2-in-1 Review: Born Pretty Store Soak Off Gel Polish + Rhinestone Bow

Hi girls,

Today I have a 2-in-1 review for you!

You might have noticed that I love to use gel polish nowadays...
So today I have a review about a BornPrettyStore gel polish which I have bought with my own money, and a set of Rhinestone Bows which I received for reviewing purpose...

Let's take a look at the gel polish first:

This is a BornPrettyStore gel polish in #17 which is a gorgeous bright pink colour which looks slightly neon.
You'll receive a bottle of 15 ml which probably will last you a long time because you need to apply thin coats.
I've paid $8,72 for this gel polish which you can buy here.

This is 4 thin coats...

The consistency is a bit on the thinner side, but not a problem, because gel polishes should be applied very thin to prevent bubbling or wrinkling. With 4 coats I got the opaque colour I wanted.

I really love this colour and shiny pedicure!

Now on to the Rhinestone Bow.

BornPrettyStore sent me this Dazzling Rhinestone Bow. Isn't it cute?

You can get this Dazzling Rhinestone Bow #113 (or heart, skull, butterfly) in a set of 2 for $1,99 over here.

I'm quite pleased with this cute pedicure!

Okay girls, don't forget to use my couponcode KPX31 for 10% discount with your next order:

I hope you liked this 2-in-1 review, see you next time and thanks for watching!

*Some products in this review were sent to me for honest reviewing purpose.

Pedicure: Silver Foil

Hi everyone!

Today I tried one of my Foils: Silver. It's just plain Silver Foil. Not a holo one, just plain Metallic Silver Foil. Here are some pictures of it:

This time, instead of regular topcoat (that crinckles/crackles) I applied two layers of topgel and cured this for 2 minutes under my UV-light lamp. The result: no crackles and a long(er) lasting foil Pedicure :)

On the pictures it doesn't really show, but I can almost see myself in my mirror-nails :)

I'm very happy with the anti-crackle solution that really seem to work!

When I get bored of them (which might take a while, because I really like them!) I maybe try some Konading on it... I think it will look nice with a full nail design...

I hardly see transfer foils in Blog-land. Aren't there any fellow Bloggers who like foils??

See you next time!

Foil Pedicure!

Hi everybody!

Let me start by warning you guys: this post contains pictures of feet! If you don't like feet, skip this post and don't watch  :)

Last year transfer foils had my interest, and so I bought a lot of them :) (see a picture of my foil stash below).

This is my first foil Pedicure... The foil I used is called Passion Pink:

I made the mistake to put on the glue on both feet at the same time, so the glue on the 2nd feet sat too long... That's why my tiny toe is the worst of all. I started foiling with my right foot, ended with my left foot, and so this toe was the last toe, and eventually the worst...

Next time, I'll be more careful with putting on the glue, because I now see I skipped some corners...

And ofcourse it's a bummer to see how shiny and metallic the foil is, until you put on your topcoat :(
It crackles the foil, and after the topcoat has dried, the crackles disappear a bit, but you can still see them.

Maybe next time I'll put on a very tiny coat of acrylic or gel, to see how that reacts with the foil.
It might prevent crackling... Worth a try!?

This is the glue & foil I have used
(I took this picture without flash but under lamplight, so not color accurate)

And last but not least: a picture of my foil stash :)

Do you like foils? And would you like to see more Pedicures?
