Born Pretty Store Review: Rhinestones & Nail Decals

Hey everyone!  I'm back with another wonderful review from my most favorite nail art supply website, Born Pretty Store!!  They are so wonderful, as they sent me some more awesome goodies after my first review, here.  I can't tell you guys enough how much I LOVE this website, if you are looking for cheap nail art and a whole lot of variety, check them out!  They even have fast 2-3 week free shipping, gotta love that :) 

Here are the items that I received, below.  A wonderful nail art wheel filled with 400 rhinestones that include four different shapes:  triangles, rectangles, circles and paisleys.  The second item that I chose for review is a sheet of the cutest water nail decals that include images of different designs and shapes of bows, lace and also hearts! 

Rhinestones & Water Nail Decals
 The first thing that I wanted to talk to you guys about is the 400 piece 2mm/3mm Silver Flat-back Rhinestone Set that I absolutely love!  It's such a great deal on sale for only $3.40 and it includes four different shapes of rhinestones:  triangles, rectangles, circles and also paisleys.  There are 100 rhinestones of each shape, plenty for me to do soo many nail are manicures!  For the nails I did using these rhinestones, I decided to use all of the shapes and make flowers.  These were so easy to use and applied so well just using some top coat.  To ensure that your rhinestones are secure, make sure to apply two coats of top coat over your whole manicure.  They are SOO shiny, as you can see below!  I'm very impressed at how much they shine and how versatile this set is as it comes with four different shapes of rhinestones :)


I LOVE me some nail art decals!!! So I was so delighted to try out this sheet of Nail Art Water Decal Transfer Stickers that I also received for review.  The reason I love using nail art decals so much is that they are soo easy to use and you get so many different images on just one little sheet that you could use for so many manicures simply just using a small bowl of water! :) These are on sale on the Born Pretty Store website for only $2.86 and comes with a small sheet of bows, leaves, flowers, lace and hearts.  On the back of the package came with a set of directions you can use if you have never used water decals before since they are a little different from nail art stickers.  The images that came with this sheet are sooo cute and I couldn't help but to do a super girly mani using rhinestones and pearls that I also got from Born Pretty Store months ago!  As  you could see below, the decals blend in seamlessly with your nails creating a flawless look.

Born Pretty Store Review: Nail Decals, Stamping and French Tip Guides

I was absolutely THRILLED when BornPrettyStore contacted me on my Instagram account (@melinails) to see if I wanted to do a review for them for some nail art items!!! If you don't know already, BornPrettyStore is an amazing website in which you could purchase all kinds of things from nail art supplies to nail polish to makeup to jewelry to a whole lot more.  They are mostly popular for their immense selection of affordable, great quality nail art products.  Shipping is ALWAYS free from their site, which is absolutely something that I love because the cost of shipping for me is usually a make-it or break-it decision maker for me.  They ship from Hong Kong and shipping tends to take about 2-3 weeks.  

If you would like to read more about the awesome products I received from BornPrettyStore, check it out after the jump!

Freehand Flower Nails

Hey everyone!  I'm back today with some cute flower nails I did a few days ago.  Flower designs have become quite popular during the Summer, I love how simple but beautiful they can be.  Not to mention how easy they are to do!  The base I used for these nails is called Pastel Teal and its from Kleancolor.  It's a beautiful light aqua teal shade, I used two coats.  

With a thin nail art brush, I stroked on some green to create grass and I let it dry.  Once dry, I took a small blunt nail art brush and dabbed on some flowers in different colors.  I then added some white on the flowers to create a little more depth to them and finished it all off with China Glaze Fairy Dust.  Gotta love Fairy Dust, it's almost magical!  It's the finest scattered holographic glitter you could find and creates the slightest hint of sparkle.  

On my pointer finger, I decided to do something a little different and add some butterfly water decals!  I found these on eBay about a year ago,  I purchased a sheet of about 30 decals for only $2.25 and they're great quality and easy to use.

Hope you guys this post!  Stay tuned for more, I know it's been a while since I've posted but I do hope to share more with you in the future.  :)

My (2nd) FIRST Post!!!

Hi everyone!  My name is Melinda and I am starting my blog all over again!  In 2011 when I first starting getting into nail polish, I started my blog "MeliNails Blog" as an outlet for my passion in painting my nails and discovering new ideas for nail art.  I wish I had kept up with that blog but unfortunately I didn't. :(  I had left my blog in such poor condition with barely a post in 1-2 years that a couple of months ago I decided to delete it completely!  It was NOT an easy decision but I figured it would be best to start fresh.  

I'm at a new point in my life in which I am rethinking careers and so I'm left with some free time! What better time to dabble in the world of nail polish blogging than now, I'm so excited to write posts and post pictures and show you guys nail art!  

You may have found me on other social networks, I am quite active on Instagram, I post almost everyday on there!  I also have accounts on Twitter and Pinterest, check it out and don't forget to follow me.  Now that I'm back in the swing of things, you'll see me post more on there.  

I hope you enjoy my posts, leave comments on what you would like to see!
