Paris is by far my favourite city! Well, of all the cities I’ve visited… I loved the look of these Born Pretty Store Nostalgic Eiffel Tower Nail Stickers*. The packet contains 14 self adhesive stickers. Randomly enough though, upon closer inspection, two of these stickers include the Colosseum in Rome and Tower Bridge from London. Despite these two, three others include various perspectives of the Eiffel Tower and the final two are Paris themed.
To apply, select your desired sticker and remove the transparent cover. Align the bottom sticker to the top of your nail. Stick to your nail and shape accordingly. I used a nail file and a pair of scissors. To seal apply a clear coat of polish. I applied my stickers to my thumb and ring finger and paired them with BarryM ‘Almond’ polish on my index,middle and baby finger.
Sadly, I found these stickers quite hard to work with. I thought they were quite big for my nails. To make the most of the picture on the sticker your nails would have to be extremely long and wide. Mines are by no means short but they’re not overly long either. I would recommend using these on much longer nails to make the most of the design. These stickers did last well on my nails. Seeing as I have my hands in a lot of water I was impressed with the longevity and they didn’t chip.
I have reviewed other BornPretty nail art stickers before which I loved. I think the length and width of these stickers prevented me from making the most of them.

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.
Born Pretty Nail Stickers with Revlon ‘Sangria’
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.
