Born Pretty Store Review: Succulents Galore!

*Provided for honest review*

Hey, everyone!

My first nail-related post after this long absence of mine will be focusing on one of the many products I need to review for Born Pretty Store. I've had this batch of items sitting aside on my desk for a VERY long time at this point, and I am so glad to finally have a chance to give you my thoughts on them! So keep reading for some awesome stuff!

These water decals can be found HERE for currently $1.99 per sheet (normally $3.59). Except do you know what's so great about this sheet of water decals? It's actually a MEGA sheet, comprised of 12 different sheets of water decals. There are 3 sheets of cactus, 3 sheets of succulents, and 6 sheets of miscellaneous floral designs. It's amazing! The styles vary from sheet to sheet, but are all very detailed and colorful.

As far as I could tell, all of the images have a white backing, meaning they are opaque over any color, which is always a plus when it comes to water decals! I just love the variety in all of these designs so much!

I did have some concerns when I first opened the package of review items, however. It appeared that the large sheet got badly crushed or wrinkled at some point during transit. I was afraid this would mean that the water decals themselves wouldn't lay nice and flat on my nail once I applied them.

Thankfully, this didn't seem to be the case, as I was able to apply the most visibly wrinkled decal from this particular sheet with no creasing whatsoever on my nail! I think that perhaps to avoid this in the future, it might help if the larger sheets like these were shipped with a hard cardboard backing, to help ensure that it doesn't get damaged during shipping.

Now, on to the nail design I actually did with some of these lovely water decals! I used sheet A1228 first, one of the all-cactus sheets, and chose a few different designs to apply over a nice brown base color.

I first applied two creamy coats of OPI Wooden Shoe Like To Know, a perfect chocolate brown shade with the subtlest hint of red shimmer to it. I waited until it was completely dry, then applied the cute little cactus decals using the normal water decal method. I topped everything with topcoat, as usual. 

Apologies for the tip wear in some of these pics, but these were taken at some point during the moving process I mentioned in my last post. I especially liked how my thumb turned out. It looks like quite the cactus party!

It feels so good to be posting nail art again! I can't wait to catch up! Although I promise, besides reviews, you guys haven't missed anything special on my nails. I think I painted my nails about 3 times during the entire summer? Hence why they're so stubby and sad right now. Anyway, I highly recommend these water decals, which are the perfect size for long or short nails!
