Stamping plates from Born Pretty Store and sweater nails, hello.
Do let me whine a wee bit. I’m currently all bundled up in bed, very sick, very poorly and very medicated. Of course, I had to catch the nastiest infection in the last 2 years smack in the middle of my uni finals.
THANK YOU FOR NOTHING, UNIVERSE.
I felt so bad and feverish I actually went to the doctor (not a fan.) – who, upon SEEING me said: ‘Antibiotics it is.’
HE ONLY LOOKED AT ME. Yeah, pretty sure I was a coughy, teary-eyed, swollen zombie.
Anyway. He gave me a rockin’ dose of antibiotics (normal dosage is 125mg, he prescribed 500mg for me. If it doesn’t kill me, it will have to cure me.) and forbade me to leave home. BUT, oh but, I have exams and finals and things that are not in my GP’s jurisdiction.
Anywho. I’m showing you my sweater nails today and the stamping plates that finally arrived from Born Pretty Store.
They were kind enough to let me choose some for a review – and of course, they didn’t disappoint. I’m a huge fan of Born Pretty Store, have been pretty much since I started blogging/painting.
They’re affordable, they have a HUGE selection of goodies, and, that’s important for the terrible P&P-Scrooge in me – free worldwide delivery. I know.
It’s February. I do realise. But I’m rocking sweater nails – I’ve always wanted cheesy, Christmassy sweater nails, preferably with a reindeer or two and now I have them! Oh the joy. I’ll be damned if a silly thing like February stops me. I’ll wear Christmas sweaters if I want to. Instead of hearts and lovey-dovey things. sucharebel.
I also have a dream of owning and wearing an actual Christmas sweater, because, for some reason, it’s never been a part of my 23 years on the planet… Why? I’m boggled, but I’ll get there, I’m sure. One day.
Remember when I told you about the two polishes I got myself for Christmas? Well for this, I used both.
* China Glaze Trendsetter
* China Glaze Budding Romance

This stamping plate – QA57 – is a repeat of my previous experiences with BPS plates. They stamp with no problems whatsoever, well etched and quirky designs, just how I like ’em. Take a look, if you want to, and if you do decide to order, you can use the 10% off code Born Pretty Store gave me: UZG10 for a discount.
I really want to try BPS’ water decals too, but every time I’m stalking their site stamping supplies catch my attention.
Do you like Born Pretty Store? Have you tried their stamping plates?
