Butterflies & Roses - Born Pretty Store Water Decal Review

*Some products were sent to me for testing and review, completely complimentary, from Born Pretty Store. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

When given the chance to try some products free from the Born Pretty Store I jumped at the chance. The first product I chose were these gorgeous gold butterfly water decals. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them!

A quick note: these butterfly decals are on sale right now!! Originally priced $2.86 you can now buy them for only $1.72. And even better - I have a discount code for you! Just use the code SBN10K31 at checkout for 10% off your order.

I already had the rose decals from a previous purchase. You may remember them from my Valentine's Day nail art. And my initial thought of how perfect they would go together was spot on!

The Born Pretty Store water decals are so easy to use. You start with a base color on your nails and let them dry completely. Cut out the decal you want to use - these packs come with a variety of different butterflies and roses so choose what you like best. Remove the protective plastic film and dunk the design into some room temperature water for about 10-20 seconds ... just long enough to let the decal become completely saturated and the design slides off easily at your touch. I then lightly wet a piece of paper towel and swipe it across my nails to wet them, laying the design over and positioning it into place. You can blot at the design once it's where you want it with a dry paper towel, lightly pressing to get out any air bubbles and to shape it around your nail. Once it's settled and dry, top it with a top coat and you're ready to go with some beautiful nail art and none of the hassle!!

I started these nails with Airy Berry, a lovely baby blue creme from my upcoming The Lights creme collection. This is 2 coats.

I chose various roses from the set and arranged them around my nails first. The butterflies were then positioned over and around them. It was so quick and easy to get such an elegant and summery design. I got so many compliments on these nails.

Stick around because I have another product from Born Pretty Store to review just as great as this one!

Until next time,

  1. Beautiful Manicure :)


  2. I know this is an older post but when I Googled "born pretty store water decals review" it was the first one that popped up. I need to do my own review and I wasn't sure how much I needed to moisten my nails before applying the decal. Your review explained it perfectly, so thank you!
