Born Pretty plate m56 + Zoya Tao and Cynthia

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Friday! Any plans for the weekend? I finally have a day off tomorrow... I've been going non-stop with work and classes since we started and I'm exhausted. I'm going to read the three books I got for research for a paper and get some swatching done!

Today I have a review that is long overdue. I've been so wiped lately that managing to change my nails every two days is an accomplishment... from the girl who used to panic at the idea of wearing the same polish for longer than a day. I know. Weirdness. Anyway, after my last Born Pretty review I was given the chance to do another. Stamping is something you guys always say you'd like to see more of when I do little polls and my stamping posts get more comments (probably of people thinking LOL FAIL or something hahahaha) so I chose a stamping plate.

I love the Born Pretty plates because they're meant to be Konad dupes. I chose a plate that I've always wanted to order when I'm doing Konad orders and somehow never get around to it... but look.

The watermarks give it away, obviously, but... pretty darn close, right? If you follow me on twitter you might have seen that I did a manicure with the design in the top left corner... I thought it would be fun to do it black and white and... actually, I really hated it LOL. I decided to try another manicure with a different design and I ended up liking this one far more! It was unusually subtle for a stamping mani for me, usually I do crazy colours and animal print...

I started out with two coats of Zoya Tao, then stamped with Zoya Cynthia. Finished it off with Revlon QD topcoat but you can see I didn't wait long enough, I got a bit of smudging :(

You can visit the Born Pretty website to go shopping - my attention was recently caught by the nail foil stickers! Shipping is always free to anywhere in the world, so if you've been hesitating on buying Sally Hansen nail polish strips, maybe check out the BP ones. If Konad plates are too pricey for you, check out their awesome selection of plates. I love the Hello Kitty plate too! You can find the plate I used in today's post here. Links galore! Born Pretty is definitely worth checking out, though! If you've been wanting to try out nail art and are kind of put off by the prices, you can't beat BP :) And who doesn't appreciate free shipping?

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!
