These next items were sent to me to review from the Born Pretty online store.

The first three items are nail polish from the brand BO. The bottles are pretty small, but the colors more than make up for their small size. I loved the shimmer that these polishes had. The brushes and formula were nice on them too. The smell of these is a little on the strong side though.

The next polish I got was a multi sized glitter top coat. I love top coats like these, they are great to layer with. The clear base of this polish was a little on the thick side, almost like a gel, but I think that is what helps you pick up the glitters better. This polish had a strong scent too.

The last items I got were nail decor items. One tin came with all kinds of sweets to decorate your nails with. I was super excited about getting these! I have a love for outlandish Japan style nails, which usually uses items like these. I can't wait to come up with a nail design to use these on.

The other tin had cute bright colored stars with little jewels in them. I think these will look awesome this summer on some pedis.


All of these items plus a ton more can be found at BORN PRETTY STORE. Check them out today!

Wow, I can't believe the labels on the bottoms of those bottles. OPIPRDUCTS INC and Original Nail Envy, seriously? That's even OPI's phone number on the label. I'd actually contact OPI and report this company for trademark infringement and fraud. I looked the company up and it's a Chinese company. Too bad they can't just make and sell beautiful colors without trying to cheat people by using someone else's name and design. (They also make bottles that look identical to OPI, but with B(dot)O on them. Terrible!)

Nothing against you, Brooke. You're awesome, as always, and I'm glad you're posting more often again!

AIMEE - Wow, I didn't even put those names together with OPI, until you pointed it out. I guess at least with the ones I got the bottles are obviously nothing like OPI's, but that is a shame to hear that they are "stealing" from OPI bottle designs and names, because the colors really are very nice. Thanks for the info, and I am super glad to be back and posting again!

I like the colors though, and I don't know of any opi polishes that look like that.

I never noticed that until Aimee pointed it out! The colours are really nice, though. I have tons of stuff from Born Pretty Store and I do like their products and the store in general. It's just strange having that label with a Hollywood address on it.

I love the colors! But to have them in a collection 'B O'? Seriously? OMG!!! And you mention they are odorous too!
