Born Pretty - 5 Nail Art Stamping Polish Set

These polishes were sent to me for review. They can be found here for $6.93 for the entire set of 5.

On a sad note, my red bottle came broken. :( It has a chip out of the edge, so the entire contents were dried up. It didn't appear to happen in shipping because there was no polish that leaked out on the other bottles.
:( No amount of thinner could have restored this...

Here is how the bottle compares to a regular 14mL bottle of Seche Vite.

Here's how I tested these. I wanted to share how well they show up on both dark and light colors. Also how they compare to other polishes of that color that work for stamping.

Over white and black.
Born Pretty stamping yellow is across the top half.
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lightening is across the bottom half.

Over white and black.
Born Pretty stamping blue is across the top half.
Barielle Berry Blue is across the bottom half.


Over white and Barielle Berry Blue.
Born Pretty stamping black is across the top half.
Konad Special Black polish is across the bottom half.


Over Zoya Dove and black
Born Pretty stamping white is across the top half.
Konad Special White polish is across the bottom half.

Overall opinion? Just meh. It's better than nothing, but I think you can get better quality stamped images with other polishes.


The brushes are pretty wonky too. Kind of mop-like and ineffective. But you really don't need a stellar polish brush for stamping am I right?

  4. this gives new meaning to the wonky brush XD you don't need it for stamping but it would be nice to be able to do something else with it if you want to
