reviews that said the formula was bad, but I had no issues at all! There was no streaking and two thin coats was perfect! I fell in love instantly and got tons of comments on this polish, it's a hard one to overlook!

What are some of your favorite Color Club colors? Thanks for stopping by!
