Born Pretty Matte Polish Review!

Hello readers! Football is still on at our house so I figured I'd take the opportunity to write up this post! It's been a while since I've done a Born Pretty Store review, and it's lacking on my part, not theirs. I've had these since around when Owen was born and I'm just now caught up with my review items that accumulated in the past 2.5 months.

I chose 2 of their matte polishes as well as a wheel of different colored pearls to try this time. The polishes had to be thinned with thinner for easier application but I really think I could have added more drops. Especially to the blue, that one was thick and harder to apply than the black.

I was impressed with how pretty the black was when it dried! It reminds me of the suede matte polishes out there with the added shimmer. It dried to a normal matte finish. The blue surprised me by drying to a "rubber" finish! Both took a bit longer to dry than the matte polishes I'm used to.

They don't have names, just numbers. The black is 02 and the blue is 20. You can find all of their matte polishes among other nail art supplies HERE.

I decided to use both matte polishes and some of the pearls for one look! 

I used:
2 coats of matte polish black 02
3 coats of matte polish blue 20

I dabbed a drop of matte top coat on the flat side of the pearls and then stuck them to my nails. You can find these pearls here:
