I love polishes that have a color so fascinating that you can’t stop staring at your nails. This thermal gel polish from Born Pretty will definitely have you looking at it all day long!
Because it is a gel polish, the outside of the bottle is opaque to keep the polish from inadvertently curing inside the container. You can always swatch a sticker with the polish and place it on the top of the bottle so you know what the color is inside, but it’s helpful that Born Pretty shaded the bottle with a gradient tint to nod at the color changing ability of the thermal polish.
The back of the bottle lists the ingredients and alludes to an instruction paper, but no paper is attached to the bottle or shipped with the item.
The bottle shape is easy to hold and contains 10 mL of polish which is a normal size when it comes to gel polishes. The brush is neither too wide nor too narrow and has flexible bristles so it is easy to control.

It also has the perfect sprinkling of two different sized glitters in the formula which truly makes it look more special.
I applied and cured this polish for about 1 minute and repeated the process for a second coat.
My next step was to create a sandy beach line along the half moon area of my nails. Continue reading →
