REVIEW: MAGIC MAGNETIC NAIL POLISH (GREEN) & NAIL WHEELS
Hello lovely followers! Today I have a beautiful green magnetic nail polish along with some nail wheels from Born Pretty Store (BPS) to share with you. 

The magnetic polish blew my mind. I have to admit that I wasn’t expecting it to work very well because a few months ago, I splurged for nails inc.’s magnetic polishes (so I was being a bit biased). BPS offers various colors of their magnetic polishes for a fraction of the cost. The magnetic polish was extremely easy to use and it even came with the magnet. I started off with two thin coats of the polish to build a foundation. When those two layers dried completely, I put a thick layer over a nail (do this one nail at a time so that the polish doesn’t dry before you can get the magnet on it) and immediately placed the magnet as close to the nail as possible without actually touching the nail. I let the magnet hover over the nail for 30 seconds. “WOW.” The wavy effect came out perfectly and I love that 3D look it gives off. Then I repeated the same step for each finger.

This polish is perfect for you busy bees - you get instant nail art! I highly recommend this product to all my followers. It is definitely a cheaper alternative to nails inc.’s magnetic polishes and there are even more colors to choose from on the BPS website.
I had no trouble with the formula. The polish went on smoothly with no streaks. Oh and finally, I have to gush about the bottle and brush. It is the same shape as OPI’s (my favorite brand) bottles and it came with the similar wide-style brush. Love everything about this!
Okay, moving on to the nail wheels.
I was so excited to finally have some nail wheels to use for swatching and practicing. Don’t you hate it when you have a fresh, new manicure, but then you buy more nail polish and you can’t swatch them on your own fingers? Story of my life. With these nail wheels, you can easily paint them, hover the nail over your finger, and get a good sense of what the color will look like on your hands. Amazing. The package comes with ten nail wheels, each with 20 nails (a total of 200 nails).
I plan on using these wheels to swatch my nail collection for easy viewing. :)
The set of nail wheels and magnetic polish each cost about $6. These prices are amazing and I don’t know where else you would be able to get these deals! On top of that, shipping is free, and when you use my coupon code MANDIEW21, you get 10% off your entire purchase.

Feel free to drop me a line if you have any questions! You can also find me on Facebook. Thanks for reading! - mandie

REVIEW: KANDNAIL STAMPING PLATE & STAMPING POLISHES
I received some goodies from Born Pretty Store a few days ago and finally had the chance to try them out today. They provided me with the KandNail stamping plate CK-04 and two stamping polishes in black and white.

The KandNail stamping plate CK-04 is a large stainless steel slab containing 42 intricate designs. Unlike the Konad plates, KandNail is rectangular in shape and about 3 times larger. I decided to go with a simple zigzag pattern to show you just one of many looks you can create with this plate. The stamping polishes resemble the Konad Special Polishes - the formula is very thick, which works perfectly to make the image opaque.
Overall, I was pleased with the products. My only complaint at the moment is that the designs are not big enough to cover my entire nail bed (or maybe I just have big nails, haha).  I was a little disappointed at first, but of course, you can improvise, get creative, and make things work. :)

I would definitely recommend this stamping plate to a beginner. You can wow your friends with very detailed designs even if you don’t have a steady hand. Please note that I did not use the black stamping polish for the base color. You should use stamping polishes for stamping purposes only as they are much too thick to create a smooth surface. I used a regular black polish for the base.
The KandNail plate costs $7.56 and the polishes cost $3.41. Born Pretty Store offers a wide selection of different stamping plates and various colors for the stamping polishes, so definitely check them out! And of course, as a reader of mandie’s manicures, you get a 5% discount off your ENTIRE purchase! Just enter in coupon code MD5W21 before checking out.
