OMG, do I have news for you!

I got the most interesting email this morning. Apparently, Born Pretty is having quite an interesting promotion at the moment. They're offering the cutest little stamping plate to their customers for free.

Now, I know. Most of the time, "free" means free with purchase, free when you buy a certain item or set of items. When I read the email, I thought it was a great idea, and wrote back asking for the special requirements. I got the surprise of my life!

Today, "free" means just that- free! So, since the special folks at Born Pretty have decided to give my readers a 10% discount just for reading my blog, why not take this time to order a little something to try them out? Add in the free customer appreciation gifts and you're getting one heck of a deal!

Wait, gifts? Yes... gifts, plural! First of all, you can get a nail art stamping plate that has nine cute patterns, including a butterfly, a cat, beautiful flowers, a set of grapes, jumping dolphins and best of all- Hello Kitty! I've wanted this plate for ages, and right now it's being sent  my way... and I absolutely cannot wait! But I did say gifts, plural...

You can also pick up this sweet rhinestone wheel, complete with twelve colors of rhinestones, 1800 pieces total. They come nicely organized in a rhinestone wheel so that they won't get mixed up, in case you're neurotic like me about the colors getting mixed together. I've been known to spend hours separating multiple colors of seed beads that accidentally got mixed together.

The good news is that you don't need to pick one or the other. Add both to your order if you're interested and you can expand your nail art options! But there's more...

Ok, so this one isn't nail art related. But I can't help it, I'm a sucker for cute little goodies, and this fits that description! As another "thank you" to their customers, the folks at Born Pretty are offering these sweet little LED flashlights. And, if you add my code into the comments (Laynie20) you'll also get a little sticker with my discount code on it instead of the sticker shown! This is the perfect little keychain flashlight, for those times when you need a bit of light to find something in your purse or write something down. I'm looking forward to getting mine!

So, if you've been considering getting any nail art goodies, this is a perfect time! How do you get these sweet freebies? It's easy- simply retweet the Born Pretty tweet shown here. While you're there, follow them, and you'll be the first to know about new things and promotions. Then you can use the code in the tweet to get your free goodies!

And while you're there, why not pick up a couple of other things, to show your appreciation for them! They're super-nice, as well as having great prices. It's the perfect time!

Til next time...

I will one day learn to incorporate stamped designs into my nail art. I will!
See my disclosure statement for more information.


  1. Thanks for this post! I've already ordered the Hello Kitty plate, and I'm waiting for the coupon code for the rhinestones since they have to email that one.

  2. Hi Laynie! When I try to follow the twitter link, I get a "sorry, this page doesn't exist" message!

  3. Kellie- reload the page, I just fixed that! Sorry...

  4. Thanks Laynie .. how very observant of you to have noticed so fast. ;)

    PS. Love your blog/swatches. <3

  5. Ohhh, I wish I'd noticed it! No, a friend IM'd me and said it wasn't working! *laughs* I'd feel awful taking credit for that one!

  6. LOL - it's ok. You should feel better knowing that I just tried it and it worked. I got the cute little plate, even though I don't have even have a Konad Stamping contraption yet. LOL But, that little Hello Kitty face will motivate me to get one sooner than I'd planned. :) Thanks again!

  7. I'm glad it worked for ya. I can't lie, I've been itching to get the Hello Kitty plate for months now! I'm so excited to try it! Also, keep in mind you won't need to by the scraper, just the stamper. I use an old credit card instead and it scrapes better than the metal one, and doesn't scratch up your plates!

  8. That's awesome Laynie. :) I'm going to see if I can find directions for a DIY "fauxnad" stamping thingie before I spend $ on one. :)

  9. I don't know of any DIY stamper directions. It doesn't mean they aren't out there, I just haven't found them. If you have a racquetball, you might try using it to see if you can pick up the polish with it. If so, you might be able to cut a piece out and put it into a holder of some sorts... like a small prescription bottle or something. I'd test it, but I don't have any racquetballs!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I may not reply due to time constraints, but I read every comment and I appreciate them all!
