Born Pretty Holo stickers and water decals
Today I want to show you a couple of things from Born Pretty Store.
The first thing up is cute nail stickers. You can find them here, and they look like this:
I don’t use nail stickers very often (insert meme here), but it’s not because I don’t like them, I just don’t generally need to. I do think it’s a cool and very easy way to spice up a polish if you’re short of time. These stickers are easy to apply – I didn’t use tweezers or anything, just my fingers, and it worked brilliantly. Take a look:
You can see that you can apply them over any colour you want, which is a huge plus.
Easy nail art
Easy to apply
No tools needed
I can’t really come up with any cons, sorry
Thumbs up for cute nail stickers from me!
Next thing up was a surprise to unwrap, to be honest. I knew I was going to receive water decals. And water decals is what I got. Take a look at this picture, and tell me if you can see why I was surprised:
You can find them here btw. Could you tell why I was surprised? If not, then take a look at the OPI bottle in the picture. The decals are huge! Each decal is big enough for five nails! I actually thought that they were big enough for a camel’s toenails, haha! Amazing!
Here’s the instruction:
So I started out with two layers of polish, namely the OPI on the picture: Alpine Snow. I also applied a layer of topcoat.
Then I cut one decal from the sheet, and I also cut that one decal into five, to fit the five nails on my hand. I removed the film and put one decal into the water. Shortly after, maybe 10-15 seconds, I could remove the paper and place the decal onto my nail. I repeated that step until all the nails were done. Then I removed the access water decal from the cuticles and the skin around my nails, applied another layer of topcoat, and I was done.
I’m going to show you a couple of pictures now, but please bear in mind that this is the first time I try all nail-decals!
Here’s the result of my efforts:
And another photo:
And here’s what it looked like before I cleaned up the mess around the nails:
Tip: Remove the film before you cut the decal into nail sized pieces. It’s almost impossible to remove once they’re that small.
I like the designs
Cool way to get multicoloured designs on the nails
An alternative to nail stickers
It’s a challenge to clean up around the nails afterwards
