Good morning lovely ladies,
Recently I was contacted by Born Pretty Store to see if I would be interested in reviewing a product for the company. I've ordered nail art supplies from the online shop many times before and have always been happy with the quality of my purchases (stamping plates, glitter and acrylic paint) so of course I said yes.
When given the opportunity to choose a product to review, I decided to pick something I hadn't tried before and which was a little bit different so I ended up choosing these gold butterflies.
Born Pretty Store is based in Hong Kong I believe so shipping (which is free) to the UK can take a few weeks but my butterflies flew here really quickly and actually arrived within a week.
For my first butterfly manicure, I applied two coats of Barry M Fuchsia followed by a layer of Max Factor Fantasy Fire to create a shimmer effect. I then painted my nails with a top coat and while that was still wet, placed two butterflies on my accent nail. I used a cocktail stick to pick up each butterfly by the gaps in the wings but you could also use tweezers. I then gently pressed the butterfly down with my finger to ensure it would stick to my nail.
As you may already know, I absolutely love butterflies so these decorations were perfect for me and I would definitely recommend them for making manicures a little more special and unique. The pack I ordered contains 1,000 butterflies and cost $8.80 however there are plenty of other shapes and designs to choose from on the website. As an added bonus, whenever you buy something from Born Pretty Store you can enter the code APL91 at the checkout to get a 10% discount for being one of my readers :-)
What do you think girls? Are these something you would add to your manicure?
Bye for now,
