Born Pretty Sticker Stencils

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!

Finger Paints Yellow Bikini

So far this is the only yellow in my collection. I tried China Glaze Solar Power which is beautiful but not with my skintone. Yellow Bikini works well though. This is 3 coats. It was a little thick and goopy but I hear that is how most yellows behave. The ring and pinky have Nail Tek Foundation II for a matte effect. Doesn't look so great with this polish. I was wearing this and I put on a red skirt and a blue shirt. I kept looking in the mirror trying to figure out what was so strange, when I finally realized that I looked like Wonder Woman going in for a day at the office. I changed clothes.
Thanks for reading.

Masquerade Ball

Ashley and I were recently invited to a masquerade ball. We weren’t planning on attending and then inspiration struck. I had 2 very similar dresses with great colors. We each wore one and matched our nails to the 5 different colored stripes in each dress. It was fun!

From pinky to thumb on both hands in the picture below China Glaze for Audrey, China Glaze Entourage, OPI Blue My Mind, Finger Paints Yellow Bikini and China Glaze Recycle, all with Nail Tek Foundation II as a matte topcoat.

See they match the stripes!

Here are Ashley’s colors. From pinky to thumb on both hands Color Club Blue Light, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin' Jade, OPI Red, China Glaze Solar Power and China Glaze Recycle. Also with Nail Tek Foundation II.
