BP Store Review: Brushes & Acrylic Paint

After I did the first Born Pretty Brush Kit review I realised I didn't have many detailing brushes. So I got some...

I painted these nail art wheel nails and then I trimmed the brushes down, they are thin, but I prefer thinner. Keep reading for a closer looks and some more about the paint I use.
I wanted to try these myself after I saw that pretty awesome nail artist Celine from Celine Does Nails used them in many of her the super detailed designs. Before trimming it took a lot of patience to use them, I'm really used to thinner brushes, but I guess that's just me, since Celine loved them so much!

from left to right: #0 Red, #000 Dark Blue, #00 Light Blue, #0000 Yellow
The kit contains 4 brushes of different sizes and different colours, which is something a really appreciate, it's easier for me to find the one I want to use in the moment, if you know what I mean.

Above you can see they came protected by plastic tubes, and then the colours and numbers.

You can purchase this kit online at Born Pretty Store for $3.51, ID #465, shipping worldwide. Don't forget to use a coupon code for 10% off: HBJ61.

I don't have many designs painted with these to show you, but I did some on my nail art wheel also using acrylic paint from Born Pretty.

If you use acrylic paint as well, you probably know how fast you run out of these two colors - black and white. After I finished those from my acrylic paint set I bought some new in local craft store but I was curious about the paint they have in BPS. This means I have tried three brands so far.
I love this black, it was perfectly opaque, I wasn't so excited about the white, it's as good as the one I have from local craft store, I would expect it more opaque, but as you can see in the photos it's opaque enough. There is nothing I could complain about otherwise.

You can purchase this paint online at Born Pretty Store for $1.99, ID #7615, shipping worldwide. Don't forget to use a coupon code for 10% off: HBJ61. 
I feel like the price is too high for a 12ml bottle, but then that's what happens when you want to buy just ONE piece instead of the whole set, right?

I have all the brushes I wanted know, so let's do some nail art! Stay tuned for next time. (Although I don't know what I'll be posting yet.)
Bye bye!


  1. Margee, I can't wait to see your artwork using the new brushes. I love the designs you did on the nail wheel!
