Review and test : Born Pretty Store

Hi there ! 
A while ago i received a package from Born Pretty Store , they sent me some items for review :) I had such busy weeks lately , so i'm finally ready with my post ....
Born Pretty Store is well known for their affordable items and especially for nail art supplies . They are located in Singapore , i believe .
I've ordered a few times from them too after i got the review package , so i'm able to give you more info about shipping time as well .
So i want to say a HUGE thank you to Bern Pretty Store for sending me these items ! I'm really happy :)

This is what i've gotten :

A gorgeous Chameleon nail polish
A sheet of hollow stickers
A baggy of flat Chameleon Rhinestones , size 2.4 mm
A nail art wheel of different sizes rhinestones , silver 
And a sheet with Cat water decals , black option 244

 So as i said i also have ordered a few things myself after i received this package . 
Shipping to Belgium was $3 .... really i never paid so little for shipping , this is absolutely amazing !
One day later i got my shipping notification and it took about 4 weeks to delivery . Items were very well packed in bubblewrapping and i received everything in excellent condition .
So you need some patience for the package to arrive , but i don't mind that :)
Everything on their shop is very affordable , the chameleon polishes are a bit more expensive but well worth the money ! These are now on sale btw :) , so grab your chance . $5.99 instead of $15.88
SALE END on 31st May !

So i did this mani with a couple things of the review package ! Hope you like it :)

Items i've used :

OPI nail envy base coat - not shown in picture
OPI nail polish mini A Grape Affair (LE Coca Cola Collection)
Essence nail polish 193 Best Dressed (not sure if this is still available)
Born Pretty Store Chameleon nail polish #33 - sent for review
Born Pretty Store squishy dual stamper  - purchased by me
Born Pretty Store Image plate - purchased by me
Born Pretty Store Nail wheel with different sizes of rhinestones - sent for review
Born Pretty Store Hollow Stickers - sent for review
United Beauty Gel Touch Top Coat - not shown in picture 

The BPS Chameleon nail polish shifts from Purple to teal and i also saw a bit of a pink tint to it . It has different sizes of green glitter . You need to apply this over a dark base color . The polish itself was smooth to apply and dried fairly quickly!

 These are very sticky , so make sure that your nail polish is completely dry before you apply these on your nails . The image looked pretty after i applied the polish , not as crisp as i wanted it , but it looked pretty .

 I'm currently testing this out ... It's a Top Coat that you apply on top of any nail polish and all you have to do , is cure it for 60 sec in a LED lamp and then remove the tacky layer .
Your polish should be flawless for 10 days ... 

 I primed the stamper by using acetone and cleaned the plate with acetone 
The image transfered very nicely on my stamper without any issues , i had crisp lines and transfered on my nails beautifully !

Beautiful variety of different shapes , rounds , bows , flowers , squares ..

How i did it :

1 applied 1 coat of OPI Nail Envy Base Coat 
I applied 2 coats of OPI nail polish A Grape Affair on my thumbs , pinks and indexfingers
I applied 2 coats of Essence nail polish Best Dressed on my middle and ringfingers
Then i applied the BPS hollow stickers with the flowers on the nails i've painted with the OPI color and applied one , fairly thick coat of the BPS Chameleon nail polis #33 and removed the stickers immediately .
I stamped with Moyou Stamping polish Key Lime on my middle and ringfinger and used the flowers from the BPS image plate , i stamped with a pressing motion .
After all this i let my nails dry completely for an hour .
I topped everything off with United Beauty Gel Touch and on the nails where i've applied the chameleon colored flowers , i placed some of the little round rhinestones from the nail art wheel.
Next i've cured it for 60 sec under my LED lamp.
I've applied a second coat of this Gel Touch Top Coat to seal in my rhinestones.
Cleanse with a Gel Cleanser !

So i hope you guys understand . I also did more nail art in the past weeks , so you will see some NOTD's passing by too :) and i'm probably going to try to do some more reviews too .
The weather is getting warmer and more sunny overhere , so it's hard to stay inside when the sun is smiling at you and asks for being with her , LOL 

This is a look i did a few weeks ago for a night out , but never came around posting it ....
I've used this gorgeous palette from MannyMUA , i used it so much since i have it . It's beautiful and very wearable .

