Here is what I chose to review:
Let me start with the studs, which are fool proof to apply. I sort of messed up with the decals, but I'll get to that. The studs came in a wheel and contained a nice mix of items, from stars to diamonds to squares to dots in both gold and silver!
For the base color polishes, I used the creamy Me Couture collection by Barielle that came out in 2014. The purple, above, is Soho At Night and the blue, below, is Moda Bleu.
I applied them using a dab of nail glue, which I had here at home. BPS did not send any along, so keep that in mind when you order. You can also use clear nail polish but I recommend glue for a longer lasting hold.
The bases for these swatches are also from the Me Couture collection by Barielle. The grey, above, is Taupe Notch and the neutral is called Vintage Gown.
Pretty cool, right? Next, I was sent a package of what I thought were sticky decals. Well, turns out they are water slide decals meant to be used on the fingernail as a whole or cut in pieces and used as accents. Honestly, I destroyed a couple of them before I realized this, LOL, and they didn't come with any instructions or information.
My learning curve will tell you to get a small cup of room temp water. Cut the shape you want and submerge in water for a few seconds. I usually push on the decal between my thumb and ring finger and if it is ready, it slides right off. If it doesn't slide off easily, submerge in water again.
Once I figured out they were water slide decals, I decided to cut them up and use them as accent pieces with the studs for a feminine meets punk rock look, shown over Boho Chic by Barielle. What do you think?
As I mentioned, Born Pretty Store offers free shipping on every order! Since it is non-US based, it takes a couple weeks to get your items, so be patient! They offer a huge variety of items from polish to decals to studs to jewelry.
