Hi everyone! I have another bornprettystore review for you today. I waited really long for these items to arrive and was right in the middle of kicking off Christmas manis when they did. I just *had* to use these full nail water decals (purchase here) that I received to review. When I saw them on the site, I immediately fell in love with them and knew I HAD to have them! Now that I’ve used them, I totally want to order a back up set. Let me show you why 🙂I started off with an L.A. Girl base coat to protect my nails. On my index and pinkie nails I painted 2 coats of Design Turquoise and placed two 2 mm round neon purple studs (purchased myself – purchase here) near my cuticle. On my middle and ring nails I painted 2 coats of essence wild ways as a base for my decals. I cut the decals down to size and removed the hard plastic from the front of the design. I have forgotten to do this before and if you do, they won’t work. You will need to remove this protective plastic before placing the decals into the water. I just cut them into rough rectangles as there is no need to try and cut them to fit on your nail. These decals needed to sit in the water for a while before the came off of the backing easily. I put them all in the water at once and let them sit there while I completed some clean up. By the time I was done, they came off the backing easily. Once the white nails were touch dry I placed my decals. They stayed firmly in place once I removed excess water with a tissue and didn’t move around when I used acetone and a clean up brush to remove the excess decal from around my nail. These dissolved very easily using acetone and I had no problems with cleaning them up at all. I know my Seche Vite can shrink and cause wrinkles, so I used a regular non fast drying clear top coat over the decals and let that dry for a minute or two before sealing everything in with a coat of Seche.
Once in a while I do a mani that I really love and this was definitely one of those! These decals are amazingly gorgeous! I am a fan of both paisley and purple, so these are absolutely perfect for me. They were also very quick and easy to use with maximum impact. These decals are currently out of stock (I’m not at all surprised!), but bornprettystore have the facility for you to be notified as soon as they are back in stock.
