Born Pretty homerun!

I have to admit I was a bit nervous about ordering nail polish that I’d never heard of or seen reviews. But these beautiful shades had me intrigued and judging by the gorgeous green I swatched the other day, I felt this would be a winner too. I wasn’t wrong! I can’t be certain but I think the name of this brand is BK? It’s all in Chinese so I can’t say for sure. No color name, just 24. But its gorgeous! Not what I’d consider a full size bottle as you can see here.

The color and texture reminds me a lot of Zoya Pixie Dust in Arabella. No, not a total dupe, but close enough. It doesn’t have that micro silver glitter in it but it shines on its own just fine. The formula is perfection and dries fast. Girls, this is ONE coat! Now I want to order more! Ya like? You can order yours and so many more pretty things at and use my 10% off discount code LDX31. use LDX31 for 10% off your order! use LDX31 for 10% off your order!

If you are considering doing blog reviews for this company, I want you to be aware of something. Communication with them has become increasingly spotty. They ask for product choices that you’d like to test and review. They send you items at their cost for this purpose. It started out fine from my first order. Fast forward to today, May 17, 2014, I have been volleying back and forth for 2 months. I sent them, at their request, items I’d like to review next. A full week later I get an email an item is out of stock. This is from their NEW ITEMS listing. So I go through the site, choose again, email. Wait two weeks for response. Etc, etc. Without giving you every ridiculous detail, either someone is “posing” as Alice, my previous contact, or she’s not making it into the office very often. I got an email this morning to give her a detailed choice of the last item replacement. I did. I never had this trouble ordering for myself with my own money or points. So, for you bloggers out there who are considering reviewing products for their blogger program, get ready for frustration. I want to be perfectly honest about this because I know that a lot of my readers are bloggers themselves. It’s not always easy dealing with a company in a foreign company. There are language and translation barriers. Culture differences at times and communication is most always somewhat delayed. But this is over the top. I’ve always been kind and understanding with BP store, but I think it’s time to convey the fact that this is bugging the tar out of me. I even chose a nail polish from their site for review, as the three polishes I bought before were nice. She emailed me two weeks later, they can’t send polish overseas. SAY WHAT?! Bogus. So there. This is off my chest and we will see where it goes from here. Have any of you had these issues with your contact? Let me know.
