*this post contains items that where sent for review*
Hi guys! Today I have a nail art look I created with 1.5mm circular flat back rhinestones (item #18324) that I received from Born Pretty Store for review. I also used China Glaze Strap On Your Moonboots and M Polish Starflower with my new UberChic stamping plates.

As most of you know (and if you don't then let me fill you in) Born Pretty Store offers a large variety of nail art items at great prices and worldwide shipping. I received 4 items to review for you guys, so be on the lookout for those in future posts soon.

The 1.5mm circular flatback rhinestones arrive in a small, clear, plastic cylinder with a twist off top. The rhinestones come in several different colors and can be used to create lots of different looks.

They are really easy to use as well. Once I was done with my stamping, I put a small drop of basecoat where I wanted the rhinestone to be and then used a dotting tool to pick them up and place on my nails. Afterwards, I sealed them in with topcoat.

Here's the finished look.

My base is China Glaze Strap On Your Moonboots from the Hologlam collection. It's a steely blue with a subtle linear holo flash. I have three polishes from this collection and I really like them. It's not an in your face, strong holo, but I think it's really pretty. I used M Polish Starflower to stamp an image from UberChic plate 1-03.

I wore the rhinestones for a full day and I was pleasantly surprised to see them firmly attached until I removed my polish. I also liked that they where still shiny even after applying topcoat to the manicure. I've seen complaints before about some rhinestones becoming dull after topcoating them.

    1. I still like your idea of using them as flower centers, this was just a little faster to make.
