Hi everyone! I have another Born Pretty Store review for you today 🙂 I really enjoy doing these posts. If you’re a regular reader, you already know that I’m a big fan of Born Pretty Store products and that I shop there often for my nail art supplies. Today I have some 3 D nail art stickers to show you. When I opened the package I was really surprised by the sheer size of the sheet I received. Have a look how big it is!There is a large variety of patterns to choose from on this sheet. Have a look:
So many! Stickers are probably the easiest way to get some funky nail looks going. They are easy to use, you don’t need to wait for them to dry and they stay on your nails if you seal them in with top coat. Some of these stickers are too big for my nails, but I do often use stickers on my toes since I can’t be bothered to take the time to do any art on my toes, so I’m sure some of the bigger stickers would work for that. There are also quite a few lines of stickers that are attached to each other. This is nice because you could use them to do a french tip on your nails OR you could cut them away from each other to use them as individual patterns, which is what I did for my mani. Let me show you what I came up with:
How beautiful does that look? I started out with my usual Tip Top base coat to protect my nails. I painted 2 coats of essence kiss me, freddy on all of my nails. Kiss me, freddy is a shimmery mint green polish. The finish is hard to describe. It isn’t a foil or a glitter, maybe somewhere in between. It is a really pretty polish and is unique in my collection. I let the base dry well. Be patient! If you stick down stickers on a wet or tacky base they can wrinkle or sink into the polish and you just end up with a very messy look. I peeled the stickers off the clear backing and applied them with a tweezer. This allows you to place them exactly where you want them with ease and you don’t touch the sticky part of the sticker with your fingers, which can cause them not to stick down well. I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite and voila! A quick and easy manicure 🙂 These stickers also removed quite easily. I’ve worn very stubborn stickers before, but these just required a little extra rubbing.
If you’re paying close attention, you’ll notice that I used one of these stickers for my Mother’s Day nails as well. I used on of the heart stickers on my middle nail as an accent. Here’s a photo reminder:
Someone actually told me that the heart sticker looked like a stud. 3 D effect indeed! I have difficulty with large studs in the middle of my nail as they are not pliable and don’t mold to my c curve, with stickers that is completely eliminated, so it is nice to get the effect of a stud, without any hassle.
