Born Pretty Store Review: Floral Water Decal!

**products sent for my honest review**

Hi there! I have another product from the Born Pretty Store to share with you today! Nail decals are a very popular item from BPS and there are a lot to choose from. I decided to go with these Colorful Motif Flower decals-- there are four designs to choose from and I picked XF1188.

This is what they look like in the package:

There are even instructions on the on the back, which are sort of helpful, but I think could benefit from some clarification.The first time I used these, I browsed the instructions and applied them like a normal temporary tattoo. WRONG! If you do this, the decal will be upside down and your manicure will look like this:

Whoops! That's not right. So I did a quick Google search to see how other bloggers do it and a key step that is left off the instructions (or not very clear at least to me) is that after you get the decal wet, you need to slip the decal off the paper and then onto your nail! Leave the decal in the water for about 30 seconds, then use tweezers or your finger nail to slid the decal off the paper and get it into the position you want on your nail. It takes a few seconds to adhere to the nail afterwards; I recommend using a paper towel (as the instruction suggest) to press down on it gently and suck up any excess water. The instructions suggest using a hair dryer to help it dry and stick-- I didn't find this necessary, though I'm sure it couldn't hurt! Once the decal was stuck go my nail I added top coat and it was perfect!

For my final manicure, I once again used Julep Janet for my base color. I chose two of the designs and put them on my ring finger and my index finger:

So pretty! I love the finished product. I definitely want to get some more decals, especially floral ones because I am on a real floral kick right now.
