Autumn Nails.

Recently a lovely lady from Born Pretty Store sent me some really pretty nail art pieces which I was very excited to try out! 

Ive not really used nail stickers before, so I expected the application to be really difficult, but I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was. Personally I think they look so pretty! 

I was sent 7 small packs, most of which were flowers, which I had chosen, although one of them was little snowflakes and fawns - fawns are my absolute favourite animal! I shall be wearing these around Christmas time haha. 

Today I decided to use the flowers which looked the most Autumnal, because obviously we're well into Autumn at the minute; 

I decided to pair it with a white nail varnish, I think if I was to use a bold colour there would be too much going on, as the flowers are quite bright and theres a lot of them. 

I started by checking the instructions on the back of the packet, which I didn't understand at all. It was basically just a jumble of words, like someone didn't have much of an understanding of english, for example one of the instructions were; "Waterwet with a surface, ll turn pattern sliding surface moves to the satisfaction to shell of Angle" - so yep, that was reeeeeally helpful. 

I kind of just winged it, no idea if I did it right, but I tried to read between the lines of the instructions, and they turned out okay, so I think I did it right haha.

First of all I cut the pattern into small pieces to fit my nails, there was a guideline on the sheet, but my nails are tiny so I just cut where I needed to so I wouldn't waste so much. 

You then need a warm glass/bowl of water to hand, to apply them to your nails (once your nail varnish of choice is completely dry), dip the piece of card into the water for around 10 seconds, you then need to place it ontop of the nail, to which a thin film with the flowers attached will stick to your nail. It was almost like a really thin cling film, and it smells like the rubber rings you can buy on hot holidays haha. 

It stuck really well, but to be extra sure it wouldn't budge, I applied a top coat. I'm really impressed with how good it looks, I didn't expect big things if I'm honest, but it genuinely looks like I've painted the pattern on myself, wish I could actually take the credit for painting it on. 

I would 100% recommend trying the water sticker decals out for yourself, they have so so many different patterns to choose from, I found it very hard to choose!

Amazingly, the products are such a good price, ranging from $1.99 - $2.99, which for what your buying I think is a brilliant price!
