Born Pretty Store Review - Paisley water decals

*Press Sample*

Hi all!

I'm here again! I've been under the weather, the flu caught up with me unfortunately. I've been doing my nails less frequently, or simply wearing a single polish with no nail art. The mani I'll be showing you today has been sitting on my pc for a few weeks....

The polishes:
  • Kaleidoscope by El Corazon - Thermo - t-24
  • Essence - Stampy polish - white
  • Lucky 13 Lacquer - Elemental Ward (top coat)

I also used two Born Pretty Store products, first stamping plate BP-L003 (item 17921) which I also used in this post here.

The second Born Pretty Store product is a sheet of paisley water decals, item 17032 pattern DS-107. Both Born Pretty Store products were sent for review.

I started with a base of the Kaleidoscope thermal, 2 coats, which is supposed to change from grey in warm state to old rose in cold state. I will make a separate post for this polish, but the change is not that apparent. Using my white stamping polish I stamped the quatrefoil like pattern on top of my base. After that dried I added the water decals. I simply cut them out separately, let them soak in water for 10-20 seconds and then use tweezers to place them on my nail. BPS water decals are good quality and easy to use. I sealed everything in with a coat of Elemental Ward.

I do like these water decals, they have a lot of detail that is not easily reproduced free hand (not for me at least).

I really enjoyed this mani and I still have plenty water decals left on the sheet for future mani's. I think I used about a fifth of the sheet for both hands.

Born Pretty Store kindly gave me a discount code to share with you all! If you use code BBL91 you get 10% off your purchase! You can find their nail art products here! And they offer worldwide free shipping!

Love, Brethil


  1. I have that stamping plate too. Looks so nice here with the decals.

  2. The decals are so pretty on the stamped base you've made. The whole mani has a vintage touch in my opinion. Love it!
