Born Pretty Store Review - Half Pearls

My first post for this month's round of Born Pretty Store reviews is going to be on this wheel of half pearls.

The pearls come in three sizes, so I decided to do a row of them down each nail to show them all side-by-side. My base is L.A. Colors Candy Sprinkles. I think own every L.A. Colors polish I've ever seen, but this one is new. I don't think they have done glitter in a colored base before (at least not that I can remember). So for a whole $1, it joined the rest of its family, and I thought it would be a good base for these cute pearls.

I've been on a matte topcoat kick too, so I decided to add one, and this mani went from "eh, cute" to "O.O I love this mani!!!" instantly! The colors that reflect off the pearls with all the muted colors in the polish... ugh! *dead* I think I ended up wearing this for at least four days! Now that says something!

It's soft and girl, yet crazy and fun! <3 <3 <3 <3

So anyway, all the info on these pearls: the three sizes are, according to the website, approximately 2mm, 2.5mm, and 3mm. Each size fills four sections of the wheel, and they are currently $4.64 USD. If you use ANL91 at checkout, you can get them for 10% off, too. Plus, I was able to remove my pearls carefully, without any polish stuck to the back, so they can be reused. So for under $5, these pearls should last me many years!
