Product: Matte Dull nail enamel in Pink
Brand: BK Nail Polish
Price: $4.36 (wholesale options available)
Description: This matte pink polish is perfectly girly and sweet, yet it possesses an undeniable cool factor due to its matte finish. For this nail design, I only used the pink polish on my tips giving the look a reversed French manicure in a heart shape, and also used it for the heart design on the accent nail. Because matte polishes dry very evenly and smoothly, I find it much easier to paint creative designs using nail polishes with a matte finish--fixing mistakes is so easy, just layer more polish on top and voila!
Price: $3.55 (wholesale options available)
Description: Easy to use wheel package containing 6 colors of 1.5 mm (diameter) flat back half-pearls, including white, pink, fuchsia, teal, apricot, and lavender.
Verdict: Great quality pearls comparable to other leading brands at a fraction of the cost. Perfect for nail art and decoration.
