It's Beginning to Look a lot Like... Autumn!

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

 Time for some more nail art! I did two manicures yesterday, and today I'm going to share the first one with you.

I got these really cute autumn leaves water decals from Born Pretty Store and they're just so perfect for this time of year. If you're not familiar with Born Pretty Store, they have a whole mess of fun nail art supplies, and other items as well. Best of all, their shipping is free and they do ship worldwide.

I think the first thing I love about these decals should be pretty obvious just from the picture: you get a ton of decals all on one sheet. I only did one hand, but I still have enough decals that I could do almost 10 full manicures if I put these on every single nail. That's pretty awesome!

For this manicure I used 1 coat - YES! 1 coat! - of Sation Blue Sky's the Limit, and 2 coats of Avon Garden Green on my accent nail. Then I used Shany nail art polish #16 to draw in some tree branches. Last step I just added the decals and then applied top coat.

I am so happy with this manicure - it's definitely my favorite that I've done in quite awhile. This one was inspired by another of my characters so it just has a lot of meaning for me which might be why I love it so much. But regardless, I think it turned out really well.

These are by far the best water decals I have worked with to date. They only took a little bit of time in the water and then they were ready to be applied. Much faster than other decals I've worked with. They do have a tendency to stick to your nail once you've placed them, so you have to be careful of where you put them down because once they're in place it's not easy to move them.  What I loved best about these decals is that I had almost no top coat problems. I just had a little bit of a melting issue on the accent nail and that was my fault because I just used a wee bit too much top coat.

This sheet of water decals is currently $2.46 on Born Pretty Store's Web site.
