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.
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.
Today’s review is of a beautiful glitter gel polish from Aimeili, color 023 called Silver Glitter Explosion.
Like all of Aimeili’s polishes, the outer packaging is pretty much identical across the brand. The company uses the same boxes and bottles for all their colors. What differentiates each one is that there is a sticker on the back of the carton with an item specific barcode, and the top of handle of this bottle has a sticker with the number 023 printed on a background that resembles silver glitter so you can identify the color. For this reason, I would store these polishes outside of the cartons in a container where you can see the tops of the bottles easily.
Aimeili includes an instruction and tips leaflet inside the box, which I have scanned here for your perusal. It contains super helpful information on making your manicure last and how to remove gel polish properly, so I suggest that you read it, especially if you are just starting to use gel polishes.
We’ve had little bits of snow here and there in NYC, although it melts not long after it falls. It’s proved to be the inspiration for this pretty snowflake tipped manicure.
I started by painting my nails with a silver and holo glitter gel polish from Aimeili called Silver Glitter Explosion (#023). It applies mostly clear and looks like fairy dust thanks to the sparkling glitter pieces. I used 3 coats for this manicure to get the coverage shown below.
Today I’m going to introduce you to some pretty microbeads that I found on the Born Pretty website. They are super pretty because of their pearlescent rainbow AB finish and look like tiny bubbles!
Today I’m reviewing a water based clear polish from Born Pretty Store. If you’ve ever worked with nail foils, you will know that people swear by water based top coats to finish off their manicure. Foils are known to shrink and crack when virtually any top coat is applied, ruining their beautiful finish, so I jumped at the chance to get this product when I heard the words “water based” in the formula because I was curious to see just how effective it would be.
This must be their generic box because the list looks identical to the one they use with their other polishes.
As for the formula, it’s clear and on the thinner side but not runny. It smells a little bit like a mix of ammonia and some sort of cleaner, although I can’t put my finger which one. It comes in a 9 mL cylindrical bottle with a good sized flexible brush that can easily paint most nails in 1-2 strokes.
