Nail Art Inspiration using Bornprettystore.com Nail Stickers & Decals

Its no secret that I’m obsessed with bornprettysore.com…. I’ve tried their nail decals (check out my review here) and now I’m playing around with their nail art stickers. Just like nail decals, nail stickers are an easy and cost effective way to have super fun nails. I got my hands on a super adorable pair full of candies and sweets.

bornprettystore_nailstickers_sweetsI created this super cute mani by applying 1 coat of white polish followed by a glittery pink polish. I then used the “Sweets” nail sticker set.

bornprettystore_sweets_nailstickersI also thought it would be fun to share this mani I did using the “I Love You” set  (although they are nail decals and not nail stickers)

bornprettystore_iloveyou_nailstickersHow To Apply Nail Art Stickers

1. Apply base coat

2. Apply color or colors of your choice. Let dry completely.

3. When nail polish is super dry peel off sticker of choice using a tweezer and place on desired nail.

4. Apply top coat to seal in design.

The Verdict

These nail stickers get a 5/5 from me.

Although they may not be as thin as nail decals they are still on the thinner side compared to other brands and styles I’ve tried. They lay relatively flat on the nail and last a long time (about a week) before fading. They are so easy to apply, even easier than nail decals as it doesn’t require water. Plus there are so many awesome designs to choose from for less than $1!!! Check out their selection here and I also have a discount code for you guys so use BKYW10 at checkout for 10% off.

Whats your favorite way to incorporate nail art stickers into your designs?

Mix and Match Nail Art using Depend Cosmetic GelLack

Hey Guys :)

I’m sure you already know by now that I’m totally obsessed with the Depend Cosmetic GelLack polishes and LED system, the color selection is amazing, the final results and longevity is ten fold of traditional nail polish and it’s pretty budget friendly.

Currently I’m pretty into doing mix and match nails, it gives me a chance to wear several shades when I can’t make up my mind (because they’re all soooo pretty!!). Plus it’s a fast and effective way to spice up your mani with pretty little effort.

Transfer Foil Fun

So I haven’t posted in a while because I’ve been super busy…but I finally have time to share more of my nail art adventures :)

Ive been having a super time experimenting with transfer foils and after a lot of practice, and finding the perfect top coat (which was difficult as every topcoat I own strippes the color or cracked the foil) I think I’ve finally stared to get the hang of it.

(To those who maybe dont know what transfer foils are, the application of the design or pattern is nothing like those adhesive nail foils like blix, you transfer the pattern with this taky glue. I will do a post later on the items needed)

Anyways, there is super range of designs and colors available out there…I find the best websites are dollarnailart.com and naildelights.com, you can also find great deals on ebay. They have holographic, solid matte colors, and designs of all sorts.

What’s cool about them is you can cover part of the nail or the whole nail if you like depending on where you place the adhesive glue. This type of nail art is definitely the easiest and most cost effective way to get minx-a-like nails.

Well heres a look  at  a few of the transfer foil manicures I created :)

1-BinkyD-Foil-Blue&Flowers_NailArt

This is a cool floral design where the backing is transparent (where there are no flowers) so the effect can be changed up depending on your base color. In this mani I choose a baby blue.

5-BinkyD-Foil-Flowers&nude_NailArt

Here’s a mani I did on a friend. Its the same kind of flower pattern as before (instead the flowers are yellow and red). In this one I used a nude color as the base.

5-BinkyD-Foil-Black&Diamonds_NailArt

Heres a mani I did using a black flower foil to do a side french sweep. I used a light glittery pink as the base color. For a little more bling bling I added a few rhinestones where the polish and foil met. BTW this is a great way to cover up any mistakes when doing a normal or sweep french tip :)

5-BinkyD-Foil-Black&Diamonds&Blue_NailArt

Baby blue glitter base color mixed with side sweep and full nail flower foil. Plus some rhinstones for fun :)

4-BinkyD-Foil-Silver_NailArt

Another mani I did for a freind. It’s this really cool holographic silver, unfortunately the camera did not capture the coolness of this foil. The light reflects soooo awesomly on the foil, its super!

6-BinkyD-Foil-Camo_NailArt

I just did this camouflage one…its pretty cool :) The application was super good as well (sometimes they can be a bit fidgety if the glue is too wet or too dry). I used a nude as the base coat in case anything didnt transfer to hide any mised spots.

I just bought a bucket load of foils recently so I cant wait to try them all. So look out for another post on foils soon, plus a how to, and best products.
