Hi everyone! Today I have something really exciting to share with you, my very first review for Born Pretty Store. I've been buying from BPS for a year and a bit now and I have always been amazed with the quality and price of the nail art equipment I've purchased, so when they approached me to do a review I had no doubts at all! I chose to write about the loose round glitters. These are a lot like glequins, which you have seen in my nail art previously, but instead of being small hexagons they are small circles! For $7.60 + free shipping you get twelve little pots of glitter that hold a surprising amount! Read on with this review because at the end of the post you will find a 10% coupon code for my readers!
I chose to do three different nail art looks to show off this glitter, but before we get started I propose we christen these with an easy to remember name. If glittery-hex-sequins are called glequins, how about we call these glircles for glitter circles!
For this look I used the iridescent emerald glircles on top of OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok, Fine! from the Germany collection. This deep gray really brings out the colour of the glircles, which as you will soon see can get lost over a lighter colour.
I liked how simple these were but also how eye catching. The glircles seem to change colour depending on what light they're in from a deep green to a lighter one.
The second, and least favourite look of mine, was an attempt at a glircle gradient. I started with the red ones which blended into orange, then orange blending into yellow, yellow into green and so forth. As you can see, you can barely tell the difference between the yellow, green, and blue when they're layered over a light colour like OPI Skull & Glossbones.
Unfortunately I'm not crazy over this look, but I bet over a darker colour which would show off the true iridescence of the glircles would look stunning!
This is my favourite manicure that I did using the Born Pretty Store glircles. I used the holographic gold ones, as well as OPI A Grape Fit! and Zoya Megan. I loooove how pretty this is!
There really are endless possibilities with these glircles and nail art. For my next project I think I'll try to find a chic way to mix glequins and glircles in a nail art design - do you have any ideas?
I was also sent a little ring to review or to wear in my swatch pictures, but the ring isn't really my style.
