Review: Born Pretty Store - Nicole Diary - Spider Gel - Black [#46022]*

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Nicole-Diary-Spider-Gel-Black Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Nicole-Diary-Spider-Gel-Black

Born Pretty Store is stocking this Nicole Diary Spider Gel and this is in the colour black. It comes in a sealed 5ml pot. It also comes in silver, blue, white, gold and red.

It is similar to a gel polish in that it needs to be cured using a UV or LED lamp. The viscosity is thicker than a gel, and a lot more stringy which is the 'spider gel' effect.

To use this I dipped a dotting tool in to the gel picking up a string of gel and then placing it over my nail to create a spider gel nail art look. Then cured it in my lamp.

Review: Born Pretty Store - Rainbow - Cuticle Pusher Tool [#38326]*

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Rainbow-Manicure-Cuticle-Pusher-Tool

Born Pretty Store have brought out a range of duochrome nail tools, I have reviewed the cuticle nippers here, and the triangle gel polish removal tool here. There are also other tools in the same duochrome finish.

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Rainbow-Manicure-Cuticle-Pusher-Tool

The handle is ridged which helps to grip the tool and makes using it easier. The look of the tool is very pretty too, it looks professionally branded as well as 'sparking joy' from the colour finish!

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Rainbow-Manicure-Cuticle-Pusher-Tool

One end of the tool is shaped like a spoon which is designed to gently push back the cuticle. The other end of the tool is curved to one side and is designed to scrape off any of the none living tissue pushed back by the pushing end.

Review-Born-Pretty-Store-Rainbow-Manicure-Cuticle-Pusher-Tool

I would say that when using this on myself I found using it on one hand easier than the other due to the curve. However if you were using this one someone else using only your dominant hand then I don't think it would cause a problem.

Born Pretty Fairy Tale L001 is a rectangle stamping plate with seven full nail images and 38 smaller images. It comes in a cardboard sleeve, hard plastic backed and with a protective blue film over. The theme for the plate is as the name suggests based around fairy tales.

All of the images stamped across well. There are a lot of very cute animals on the plate. I like the roses image as well as the raccoon.

Below are some nails I have done using the plate;
