Born Pretty Store Review: Triangle Stencils

*Disclaimer: this item was received for review. All opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced by anyone or anything.

Hi everyone!

Today I have another review from Born Pretty Store for you - if you mised my previous one, you can check out the lovely thermal polish here.

But right now I'm reviewing these stencils:

  • What?: 10 pieces of stencils, in various patterns.
  • Price?: These cost $3.19 for 10 stencils.
  • Where can you get it?: Here is the item link on Born Pretty Store.
  • What do I think?: I'm not convinded by these, unfortunately. The triangles didn't wome out as crisp as I had hoped.

You can see the stencils I got here - I picked NS01. There are 8 other patterns to choose from.

For this design, I used Barry M Mustard as the base colour (my boyfriend brought this with him from London for me!! (okay yeah I gave him a list of polishes to buy for me lol) I love this colour!) and the black is Only You Black Passion. I used one pattern from the stencils - the one you can see on the top right in the picture above.

The stencils work as follows: you paint your nails in a colour, let it dry thoroughly,then place a stencil on your nail and put polish in top of it. Then you pull the stencil off and top coat it.

Unfortunately the stencils didn't work as good as I had hoped - as you can see from the result. They wouldn't lie completely flat on my nails (especially at the top part of my nails they curved a lot) so the triangles aren't very neat. Maybe these would work better once I've had some practice, or maybe if I used them diferently (for example: only on half of my nail) but for now, I'm not convinced by these.

Did you use stencils like this before?

  2. I had stencils once and they didn't look as I wanted them too on my nails either; my nails are very curved too and the stencils didn't stick well, so... But I like the whole design and the mustard nail polish is great - I wear clothes in mustard shades :) The triangles look OK :)

  3. I don't think they look too bad at all! I guess stencils can be a little tricky though, I've had problems with polish seeping underneath them before. I am so happy to see you love Mustard too! When I swatched it myself there were so many mixed reactions from this colour but its so different! Xx
