Pick A Polish: Ethereal Lacquer - Violet Frost (plus Born Pretty Store plate BP14 review)

Provided for review*

Hello lovelies. How have your Mondays been? Mine has been pretty busy but work went quite quickly so it's not so bad!

I've got another two in one post today. I'll be showing you Ethereal Lacquer - Violet Frost for Pick A Polish along with a review for plate BP14 from Born Pretty Store. I've swatched this polish on the blog once before, but this was my first time wearing it as a full manicure. This happens way too often with my stash!

Violet Frost is a pale lilac holo, with a slightly dusty quality to it. The holographic effect is quite subtle, but still noticeable enough. My swatch shows two coats with topcoat. The formula was good, I had no issues with the application. This is a really gorgeous polish, it's nice to have a holo that isn't totally in your face.

Plate BP14 is quite a mixture of images, with four full nail images and four smaller ones. The smaller images stamped the best, I could get all of them to transfer nicely. The full nail images were a bit trickier to work with, as you can see I haven't got them all to transfer perfectly, but I would say they are all still usable. I really like the triangle image, I want to use that soon!

Over Violet Frost I stamped using Konad - Black

I was pretty happy with this manicure overall, this image is really lovely. This plate has such a range of images, I'm sure there will be something on there that everyone likes. Considering the price, it's pretty good quality too. 

This plate is available here, currently for just $0.99 with free international shipping. Don't forget you can use my discount code STAX31 to get 10% off your order.
