Born Pretty Store Review: Water Decal Roses

*Disclaimer: this product was provided for review. All opinions in this blogpost are my own and are not influenced by anything of anyone.


Hello!

I have another review for you today! I got to review some more items from Born Pretty Store, the big online shop for an abundance of nail art items and other things too. I picked these cute water decal roses because I thought they were very pretty.


This product consists of one sheet of water decals, with several designs of roses on it, as you can see in the picture below. There are 20 decals in total on the sheet.


Water decals are really easy to use, and there are instructions included on the back of the package. You have to paint your nails, cut out the decals you want to use, and remove the plastic film. Then you plunge the decal into warm water for 10-20 seconds, carefully remove it from the paper it was on, and put it on your nails! When everything's dry, you have to seal it in with top coat.


I followed these instructions (besides the blow drying, I didn't do that), and I had no problems at all with the decals. I used luke-warm water, and at first I held my decal in it for 14 seconds. I noticed the decal wasn't coming off the paper, so I held it under water for another 7 seconds and it came off really easy after that without any issues.

Placing the decal onto your nail is easy too, as everything is a bit wet so you can slide the decal around to position it where you want it. I chose to place the decal at the bottom of my nail, and the decal was just big enough to go from the left side of my nail to the right side.


The decal has a transparent border, so you can put it on top of any polish colour you'd like. I chose white, because I loved the look of white and the delicate roses. I used FM1 by D'Orleac as a white, and Miss Minty by Gosh for the mint colour. I also added some chevrons with acrilyc paint and a golden stud to finish the look.


The final verdict: I really liked these decals. They are super easy to use, even if you don't have a lot of experience with water decals (like me - this is only the second time I'm using water decals). They are easy to place onto your nail, and you get a pretty flower design with minimal effort :)

Price?: These decals cost $2.86 and you get 20 of them on one sheet. There are different designs with roses on the sheet. Born Pretty Store offers free shipping worldwide. Shipping took a month this time - the two previous times I ordered from BPS the items took 3 weeks to arrive.

Where can you get them?: You can get these decals from Born Pretty Store here.

Discount?: You may remember from last time that I have a discount code for Born Pretty Store! If you want to order something, just use the code XDX31 for 10% off on your order.



What do you think of these decals? I think the design of the roses is very pretty, so I'll definitely be using these again! If you have any other questions, let me know!

Thanks for reading! :)
