Review of Born Pretty 3D Chameleon Magnetic Aurora Series

If you follow me on Instagram¬†or Facebook, I’m sure you must have seen pictures of my swatches of Born Pretty’s collection of chameleon magnetic polishes. There are 6 colors in this “Magnetic Aurora” series that span the spectrum from magenta pink, coppery bronze, teal, to purple, and they’re all gorgeous!

Top row (L to R): BP-MA01 Astral Realm, BP-MA02 Lightning, BP-MA03 The Gravity (rebranded The Summit). Bottom row (L to R): BP-MA04 Greenland Night (rebranded Night Imply), BP-MA05 Fairbanks Arts (rebranded An Art), BP-MA06 Aurora Borealis.

Each of these elegant boxes is wrapped in plastic wrap, and a label on the side of the box shows the item number and the name of the color.

The reverse side lists the ingredients, although this part of the packaging remains the same across all Born Pretty polishes.

What these polishes are known for are their multi-toned chameleon effect in addition to their reactivity to strong magnets. When magnets are applied over the wet polish, stunning 3D color shifts can be achieved. Please note that regular refrigerator magnets are not meant to be used with this set and will not work with these polishes. There are plenty of nail art magnet styles out there that you can purchase that are compatible with these lacquers, so there are a lot of design possibilities.

Even in the bottle, you can see there are at least 2 tones to each polish depending on how the light hits the surface.

Review of Born Pretty Chameleon Pearl Stamping Polish Set

If you’ve ever ordered from Born Pretty, you know how long it can take to receive an order. It’s not unheard of to receive items in the mail that you totally forgot you bought because over a month has passed! But with Born Pretty’s US Warehouse, one can receive their order within a week, which is a pleasant surprise! They tend to have sets of items rather than listing each item individually, but the prices are still reasonable with the shipping still being free. And who knows, maybe you’ll end up loving everything in the set anyway!

This review focuses on their 6 piece chameleon pearl stamping polish set. Each box is wrapped in cellophane (not sure if this is a permanent change across the brand or if this is exclusive to US Warehouse products) so you know the item hasn’t been tampered with. Other than that, the packaging is identical to the polishes from the regular Born Pretty website. The cellophane is a little bit of a pain to remove as it seems to adhere to the box slightly during the sealing process, and there is no pull tab to help with tearing it off. I had to use scissors to make an incision to be able to get a hold of the wrapping. This kind of seal seems wasteful to me, but I guess the US is known for creating a lot of garbage.
