BornPretty Nail Crystals & Sweet Color #3

Press Sample

Hey dolls! I am in love with today’s look! The Atlanta area is currently being hit with another winter storm, so I spent a few hours swatching yesterday while at home. BornPretty Sweet Color #3 ($11.79) is a brown base filled with flakies that shift from gold, to orange, to green, to blue. The formula is sheer and applies evenly without the flakies sticking up from the nail. This is meant to be a layering polish, so one coat of Sweet Color #3 was used over  two coats of Barielle Make it a Latte.

To add a little bling, I applied a gold BornPretty Nail Crystal ($1.99 for 2 pieces). The crystal fit perfectly over my nail at its current length. It was easy to apply and I just added it to the nail while my top coat was still a little tacky. The crystals are metal and don’t bend at all, so these can definitely be used again.

Does this not look amazing?!? Talk about a statement nail! It’s clearly a bit much for everyday wear, but it would be great for nice event. I also really like this flakie. The color shift is quite noticeable in one coat and the flakies are a great size. How do you feel about this look? Is the nail crystal too much?

    Oh #3, love those flakies. Not a huge fan of the crystal, but I don’t like 3D nail art that snags, gets stuck in my hair, etc. It would certainly make for a flashy NYE mani though!

      Thanks! I know what you mean. I’ve never tried any 3D nail art before this. Surprisingly, I didn’t have any issues with it getting snagged or stuck.
