Born Pretty Store liquid texture polish review!

Hi! I'm back to blogging now, feeling a little bit better so I'll get back to doing some reviews and actually writing some stuff in my posts :)

Today I've got a textured polish from Born Pretty Store to show you! This polish was sent to me to review, you can read more about this on my disclaimer page.

The polish I chose to review is this one in number 15 which is a pretty minty colour with green glitter. You can get 10% off your order with the code TS10K31.

I've mentioned before I love textured polishes for lazy days because they usually dry quickly, chips can be covered up quickly, although they don't usually chip very easily, and you don't need topcoat. So I went straight for a textured polish to review!

This polish is so pretty but it doesn't dry as quickly as other textured polishes I've tried. It took around 40 minutes for each coat to dry on me.  Also, although it didn't affect me at all, this polish does have a slightly stronger/more chemical smell than lots of other polishes I've tried but I'm used to polish smells so it wouldn't put me off but if you're more sensitive to that smell I'd advise painting your nails next to a window with this polish!


Here's a close up with flash to show the glitter up more!


This polish lasted well on me. I usually change my nail polish every day but I left this one on for 48 hours and had no chips.

Zombie Mickey and Minnie Mouse mani using OPI polish

Hi! I've been really busy and really ill (in equal measure) for a few days so I haven't blogged. I'm still ill and busy but I have lost to show you so for the next few posts I'm going to do some silent nail art posts. I'm not often silent so enjoy the break ;)

Today is my zombie Mickey and Minnie mani using OPI polish, acrylic paints and a 3D bow! I hope you like it!

Mickey and Minnie mani using OPI polishes!

Hi! I hope you had a fab weekend!

Today I'm going to show you my recent Mickey and Minnie mani! To do this I used two mini OPI polishes from the Minnie Mouse collection - sorry, they don't have names on them! I also used white acrylic paint and nail vinyls I found on Etsy.

On my left hand I used a darker red polish, on my middle nail I put a Mickey vinyl and on the other nails I used a dotting tool and white acrylic paint to make the nails look like Mickeys' shorts!


On my left hand I used a lighter textured red polish. I used a Minnie vinyl on my middle nail which is actually made up of two vinyls, the mouse head and the bow. I used the dotting tool and white acrylic paint to put polka dots on the other nails.


I used two coats of top coat to smooth the vinyls out and seal the design!

I have another Mickey and Minnie mani to show you soon!
