Review of Born Pretty Odorless Fast Dry Top Coat

Today’s review is on Born Pretty’s Odorless Fast Dry Top Coat. Typically when a company says that their polish is odorless, it tends to be water based. I’m still not sure how a water based top coat doesn’t wash off, but it’s one of those mysteries that I’m not going to question.

This top coat is strangely not clear and looks a little milky in the bottle. If you paint it on too thick, you will notice that the color of your polish will don a slightly foggy appearance. However, this polish is true to its word where it has no harsh odor. The formula is on the thinner side which I like because it dries faster that way.

Review of Born Pretty Glitter Thermal Polish in BP-GT05 Cerulean Stars

Today we’re going to look at a thermal crelly polish from Born Pretty from the same Glitter Thermal collection that the color Cloud of Purple Sky came from. Today’s color, Cerulean Stars, is a beautiful light blue when cold and turns into a mostly clear jelly with glitter when warm.

This small 6 mL bottle doesn’t include a mixing ball, so it’s a little hard to make sure the formula is agitated thoroughly.

Cherry Blossom Nails

I love seeing all the flowering trees in the spring! NY has only started seeing cherry blossoms come out because of our crazy long winter this year, so this manicure was inspired by their beauty.

I started by painting my nails with Born Pretty’s BP-GT05 Cerulean Stars glitter thermal polish. I applied 3 coats to try to get more opacity in the color as it is a pretty pale sky blue when cold and more glittery and clear when warm, but it’s still a very sheer shade.

Spring Lily Nails

It’s nice to see flowers beginning to bloom all over the place! There’s nothing like the beauty of nature to inspire some nail art.

For this lily manicure, I started by painting my nails a lovely sky blue color using polish from Aimeili. This color is 113 Strongylodon Macrobotrys, and I used 3 coats cured at 60 seconds per coat to achieve the nice opaque creme color you see here.

3 coats of 113 Strongylodon Macrobotrys were applied for this swatch.
