Born Pretty Store Review: Rainbow Hexagon Glitters

**press sample**

Hello everyone! Tonight I'm excited to bring you my very first Born Pretty Store review! For those of you that don't know, Born Pretty Store is an online store with all the supplies you'll ever need for nail art. I've purchased studs from them before, so when they contacted me to ask if I wanted to do a review I was very excited. 

Tonight I'm going to show you the item that I've wanted from them for the longest time, "glequins". That is a term that was coined by the wonderful Sammy over at The Nailasaurus. It's really the perfect term for these things, they are a nice combo of glitter and a sequin and they are perfect for nail art. 

So I ordered this set from Born Pretty, and this is the mani I came up with. This is a picture heavy post, so click "read more" for more pictures and details!

For this mani I started with 2 coats of OPI 4 In The Morning. I used 6 of the 12 colors in the pack of glitters. When the 2nd coat was dry I used a dotting tool and dipped it in clear polish, put a dot on my nail, then used the dotting tool to pick up the glitter and placed it on the nail. Some might think it's tedious to place these glitters one at a time but I love doing it. They are thick enough that they don't curl or fly around with a draft, but thin enough that they work well on your nail. I didn't have any problems with application, other than my lack of experience. 

After I got all of my glitter placed I topped the entire mani with 1 coat of Gelous then sealed it all in with 1 coat of HK Girl Topcoat by Glisten and Glow. 

I love this mani and can't wait to play with these more! 

What do you think of these? Have you been drooling over "glequin" manis for as long as I have? I'm so excited to finally have some. 

If you want to purchase some too they are offering free shipping and 10% off with my coupon code VTJ61! Be sure to check it out!!! The shipping can be a little slow, but it is definitely worth the wait for these pretties!!!

Thanks for reading!
