Born Pretty Glitter Nail Polish Review

Hello my lovelies! How is your week going so far? I'm still enjoying my vacation and my only regret is that the days are rushing by too fast. The Born Pretty Store has been so kind to send me some fun nail art supplies to review and I'm gonna show them to you this week. I'm gonna start with some glitter, because everybody needs some in their life. This is a glitter nail polish* that comes in a beautiful bottle, shown below. 

Born Pretty Tribal glitter nail polish
The brand of the nail polish is Tribal Colour and it has the number 24 on the bottom label. You can find it here on their website, where it's shade #4. It comes in a decent sized bottle of 12 ml (0.5 fl.oz.) and the price is very convenient. 

There are more ways of using this glitter for a manicure. It's quite easy to get it opaque by itself, so you can do a whole manicure using just this polish. It's definitely a very bold look!

I chose this particular shade because it has lots of blue glitter in it (both larger and smaller), but it also has orange, black, fuchsia and gold hexagonal glitter, as well as a few pieces of white bar glitter. The clear base is packed with glitter, to the point where there's almost no clear base, which makes it a bit difficult to spread the glitter evenly. I did 2 coats for the look above and had to do a bit of arranging with my brush to spread the glitter pieces nicely. A couple of coats of top coat were necessary to level everything out. One thing I liked about this and want to mention is the fact that it didn't have a strong smell, so it probably contains no toluene. 

If this look is a bit too much for you, there's always the option of doing just one nail (the accent nail) and keeping the rest of the nails in a solid color. Or you can do my favorite thing, glitter tips. It's what I did on my left hand and loved it! 

This is just the right amount of sparkle that I like to bring to my manicures. I used Rimmel Blue Eyed Girl (terrible stainer, by the way) as a base color and then dabbed some of the glitter on the tips. Another thing I'd like to mention is that the glitter is quite hard to photograph. The sparkly multicolored pieces made my camera freak out. It didn't even want to focus most of the time. But I can assure you it looks very pretty in real life. 

If you like this glitter you can find it here. There are 5 different colors to choose from. You can use the code MFL91 at checkout to get 10% off your order. Shipping is free! 

I hope you enjoyed this review and thanks for reading!
