Full Nail Water Decal Review from Born Pretty Store

Hello Loves!

It's time for another Born Pretty Store product review. We all know that BSP has great supplies for all types of Nail Art, and today I chose to use these cute decals.

Here is the photo (from the Born Pretty Store site) and link to the product:

As you can see, there are 24 different designs to choose from, so I had a hard time selecting which one I wanted to try, but I decided to go for something fun and ended up with these :)





The pattern was really fun, but since it was so busy and colorful, I decided to stick with two accent nails, my other nails are polished with Essie - Borrowed and Blue.

Per the instructions, to use these decals, you need to clean your nails, soak the decals in warm water, slide onto your nail, press flat/smooth out, file away the excess and seal with topcoat. I have to admit, this isn't exactly how I used them. I tried following these instructions, but the decals weren't sticking to my bare nails, so I decided to add a clear base coat and while it was still tacky I slid the decals on. This method worked much better, although the base coat sort of "ate" the decal on my ring finger (as you can see in the last pictures). 

Overall, I like these decals using them "my" way, and will be doing more accent nails with them in the future.

Pros:
-24 different patterns to choose from!
-Free Shipping Worldwide on all orders from Born Pretty Store
-The decals slid off the paper backing easily when wet and I was able to file off the excess without much work
-The decals could be cut up into stripes and used for accents as well!

Cons:
-The decals didn't work exactly the way the instructions suggested, but as I mentioned above, I was able to solve that problem with a base coat.
-Although there are 24 shades to choose from, none are plain. Now for me, this is not a problem at all, but I know some people like decals or nail shields in plain creme colors.
