Born Pretty Store Water Decals

This item was a gift.

Yay, I finally painted my nails again! Last week I received a gift nail mail of Born Pretty Store water decals item number T115. I decided to go ahead and give these a try while I didn't have any official nail products to review and since I love nail decals so much! :)

I wasn't sure what polish to use as an undercoat for these but looking at BPS's Web site gave me the idea to cut these in half so now I can use them again for another manicure some time. Yay! It also gave me the idea to use Chrome Girl Bedroom Eyes as the base. Bedroom Eyes is a gorgeous metallic shimmer which almost matches the blue of these decals perfectly. The texture is kind of odd, it makes me think of magnetic polish consistency. Its also quite sheer so I had to use 2 coats to get to a nice opacity. I also apparently got a little bit smurfed, which I didn't realize til looking at the pictures today. Oh well!

These decals are super cute and applied really easily. I messed up a couple of the decals because I used either too much top coat or the wrong kind of top coat. I was working on my nails with company over and completely forgot to test these for top coat issues first so my Chrome Girl top coat did melt the first decal a little bit. After that I switched to Fantasy Makers Go With the Glow just for something different. It did matte down the color a little bit but hey now this glows in the dark so that's just awesome!

Here's a closeup so you can see the cuteness.

 Glow, baby, glow!!

Here's one somewhat blurry look at these cute decals in more natural light. These decals are only $2 and if you cut them in half as I did you can do two full manicures (or lots more if you just do accents!)

If you use my coupon code, you can get them for even cheaper of course :)
