Water Decal Nail Stickers - A Review for BornPrettyStore (Plus Discount Code)

Hello dear readers!
This manicure that I am showing you in this post is featuring some Water Decals Nail Art Stickers which were provided to me by BornPrettyStore.

There are 12 pieces in this set and it comes with a small nail file. There are directions in the back of the package showing the process of the decal application.

12pcs Cute Design Water Decals Nail Art Stickers Decoration Manicure - 24 patterns

So here is what I came up with:
I know there are written directions in the package as well as on the website; however, this is what I did with the product:
  1. Align the nail with the decal and choose the best size (width) for your nail.
  2. Cut the desired decal - I had to size them down a little because my nail beds are narrow and I had to crop the decals so they would fit my nail.
  3. Dip in water for 10-15 seconds.
  4. Remove the thin, plastic decal from the paper backing and place it on your dry nail - make sure the decal is not soaked in water prior to placing it on your nail.
  5. Once the decal dries on the nail, file the excess off and make sure you have smooth edges. Be careful not to file your nail along with the decal.
  6. Apply a top coat.
 I applied 3 decals on my nails and I chose a pink polish to pull the manicure together. Here is a full hand picture:
 I zoomed in into my thumbnail so you could appreciate the amount of detail in these kawaii popsicles:
 So now the review:

  • There are 12 pieces per package at a very good price ($1.99)
  • They are easy to use and there is no messy application - NO smell, glue, scraping, waiting time, etc.
  • BornPrettyStore offers 24 different patterns for these decals; the combinations are very many.
  • I had to manually size the decals to fit my nails (which took a couple of minutes)
Overall, I am very pleased with these decals. I really love this manicure and it has lasted me over 3 days, which is remarkable. I would definitely recommend you to try these for those days when we don't have time for stamping, sponging, and such artsy activities.

The direct link to these decals is here and the store link is here.

And if that's not enough, BPS provided me with a 10% off coupon for my lovely readers, use it at the time of purchase:
Let me know if you use these decals :)

Thanks for reading!

I Tried...

Hola amigas!
I have been neglecting my blog, as usual, but I had been busy and stressed out about a few things - good things. I don't want to get into too many details because I don't want to jinx it, but I am extremely happy :D Hmm, just in case, I didn't get engaged, I am not getting married, and I am not pregnant... Just saying!
Moving on to my nails, I have been practicing my free-handed strokes and swirls and all that... It's not my forte. I saw THIS tutorial in the blog It's all about nails by Radi. I did it a bit differently but it is totally her design. It is obvious, I need to practice more!
