Something to Remember

Like Rathy mentioned in her previous post, we were sent some beautiful polishes from Il Etait Un Vernis to try. The formula for these were absolutely excellent and a charm to work with. I think my favorite of the bunch would have to be Something To Remember. I love this mauve-y purple color, and thought it would look perfect with a little accent of gold. I tried some nail stamping for the first time using Born Pretty’s stamping plate item #17266.

Little Mermaid

For today’s nail art, I decided to start off with a base of the beautiful piCture pOlish Lagoon. It is a beautiful glitter/scatter holo mix suspended in turquoise. I love the depth of the glitter in this polish, the hex glitters add such a nice touch! It’s like little bubbles in the water. ^_^

To compliment this polish, I decided to paint the Little Mermaid and her buddy Flounder on top. I used some rhinestones from the bornprettystore (#7300). The package came with a number of colors but for this look I only used the dark blue as little bubbles. :)

My accent nail is decorated with these adorable multi-colored rhinestones from the Born Pretty Store (Item ##14483). If you use DGG10, you get 10% your Born Pretty Store purchase! ^_^

Techy Grids and Gold Tips

As Daisy mentioned, Allison of Born Pretty sent us some items to review. This time around, I’ll be showing off a stamped look using their stamping tool and one of the plates that they carry. Just a note though, this is actually my first time attempting to stamp on my nails so I had a few hit and misses as I was learning how to use the tool. The idea is simple, it just takes a bit of practice to use.

The 2 piece Practical Nail Stamper and Scraper is item #15851, and the Nail Stamp Template I used is QA97 which is item #15613. More information available on their product pages. You can’t go wrong with the prices either because each of these are definitely affordable. But if you like a sweeter deal, you can get 10% off using our coupon code DGG10 at Born Pretty Store.

So there’s several designs on the plate. I attempted to try the cherries, but either the polish consistency wasn’t right or my technique just wasn’t working. I couldn’t get the cherries design onto my stamper. I then decided to move to the other grid-like design with a gold polish that I know works well. I managed to not have too many mess ups, but it takes a few tries. Overall the product does what it’s supposed to and I like having fun design options without freehanding everything.

Multicolor Rhinestones & Stripes

The wonderful Allison of Born Pretty sent us a few nail art items for review and we will be sharing them in a few separate posts. The first item up for review are the rhinestones (Item #15228). If you use the offer code DGG10, you’ll get 10% off at the born pretty store! How awesome is that? ;)

These are super cute multi color rhinestones, at about 1-2mm in diameter. In different angles, the rhinestones change from a bright green and yellow to a lovely pink and bronze. I loved the small size as well as the shift in the color. I thought that these were a perfect addition to my accent nails and my nails still looked classy and practical. I personally like to keep the amount of 3D decorations on my nail minimal. Just a little here and there can make a huge difference, no need to go overboard.

I have a few more ideas in mind for how I would like to use these. Here is one look using grays and small pops of color to balance out the colors in the rhinestones.

Placing the rhinestones: I applied a layer of top coat, then used tweezers to place them. You might want to apply a 2nd layer of top coat after placing the rhinestones to seal them in.
