Born Pretty Store Review: Sea Star Charms

*Disclaimer: this item was received for review. All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced by anyone or anything.

Hi everyone!

I'm back with another Born Pretty Store review. I picked some cute starfish charms for this review, because I love mermaid-ish nails and these are perfect for that ;)

  • What?: Starfish charms. You get 5 pieces of them. You can get these in either gold colour or silver colour.
  • Price?: These cost $2.29 for 5 pieces. The pieces are reusable.
  • Where can you get it?: Here is the item link on BPS.
  • What do I think?: I love these! They are cute and fun, they are a bit curved so they fit well on my nails too. They're not too big so they won't fall off your nails immediately.

For this mermaid-y design, I used Essie's Trophy Wife as a base colour (3 coats), and on my index finger and pinky I made a gradient with Trophy Wife and with Essie's Naughty Nautical. I also added some glitter from Fogan Cosmetics (nr. 48) on top.

I had entire boxes full of little crushed stones that were gifted to me by a fellow polish enthusiast (thank you Mariska!) and I thought they were perfect to use here on my middle finger.

So, in short: yay for starfish! I love the shape these have too, I like that some arms of the starfish are longer than the other arms.
