Valentines day nails + Born Pretty Store liner polish review.
I received another couple of items to review recently from Born Pretty Store, here's a review of one of them! I ordered a two sided liner/dotting polish, which you can find here. They're pretty cheap, only $3.96 US, and like the rest of BPS, it has free shipping. Here are the nails I used the brush for! I love them, they're great Valentines Day nails :).
Here's the liner polish. They also have many different colours!
I have kind of mixed feelings about this, to be honest. The best way to describe it is you get what you pay for. It's worth the four dollars, but not ten. It won't revolutionize my nail art, but it'd be great for someone just starting out with a small liner brush.
Here's the liner brush part of it. As you can see in the photo above, it has two ends - this is where I got confused! In the listing for it is says "one end with a ball and another end with a brush." But it doesn't, it has both at the same end, which means that you can't actually use the dotting part as the liner part is blocking the nail polish off! I couldn't, at least. I looked around for other reviews and some say they used it, some had the same problem as me. So if anyone knows how to make it work, let me know and I'll update this!

my watermark is, meaning you can't use the dotting tool.

I guess technically you could use the dotting part, if you dipped the end in polish first. But I think that's unlikely, and why would it say doubled ended on the site otherwise? This really does confuse me...
Anyway, if I was just reviewing the liner brush side of it I'd say it was pretty good. I trimmed the end slightly as it was a bit uneven, but that's just my preference. It is lovely and thin, meaning I could do these nails quite easily. The thing I love most about liner brushes is that you don't need to wash them out afterwards! I'm so lazy and hate cleaning my nail art brushes :P.
I used this brush to outline my fence posts for this Valentines day nails. Does this still count as a white picket fence, do you think? Or does it also need the little triangle on top? I think it counts. I added vines and red roses on to the the fence to make it more romantic. I've wanted to do this nail art for ages now, but was too afraid to try it as it's so detailed! However it worked out pretty well, and I must say that this liner pen did help :).
Again, you can buy it here.It's full name on the site is "New 2 way Black Dotting Pen Nail Art Polish Ball & Brush."
