I am so in love with this adorable turtle manicure that I did using Green Stamping Polish from the Born Pretty Store.  It was extremely easy, so any beginner can do something similar with whatever stamp design they might have.  I have several reviews for products that I have received from the Born Pretty Store, and you can see the other BPS reviews I have done by clicking on the Born Pretty Store link in the “Categories” section on the right hand side of the blog.  These turtles are super adorable, but the real star of the show here is this gorgeous duochrome green stamping polish.

A stamping polish has a slightly thickened formula than a regular polish that results in an opaque stamped image every time.  A regular iridescent green polish would never get the crisp, clean, opaque images that a true stamping polish would give you.  That is what makes this polish so unique.  It is just as gorgeous as a regular duochrome green polish, but has the formula of a true stamping polish for excellent results.  The polish actually has a teal blue base, but it is so packed full of green and gold shimmers that it appears green in the bottle.  The color of the stamp changes depending on what base you have stamped this polish over.  If you start with a white or blue base color, you will see more of the teal come out in the stamp.  Over black though, all you would be able to see is the shimmery green.  I can’t wait to try it out over all sorts of color bases.

For my turtle mani, I used Rimmel 60 Second polish in Let’s Get Nude from the Rita Ora collection.  I used a stamp from the Salon Express Nail Art Stamping Kit (Plate SE21) that I reviewed way back in early 2012.  I don’t know if it is still available, but any turtle design will do.  The polish would also look great with a fish design.  The stamping could not have been easier, and I had all ten nails done in five minutes.  I topped everything with Seche Vite, and I was done.  The green stamping polish worked like a dream, and looks amazing.  I highly recommend it.

I love this green stamping polish, and am going to get a lot of use out of it.  It will look so cool for holidays, like Halloween zombies and Christmas trees.  It is currently on sale for $3.59 at the Born Pretty Store.  As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, the Born Pretty Store is located in China, so shipping will take a while.  It is normal for orders to take 2-4 weeks to ship to the US, and in my experience, I have gotten most of my orders within 2-3weeks.  You should definitely plan ahead if you are ordering something time sensitive (like for a vacation or holiday items) and order them early.  Orders ship within 24 hours.  Check out the BPS website bornprettstore.com, or their facebook page for more details.  For 10% off any regular priced items from the website, use coupon code BBBK31.

I am a self proclaimed eyeshadow junkie whose main hobbies include shopping, reading, singing, and mainlining caffeine while hanging out with my friends. I love interesting socks and have amassed quite a collection. The place that I want to visit before I die would be Greece. I like to read all seven Harry Potter books once a year the way some people read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. (Sorry JRRT, but JKR kicks butt in my book.) I love art, and use my creativity in many different ways through painting, crafts, and makeup. I love to cook and try new things, and I especially love to eat. My favorite "date" is to go wine tasting, and do so with my husband once or twice a year. I love musical theater and think the world would be much better off if we all just watched more musicals. I am 100% a cat person and, although I think dogs can be really cute and sweet, they make me sneeze so cats will always rule. I love faeries and magic, mythology, theology, philosophy, and psychology. I regularly do logic puzzles and sometimes crosswords. I adore Bette Midler, Betty White, and Carol Burnett. I am not ashamed to admit that I watch Glee. I would like to start making some of my own clothes because I can't stop myself from buying fabric. I'm sure that there is much more, but I'm suddenly distracted by something shiny.
