Gold Mirror Powder from Born Pretty!

Hi, everyone! The weekend is drawing nigh! So remember when I said I had to grab stuff for the kitties? One of those things was flea spray for the house. It comes in a Lysol-type can. $32 freaking dollars! Jeebus H! lol, I also found some nice clothes for the upcoming christenings…I was beginning to lose hope. Most of my weight gain is in my mid section, so when I find pants that fit my waist, they are super baggy in the legs and crotch. (Isn’t crotch a hilarious word?) I ended up finding a stretchy pair of tighter dress pants. Thank god!


Today’s post is about a gold mirror powder sent to me by Cynthia at Born Pretty. It’s on sale for .99 cents right now and you get enough for a few manis. It’s item # 40836.

So you can see in my pictures that it doesn’t look very mirror-like. That’s what happened when I put a gel top coat on top. Before that, it had a mirror shine. But I felt like not top coating it would be misleading and I didn’t want to do that to you guys. What I need to do is find a type of top coat that leaves it in a mirror shine state.

For this, I used the nail polish I already had on, which was Butterfly Dance by Northern Nail Polish. First I used a gel top coat. Then I used the eye shadow applicator that came with the powder. A little bit goes a long way! I got really nice coverage! I topped it off with the same gel top coat. I think next time I will try a regular top coat and see what happens to the mirror effect.
