Christmas Nail Art and BornPretty Review

Merry Christmas VanessaTaaffe.wordpress

It’s the final week before Christmas!  What better way to embrace the festive spirit than a Christmas nail art review and tutorial? For the past week I have been using BornPretty’s Christmas 3D nail stickers.  The stickers come in colour and theme co-ordinated groups on a plastic backing. Some of my favourites included Christmas trees, jolly Santa’s and snowmen. These stickers are extremely long lasting, easy to use and look lovely on your nails. I work in a hairdressing salon part-time and my hands are constantly in and out of water.  After two days of work these appliques were still perfect! 

How to Use

  • Paint your nails with a base coat. When dry paint them any colour of your choice.
  • Once fully dry apply the Born Pretty stickers by peeling individual stickers from the plastic backing. This can be difficult at first but I found it best to bend and pinch around the area of the sticker you want to use and the edge will lift from the backing.
  • Use a pair of tweezers to lift and place the stickers on your nail. The smaller stickers can be trickier to work with so tweezers are the easiest way to apply them.

  • Seal in your design with one or two applications of a topcoats. Glitter polish is also a great alternative if you want to get an extra few days out of your design.

  • You can go for all over design or just apply some to your ring fingers.
  • For the best results pair the silver stickers with dark colours and the greens, blues and whites with lighter colours or a white so the stickers stand out on your nails.

  • These work best on slightly longer nails but I tried them out on my Auntie who has shorter nails and they still worked out well.