What i used:

MAC painterly paintpot all over the eye , blended
Browbone to crease : MUG e/s Vanilla Bean
Crease , blended up : MUG Beaches & Cream

Swatchfest / Review : Makeup Geek MannyMUA palette

Hi there !
Today a swatchpost / review of Makeup Geek's Limited Edition MannyMUA palette .
This cute palette from Makeup Geek is a collaboration with MannyMUA , beauty vlogger on Youtube . If you haven't seen his video's , go do so , they are hilarious and i like to watch them . He's such a fun person and does awesome makeup looks !
It's a 9 pan , warm toned palette (my kinda thing :) ) , 3 of the colors are Manny's favorites from MUG's permanent shades and 6 are brand new and exclusive to this palette . You will find mattes , shimmers , and foiled shades . So it's a nice mix of different finishes .
This palette is so popular that it sold out immediately after it was launched. I was lucky to buy one through Makeup Geek's webshop 
It retails for $45 , which is an awesome deal if you ask me , knowing that a regular pan costs $6 and a foiled eyeshadow $10. So you get a value of $62 in a $45 palette (there are 2 foiled e/s in the palette) ,i think that's a pretty good deal
It was available in limited quantities at Beautybay.com , but also sold out immediately and i'm not sure if they are getting more of this palette . It will be available again at Makeup Geeks webshop , don't know when , but you can sign up and get a notification when it's in stock again.
The palette itself is a cardboard magnetic packaging , the one like the Vegas Lights palette was. So you are able to depot them very easily and put them in a z-palette , however why would you ... !? Just look at that packaging ... it's so freakin' cute !! But if you prefer to put them in a Z palette with all your other Makeup Geek shadows , you can :)

Here you can find Manny's first look and swatches on the palette .
Here you find the video with Manny and Marlena together 

So let's take a closer look at the packaging and colors:

The front of the box has Manny's logo on it . It's matte black and the logo is holographic . At the back you can find a little word of Manny himself and a picture of him . It's a reflection of how Manny is , Manny the night owl :)

The palette itself is also black , with embossed stipes and logo from Makeup Geek. At the back you find the shadenames and cute moons :)
The palette is very travel friendly , very sturdy and magnetic , so you are able to pull the eyeshadows out the palette . Inside you find 9 warm toned eyeshadows and a good size mirror . You get 2 foiled eyeshadows which are Insomnia and Luna , 5 mattes and 2 shimmers. 3 shadows are from the permanent line , Manny's favorites : Beaches&Cream , Frappe and Cosmopolitan. All others are custom shades:  "Insomnia" is a color that already excists as a pigment , but for the palette they made a foiled version of it , Artemis , Luna , Sora , Mars and Aphrodite are the other custom shades.
The eyeshadows are incredible ! Awesome pigmentation , very very long lasting , blend like a dream ... there is honestly no bad thing i can say about Makeup Geek shadows ... sorry just not a tiny thing :)

Anyway here you can see the swatches , taken by daylight and applied on Urban Decay Primer potion

Makeup Geek describes them as following :

Artemis—Artemis is a muted champagne yellow with a shimmery finish. (custom)
Beaches & Cream—Beaches & Cream is a soft peachy beige with a matte finish. (permanent)
Sora—Sora is a medium earthy terracotta with a matte finish. (custom)
Frappe—Frappe is a medium maple brown with a matte finish. (permanent)
Cosmopolitan—Cosmopolitan is a gold-flecked medium rose with a shimmery finish.(permanent)
Luna—Luna is a medium rose gold with a foiled finish. (custom)
Mars—Mars is a deep cherry red with a matte finish.(custom)
Aphrodite—Aphrodite is a deep plum brown with a matte finish. (custom)
Insomnia—Insomnia is a warm red brown with blue reflects and a metallic finish. (custom)

So i hope you liked this review and swatches !
