Born Pretty - Plastic Bows

I had so much fun with my family last week, I forgot to blog! I'm going to babble about my life for a bit so skip down if you just want to just know about the nails. I won't take it personally I promise. =)

My husband had a four day weekend which is very rare (he's a workaholic). We had fun hanging out at the house. He has been asking me to play an online game with him for a while and I finally caved. It's called Rift if you're into that sort of thing (it's free). I'm not a gamer but have played them in the past so I gave it a try. We have been playing together every night after dinner which is usually when I blog (while we watch tv). It's actually pretty fun and totally nerdy but I'm ok with that. I just need to blog earlier in the day now. 

As for family, we celebrated the 4th with his family on the 3rd and with my family on the 4th. It just happened that way so I got to hang out with everyone. I went to see World War Z with my hubby and I actually liked it. I'm not into zombie movies but I'm into Brad Pitt so I went and I was pleasantly surprised. Sitting through movies is really hard on my body and it usually takes a day to get back to my normal pain after I dare have any fun. Stupid body. 
I thought I'd stop neglecting my blog and get a post in tonight. I've had this in my queue for a while now. So long in fact that I can't remember which Zoya I'm wearing and it's really really bothering me. I really think it's Zoya Mickey but it's hard to tell. What do you think it is? 

On top of the mystery Zoya is two thin coats of Lynnderella Connect the Dots and Seche Vite top coat. Then with a dot of nail glue, I added the adorable bow from Born Pretty Store which is what I'm going to review in this post! 

Let's talk about the cute bow shall we?

The bows are from Born Pretty Store, here. There are several different patterns that are attached to this item. If you just add it to your cart without picking which pattern you want, you will get something you may not want. I did that very thing with the next item I will be reviewing and I was bummed. 

In the product description, it say that these are stickers. They are not. At least this pattern isn't. They are made out of hard plastic and are not flexible. I like that they aren't stickers, they are a lot sturdier than I expected. I used nail glue to apply it and it didn't go anywhere. I'm slightly amused with how much I love these because I'm not a pink fan (I might be converting).

Now I know that these aren't practical and that's ok! I wore it for a day and then I popped it off and put it back in it's container. Reusable is good. If you snag it, it will most likely just pop off. If you lose one, there are more! 

You get nine bows for $2.69 which is a great deal in my humble opinion. Use my coupon code for an extra 10% off! Oh, and did I mention that shipping is free? Sweet.

So, I've gotta know...would you rock a big bow on your nails?

  1. Its so cute! I would rock it but only for a little while though. I'm not a huge fan of stuff sticking out on my nails.

    1. I totally agree! It's fun but just for a little bit. =) I could see it getting snagged in my hair. lol

  2. I have some bows from born pretty store - I get LOTS of compliments whenever I wear them, and I love that they are reusable! The downfall: every time I run my fingers through my hair my hair gets stuck in them! Shampooing my hair isn't the best with those bows on my nails, either - but I deal with it because they're so adorable! ;-)

    1. The things we do for beauty right? =) I want to buy all the bows now!
