Born Pretty Holographic Stamping Polish

Today I am reviewing Holographic Stamping Polishes sent to me by Born Pretty (Amazon Store)
There are 5 polishes in the set. They don't have names, just a number - 01 Silver, 02 Pink, 03 Red, 04 Blue and 05 Black
These are all very pretty polishes, lovely colours but not very pigmented so their use is slightly limited in terms of base colours you could use them over.
I tested them over black and white. They all stamped well but the contrast is not great.
All stamped nicely over white but the results were subtle and the silver barely visible. Not a problem for the coloured holos, you don't always want a full-on contrast mani and the stamping over white was pretty and delicate.
They did all stamp nicely over black too but the colour was pretty much lost. The silver stamped quite clearly but the other 4 showed very little more colour than the silver. The holo was pretty and although my photos aren't great I would certainly use them again, where I wanted holo stamping and wasn't concerned about the colour pay-off.

Here is the blue (04) over white, very pretty and delicate.

 This is all 4 colours, excluding silver as it didn't show up. Pink (02), Red (03), Blue (04) and Black (05)

This is Silver (01) over black, as you can hopefully see the stamping is clear and the holo is very pretty.

This is Red (03) on the top 2 fingers, Pink (02) on the bottom 2 but as you can see, although pretty there is barely any difference to the silver above.

    1. oh right, I imagine they'd all be nice top coats - they are very holo-y
