Born Pretty Store - Gold Nail Art Stickers

Yesterday, I showed you a mani I did using an adorable nail art bow from Born Pretty Store. I explained that there are different designs you can choose from that one item number. I also said that I made the mistake of not picking my pattern for the next item I had to show you. Be so careful when purchasing an item that has different options. If you don't choose, something random will come to your mailbox. I unfortunately made that mistake with this item. I wanted pattern #1 but ended up getting pattern #3. Now, this is a product review so I did not pay for this item. It was my fault for not reading carefully and not specifying what I wanted. I chose not to exchange the stickers and to work with what I got. I think it would be easier if each pattern had it's own item number but I should have payed closer attention. The moral of the story? Don't order online when you haven't had your caffeine yet (or something like that). Moving on. 

 For this mani, I used Zoya Jem and gold nail art stickers from Born Pretty Store. You can find these stickers (and others), here. I applied the stickers after my polish was completely dry and then applied two thick coats of Seche Vite to get a smooth surface. 

You get one sheet of the stickers in your order. As you can see, I had already started using them when the picture was taken. They arrived in a plastic package completely flat and undamaged. 

The stickers are sturdy and easy to use. I just lifted up a strip and cut the amount of pieces I needed from it. The adhesive is strong but not so strong that you can't rearrange the sticker on your nail if needed. I did use top coat on top of the sticker to make sure it stayed in place and to get a smooth surface.

Although it wasn't the pattern I wanted, I think I made it work. It's not my favorite mani but it's not my least favorite either. I'm sure there are a lot of creative things you can do with these but I had nail blogger's block. Is that a thing? Let's say it is. If you have any ideas, please let me know!

You can purchase these stickers for $2.98 (free shipping), here. Make sure you specify which pattern you'd like. If you'd like an extra 10% off, use the coupon code below.
