Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate 16

 Press Sample 

Hi guys, I hope you're well. Today I have the last stamping plate from the Beauty Big Bang set I received a bit back, to share with you. I apologize for posting it until now, but I didn't realize I hadn't posted it.

Stamping Plate 16 (SKU: J6401TM-5A) has lots of flower images, as well as some butterflies and a leaf image.
For my mani, I decided to start with an aqua holo polish as my base. Then, I decided to use a full-nail flower image, so I picked it up and did some reverse stamping. For the reverse stamping, I used: a light purple, a dark teal, and a multichrome polish. When the image had dried a bit, I stamped it onto my nail. Next, I chose a butterfly and a plant image for my pointer and pinky. I did some more reverse stamping, and then stamped the images onto my nails. After letting them dry, I added some top coat.
Close-Ups:
So what do you think? I'm pretty happy with the result, especially since I had no idea what kind of mani I would be doing with this plate. I'm also pleased that the plate wasn't so hard to work with.

Well I hope you liked the mani and short review. If you're planning to purchase from Beauty Big Bang, remember to use my code ANNY for 10% off your order. I've also listed their socials below, in case you'd like to give them a follow.

Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate 10

 Press Sample 

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing the fourth of 5 plates I received from Beauty Big Bang.

Stamping Plate 10 (SKU: J6401TM-4A) has full-nail images of flowers. I had a hard time deciding which image I was going to use because they're all so beautiful. Again, the plate is well etched, and it was pretty easy to pick up images.
For my mani, I decided to use the top middle image with the roses. I began by applying a teal polish as my base and letting that dry. Then, I picked up the image, and filled in the roses with white polish. When the image was ready, I went ahead and stamped my nails. The last thing to do was to apply top coat.
Close-Ups:
I don't know why, but I just love white roses on a teal background. Also, fun fact: white roses are my favorite flowers. What's your favorite flower? Let me know in the comments below.

Well, I really hope you all enjoyed the mani and review. If you're planning to purchase from Beauty Big Bang, remember to use my code ANNY for 10% off your order. I've listed their socials below, in case you're interested.

Beauty Big Bang Review: Stamping Plate 09

 Press Sample 

Happy Thursday guys! Today I'll be sharing the third stamping plate I received from Beauty Big Bang.

Here's Stamping Plate 09 (SKU: J6401TM-3A). The plate has many flower designs, including a sort of psychedelic flower.
For my mani, I chose the top middle image. The image looked kind of psychedelic to me, so I wanted to do a radial gradient. For the gradient, I went with a turquoise and a purple polish. Once I was happy with the gradient, I went ahead and stamped on the image with a white stamping polish. After everything was dry, I finished off the mani with top coat.
Close-Ups:
This mani ended up looking pretty cool. The radial gradient went perfectly with the image.

Born Pretty Store Review: New Products - Magnetic Polish & Cuticle Oil Pen

 Press Sample 

Happy Tuesday guys! Today I have 2 new products from Born Pretty Store to share with you. These, along with many other new arrivals, will be available for purchase tomorrow - June 6th. Also, make sure to follow me on Instagram because I'm partnering up with Born Pretty Store for a giveaway, and you could win these items. So let's take a look at them.
First up, we have a Magnetic Polish from the Aurora Series (item #42398), in the shade (BP-MA02) Lightning. I'm loving the new design of the bottles, they look very fancy and pretty. As for the polish, it went on smoothly and dried pretty quick. It did not come with a magnet though, so you will have to buy one if you don't already own one. I actually had a magnet from some magnetic Sally Hansen's I already owned, so I used that. I held the magnet over the polish while it was wet for 15+ seconds, to make sure I'd get an effect. I did this after the 2nd and 3rd coat, and after top coat as well. My swatches show 3 coats plus top coat.
3 coats plus top coat:

Next, we have this Cuticle Oil Pen (item #39329) in the Pineapple scent. I usually wouldn't pick this scent, but it's not bad. The pen comes with a cap to keep it closed, and you just twist the bottom when you need more product. I've never tried a brush oil pen before, and I have to say that I really enjoyed using it. The oil absorbed quite fast, and it didn't leave my skin all oily, which was pretty nice.
I want to thank Born Pretty Store for sending me these items to try out.

You can actually go preview the new products on their website right now; and if you're planning to make a purchase, remember you can use my code ANNYW10 for 10% off any regular priced items. I've linked their socials below, in case you're interested.
