Born Pretty Store Shimmer Stamping Polish review and swatches

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you all had a great weekend. After posting my Essence polish post I had a few people ask me to do a review on the Born Pretty Store Shimmer stamping polishes. So today I have a full review and swatches on both black and white for all 6 of the colours they have available.

All 6 polishes come in 15ml bottles so you get a lot of polish and a little goes a very long way, there is a bit of a smell when you are using the Born pretty polish. The best way I could describe it would be the smell of a Kleancolor polish, it isn't off putting for me but might be for others so keep that in mind. For all of these swatches I used Uber Chic collection 6 plate 2, there are some gorgeous images on this plate and all the polishes picked them up really well.

The first polish I have is this dark blue, it stamps really well over black and white. I wasn't expecting this to show up as well as it does on the black being quite a dark colour.

This gorgeous emerald green is breath taking over both the white and the black, this would be a great colour for a St Patrick's day mani. Four leaf clovers over a dark green would look gorgeous.


The next polish is this gorgeous icy blue, this again shows up over both black and white. This would look great if you were stamping snowflakes onto your nail, as it has that really wintry feel to it.


The rusty orange shimmer shows up really well on the white, you can see it on the black but not as prominently as I would have liked. This is a beautiful colour for autumn leaves and would look great if you wanted to have a bronze stamped over dark colours.


This pink shimmer leans more towards a red tone but stamps beautifully over both black and white. It is a lovely colour and think it will create some really gorgeous valentines day mani's.

The last of these shimmer polishes is this beautiful royal purple, looks gorgeous over light colours doesn't show as well over the black unfortunately. I actually used this in my recent manicure with Essence polish lucky, I loved the way it came out and how deep the purple looks.

Overall I am highly impressed with these stamping polishes, all of them stamp over black really well except the purple and orange. If the smell of Kleancolor polishes affect you then they might not be to your liking but I didn't find it too overpowering at all. You can buy all 6 of these beautiful polishes from the Born Pretty Store website for £18.75 which comes to £3.12 per bottle, a huge bargain considering they are 15ml bottles. It is free world wide shipping from the Born Pretty Store and does take a while to arrive to the UK, it took 3 weeks to arrive to me but definitely was worth the wait

I have purchased some more of their stamping polishes and can not wait to see what sort of manicures I can come up with. I hope you have enjoyed this post and I would love to know what you think of the Born Pretty stamping polishes so feel free to leave a comment below. As always I hope you are having a fab nail day and chat to you all again soon.

  1. Thank you for this post! I really need to get myself some of these! I love how you've showed all of them over black and white together so you can see the difference. The green has to be my favourite - how cool does that look! x
