The Born Pretty nail art store was kind enough to send me a few more products to review. I chose this foil polish to try because I was curious about the brand and whether it would be good for stamping. The brand isn't listed on the product page on the website; the bottle I got is labeled BO and the shade number is 061. (I think I'll that Bo, like the Obama's dog, or Bo Jackson, rather than BO, which makes me think of b.o.)
This polish has a very strong, old school chemical smell. If you have a delicate nose, you might want to avoid it, but since I'm old enough to have been wearing polish since before there was such a thing as B3F it sort of made me nostalgic to get a whiff of it. Application was fine; it covered in two coats and dried quickly. On my ring finger, I used Revlon Lunar as a base and stamped with the Bo on top, using a design from the "Hello Kitty" plate Born Pretty sent me earlier this year. The Bo worked fine for stamping, though because it's a foil finish and not a chrome, the stamping looks stippled or mottled rather than solid.
This polish costs $2.85 for 16ml. There are two other foil colors, blue and pink, as well as others in other finishes, sold individually or in sets. If you use code KARENDK31 you will get 10% off on any products from Born Pretty from now through October 31, 2011. My bottle arrived wrapped in multiple layers of thin foam sheeting, so even though it had to come all the way from Hong Kong to Michigan it arrived safely.
The gold polish and stamping plate used for this entry were provided to me for free for review purposes. The content of the entry was not dictated by the provider, and I get to keep the products for my own use.
