Born Pretty Store

Christmas Nail Stickers

How are you all? Well I hope. How's you're Christmas preparations going, I've only just started lol and have finally purchased my first 2 presents!! I'm not normally this late in I'm starting but life has well... just been life!
So anyway sticking with the Christmas theme im here today with these holographic foil sticker from Born Pretty Store.
These Stickers come in so many different colours, all with the same designs. I have shade 16, a silver holo effect.
Now before I carry on I want to explain something to you all so you don't make the same mistake I did! You see the instructions say to peel the sheet off to leave the exposed stickers on the backing. I was trying for ages and thinking that the stickers hadn't been properly cut. Then I just happen to realise they had a clear covering and once you peel this off you can peel the silver backing exposing the stickers. So I took a pic to show you....
Now this is out the way I can get on with my post. On completely dry black polished nails and the clear backing removed, I was able to pick the stickers up with pointed tweezers. They are very thin, and need to be removed carefully. Once in place they stuck well and laid totally flat. The hardest one to place was the flower but using the sheet as a guide helped to show where each part went. I'm not 100% sure if these are foil but they felt like it to me so I used a water based topcoat to protect the finish.


As it was a gloomy full day it was super hard to capture the true beauty of the holo-ness. But I really like how these look. A nice size and plenty of each design to create many looks. Then I had a thought. I never completely removed the silver backing, and wondering if it could be used as a nail vinyl... I will try this and post on my IG if it works.
So for now please use my discount code for any order you make over on the Born Pretty Store website and don't forget to check them out on FacebookInstagram and Twitter.
Stay safe and much love....
