Born Pretty Stamping Polishes Review.

I have another fun Born Pretty Store product to review for you today (and of course a manicure to go with!) This time I'm reviewing a set of stamping polishes. The set comes with five basic colors, white, red, yellow, blue, and black. 

I did a few test swatches and comparisons so you could get an idea for how each of the colors stamps. The yellow, red, and blue came out very opaque over white. The white and black stamped well, but I wasn't as impressed as I was with the primary color stamping polishes. I decided to compare the white and black to my Konad special white and black polishes. The Konad polishes were more opaque in both cases, however the difference between the blacks was not very significant.

The color I was eager to get on my nails first was the blue, so I based this manicure around that. I started with a base color of Milani White on the Spot, and then I stamped a chevron pattern on my nails using BM-204 with OPI Ate Berries in the Canaries. Then I used the blue stamping polish and BM-20 to add stars to my manicure.

I really liked this manicure (if you swapped the berry colored chevron out for red it could be a really fun updated American flag type manicure) and was very happy with the performance of the blue stamping polish.

I'll probably continue to use my Konad black and white stamping polishes, but I doubt I would be able to find a better yellow, red, or blue stamping polish, especially for a good price. They'll definitely become staples in my stamping nail art supplies.

If you want to order these polishes for yourself the set is $6.93, or you can purchase the polishes individually for $2.05 each. You can get 10% off any Born Pretty purchase using my coupon code, BRJ61.
