Born Pretty sent me some of their nail art sticker stencils to try out. These are a fantastic option for someone who has been frustrated by stamping & free hand methods.
You simply peel off one the stencils.
Then place it wherever you want on your already polished nail. You need to wait until your base is mostly dry. The stickers are re-positionable, so no worries if you don't get it quite right at first.
Apply polish to the design. Sticker stencils have a big advantage over stamping because you can use whatever polish you want!
Immediately peel off the stencil, add a layer of top coat and you're all done! Fastest, most foolproof nail art ever!!
At just $4.18 for 10 different designs, this set form Born Pretty is a terrific deal. I've used a similar product from smARTNAILS; they are much more expensive but offer a wider variety and the ability to choose only designs that you really like. Your choice as to which company better suits your needs. Born pretty does offer a ton of nail art options though. You can see other products I've tried from their store here & here.
I used Finger Paints Yellow Bikini for the base & Essie Chinchilly for the design. You can enter to win half of my Bron Pretty Sticker Stencil set in my current giveaway!
