Born Pretty Store French Tip Floral Nail Decals*

I have always been a bit stubborn when it comes to nail art and feel like I must do everything free hand, but with so many people using water decals recently I thought I had better see what all the fuss is about!

These pretty, floral French tip decals* are from Born Pretty Store, and I'm wearing them over a base of Barry M's Rose Hip.




Each pack comes with 14 stickers, enough for one full manicure. Some of the decals are very big and you are very likely to need to cut them down to fit your nails like I did.

The instructions provided are easy to follow, however I still found the decals a little difficult to apply and to get them to stick, so I added two layers of top coat to ensure they stayed stuck down. This could be because it was my first try at water decals, hopefully it will get easier with practise!




After three days of wear they were still in the same condition as when I first applied them which is great! If I had kept them on longer I reckon they would have lasted about a week before starting to look worn.





Overall I really like the look of the decals, the floral print is delicate and pretty, they are also very reasonably priced. I'm going to put the application difficulties down to my lack of experience with water decals, so this is something to take into account if you too are a decal newbie!

  2. Ouuuu! These look absolutely divine!!! And I'm just the same! I feel as if I have to draw them or paint them myself or I feel like I'm cheating. Bit silly really but just seeing how well these transfer and look really makes me want to try them too!

    1. It was good to try them but I still feel like it's cheating so I'll be sticking to freehand I think! x
