Bornprettystore Tribal Water Decals Review!

Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have this mani using tribal water decals from to share with you! These were SO easy to use (definitely saying something for me since I am usually terrible with full nail decals of any sort) and I even did a live demo on my Youtube channel to show you how they work! If you'd like to see the live demo of these, click below!

Before I get into how I did the mani, let me show you how these little guys come packaged: 

Item number 21576
 They come inside a little plastic package with a cardboard surround to help prevent them from bending. You simply remove the film packaging, cardboard and plastic front of the decals and you're left with just the sheet of decals themselves. You'll want some scissors so that you can cut them out to fit your nails better, and a container of room temperature water similar to this:

To complete this mani, I first started with a base coat to protect my natural nail - I use Nail Magic. Once my base coat was dry, I cut out around the decals I wanted to use to make them fit better to the size of my nail. Using tweezers, I dipped one into my water and held it there for about 15-20 seconds until it started lifting off of the paper backing. I took the paper backing off and placed the decal onto my nail and sort of smoothed it around until I had it where I wanted it. The nice thing about decals like this is that you can continue to manipulate them until they dry. I started the smoothing from the middle of my nail and outwards towards the tip and cuticle so that I could remove any bubbles. Then I molded the excess around the tip to the shape of my nail. After it was mostly dry, I started cleaning up the excess with pure acetone and my cleanup brush to make sure it was nice and neat. I added Indigo Bananas LiLoo (Lithium Loo) on my other nails. Then I top coated with Seche Vite. Here's the final result:

 Interested in picking these up? You can find them HERE! If you've been toying with the idea of trying some full nail water decals from bornprettystore, I can definitely recommend these. I was thrilled with their performance, especially because I am terrible at free handing tribal prints! Don't forget to use my code, PPPQ10 for 10% off your order of originally priced items. :)
