Born Pretty Store is well known for nail products. Given the opportunity, I choose a purple nail polish. For some odd reason, I have really been into purple polishes. This is rare since I hardly wear pink, except on my toes, and purple.

Thoughts: When I had the opportunity to choose anything to review, I wanted a purple nail polish since I really have been craving purple polishes. I don't know how many I need but I've been craving for more. Yes, I have issues. :X I fell in love the color from the website. Only issue was I was not too keen on the packaging.
Going back to the color of the nail polish... I was expecting purple, but it's more a periwinkle. I love the color since periwinkle is one of my favorite colors.
Now for my nail of the week...
Overall opinion... While applying the nail polish, it had a strong scent. It's an unique scent. I don't think I have ever smell anything like this. It's very chemical-like, but it goes away after the nail polish dries. It applies very smoothly and there's no streaking. I love how it applies, as well as, the consistency. It's not thick nor thin. It's on the medium thickness. I would say slight thicker than an OPI nail polish but not by much. It lasted a good four days before chipping. It's not one of those nail polishes that chip at the bottom. It's one of those that get a bubble at the end and a big chunk of nail polish comes off.
* Cute packaging.
* Unique periwinkle color; more purple than blue.
* Expiration on the bottle.
* Medium thick brush; easy to apply and use.
* Medium consistency; applies smoothly.
* No streaking.
* Hard to find in stores.
* Cannot test out or see swatch before ordering.
* Strong scent, but goes away after it dries.
* Chips in 4 days, but in big chunks.
Would repurchase: Maybe, but this is a unique color.
