Born Pretty Store Review - Floral Water Decals

Hi guys! Today I have a nail art look I created with a floral water decal item 17639 decal XF1273 design that I received from Born Pretty Store for review. For my base I used Pretty and Polished Travelin' Down Dusty Rose, a dusty pink with soft, holographic sparkle. Born Pretty Store offers a large variety of nail art items at great prices and worldwide shipping. This is the third item I'm reviewing out of the four I received.

First off, I really love the base I used for this so I wanted to share a couple of swatches.

To create this very simple but elegant floral nail art design, I started with 3 very thin coats of Travelin' Down Dusty Rose. I love the subtle holo shimmer in this polish, it's very soft and lovely. Pretty and Polished has an excellent 5 free formula, it's very easy to control, not to thin or too thick, and it dries to the touch in about 20 minutes, faster if you use a fast dry topcoat. I used 3 coats to ensure a perfectly even coverage for photos but the average person can get away with just 2. I wore this as a regular manicure and only used 2 coats in my cindy hand.


Up next I took some decals, I used these from Born Pretty Store, item 17639 decal XF1273. They have a one stroke flower pattern, I think they are peonies but I'm not 100% sure.


To use them, remove them from the package and cut out the image you want, then remove the plastic covering and soak the decal in water for about 30 seconds. Remove from the water and then simply slide the decal from the paper backing with your fingertip. Make sure your nail polish base coat is dry, wet the surface with a bit of water and place your decal on top. These decals are really sturdy, as long as you keep the nail surface wet with water you can reposition them as needed. I found the design to actually be too small for my nails once I placed them, so I cut them in half and then re-placed them.

Once you're happy with the placement of the decals, add a quick dry topcoat to seal and protect the design. I used Swift Sparkle Topcoat from Pretty and Polished, a glossy, quick dry, 5 free topcoat.
