I recently tried out my very first Born Pretty nail polish with chameleon polish #32. Today’s polish is from the same line. That polish is a duochrome with holo glitter, while BP Holo #25 is a pure scattered holo in a rich brick red. For my swatches, I used three thin coats with a layer of Out The Door topcoat.

The formula on this polish is great. The polish is fairly thin, but doesn’t pool into cuticles, which is good, because I did get a small amount of cuticle staining from the pigmented red. I opted for three coats because when held up to sun, I was able to see some patchy areas. For removal, I would recommend putting a cuticle oil or product on your skin, and then hold your polish remover pad down for several seconds before swiping toward the free edge. That technique helps me prevent as much staining as possible.
The cost on this polish is far too expensive in my opinion. At roughly $11 USD* for 6mls, you can find indie holos that will stun you for much less.
*Edited – The price on this polish has recently dropped. It is now priced at $5.99 USD.
