Today I have a review of some French Tip Guides kindly sent to me from Born Pretty.
Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and Tip Guides from Born Pretty Store
For this I used Deborah Lippmann Modern Love, Rimmel Space Dust Aurora and of course the Tip Guides!
These guides are really good quality, just sticky enough to adhere nicely to the nail with out being so sticky they take off the polish underneath. I decided to really test them by using the guides over the textured glitter polish… Amazingly there was no polish bleeding under the tape!

You can find the guides I used here Born Pretty Tip Guides
I decided on some neutral colors as I’ve been using so many dark and metallic polishes lately I really needed a change!

Silver and Black Stamped Gradient
Today I have a Born Pretty stamping plate that has kindly been sent to me for review!
You can find BP-05 plate here!
Plate BP-05 has a really eclectic bunch of images! That Owl is really cute, and I really like the vine and leaf patterns.
My first impression of the images is that the etching looks really sharp and quite deep! unlike some other plates in the same price range.
The smaller full nail images are (with the help of my ruler) 19mm by 15mm and the larger image (at the top) is 23mm by 15mm.
The plate is 55mm across, so the plate is the same size as BM plates.
The Back of the plate has a durable paper backing.
And the edge of the plate has been finished really nicely. Its not sharp at all! For me this is actually really important, I’m forever accidentally cutting or scratching my fingertips on the sharp edges of plates! 😦
China Glaze I’d Melt For You and Laval Black
I decided to try out the swirly vine pattern from this plate, partly because I think it’s a really pretty image and partly because it’s a bold design that wouldn’t loose too much detail over the gradient.
And the gradient is because my nails are longer than the stamp image… Oops! 😀
I used China Glaze I’d Melt For You and Laval Black for the gradient, this mani looks really thick, because for some reason my sponge decided to disintegrate a bit on the last coat and left annoying sponge turds all over the place Gah! So after a bit of tweezering some swearing and around 3 coats of Seche Vite later my nails where ready for stamping.
I used some more I’d Melt For You for the stamping along with my squishy marshmallow stamp head. The image itself is really sharp and it transferred to my nails really cleanly. one final coat of topcoat and it was all done! 🙂
And don’t forget the code RPG10 will get you 10% off in the born pretty shop!
