Another post about Born Pretty Store today! Hope you’re not growing tired of reading about them. This time I purchased a few items I have been eyeing up for ages and I bought a few gifts as well since the holidays are coming up.

I purchased 100 fimo canes from Born Pretty a while ago and that set came with 2 wheels. Not nearly enough to have all my fimo canes sliced up and on display so I purchased these. Now I can continue slicing up my fimo canes and store them in these wheels. I have my work cut out for me! Pun intended!
Two wheels with 2mm half pearls. In one wheel I have purple, pink, blue and white and in the other there’s yellow, orange, pink, green and white. I love using these, they’re really pretty and easy to use. I already had a half pearl wheel with 3 different sizes but they’re all white so I’m glad to add some coloured half pearls to my collection!
These are steel balls. I have these in gold and silver from Born Pretty too, I thought these would be the same size but they are definitely smaller. They are so tiny they got stuck inbetween the wheel itself and they got mixed up a little bit too. They definitely seem harder to work with than the other steel balls I have. Haven’t tried yet but we’ll see!
These are elliptic shaped rhinestones. I loved the other rhinestones I got from Born Pretty and since I didn’t have this shape yet I thought I’d get them too since they were such a bargain. They are very pretty and I honestly can’t wait to use them!
A cuticle pusher and a set of 4 nail art brushes. Close-ups below!
These are the brushes. They come in size 0#, 00#, 000# and 0000#. I purchased a set of nail art brushes on eBay last year and the thin brushes weren’t great quality. These are so much better! I can honestly recommend them if you need new nail art brushes. They are really thin and are so easy to work with! These made my life so much easier and they were less than $1 a piece. Amazing!
Close-up of the cuticle pusher. One side you have the cuticle pusher itself, the other is used to clean and remove excess skin. I read a review on this over at Cosmetic Cupcake (check her blog out she’s awesome!) and she stated it didn’t work for her because the pusher wasn’t curved enough for her nails. I have to say I didn’t experience this issue, fortunately for me it worked!
Set of 12 mylar sheets. These jars make me so happy! I love looking at all the colours. I’m not sure what I’m going to use them for exactly but I cannot wait to try them. I was thinking franken topcoat? Who knows!
These are called bumpits. You can create a hairbump with these, either at the back of your head or at the front. I’ve not been able to try this yet but they look like they could work well. I also absolutely loved the plastic bag it came in! Isn’t it cute?
I thought these feather earrings were really cute and cheap so I couldn’t resist. They sell them in many colours but I chose brown/orange since they would blend with my hair. They look really cute on!
Isn’t this hairpin the most beautiful thing you have ever seen? I cannot get over it honestly! Unfortunately it will only be in my possession for a few more weeks because this is a New Years gift for my grandmother. We share the same favourite animals, owls and peacocks! I’m sure she will treasure and love this as much as I do.
This pin is also a gift for my grandmother. I have to say the quality of these pins is astonishing. They are heavy and really well made. They have this pin in different colours. You just state which one you want in the order comments when checking out. I am slightly disappointed the larger rhinestones are plastic instead of clear orange as the picture on the website but it looks nice nonetheless.
This is a gift for my mum. Even though it’s a hairpin she will probably use this to pin her scarf together or to wear it as a brooch. She’s absolutely in love with it so mission accomplished!
This was a gift to myself! I got all these hair accessories on sale a few weeks ago and this beautiful little thing was half off at $1!!! I don’t wear hairpins often but I simply couldn’t resist when I saw this cute little bow. Only downside is you can see the pin itself if you don’t tuck it under your hair properly.
Lastly these were two gifts they added to my order! I suspect because I ordered my items during their one year anniversary celebration! The keychain light is really awesome and it’s super bright! The lace nail stickers are very cute as well. Thanks so much Born Pretty!
I’m honestly very happy with all my items. I had a feeling things would go wrong with this order but all the items arrived in perfect order. I did experience some difficulty with shipping, it took a month to get here whereas the previous times I receive my item within 2 weeks. They lost my $3 tracking number due to computer error so they offered to refund it. I e-mailed with Sophia from Customer Service and she was very helpful and friendly so that’s definitely worth mentioning I think.
