Review of Born Pretty Store Embossed Texture stickers over Clinique Party Red

*PR Sample
Hello lovelies,

Hope you'll all well! Today I'd like to show you an experiment but it is also a review. Every time I went to a hobby/craft shop I've been checking out scrap booking stickers but never really purchased them because they seemed a bit big for nails. But I've always wanted to try them mind and had that nagging feeling somewhere in the back of my mind. So when I was approached by Born Pretty Store if I'd like to try and review their stickers, I was very pleased to say yes!

I have combined two ways of using the stickers - the first one is to stick the stickers on top of the painted nail and the second one sponging silver nail polish over the sticker and then removing it.

I have used Clinique Party Red as a base colour, A England Camelot for the sponged accent nail and Born Pretty Store Embossed Texture stickers.

At first glance this seems like a great idea. the stickers look pretty, they are small enough to go on the nail BUT they just don't adhere properly at the edges. I just couldn't make them stick and the ends kept peeling off. I've tried wet polish, nail glue, polishing over it, nothing has worked :( The stickers are too thick for curved nails and they don't keep the shape when bended. I guess I'll have to use them just for decorating photo album. I'm disappointed to say that I can't recommend this product for use on nails.

EDIT: Apparently the stickers work better with UV gel nails so if you're wearing those you might find these stickers will work or you.

  4. I have that problem with stickers on my nails as well. I find they lift really quickly which is a shame because there are so many pretty stickers out there!

  11. I have these too and found the same problem--my nails are really small and have a high arch. I bet some people will have more luck with them though; people with wider flatter nails will likely enjoy them! Also, maybe on the big toe for a pedi--I'm trying that next with em.

    I like your idea of using it for a stencil too :) make do with what you can eh? x

  12. I grabbed a pack last time I was in Hobbycraft but have yet to use them. Maybe I'll just pass them over to my nan for her card making...
