Review of Born Pretty Crystal Sand Top Coat Nail Polish

Normally I’m not a huge fan of textured polishes. You know the type I’m talking about. They usually have microbeads or other small artifacts in the formula to create a rough surface on purpose. While some of these polishes have been useful for certain nail art designs, the majority of them stay tucked away in storage.

Imagine my surprise when I saw this Crystal Sand Top Coat offered from Born Pretty and actually loved the look of it?

This product comes in the new style Born Pretty packaging, so it is a small 6 mL bottle of top coat inside a white and gold printed box with a window cut out in the front so you can see the product. The back lists the ingredients, and the top flap is sealed with an easy to remove sticker.

The brush is nice and pliable and a medium width so it is easy to control.

Textured Leaf Manicure

My pick was Fearless from Formula X for Sephora. I then applied a generous coat of BK Super Matte Surface Oil to create a flat finish.
