Born Pretty Store Swatch and Review

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of some items sent to me by Born Pretty Store. Let's get started!

First, we have the Born Pretty Store Holographic Nail Varnish #8 - a medium blue holo. The formula was smooth and self-leveling without streaking or balding. This polish is mostly opaque in two coats with only a little VNL. I ended up using three coats, resulting in no VNL at all! The holographic effect of this polish was beautifully strong without graying out the blue base color in the shade, like some other holos tend to do. I'd definitely recommend this polish - I can't wait to try more shades! Shown below are pictures of the polish in both direct and indirect lighting.

Next, I have some lovely water decals. This was the first time I had ever used decals and I am so pleased to say that they are delightfully fun and easy to use. They make nail art a snap - which is great for people like me who are awful at free-handing anything more than a simple flower :) I used my water decals as an accent on my ring finger over Essie The More The Merrier.

Finally, I have a seriously cute nail charm to show you - yet another product I've never tried before. These bow charms came in a pack of 10 and are so glittery and gorgeous! They curve in a way that fits very well to my curved nail shape.  I'm super impressed with these beautiful charms. Shown below is one nail charm on my ring finger as an accent with Zoya Jolene and Essie Set In Stones.
