Review of Born Pretty BP-MA04 Greenland Night Magnetic Polish

I was lucky enough to receive an invitation to preview of one of the new Born Pretty polishes that will be released to the public on June 6. Let’s take a closer look!

Born Pretty has been seriously upping their package game as of late. Their branding has become more sophisticated and elegant looking over time. The bottle of polish is inside a cream colored box with gold foil text which complements the colors of their website design.

Front and back views of the exterior box. The ingredients are listed on the back.

What I noticed right away about the bottle itself was the classy gold ring running along the base of the cap which instantly makes it look more high end. All the text is printed in gold. The bottle contains 6 mL of polish, but this information is only printed on the box and not on the bottle itself.

BP-MA04 Greenland Night Magnetic Nail Lacquer from Born Pretty is a dark plum color with blue and red microglitters.

The bottom of the bottle is labeled with a mini bar code and the name of the series and color of the polish. It should be noted that this sticker is also affixed to the box in which it came.

Despite the small size of the bottle, the brush is a normal size. I love it for its flexibility as it allows the lacquer to be applied smoothly.

The polish itself is a nice consistency that runs a little on the thinner side. This allows for it to be mixed better when the bottle is shaken, so no mixing ball is included. It also makes painting your nails much easier as the finish will look smoother once the polish is dry.

The first coat of polish is a little on the sheer side, but you can really see the microglitters in this picture. It dries moderately fast, which is good because you don’t want to have to be in a hurry to apply your magnetic force in the next step.

One coat of Greenland Night applied over base coat and natural nails.

Of course this polish looks the best when you realize the magnetic effect! After applying a generous coat of polish over one nail at a time, I immediately held a cat eye magnet at a diagonal angle over the nail while the polish was still wet so the magnet could work its magic. Imagine my delight when I saw this stunning galaxy effect!

The magnetic effect of Greenland Night with a cat eye magnet held over it looks like photographs of outer space!

What I especially love is that the effect shifts in the light. The polish itself is not that dark when viewed under bright lights, but somehow the shimmer shifts its placement when you move your hand. This makes the polish look multi-dimensional.

Notice how the placement of the diagonal streaks are lower in this picture compared to the previous photo. Also the colors of my index and pinky fingers look completely different compared to before, but this is all due to different angles in comparison to my light source.

I was completely blown away by how stunning this polish turned out. I’ve never been a huge fan of magnetic lacquers, but after trying this one, I can’t wait to see what the other color options for this collection are!

Diamond rating: ♦♦♦♦♦ (5/5)
