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.
