Review – Born Pretty Store Black Stamping Polish

Hi! Born Pretty Store have very kindly sent me a new bundle of items to review, and this is the first of them. Black stamping polish is a staple for anyone who likes to stamp their nails, so I was very interested to see how Born Pretty Store’s version works. I’ve tried a blue stamping polish of theirs before, and I wasn’t too impressed as it wasn’t very opaque. This one comes in a different shaped bottle, so I was hoping it would be better. Seeing as it’s October, I’ve come up with a couple of Halloween themed designs to test it!

Items in this article were provided free of charge for review purposes, however, all views given are my own honest and unbiased opinions.

Pumpkins

Every nail artist has to do at least one pumpkin mani at Halloween, I think it’s the law or something!

I’m definitely impressed with this stamping polish! My pumpkins came out crisp and clear, and the black was opaque and covered the bright orange well. Also, there was minimal smearing when I added topcoat, and it cleaned up well from around my cuticles. My current black stamping polish (MoYou London Black Knight) is a nightmare to clean up as it sort of dissolves in the acetone and leaves black specks everywhere.

For this look I started with two coats of Galifrey Lost, then dry brushed on a few other purple polishes. It made a nice effect, which I then promptly obliterated by adding a coat of glitter topper. *sigh*

The small black cats are from BPL-025, and the large single cat from HK-11.

Again, the image was sharp, clear and opaque, and clean up was easy. Very little smearing when I added topcoat.
