Hey all!
Been way to long I think.

I was contacted by the folks over at Born Pretty to review a couple of their nail art products. So they sent me 4 items and I came up with this tutorial using 3 out of 4 of the items.
For more detailed pictures of the items I used, please scroll down.
 Im super excited to share this awesome discount code for 10% off
Discount Code APWW10
Come visit my other oulets!
Plate 35
I had to prime this plate with acetone before it would transfer the full image on to the stamper. But after that, no problem. Paisleys ftw!
Plate L002
LOVE this plate! never had an issue with the transfer.
Nail art Pen 7
I loved this pen for the decal. It isn't opaque. But I actually preferred this because it allowed me to add layers of color. So I ended up with light pink and bright pink for contrast.
Easy to use.

I have been waiting 3 months for this collection!
The wait was more than worth it. I love each one of these polishes. Its like the perfect runway collection. They all flatter each other perfectly.
In my area the Essence collections are sold at Ulta and Fred Meyer.
I picked up one of each item in this collection with exception of the body glitter spray.
Here is some nail art I created using most of this collection. To see me create this mermaid mani click HERE
Each swatch is two coats.

I am so in love with these Mermaid nails.

The pearls and iridescent hex are from ebay.
The ring and pinky finger are nail wraps from the Essence collection. And my review and process for those can be found HERE
Then painted over with The Mermaids Tail.

Essence Aquatix Collection Mermaid Nail Sticker Review

I Purchased these wraps at my local Fred Meyer. The Essence collections can be tricky to find. Ulta carries them often.
The Aquatix collection is due to be in all stores by November.
I was very happy when the stocking person went into the back to retrieve the collection for me to pick from! I picked up one of each item.
But today I am reviewing the wraps.
I felt it necessary to film this. And I am glad I did. You get to see the change in the texture first hand. Right before your eyes.

Bewitching Hour Collection. Swatches

This collection is a collaboration between Fairytale Polish and Sincerely Polish, The inspiration for these 4 polishes came from the movie Hocus Pocus. The names are super appropriate.
All swatches are 2 coats.
Description from shop.
'Evil Seductress' is a squishy reddish purple jelly polish filled with a gorgeous and sparkly blend of bright pink and purple holographic glitters with a sprinkle of silver holographic dust. For best results, apply 3-4 thin coats and seal in with a shiny top coat in order to achieve the squishy look. This polish is inspire by Sarah Sanderson.
'Put a Spell on You' a black glow in the dark jelly polish packed with a hypnotizing blend of iridescent glitters, silver holographic moons, and gold shimmer. Polish is glitter heavy so some settling may occur. Just give your bottle a good shake and turn upside down for a few minutes. Apply 2-3 generous coats and finish with a shiny top coat.
'Wicked Enchantress' is a gorgeous green polish with violet/gold flakies, green/gold flakies, and purple holo stars. This polish was inspired by Winifred Sanderson. Apply 2-3 evenly coats.
'I Smell Children'
is a beautifully bright Reddish-Orange glow polish with rose/gold flakies, black skulls, and a sweet smell of candy corn. This polish was inspired by Mary Sanderson. The skulls in this polish like to sink to the bottom. I will be sending everyone an extra baggie of skulls for glitter placement. Apply 2-3 evenly coats.
Now I chose not to add the skulls (which are incredibly cute!) because of the nail art I did on top.
Being from Seattle area I did these Monster Seahawks
You can see how well the polish glows. And the smell is lovely.
I am a big fan of this Halloween collection. I'm so glad I purchased all 4!

Ellisons Organics Nail Laquer Fall Swatches

What can I say? These were love at first swatch. And I cant wait to talk about the polish. But first a little more about Ellison's shop.
Ellisons Organics is a lovely shop. Not only does she sell 3 free nail lacquer but many other organic items as well. I actually purchased some adorable Lego soaps for my son. A little early Christmas shopping.
You can also find many other lovely things from Bath Salt to Insect Repellent. So go check her shop out.
Now onto the 3 free nail lacquers.
I love the brush! I cant say it enough. The thicker the brush, the better. This one does not disappoint.
I feel in control of the application of polish.
Each swatch is two easy coats. No top coat.
I will say that Music of the night is my favorite. So, lets start with that swatch.
