BornPrettyStore Review: Seashell Studs

Beyond the Nail - Holy Grail

BornPrettyStore sent me these cute Seashell Studs for review, and I am beyond excited to share my nails with you guys! My nails are probably not the most practical things, but how cute did they turn out?! I think I'm just impressed how well my nail polish colours go together and look like a beach!

I chose to do a gradient on my nails using Beyond the Nail's Asteroid & Holy Grail. I sponged on 3 coats of this gradient. When dried, I put on one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat, and while it was still wet, I stuck on a bunch of different rhinestones to my nails along with the Seashell Studs using my wax pencil to help with better application.

These adorable seashell studs are available at BornPrettyStore for $2.22 for 10 pieces.

BornPrettyStore Review: Large Vintage Damask Stamping Plate


Hey everyone! I got this awesome Large Vintage Damask Stamping Plate from BornPrettyStore and look how many designs come on the plate! This plate consists of 25 different vintage designs. I'm really into damask designs, so I thought this stamping plate was perfect. I did three different designs to show you how well this plate works. The designs are perfect and I had no problem getting any of the designs to transfer onto my nails.


For my first design, I painted my nails with three coats of Beyond the Nail - Little Pink Dress. I painted one thin layer of Beyond the Nail - Scattered Holographic Topcoat over it. When it was fully dried, I stamped over it with 3rd design on the first row using Konad - White Stamping Polish. I topped everything off with PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat and stuck on some rhinestones on my pinky.


This design started off with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Shiraz. I stamped over it using the 2nd design in the 3rd row with Beyond the Nail - Deep Black.  I topped every nail with PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat.


My last design started off with three thin coats of Beyond the Nail - Shooting Star. I stamped over it using the 3rd design in the 5th row using Beyond the Nail - Deep Black. When dry, I used PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat on each nail.

This stamping plate is available on BornPrettyStore for $5.99! What do you guys think of this stamping plate??

OZ Naturals - Hyaluronic Acid Serum


*sponsored post*
Who here knows what a Hyaluronic Acid Serum is? I certainly did not before receiving this product! I've never heard of any such thing, but after researching it online and getting my own bottle, I'm loving it!

OZ Naturals Hyaluronic Acid Serum has many great effects:
  • NATURAL & ORGANIC. Hyaluronic acid serum is considered to be the highest quality HA serum on the market.
  • CLINICAL STRENGTH. Anti aging, anti wrinkle serum (no cream) is proven to plump skin & fill in those fine lines and wrinkles.
  • This HYALURONIC ACID SERUM is guaranteed to give you that dewy, moisture boost needed to achieve that youthful glow & is proven to reduce skin's fine lines and wrinkles.
  • CRUELTY FREE, vegan hyaluronic acid serum does not contain alcohol, parabens or sulfates and is safe for all skin types - This hyaluronic acid serum for your face is an extremely effective anti aging, anti wrinkle treatment.
  • MADE IN THE USA in a state of the art FDA registered facility - OZ Naturals formulates the most effective anti aging products on the market - OZ Naturals products work & they work extremely well - This HA serum will provide your skin a more youthful appearance upon 1st use.

I received this product free for a review from OZ Naturals. I read the directions before using to know how exactly it's to be used. I washed my face and after it was dry, I applied the serum onto my face. A little does go a long way, so I suspect this bottle to last me a while. When it was completely dried, I applied a moisturizer over it. During the colder nights, I have a heater on in my room to keep me warm and  when I wake up my skin is really dry, especially around my eyes. I noticed that after using this product, I wake up with smooth, moisturized skin. I'm very happy so far with this product, but I have to use it a bit longer to see long lasting results.

Amie SkinCare Interview & Giveaway

Photo courtesy of  http://www.cutecosmetics.co.uk/
Hi everyone! Do you remember the skincare brand Amie Skincare that I've talked about so many times? Amie Skincare is a natural skincare line that works with sensitive skin. It's made with high-quality natural plant and botanical ingredients and is vegan friendly! I was given the opportunity to interview Fiona Parkhouse (the founder of Amie Skincare) and ask her anything about her line. Check out the interview below (& scroll to the bottom for the giveaway!)

  1. Why did you start Amie Skincare?

    I started Amie because I had become so frustrated searching for products that would be right for my daughter’s skin. She was starting to go through puberty and needed something to control the oiliness and blemishes that were starting to affect her. I wanted something gentle yet effective, that was full of great natural ingredients and free from harsh and aggressive chemicals that could irritate her delicate skin.

  2. Where did the name "Amie Skincare" come from?

    Well, Amie means ‘friend’ in French and I thought that my range should be your skin’s ‘best friend’ because it acts like your best friend does: helps and supports you through difficult times and is always there to make you look and feel your best!

  3. Did your past experience at Estée Lauder help you with creating Amie Skincare?

    Yes and no. I certainly knew how the beauty business worked but I have never had to create products from scratch myself before. At Estee Lauder they have whole teams of Research and Development who do that for the marketing team, so the product creation side of things was a very steep learning curve for me.

  4. How long did it take you to get the brand into stores?

    Not too long, actually, because I had really identified a gap in the market and the stores could see that too. So, it was only about six months which is very quick in reality!

  5. Did it take long to create products that are natural, vegan friendly, and safe for all skin types?

    Yes, it took a long time to get the products absolutely right. I was very particular about the look and feel of the products as well as about the performance. I also wanted them to have lovely, enjoyable fragrances, so that you felt pampered using them. So, it took lots of go’s to get everything absolutely right. 

  6. Do you have new products in mind for the future?

    Of course ! I love creating products and I am currently working on some lovely new formulas using some gorgeous natural ingredients. So, watch this space!

Chevrons and Studs


Hey everyone! I decided to mix up my nails a bit and do a fun design! Fun and EASY!
I started by painting all my nails (except my index finger) with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Beyond Grey. I painted my index finger with two coats of Beyond the Nail - Cherry Wine. When my nails were dry, I placed on some Chevron Nail Guides onto my ring finger. I put on one coat of PRO-FX - Quick Dry Topcoat on all my nails, and stuck on some Textured Nail Studs from BornPrettyStore.
