Born Pretty Dazzling Starry Magical Multicolored Shell Glitter: Review & Swatches

This polish has a rather long name, but I can sum up everything you need to know about it in just two words: "Buy me!" This is my first time trying actual polish from Born Pretty Store, one of my favorite one-stop nail shops, and let me say, it did not disappoint! If you're a fan of polishes like Essie's Shine of the Times, this is like that, but on crazy, color-changing steroids.

There is a whole line of these jaw-dropping iridescent flakies to choose from (see them all HERE). I chose #4. For $11.79, you get not only the flakie polish (which has a clear base), but a perfectly coordinated base shade too! I only have the flakie for review, but trust me when I say I think this beauty would look dazzling over just about anything! There are so many different flakie colors at play here and I'm sure you'd see more or less of certain colors depending on what you layered it over, which is always a fun experiment! Here I'm wearing one coat over Essie Bobbing For Baubles, a deep navy creme.

Pictures do this polish zero justice. Color shifts can be a tricky thing to pick up on camera (at least for me), but in person, it is so vibrant and multifaceted. I can see pink, orange, red, yellow, blue, green and teal. Even in dim indoor lighting, the different colors shift back and forth like crazy! It's seriously mesmerizing! Polish with caution, though; this is what I like to call a "car crash polish," where it can instantly steal your attention away from everything else! I have several other flakies in my stash and, gorgeous as they all are, this is the one to rule them all. If you love flakies, I'd say this is a must-have!
