Born Pretty Store Review: Nail Wraps

Happy Saturday my loves! Hope you had a great week! I'm excited for this long weekend and all the awesome sales going on. But, before all that happens, I have one more great item from Born Pretty Store to share with you- Nail Wraps with an Elegant Blue Flower Pattern, item #22602.
Click here to see and/or buy this item.

These full nail design stickers are just wonderful. Super easy to use, complete instructions on the back, and look great on! I've always had issues with nail wraps like this, but these were the first I've been able to successfully use.

I really love how these worked out! Quick and super easy. My only recommendation is that if you plan on using them on all 10 nails and you have wide nail beds like mine, you should buy two so that you can guarantee you have enough to fit each nail.

Overall, I highly recommend these nail wraps. They're easy to use and look fantastic! Perfect for a quick mani or some added bling to any mani.

Born Pretty Store Review: Holographic Nail Foils

Greetings my polishes lovelies! Hope your week was wonderful and you're enjoying your weekend! Today I have another item for you from Born Pretty Store, Holographic Nail Foils, item #21772.

Click here to view and/or buy this item.

This particular set has silver holo graphic leaves on it. Perfect for fall! It comes package in a small, easy to open container. There is quite a lot of product in these tiny containers, which is great as you may have a few trial and error experiences. I will start this review by suggesting you acquire proper foil glue before using these. I followed the instructions provided on the website, which indicated that it was possible to use just regular nail polish. While this was somewhat true, I can't help but think proper glue would have lead me to be much more successful with this. Here is the result of my first attempts using the foils:

Polishes used: Loaded Lacquer Coffee Collection Mystery, Dream Polish Smooth Gem Base Coat, KBShimmer Clearly On Top Top Coat

As you can see, not a very successful attempt. Frustration set in quickly as you can imagine. What did transfer looks cool, so I kept hope alive and changed my game plan a bit.

Polishes used: Candied Apple Polish Burnt Rasberry, Creative Cuticles Nail Polish Megan, Dream Polish Smooth Gem Base Coat and Gem Glam Top Coat

Success! After talking to some fellow bloggers and getting their advice, I changed how I applied the foils. I created decals by painting a thick coat of the base polish over the design I wanted, and let it dry before peeling it off and applying to my nail. So much easier!

The pinky nail decal unfortunately lost the holo effect when I applied a layer of top coat to expedite the drying time. Lesson learned! Overall, the design is very cute and I like how it looks on the nail. 

This decal I used no top coat at all. However, I believe some of the holo effect got rubbed off in transition. Overall, it's a nice design and I like how it looks. 

This is a very cute and unique product. Another great and relatively simple way to add nail art. The roll has a lot on it, so plenty to do a lot of manis! I plan to try these again in the future with proper nail glue. I truly think this will make a huge difference and make using them much easier. 

Have a fantastic weekend my polished lovelies!!

Born Pretty Store Review: Gold V Shape 3D Nail Stickers

Happy Monday my lovelies! Hope your weekend was fantabulous! I have another goodie from Born Pretty Store for you today. The Gold V Shape 3D Nail Stickers, item #21776.

Click here to see and/or buy this item. 

These nail stickers are easy to use and are a great way to quickly add some extra oomph to any mani! As you can see it comes with a couple different designs on the sheet, enough for a few different manis. Simply choose the design you'd like to use, and stick it onto your nails (after your mani has fully dried).

Polishes used: Velvet Rope and Gold Glitter Prototype by Bliss Polish.

I love the added fancy factor these stickers added to my mani. I highly recommend these stickers. The V shaped ones are curved at the bottom to match your nail curve! This was an added bonus I was delighted to find; made placing the stickers much easier.

Bliss Kiss™ 3 Day "Get Naked" Challenge

Happy Hump Day lovelies! Hope you're having a fantabulous week! As you know from my Instagram posts, last week I did the Bliss Kiss™ 3 Day "Get Naked" cuticle oil challenge. Basically what the challenge is is you apply the Bliss Kiss™ cuticle oil to your nails and cuticles frequently for a minimum of 3 consecutive days. This challenge helps strengthen and condition your nails and cuticles, adding back all the essential oils you need for strong and healthy nails and cuticles. I have to say I am absolutely floored by the results.

Hi lovelies! Welcome to my blog! I'm new to blogging so please bear with me lol. I will be doing entries about the nail art I post on my Instagram, @_the_painted_fox_, and also reviews on some of the products I use. I'll most likely post once or twice a week until I get used to writing up reviews and such. Hope you stick around for the long haul! See you soon! xoxo
