Born Pretty Store review & nail art: Halloween water decals

*press sample*

Hi all!

Today I'm going to show you the last item Born Pretty Store sent me. These are Halloween water decals, item #9346 and design K099 (they have 3 choices!). This is a small sheet with 5 different images, and there are 4 copies of each image. Below you can see the packaging with a ruler (in cm).

And this is the decal sheet without the packaging, the images are small enough to fit one of your nails. Obviously not each nail, I have a very narrow little fingernail and would not be able to fit all the images on there.

The polishes I used:
  • L.A. Girl - 3D Effects - Black Illusion
  • China Glaze - 1148 Tart-y For The Party
  • OPI - NL N34 - You Are So Outta Lime!

I started with a base of You Are So Outta Lime! and sponged on a gradient with Tart-y For The Party. I have wanted to do a bold gradient for ages and I really love the outcome. I cut out the water decals I wanted to use and soaked them in some water for 15-20 seconds. I lifted them off with some tweezers and applied them on my nails. If your nail is wet (from water, not polish!) it is easy to slide the decal into place. I dabbed it dry with a tissue to remove the water. On my tips I added some grass leaves with a nail art brush and Lime. My index finger just had the pumpkin face, so I added a pumpkin outline with Black Illusion and also added some spiderwebs. I sealed it in with G&G HK Girl top coat. My ring finger nail just has two coats of Black Illusion and top coat.

My thumb nail got the Happy Halloween decal and I added some spiderwebs with a tiny spider. I think the spider really finishes this nail off nicely.

I hope you liked my mani, I'm still super happy with that gradient. Anyway, if you want this sheet of decals, it is item 9346 and design K099. I am not sure you'll be able to get this before Halloween, as the usual delivery time is 3 to 5 weeks (mine took 3,5 weeks), but you could get it for next year!
