Double Review - Hit The Bottle stamping polish & Born Pretty Stamping plates part 2

Hi loves! Another double review today featuring 2 more shades from Hit The Bottle stamping polish kindly sent to me by Maria from Hypnotic Polish. And since I still had one of my Born Pretty Store plates unused, what would make a better combination than using them together?

Hit The Bottle Absinthe Minded

Hit The Bottle Paint The Town Violet


Let's take a closer look!

Hit The Bottle Absinthe Minded

Hit The Bottle Absinthe Minded is a bright green shade. I'll be honest, this was the hardest color for me to use and find an image for. But I think it looks great against the creamy black base, such a stand-out! Great formula, easy to use and very opaque as you can see.

Born Pretty Store BP-L008 has been shown before, but it was the only plate I felt had an image that would suit this green stamping polish. This image feels like tropical leaves to me! There is definitely more surface to cover with a stamp like this, but the design still looks nice and crisp.

Hit The Bottle Paint The Town Violet is a lovely metallic purple shade, and for this one I chose to do a stamping decal look. The thicker lines in the design picked up nicely and everything looked very crisp. 

Born Pretty Store BP-L003 is a plate with 15 large designs, very nice! As you can see both bold and finer lines picked up nice and crisp so that's great. And I like how many designs you get on one plate - it's currently on sale for $2,94! 

Overall conclusion
Just like in my last review I'm impressed by both the stamping polishes as well as the image plates. The quality is good and the designs came out perfectly. Out of the stamping polishes Paint The Town Violet is definitely my favorite, but that leafy designs certainly looks great as well!

Which of these 2 looks would you rock on your tips? Tell me in the comments!
Hypnotic Polish is a European based indie stockist that ships internationally. Besides Hit The Bottle stamping polish, they also carry Smitten Polish, El Corazon, Colors by Llarowe, Dance Legend and many others.

    I'd rock them both. Although on the leaves I'm more like to stamp some kind of animal or flower on top. Hit the bottle has some really pretty colors!

  14. Every single time I see the polishes I curse myself for having a job that gives me summers off. I would buy each and every one if I could. They are just gorgeous and I really like the color combinations you used.
