Born Pretty Store Round Glitter Sheets

2:48 PM

The wonderful ladies at Born Pretty Store asked me to review a couple more products from them. I jumped on the chance. I had so much fun reviewing the first product they sent me, of course I want to do it again. It is getting me out there playing with other mediums and getting me more comfortable with doing nail art with 3D/2D items. Normally I just paint and do an accent nail, but I'm really having fun with these other objects.

I received these right before I went out of town for the most part of 3 weeks around Christmas. So when we got back I started playing with them. I hadn't used them before and wanted to get comfortable placing them and working with them before I jumped in for my review. I just wanted to start simple. If you're a follower of my blog, you know I keep things simple. It wouldn't be me if I practiced for a few days then came here and had this elaborate nail art.

Onto the product! This first one I picked has the LONGEST name. haha So be prepared... 12 Color Nail Art Round Shiny Glitter Powder Sheets Tips Tool Manicure. Or you could go the easy route and just use Item No: 4624. When I opened my package and saw them, I just smiled. I wasn't sure exactly what to expect with a name like that, but I was extremely pleased with my first look. 12 different colors of shiny round paper thin pieces of glitter. They are on the bigger side, so from here on out I'm going to call them glequins (glitter + sequins = glequins... YES I went there. LOL).

After playing around I knew I wanted to use multiple colors in my review, so here is what I finally decided on...

Essence - Colour & Go - Date in the Moonlight, Rescue Beauty - Bruised and the red and blue "glequins".

Bottle shots! Date in the Moonlight is a beautiful navy with flecks of blue shimmer and Bruised is a gorgeous brown based plum. (It's the perfect color of a fallen, crisp autumn leaf.)

Close up shot of the "glequins". You can see how sheer they really are, but there is a definite red and a definite blue tint then there's the iridescence that they both share. Each one of the 12 "glequins" has that same gorgeous iridescence. So much fun!

This is what I ended up doing.

I used Date in the Moonlight on my pinky, pointer and thumb and Bruised on my ring and middle. I added red "glequins" on Date in the moonlight and blue "glequins" on Bruised.

You can really see the shimmer in Date in the Moonlight in this picture.

I started by doing one coat of each color on my nails. After the first coat dried, I did one nails at a time. I painted the nail with a second coat and then started applying the "glequins" one by one. I did this finger by finger until they were all done. I chose not to use a top coat because I was afraid it would take away from the iridescence in the "glequins". I will try it with a top coat on the next time around and see what it does. 

I really liked how this turned out. It's not perfect, I'm still working on perfecting the application trying to get them straight and even. Since they are on the sheer side, their tinted color doesn't show through as much as I would have liked once placed over a color. The iridescent glow they give off is so eye catching! 

I had so much fun with these! They weren't difficult to work with and it wasn't time consuming like I thought they would be. If you're wanting to get into nail art, but don't feel you're all that great with a striping brush or just want to start small, this is the way to do it! You can find them on the Born Pretty Store (along with SOOOOOO many other goodies you can play around with) item code 4624 or use the direct link: The 12 pots cost $7.60 AND the Born Pretty Store has free shipping. What's even better, is I have a code for 10% off for you all to use!! (A little secret...if 10 people use the code then they will sponsor a giveaway!!) Use the code EQL91 to get 10% off any order. 

Happy Polishing!!
