OPI FUN trio from the Color Is The Universal Language collection

As a huge OPI fan, I have had the good fortune of testing a lot of their polishes. A couple that I will be featuring here today I’ve already tried, but in the super mini bottles. So it was a pleasure to get the chance to try them on using the regular size bottles and brushes. I’m just not a fan of those microscopic bottles. I received two kits/boxes (each containing 3 polishes) from Loxa Beauty. The one I’m showing you today is titled “Fun“. They are currently on sale through Loxa for $21.50! Fun contains You Don’t Know Jacques, Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm? and My Dogsled is a Hybrid. Here we go!

This is the "Fun" trio, Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm?, My Dogsled is a Hybrid and You Don't Know Jacques.

Stamping kit for beginners like me

Stamping kit for beginners like me

And I must emphasize, I am a BEGINNER when it comes to nail stamping! You can find tons of stamping tools and design plates for your nail art at the Born Pretty Store http://www.bornprettystore.com/professional-nail-stamping-kit5pcs-exquisite-nail-stamp-p-9338.html for every level of expertise. Let me remind you that it is very important to use a highly pigmented (non-sheer) nail lacquer for the stamping process. Now I have hundreds of polishes and have never purposely chosen one with stamping in mind. So choosing a polish to test this sucker out wa a challenge. I finally settled on a recommended brand/style using a Sally Hansen Insta Dri and it worked great! I found a couple other polishes I thought were pigmented enough, no go! So now I’m on the hunt for some good stamping polishes and I think the Insta Dri is going to be my GoTo polish for this art. I started with a simple design from the five plates included in my kit. I added the coconuts just for fun! I did have trouble stamping but I’m pretty sure I need more appropriate polish for the task. I’m just showing you the best nail!


Pictured above is the stamping kit I got from the Born Pretty Store. It retails for $8.37, free shipping worldwide, no minimum order and your order ships from Singapore. It takes about three weeks to arrive in the US. This kit came with a two ended (large and small rubber ends) stamper, a scraper, 5 design plates and a plate holder. No instructions are included but all you have to do is a search on YouTube and find several instructional tutorials. Now, excuse me while I shop my polish stash for some good stamping lacquers!

UPDATE about the blogger review program:
UPDATE!
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.
