Tribal NailArt using Born Pretty BP-X05

Today I'll be reviewing the newly released Born pretty Store square plate BP-X05 (item #29978; link)

Base: Maybelline porcelain party, Sally hansen Black heart,
Stamping polish: Essence Stampy black; Accent: Mdu Neon yellow, Mdu Neon Pink (middle finger)
Decals filled with Models won Sun hat and MO Bikini

BP-X05  (item #29978; link) is part of their newly released plate this year. It has tribal type patterns in big sizes which will cover long and broad nails completely. The patterns stamp crisp and clear. I like this plate as you can also fill in colours and make very colourful decals like I did. 
I like these type patterns that are spaced out a bit and the base also show through. As with always I find born pretty plates good in quality and this comes with a thick sticker backing. Images are well etched and come out good.
This plate retails for $1.99 which is fairly nice and affordable price.

These are the stamping decals I made using this plate.

Spiral Illusion

Sometimes when it turns out right with Nail Vinyls I really like the result.
Base: Krizia Into the Blu (took ages to dry)
Vinyls: Twinkled-T Cyclone Variety Pack
Sally Hansen Dri-Fast Silver Sweep
Pointer and pinky finger freehanded with SH silver sweep

Here's a swatch of Krizia Into The Blu.
It took ages to dry..I bumped a nail after an hour and it still made a bad dent. It might be the humid weather here says the maker of krizia so we'll see how it goes post the monsoons here. Its a pretty blue with holo glitter but not as holo as I expected. Goes opaque in 2 coats.

Dance Legend Beautiful Lie

Base: Dance Legend Beautiful Lie; Pinkie-Models own Rose chrome
Nail Stickers on Middle and Ring Finger
Stamping from JQ 25 (pointer) JQ 13 (pinkie), using Essence Stampy white and MDU violet

Close up of DL beautiful lie
Its a beautiful purple filled with holo flakies. The flakies give a very vibrant rainbow in direct light and the effect is that of a scattered rainbow. 2-3 coats make it opaque. Dries fast.
The holo in this is much more pronounced than those of Picture polish scatter holos.
Here's a swatch of it in direct light to show you the holo:
