Born Pretty Store - 4mm Pentagon Glitter

Press Sample

Happy New Year!

I thought I would share my first mani of the New Year with you guys. I used some glitter that I got from Born Pretty Store. These are called 4mm Hollow Out Pentagon Matt Glitter Powder Sheets Tips Nail Art Decoration in color 0443. That is kind of a mouthful so, I would just call them 4mm Star Cut Out Glitter in Turquoise. They come loose in a small jar and contain both a larger star with the middle cut out and a smaller star that is cut out from the middle.

These are very thin but not flexible at all so, the larger pieces have to be placed on a flatter part of your nail or the corners will stick out. To apply these, I dipped a tooth pick into my top coat just enough that it was sticky but not so much that there was a huge glob on the end of it. Then, i picked up a single piece of glitter and placed it where I wanted on my nail and flipped it over so the sticky side down. After all of the glitters were placed I sealed them in with my top coat and I was done!  I'm sure I will be ordering more of these in more colors in the future. :D

If you are interested in buying these glitters or other nail art supplies from Born Pretty Store, don't forget to use my 10% off code (UYG10) on the sidebar or at the bottom of this post! Shipping takes a couple of weeks and the prices are great.

For this mani I used...

Polishes: Speciallità Hits - Hefesto over China Glaze - That's Shore Bright with Glisten & Glow -  HK Girl Fast Dry Top Coat to finish.

  1. Love what you've done here. I'm hesitant to buy from the BPS because I've heard horror stories. I get offers to review, but I just go, "Hm...dunno!"

    Happy New Year, NPBFF!! <3

    I'm such a bad NPBFF, I still have to send the stuff out to you. I'm horrible. We should meet in Vancouver and I can bring it to you! You and Matthew need to come on over the left coast. :D

  2. Happy New Year NPBFF! <3
    Thanks! I really liked how this turned out, reminds me of rainbows and unicorns!

    BPS is hit and miss. I get more hits than misses but, there have definitely been a few products that I've bought that were more effort than they were worth or just completely unusable (Stamping Plate BP-06). The thing is, when you get a miss you're only out a couple bucks and the money you save on the other stuff kind of makes up for it.

    The shipping takes 2-4 weeks but, I am totally used to 2 week shipping now that I'm in Canada and almost everything I get is international shipping. I had one package get lost in the mail out of the 3 orders I've received from them and they sent out a replacement pretty quickly.

    We might actually meet up eventually though because my sister is potentially moving out to Seattle and my mom wants to move out there as well. I already have an aunt a few cousins over there. I wish we could move over that way because I am growing pretty tired of big city inconveniences.Can't be any time soon though because we maxed out anything we had that as credit on vet bills this year. Uggh. :(
