January 13, 2020 Lisa 0

[press sample] The last product(s) that Born Pretty sent to me was a package of products meant to support reviewing a new magnetic gel polish: BP-MSS04 Boundless Galaxy. What I didn’t realize at the time was how grateful I should be that they included the magnet. The little $1 paddle Read More

September 25, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Today I’m reviewing two items from Born Pretty: a golden stamping polish called “In Fire” and a their space-themed Outer Space-L001 stamping plate.

February 19, 2019 Lisa 0

[press sample] Wow. I can’t believe I’ve reached the end of my reviews. Having to stop painting my nails because I was reacting to the fumes really backed everything up and now reviewing feels like the new norm. I picked this last polish because I found the khaki-looking nature of Read More
