Review of Lotus Flower water decals (G080) from BornPrettyStore.com

Review of lotus flower water decals (G080) from BornPrettyStore.com by honeymunchkin.com

Hey guys! Next up from BornPrettyStore for me to review are these gorgeous lotus flower water decals. These are the first water decals with color that I’ve tried, and I just love them. It was a bit tricky to find a base color that would go with all three colors, but I decided on China Glaze Fancy Pants from the Avant Garden collection, and I think it’s looks pretty darn neat.

These decals are bigger than the ones I’ve previously tried, and I found them slightly more difficult to place neatly. I had to work the decal a lot to stop it from folding, but once it was sitting flat on my nail there was no issue at all. I also had to cut a few of them to better fit my nail shape, but I guess they are made slightly bigger as to fit more people’s nails.

The description of these decals say that they are lotus flowers, but they remind me more of the Swedish Dala horse (Dalahäst) style of paining (the style is called ‘allmoge’). Regardless, I think these decals are stunning.

You vs Me

Hey guys,

I was looking through my site stats recently and noticed that my nail care routine post has been viewed about 24K times. Twenty four thousand times!  The second most popular post is my tutorial for how to fix a broken finger nail (which has been shared 12K times onto Pinterest from my blog, and then re-shared probably close to 100K times on there).

So it hit me, that you guys might enjoy tutorials more than swatches. I prefer doing and reading/looking at swatches which is why I’ve been doing so many of them, but not once did I stop and think about what YOU GUYS like about my site!

It really would mean the world to me if you could leave me a quick comment below and tell me if you also enjoy my swatches or if you want to see more tutorials?

You guys are the best <3

Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit

Kiss Nail Artist Paint & Stencil Kit by honeymunchkin.com

The final set of Kiss polishes I have to review for you is this Nail Artist Paint & Stencil kit. It contains three stripers, one white, one silver and one black. It also contains 30 stencils that you can place on your nail and simply fill in the spaces with polish. Sounds pretty neat, right?

Here in Sweden, this set is available in beauty stores such as Åhléns and Kicks at a price of SEK 145. All Kiss products can be found on their website www.kissusa.com.

So these are the stencils that come in this pack. There’s a lot of flowers going on here but also a few more abstract patterns.

I chose to try on these crossed swords (Pirates, right?!), on a dark red polish to show you how it works. The stencil attached well to the nail without creating bubbles or folds.

I then used the white striper to fill in the spaces in the stencil and peeled it off. Now, as you can see, it ended up pretty messy. The white polish was a tad thick, and dried a bit too fast so it pulled off some of the polish. I would have preferred to use a sponge here, and not a striper since they aren’t very good at even application over a bigger space.

Also, the stencil can only be used once. The polish stuck to the fabric/tape that makes up the stencil, and if I would clean it with remover, it will melt the stencil, making it deformed. A bit of a shame, but that’s what chemicals do to plastic. These stencils might work much better with acrylic paint than polish, since you can easily wash acrylic off with water and not risk damaging the stencil.

I also wanted to try this curly one with the silver striper. Again, it was a bit tricky to fill in the spaces using such a long thin brush, but it didn’t dry and drag as much as the white one.

A much cleaner result! However, it’s a shame the stencil becomes practically useless after one use, since you can’t create nail art that looks the same across all fingers.

I also wanted to try the stripers on their own, and I must say that I prefer them like this. It’s a lot easier and goes on a lot smoother. I made some quick leopard spots and tiger stripes using all three stripers.

And sorry for the nubs, guys, I broke two nails not too long ago, so I had to cut them all down. Oh well, they’ll grow back!
