In the bag, there were various brands but for the most part, all of the polishes had really good coverage, with great drying time between coats and built very nicely to opacity. Some needed two coats while others needed three but I will let you know which were two or three coaters!

Born Pretty Store My Princess Swatches & Review

*PRESS SAMPLE*
Hey Loves!,

How goes it? I'm alright although I do wish that we could get more of a break from all of this rain that we have been getting lately. But I guess that I shouldn't really be complaining since rain is better than snow. It's just we had a lot of rain yesterday and we will be getting some later this afternoon. Anywho, today I have another gorgeous polish from Born Pretty Store to share with you. Keep reading for more! 

glamorousnails23.com

My Princess is a duochrome polish that shifts from purple to blue. It is honestly super gorgeous and I just knew that I was going to love it once I got it onto my nails. The polish did have a sheer first coat if you were going to wear it alone. On my pinky and middle finger, I wore it alone and on my ring and pointer fingers, I wore it over a black base polish. The formula was very smooth with good coverage and decent drying time between coats. My Princess was very opaque when worn alone by the second coat. Shown is two thin coats with a glossy top coat.
