What’s your absolute FAVORITE nail polish?
OPI Reflecting Pool
Japan/UK Exclusive from the Reflection Glitters Collection (circa 2009 ish). Weirdly this was the first OPI I ever owned, found in a random chemist in a dusty corner all on its own. It’s one of my favourite OPIs, great formula with icy teal-blue teeny micro glitter and larger gold micro glitter. It’s a great winter colour rather than the classic vampy dark shades, feels like the kind of thing the White Witch from the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe would wear. It was a limited edition but has a famous dupe in Zoya Crystal so you can get that if you can’t find this one.
YOU’RE A STUD!
Today I have a product from Born Pretty Store to share with you. I was generously provided with a bag of 4mm gold square studs for an honest review. The studs came in a small plastic packet, which I later poured into a small container for easier use. They are very light even though they are made of metal, so they do not bother me at all.
I was worried that these studs would snag on my clothes, but I have been wearing these all day with no problems at all - they are flat and the corners are rounded. Unlike other metal rhinestones, these do not get discolored after applying a top coat.
Application of these studs are incredibly easy. You do not need to use glue. A simple top coat adheres the studs firmly.
Each bag sells for less than $6 and with the coupon code MANDIEW21, you can enjoy a 10% discount off your entire purchase (+ free shipping worldwide).
Born Pretty Store sent me the product to review. I am in no way affiliated with this company. The opinions stated in this review are honest and my own.
I used OPI’s Mermaid’s Tears as the base color.
