Born Pretty Store Vinyl Nail Stencils


Born Pretty Store Vinyl Nail Stencils
These are the stencils I used for this manicure, they are from Born Pretty Store and only cost $1.99

 I decided to use the stencils only on two nails. After making sure the polish was completely dry I carefully applied the stencil and painted over it and then very carefully peeled it off, once it was dry I finished with top coat.
I really liked the lined stencils but I found that with the hearts the polish was getting under the stencils and leaving the nails looking messy.

Born Pretty Store Palm Tree Nail Decals

For this manicure I used these decals from Born Pretty Store, they are only $3.69 and there are enough in each pack to do quite a few manicures.

I decided to start with a pink and orange gradient and then added the decals and sealed with top coat.
I had no problems with the decals peeling off of my nails and the manicure lasted around a week before I changed the design.

I really like that they also include a few bird decals in the pack, they definitely make the nails look even better.

Bonprix Blogger Competition Nail Art


Bonprix Blogger Competition Nail Art

Bonprix Blogger Competition Nail Art

For the Bonprix blogger competition I decided to do a manicure based on the red Alice Tea Dress.
I chose this dress as it is nice and simple so can be dressed up or down easily.

For my manicure I decided to do my nails based on how I would wear the dress at a Christmas party. I started by painting my nails with China Glaze Cranberry Splash to represent the dress, on my middle finger I added a heart shaped rhinestone and some smaller round rhinestones to represent a statement necklace, and finally on my ring finger I painted my nail with Revlon Ritzy to represent a clutch bag I have that is black with black and silver glitter. I then finished with a topcoat on all of my nails apart from my ring fingers as I wanted to keep them looking slightly textured like the bag.

Sparkly Nails Relaxed Chevron Nail Stencils

Sparkly Nails Relaxed Chevron Nail Stencils

I love using nail stencils for a quick and easy manicure and these ones from Sparkly Nails are great. They are only £1.25 for 60 and delivery in the UK is only £1.50. They have a great range of vinyl stencils so if you want to try them it is definitely worth checking their website, they also have a huge range of other nail art products. Delivery is also really fast.

This is the manicure I created using them, you need to make sure your base colour is completely dry before using them. After applying them I painted each colour and then peeled off the stencils and sealed with top coat.

It is even faster if you are only using one colour over the stencils as you can just paint it on over the entire nail. I sometimes find that if I peel the stencils off while the polish is still wet I get uneven lines, so I usually let the polish dry a bit first. I know most people peel them off while the polish is still wet though so its worth trying both ways to see which one works best for you.
