Hiya lovelies! Today I have the second part to my Born Pretty Store review. In part 1 (here), I showed you a stamping plate, and today I'm showing you the second nail art product I chose - some neon water decals (here). I've only ever tried water decals once, and it didn't go very well, so I was really interested to see if I got on better with these ones.......
So, these are the decals I chose (pictures are from the BPS website) As you've probably noticed, the colours in these photo's are pretty off. The purple is in fact, pink, and they're all a bit lighter and brighter, but the designs depicted are accurate, and at £3.67 they are cheap.
The last time I tried water decals, (cheap ones from ebay) I had major issues with the edges curling up, and being really obvious on the nail. I was actually able to peel one of the decals off, even after 3 coats of Seche Vite! These were very different though. The film they're printed on is really, really thin, and good luck finding the edges once they're on. I was even able to layer multiple decals on the same nail and you still can't see the edges. I used 4 each on the index and middle finger :D
I decided to do a second mani with the decals, as I couldn't wait to try them again. I've been completely put off water decals after the ones I tried initially being so rubbish, that I was just itching to use the funky neon eyeballs in this pack......
So, overall, I was really impressed with these water decals. They've shown me that they can be really good, and aren't all like the ones I tried before. I was really annoyed that my thick top coat damaged them, but I have acquired some thinner since I painted these, so I'll be trying them out in another mani soon enough. When I do I'll edit this post to include a link.
So, that's all from me today, but I'll be back tomorrow with my next A-Z of Polish post. We're up to X this week, so it should be interesting to see what on earth we're actually going to find! :D
