When it comes to companies and they want to consistently work with me, I am extremely thankful! That's how I feel about Born Pretty Store. Not only are the people at Born Pretty Store great, they have up-to-date nail products that is changing with the styles.

Here's my most recent haul. I got one nail polish and two stickers. For this post, I will review the nail polish.
Product Review: Born Pretty Candy Color Fluorescent Nail Polish in CE#008

Where to purchase: online at bornprettystore.com
Price: (no description because the product is sold out)

Thoughts: Before I review the product, I cannot find it on the website. It's most likely sold out. Sorry about that! I did not expect that, but I did find a page with similar polishes (Candy Ice Cream Cone Nail Polish).
Here's a closer look at the polish and I have to say it's pretty true to color!
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my perfect brush (OPI), the length and width is almost exact. I would say the width is slightly thinner but not by that much. The length is the same.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Formula X For Sephora Base Coat, 2 coats of Born Pretty Candy Color Fluorescent in CE#008, and topped it off with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the consistency of the polish is in-between medium to thick. I found it kind of thick for my personal taste. With that said, it also applied thickly. For that reason, you can apply once and it'll be opaque. Just because I'm so anal, I applied twice. To be honest, applying once and twice there's no difference in look. One and two apply the color was the same and there was no sheerness. There's also no streaking and bubbles. Secondly, the packaging is oh so adorable. It reminds me of the Korean brand Etude House. The only thing I didn't like is the sticker on the cone. The sides would stick out and not stick on the cone. I'm not too sure if it's normally like that or it got ruined from being sent from all the way over from Asia. Third, the color is gorgeous! It's a great bright, fluorescent blue. It's perfect for the summer season! I also got a lot of compliments and I think the color is unique. I'm sure there are other brands with this color but it'll be hard to find. Lastly, the polish lasted 5 days. I barely noticed any chips. It just chipped because I scratched my nails during my weight training class.

Pros:
* Cute packaging.
* Variety of colors.
* Bright and opaque.
* One coat is good enough.
* No streaking.
* No bubbles.
* Unique, gorgeous color.
* Lasted 5 days before chipping.

Cons:
* Thick consistency.

Would repurchase: Yes.
