Hi! I haven’t posted in a while! Sorry about that. Anyway, I have an exciting post to share with you today! About a month ago, I received three different items from the Born Pretty Store to review. I got a sheet of gold nail stickers, a small container of nail studs and a small bag of triangle nail decorations.
The first manicure that I did was this Pantone Color of the Year inspired gradient with gold accents. I used the triangle nail decorations, item #20314. The triangles are a little hard to pick up because they are so tiny and thin. However, because they are so thin, it’s easy to bend them to fit the shape of your nail. I wish I realized that before I placed the triangles on my pinky nail and applied top coat because they did stick up a bit. I was able to bend the triangles easily once they were on my index and pointer fingers by gently pressing them down and rolling my finger back and forth at the same time. Just make sure your nails are completely dry before you start to press down! You don’t want to ruin all of your hard work by smudging your nail polish!
Here is the manicure that I did using the nail studs that I received, item #20579. I really like this item because the container is filled with nail studs of different shapes, colors, and patterns to choose from! As you can see, I chose the pink and black speckled square studs because I thought they were so unique! They’re easy to pick up with a dotting tool and apply to your nail with a little dot of top coat. I don’t use nail studs all that often so I’m glad there are a variety to choose from. This way, when I want to use them, I will have something new to choose from each time!
Here is my manicure using the gold nail stickers, item #21776. The sheet came with single chevron stickers, as seen on my nail in the picture above, and heartbeat stickers. I absolutely loved using them because they are so cute and easy to use! All you have to do is peel the sticker off of the sheet and place it on your nail. Be sure that the surface of your nail is nice and clean before putting the sticker down or it will not stay on. I suggest using a top coat over the sticker to help keep it on your nail for a longer period of time. For my manicure, I didn’t add a top coat because I loved how my base (OPI ‘I Couldn’t Bare Less!’) looked without it. After a couple of hours, my sticker was starting to lift around the edges.
I hope you enjoyed this post and got a little nail inspiration! I’m looking forward to using all of these items in future manicures. Remember to use my coupon code SICAX31 for 10% off your order! They have a ton of different nail art supplies to choose from. Talk to you next time!
