Born Pretty - Paris Water Decals Review

Happy Monday everyone! (It's a happy day because we have school off today!)
Today I also have another Born Pretty review.

This time I am reviewing this set of water decals. Now myself, I am not much of a sticker or nail decal fan. That said, however, I absolutely loved these. They're one of the coolest things I've tried from Born Pretty.

Here's what you get -

So it's all one sheet but I cut it down to make it easier to take pictures of.
If you're not familiar with water transfer decals they work similar to temporary tattoos. The instructions say to paint a base color (which I did), then place a cut out piece in water. The transfer and the back will separate after 15ish seconds and you just place it on. Simple as that!

They look super awesome. I would suggest cutting a piece as close to the size of your nail as possible. I filed the ends off and used a brush dipped in acetone to clean up the extra around my cuticles. 

The instructions also say to use a hair dryer to set the pattern but I don't know if this is necessary. I did that but I think you could do without it. I used Seche Vite over the design.

My favorite is my thumb. So pretty!

Oh, I especially like these decals because they go a long way. I did my whole hand and used a little more than 1/2 of one decal. Not to mention they're only $1.99!

Overall, I LOVED these (in case you couldn't tell) I had absolutely no issues with them. If you're not such a Paris fan, they have a whole selection of other water decals here
