Born Pretty Store Review: Round Glitters

For those who are in Southern Ontario, I hope you enjoy the oh so wonderful snow. We hardly had any snow all December and January, now, it all came at once. We got two months worth of snow today! Luckily for me, my boss called just when I was about to head out and told me to stay in. My first Snow Day from work! Anyways, on a brighter note, Born Pretty Store sent me two more products to test out, the glitter pots and nail art brushes! 

The glitter pots come in a package of 12 for $7.60 per package (about $0.63/pot). As always with most of their products in their online store,  if you buy a larger quantity, it drives the cost down per item. I truly believe this is best place to buy all your nail art needs because they have a huge variety at a very affordable price! I've been to a couple nail supply store and one pot of glitter cost about $1 and it's usually half full.

The 12 glitter pots come in silver, yellow, hot pink, lime green, orange, white, blue, black, purple, dark green, gold, and red. You can use them for accent nails, nail art decoration, and anything you can imagine. You can use with as a solid color, or create a mixture of colours. They're pretty fun to play with! 

What I like about these glitter pot package is the variety of colours it came with. So there are a lot of way you can incorporate these glitters into your nail art. However, the downside of these glitter is that most of the glitters are too translucent for my liking, so you need to find a way to layer the glitter so that the colours shows. The only colours that work best without layering is the gold and black glitter.  Most of these glitter work best with a clear or white base.

Here's an example of how I used these glitter pots. I used a clear base coat and dipped my finger nails into the pot to have glitter stick on. Then I used two layers of top coat to seal the glitter in. While the top coat is still wet, I used a tooth pick to flatten and shape the glitter so it is within my nail bed. This reminds me of fish scales!

  1. We're hunkering down in the snow in S. Ont today, which makes for a wonderful opportunity to play with nail polish ;) I love your fish scale look! I think circle glitter is going to be the next big "finish" in polish :)

    1. Haha that would be interesting. Maybe "fish scaling" will be the next big trend.

  2. They do remind me of fishscales, or like a mermaid tail! So pretty and unique.

  3. Very pretty! I like this look!
