Floral Nails using BPS Flower Yarn plate S002

Today prompt is Floral Nails for ill's #backtonails for September's last week prompt.
For today I choose to do my mani using Born Pretty Store's Square Flower Yarn S002
(item #43672; link ). I have always been wanting a layering stamping plate to play around with different combination of images. And this is the perfect plate to have handy.

Base: BPS holo Blue Love (item #42846)
Stamping Plate: BPS Flower Yarn S002
Stamping polish: El Corazon st-81 Bisque, MDU black, Essence stampy white
Stamped the flower base with Color club Miss Bliss
Topped with Hkgirl

The plate is for $1.99 which is very well priced and size is around 6cm*6cm. The image variety is good especially for layered stamping with flowers, butterflies and 3 full nail images. I find this plate really versatile and cute. The images picked up crisp and its really easy to do layered mani using a clear jelly stamper. I suddenly feel the need to own more layered plates. 😆

Born Pretty Store Holo Polish Blue Love

Hello! September is almost coming to an end. The year is just flying by. really!
Today I have a cute little polish from Born Pretty Store to show you.
BPS has really come out with very awesome range of holo polishes. 
On review here today is a blue holo polish called Blue Love (BP RR-07 #42846; link) from their Rose road series in Deluxe holographic range of polish. 

In sunlight
in artificial light
I loved how holo the polish is, its not a very linear holo nor is it too scattered. The blue shade is also very flattering on my skin tone. The polish in this range come in 10 cute shades and I had a hard time picking one. Bottle size is 6 ml for $7. I find it's a bit pricey for this size but the quality is good. One thick coat is sufficiently opaque. But I've used 2 coats in my pics above out of habit. The polish dried fairly quickly in 5 mins. Overall I quite like this polish and considering that I don't get any real holo polish locally I am very pleased that BPS has got good holo polishes now. My packaged reached me in 15 days after shipping.

Polish sent for review. It is my honest, unbiased opinion.
