I'm going to review another product from Born Pretty Store.

I received some nail art products, and I already reviewed the DIY Nail Art Stencil on the far left. For this post, I will review the nail polish in the middle.
Product Review: Born Pretty Holographic Holo Glitter Nail Polish Varnish Hologram Effect 12#

Where to purchase: online at bornprettystore.com
Price: $29.88 for 6 mL/ 0.2 fl oz

Description from the website:

1 pc Born Pretty Holographic Holo Glitter Nail Polish Varnish Hologram Effect

100% brand new

Thoughts: When it comes to holographic polishes, I think they're just plain gorgeous! While looking through the website, I fell in love with this color.
Here's a closer look at the polish and it's very true to color!
Here's a look at the brush. Compared to OPI which I consider as medium width, this brush is in-between thin to medium. It's also very short in length.
I applied Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat, 2 coats of Born Pretty Holographic in #12, and then topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.
Here's another view of the nail polish on my nails.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the width of the brush in-between thin to medium and the length is short. When I first saw the brush, I thought I would struggle and get frustrated. It actually didn't bother me which is shocking in itself. I actually found it easy to paint my nails. Secondly, the consistency is medium. It's not too thick where it gets clumpy, and it's not too thin that it's watery. That might be another reason why it was easy to paint my nails. It goes on smoothly, and there's no streaking and bubbles. Third, it's extremely holographic and it's even noticeable indoors. That's a huge plus! I own another holographic polish and that's only noticeable outdoors. Lastly, the lasting power is 4 days which is comparable to OPI. It's not one of those noticeable big chunks, It's slight chip at the ends.

Pros:
* Comes in a variety of colors.
* Brush is easy to use.
* Medium consistency.
* Easy to apply.
* No streaking.
* No bubbles.
* Shiny.
* Extremely holographic even notice indoors.
* Longevity is 4 days.

Cons:
* Hard to find in stores.

Would repurchase: Yes.

Wow! I didn't know BPS had their own nail polish, and holo ones at that! It looks really pretty, and if the holo even shows up indoors, double wow. :D But $29.88 for 6 ml does sound a little pricey >_<

I'm thinking the price listed on the website might be wrong, but I'm not 100% sure. It is expensive but the polish is so worth it!
