Born Pretty Store Review: Nail Art Water Decals

*Nothing to disclose.*

Evening everyone!  I know most of you are probably out doing fun things with your Saturday night but I have a quick review for you. While checking out  Born Pretty Store's $0.99 sale a few weeks ago, I found these fun water decals and, even though they weren't on sale, they were just so pretty I had to give 'em a try!

The set I purchased (G074)  contained 15 decals, with 6 different designs.  In person, the designs were just as pretty as they looked online, always a good thing! 

I used one decal on my thumb and middle fingers.  I wanted to do a sort of skittle manicure, so I didn't end up using a decal on each nail.  These decals are really easy to use.  You trim the design you want to apply from the decal sheet and float it in water for 10-15 seconds.  While the decal is soaking, drip a little water onto the nail you're applying the decal to as well.  Then (I used tweezers) pick up the wet decal and place it, decal side down, onto the surface of your nail.  Press firmly and slide the backing off the decal.  On my first try, which is the middle finger on the above photo, I did have a little placement issue, but on the whole I didn't have any issues with these decals.

This shot is my middle finger on my right hand, which came out a lot better than my left so I wanted to show it off a bit :)  I am considering purchasing the XF1265 set as well.  The designs look the same but seem like they have a bit more contrast, which would be the only problem I had with these designs.  The colors didn't come across as dark as I'd hoped.

These decals retail for $2.86 on  Shipping might take awhile, depending on where you live, but in my experience, bps usually gets to my door faster than expected.  Has anyone else tried these or other decals from bps?  What did you think of them?

Thanks so much for reading!
