Born Pretty Store Product Review: KDDIS Cuticle Oil, Chinyoo Acrylic Paints and Palettes

Updated on June 15, 2012

Born pretty store has sent me another package crammed full of exciting and interesting nail goodies this month, and I wanted to share my thoughts on the products. I’ve used all of the products and also managed to do my two first one-stroke nail designs! I’m really excited about this shipment of goodies, so let’s get right to it.


KDDIS Cuticle Oil

I’ve seen other reviews of this cuticle oil online, and always found the brush applicator really intriguing. The container looks like a pen, and you’re able to push oil up into the applicator brush by turning the base of the pen. These cuticles oils also come in a variety of scents, and I received the apple one. Firstly, the scent is incredible. It’s subtle and very pleasant. The oil itself really surprised me. Usually, you could expect to pay far more for a cuticle oil of this caliber. The product sells for around $1.70 at BPS, so it’s great value as well.

I applied the oil to my cuticles and left it there. I wanted to see if it would absorb without me having to massage it in, and it did! I left it on for around 15 minutes and when I next checked my cuticles, the oil had disappeared. You can massage it in if you want to, but with the way this stuff absorbs, you don’t really need to.

It’s also crammed full of ingredients that must be really good for your nails. I noticed things like a vitamin complex, mango extract, safflower oil, and vitamin B5 as part of the ingredient list, so that’s pretty impressive.

Chinyoo Acrylic Paints

I’ve been dying to get into one stroke nail art, and when I received this pack of 12 acrylic paints, I couldn’t wait to try it out. The set contains some amazing colors, as I’m sure you’ll see in the pictures. With the selection you’re given, it’s really easy to mix custom colors for your designs. I did two nail art designs using these paints and a brush set I got from eBay, and the results were fairly impressive, considering those were my first and second attempts.

The consistency of the paints is just amazing. I’ve worked with some really ‘stiff’ acrylics, but these are smooth and creamy, so they don’t need to be thinned down very much. I also like the fact that the tubes are larger than some others I’ve seen, so I’m sure I’ll get further with these.

Plastic Palettes

These little palettes came in so handy when I tried my hand at one stroke. I received two of these as part of the shipment from BPS. I’ve used one, and also made some color swatches on it. What I like most about these little palettes is that they are small and compact enough to fit into my nail art kit without cluttering it up. I also love the design, because it reminds me of little flowers. It’s cute, feminine, and incredibly practical, so these nifty little palettes definitely get a thumbs up from me.

My Experience with BPS

I’ve received numerous packages from Born Pretty Store over the last few months, and I’m very impressed with how everything is handled on their end. Shipping is free worldwide, so that already saves a lot of money for those of us who live in out-of-the-way places. Packaging is always done really well, and all my items have arrived in perfect condition. Customer service is brilliant, and any questions I’ve had have been answered within 24 hours of me having sent an email.

Coupons, Freebies, and Giveaways

If you’d like to get some of these items, head over to Born Pretty Store, and use my discount code (ATELLW21) to get 5% off your purchase on the site. BPS regularly offers freebies and giveaways on certain items as well, so it’s well worth it to check out the site for any new specials or promotions.

***I have not been paid to do this review. BPS sent me the items above as free samples.
