january challenge: sparkles

Hey everyone!
It's time for the second theme of my January Challenge and today's theme is Sparkles.
I'm a really big fan of glitter and rhinestones, but today I just wanted to go with a subtle version of sparkles (if it's possible to say that). 

I had a polish that BornPrettyStore sent me for review and I've been dying to use it. Born Pretty Holo 9 is a lavender holographic nail polish. I already have one of Born Pretty's holographic polishes and they are amazing. This one is a bit on the sheer side, but you can actually get away with 2 coats, if you don't mind the slightly visible nail line. If you do, it's great for layering over a similar base.
The price to amount ratio is a bit off, I will admit. But, for me, the beauty of the polish really makes up for the fact that it's a bit pricey.

You can get it yourself on the following link: BornPretty Holo 9 ($12.88 for 6ml).


For this manicure I used the following products:
BornPretty Holo 9 (holographic lavender)
• Golden Rose Color Expert 02 (white)
• Golden Rose Matte 12 (black)
• Flormar 112 (silver)
BornPretty Stamping Plate L002
• Caviar beads

Here's a flash photo to see the holographic-ness of the polish :)


And a shot in the sun, which was barely visible today.


Considering the stamping plate, I love the fact that it has a variety of designs you can choose from. I'm really into the advanced stamping, where you stamp and fill in the lines, and this stamping plate gives you the opportunity to do that. The lines come up very clean. The lines aren't too thin, but not to thick either. In my opinion, it works best for medium to long sized nails, as the designs are quite large.
You can check it out on the following link: BornPretty Stamping Plate L002 ($5.99)

Thanks for reading!

One of the products in this post was sponsored by BornPrettyStore, while the other was purchased by myself. However, my opinion is always 100% honest.
