Christmas Toy/Robot Nails (Born Pretty Store Review)

*Press Sample*
Hello! It's officially December now, so I can finally get away with Christmas nails (not that I haven't snuck a couple in already!). I was recently sent some more items from Born Pretty Store to review, among which was a cute robot stamping plate and a gold stamping polish. I paired these two together and tried my best to make it Christmassy! Here is what I came up with. Read on for more info!

I started off with a base of Nine Zero Lacquer 'Santa Suit', a bright red jelly with gold holographic microglitter. The jelly base in this is much more opaque than I expected, and applies very smoothly and evenly. It was a bit sheer on the first coat but covered fully with two. The microglitter is very fine so does not leave the polish textured. Below is two coats and topcoat.

Before I get into the stamping, here's a quick look at the plate itself (item #30335, online here):

Born Pretty Store Robot Stamping Plate @acertainbeccaa

I stamped using the Born Pretty gold stamping polish (item #27226, online here). I used my current favourite clear stamper, also from Born Pretty (reviewed here). I picked out two robots for my middle and ring fingers, and some of the cogs for my pinky finger. I had a perfect pick up each time. I finished off by adding some presents from Uberchic Christmas plate 02 to my pointer finger.

What do you think? I think everything works together quite well! It's nice to do something a little bit different (not that I don't have lots of cheesy Christmas manis coming!). I had absolutely no issues with either the Born Pretty Store stamping plate or polish used in this, so I can happily recommend both! I also have fallen a bit in love with 'Santa Suit' - who doesn't love a sparkly red at Christmas?!

Hope to see you in the next post!

  7. I love the colour combo and the robots. I've never heard of Christmas robots, but I'm betting they'd be my fave kind.
