Creative musings in bright colors

Marching in Gold

I just got a set of nail art things to review from the Born Pretty Store (they kept sending things to my old address, so it’s been a year since my last review of their products!), and I wanted to use them ASAP since the stores was nice enough to send them to me. This means, unfortunately, that I only get to wear the nail art for a single day as I am in the middle of my surgery rotation which means no nail polish during the week and teeny tiny nails! I am giving it my best go, but that is why there are no outdoor photos (there was no sunlight the single day I got to wear these) and my nails are so short.IMG_9786

The geometric plate BP-77 is one I have had my eyes on forever! I love geometric patterns, and ones with differently spaced and sized lines are so hard to create with striping tape, so this plate is awesome. I had very little trouble picking up any of the 3 designs I tested, although my nails are short enough that you can’t see the full range of what I was going for!


I settled on black/gold/white to make everything pop. I kinda love it! I might repeat this very closely when my nails are longer…or make a colored in decal of the design I used on my thumb.


~ Black: Wet n’ Wild – Black Creme
~ Gold: Essie – Good as Gold
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Stamp: BP – 77


You can pick up this stamping plate for $1.99 from the Born Pretty Store, and use my 15% off code LY5X31! Hope you enjoyed!

  1. They sure are pretty this short!

    LOVE the geometric pattern ❤

  2. These look great. I think it wouldn’t have been as great on longer nails.
