So, I bought this set of Born Pretty Store powders back in December/January. I had tried them over white and lighter colors, but I finally got to try one over black!
I decided to try he blue first. As my base I have Zoya Willa, which is just black. Then I used my Aora base and tops coats along with the powder. It is like the other chrome powders, so you do need to use it with gel.
When you first apply it over the gel base it isn’t very shiny, but it comes alive when you add the top coat.
I was actually very impressed with the quality of the powder itself, it is very finely milled so you get nice, even coverage. You don’t see any large particles or anything like that.
The color is beautiful, it’s similar to a Zoya Neve, which I love.
Overall, I’m very impressed! I love this color and I’m excited to use the others!
I haven’t done a NOTD in a lonnnnng while, but I’ve been having a lot of fun with chrome powders!
So, there is a lot going on here. On my pointer I have a base of two coats of Zoya Eastyn, then I used Sparkle & Co gel top coat and new rose gold chrome powder! On my middle and ring fingers, I have a base of two coats of Zoya Megan. I topped off my middle finger with Sparkle & Co gel top coat and then added the Born Pretty Store blue, purple and gold opalescent powders (you can see the blue/purple shift in the photo). On my ring finger I used some silver leaf topped with Sally Hansen Big Shiny Top Coat. My pinky is two coats of Zoya Willa, accented with a rose gold stud an topped with Essie Good To Go,
I also had to show you my thumb! My base is two coats of Zoya Megan, then I used Zoya Alicia to create the drips, topped with Essie Good To Go.
Overall, I really like it! What do you think?
I’ve been using gel and chrome powders a lot lately, so I’m trying to transition back into more regular polishes and nail art. I have some things in mind and will try to get back into the NOTD groove.
I had a $50 Amazon gift card burning a hole in my pocket, so I decided to use most of it on some nail art stuff that I’ve been wanting!
I got a silicon mat for stamping, and a clear stamper.
Then I got a pack of 5 opalescent powders and a silicon tool for them and my chrome powders. You get 5 colors: blue, purple, green, pink and yellow, I’ve labeled then with letter so I know which is which lol.
Finally, I couldn’t not get some glitter! I got this pack of 12 different glitter combinations. Each container has three different size round glitters.
So far, I’ve used the blue opalescent powder over white polish. It turned the white more into a cream, but it did give it a blue flash/undertone, which was really cool. I need to test them over black to see them better though.
I also used some of the glitter on a friend of mine, and I love them! I did kind of like a gradient over black and it came out really cool!
Please ignore our ugly tablecloth lol. That glitter looks great though! I’m really happy with everything I’ve bought so far.
