Review: Born Pretty Store - Fantasy Sky - Fantasy Holographic Series [#42852]*

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Fantasy-Sky-Holographic-Series-#42852 Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Fantasy-Sky-Holographic-Series-#42852

Fantasy Sky from Born Pretty Store is a charcoal stamping holographic polish, which comes packages in a small cardboard box.

The holographic rainbow is very strong in this polish, especially in direct light. I have worn the polish as is below;


And because this is a stamping nail polish I used it in a chevron design below. I found the polish was easy to use, and stamped across really well. I used it over a silver below.


Overall this stamping polish is great for stamping as well as wearing as is. The holographic rainbow is strong and a beautiful polish.

Empties: December 2018

Only three polishes I have used up during the past month.

Barry M - Cuticle Oil - I like this, does what it is supposed to, I'm not too keen on how it solidifies in temperatures sub 15 degrees though. I would prefer a different scent but that is personal choice, I would repurchase this [full review].
 NYC - West Village 204B - Clearly a navy polish, I liked the colour but the formula wasn't the best so I wouldn't repurchase.
Belle Glamour - This was quite unique in my collection, a square glitter polish, which has now dried up. Don't think Belle Glamour Polish exists anymore [swatch].
OPI - This Cost Me A Mint - Really like the light mint green of this polish. I would repurchase if I didn't have numerous mint greens [swatch].
Superdrug - Acetone Free Remover - Basic remover but does the job without taking off any repairs made to the nail, usually I use a DIY acetone remover.

Essence - All About Matt! Powder - My go to pressed setting powder. It makes me matt for a good few hours and most importantly doesn't turn me orange unlike other so called transparent setting powders, I think it has now been discontinued.
So Sinful Lip Balm - I didn't find this lip balm to be very good, it also was heavily coconut scented which is something I don't like so not one I would chose to use.
John Frieda Foam Hair Dye - This is a different type of dye, it is a foam which makes it easier to apply. I also find I can use only one box of this dye whereas with standard dyes I need to use two.
Superdrug Vitamin E Day Cream - I found I could only use this under make up, as it just left me so shiny. I wouldn't repurchase this.

Avon - Red Berries Bubble Bath - As with all of the bubble baths from Avon I have used none of them actually have a scent either in the water or lingering on your skin. I wouldn't repurchase this although it did make bubbles and dye the water.
TRESemm√© Keratin Shampoo - I liked it but it isn't vegetarian so I won't be repurchasing it. It does however leave my hair smooth.
Cotton Wool Balls - I liked these, you got 300 in a bag too which lasted me a long time. Pretty sure they were from Superdrug, which if they are I will repurchase.
Pretty Candles and Melts - You Sexy Bean - This had so much potential, smelled so much like Lush's Sex Bomb in the pot but once melted there wasn't a scent throw to it. Disappointing.

Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - Valentines Day L008 (#45515)*


Born Pretty Store Valentines Day L008 is one of the rectangle shaped plates measuring at 12cm by 6cm. It comes packaged in a cardboard slip sleeve and with a protective blue coating which you peel off to reveal the images. This plate is designed for longer nails.


This plate has nine full nail images on and 19 single images. The theme of the plate is Valentine's Day.


Trying to show how well the images stamp across and they've all stamped across really well.

Here are some nails I have done using this plate;

[Loved Up Flamingos]
