Born Pretty Store Holo Polish #12

Born Pretty Store contacted me and asked if I wanted to review some more products for them. I asked if I could review nail polish only and they agreed. Their conditions are that I need to link to the product, link to their nail art section and have their discount banner in the post. In return they provided the polish for free. You can be sure that I will review these polishes just as I do any other, as if I had bought it myself. :-)



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (3-4 minutes a coat). The brush is really small so be sure to have plenty of polish on it for good coverage. It really is a great green holo. Lasted well.

Avon Diamond




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 1 minute a coat). This is a nice texture polish. I'd say it was a kind of pewter colour! Nice formula and the brush was good. Lasted well.

Colour Alike 541






This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It's a gorgeous purple that is slightly iridescent! The shift could have been stronger, but as a purple it's really lovely anyway! Like other Colour Alikes before it, this one is scented but isn't that strong. This lasts really well.

Miss Beauty Top Pink




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (2-3 minutes a coat). At first I thought it was going to be sheer, but 2 coats did the trick. I would say to be careful of painting because it can be prone to brushstroke. It's a pretty baby pink! The is a really cheap brand and I'm happy with the quality. Lasted well.
