Review - Born Pretty Store

Hello Princesses!

Today I'm going to be talking about some super cute nail accessories that were sent to me for review from Born Pretty Store! Born Pretty Store is a great place to get inexpensive, yet cute little nail accessories, nail polishes and even makeup.

These little bow and heart charms are super cute for an ornamental accent finger, but be wary if you have long hair or tend to touch your hair a lot, because these will either rip your hair out or rip the charm off your nail.
They sit quite high off the nail, but the little dangling heart is curved so it fits the nail well! The bow section is the worst bit because it juts out from the nail. The charms are absolutely gorgeous and amazing for a short wear time (out for the day or at dinner) but honestly, quite impractical. I used Zoya's Gaia for the white polish and some cute Etude House nail stickers for the gold lines and flowers!
These little nail bows are incredibly well put together and well thought out in structure. The base is slightly curved to fit the nail, so they don't fall off the nail when banged slightly (but will still pop off if caught in tangly hair!). These are the nicest little bow gems I've ever used, not too big that they hang off the end of my finger, not too small that they're not recognizable as pearl studded bows.
I used OPI's I Vant To Be A-Lone Star as the pale blue base of this manicure and I think it looks super cute and princessey - I have it on again with my short nails for tomorrows MAC Cinderella release! (I'm so excited!).
I love these little wheels full of rhinestones and pearls, they're super easy to use and really space efficient! They aren't very portable though because the clear lid is quite loose and tends to roll around quite easily.
This wheel comes with large heart pearls, medium sized oval pearls, and little water droplet pearls. These only come in cream rather than a white, which is a little irritating since all of my other pearls are white in colour, which does make these pearls look a little dirty and discoloured. I think the water drop and oval peals are gorgeous, while the heart pears are a little too big for my nails and tend to get knocked off quite easily. I used Revlon's Gumdrop and OPI's Matte Top Coat to create the base of this manicure!
The last things I received where these awesome nail wraps! These came in a set of five, even though I really only wanted the four tartan designs. These also came with a standard black emery board and orange stick (which I neglected to photograph because they were quite boring). My ring fingernail betrayed her family today, so now I have short nails for these swatches. My apologies!
I'm slightly irritated that the black and white decals are not black and white, but black and clear, because I don't want to paint five layers of a white polish on specifically to make these decals look good - when I use decals it's because I'm  being lazy and want a pre-made nail design to wet and apply. I was pleasantly surprised by the yellow tartan nails, they remind me of the movie Clueless! ^.^
