Born Pretty Store Mermaid Water Decals

Yes, sadly the nubbins are back and my super nails are gone, le sigh! They didn't break, thank Odin but I did have to cut them back in anticipation of bad health times. I'm hoping to be able to grow them back so I can have them long again by Christmas, hopefully, fingers crossed.

But let's talk about these water decals from Born Pretty Store. Mermaids are awesome, we all know this and mermaid nail art is also awesome and if you can be a mermaid, then you should always be a mermaid. 

These decals come in 2 different colour types and are pre-sized for each finger, because of this reason, they aren't particularly great for anyone with long (phew) or wide nails. The largest decal still wasn't quite wide enough for my thumb so I used 2 decals for a half and half look to ensure the whole nail was covered.

Shell and starfish studs are also from Born Pretty Store. 

The decals are easy to apply and cling to the nail quite well, they hold their colour through the whole process and remove just like nail polish. I recommend waiting about 10 minutes before adding the top coat on these as I got a bit over zealous with my index finger and lost some of the decal but the other nails were fine.

You can find these decals here for £1.40/$1.99 per sheet or £2.24/$3.18 for both together.

Radioactive Unicorn Eternal Slumber

It's another photo heavy post today so I can show you as much as possible just how bloody gorgeous Eternal Slumber from Radioactive Unicorn is. I grabbed this when it was restocked a few weeks ago because there was no way I was letting this slip through my fingers.

Wikkid Polish AbsoFlakinLutely and Dione X

OK, so by now, especially if you are in the UK, you have probably heard of Wikkid Polish, a relatively new indie polish started by the lovely Sarah AKA manigranny. The polishes available are all phenomenal and to make it even better, they are 5-free, cruelty free and vegan friendly.

I bought these two polishes that really caught my eye and I had to have in my collection and today I'm showing you them. Of course, I picked two that have beauty that is tough to capture so it's a pretty photo heavy post as I try to show you them as best I can.

Born Pretty Store Bubble Water Decals

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles, my bubbles! Every time I think or say the word bubbles, I always instantly think of Bubbles from Finding Nemo. You'd think then that I would go for nail art that kind of incorporated that, well, I did, but it was terrible so I have ended up with this.

These bubble water decals are from Born Pretty Store and I really liked the idea of the gradient on the sheet, which is why I went with a similar style. The sheet has 67 different bubble decals on it, and it has about 3 ranges of sizes.

I think that these may be better suited to gel nail art as they are slightly thicker than standard water decals and I did get a tiny bit of lift on one or two of them. They came off the backing paper easily and kept their colour throughout the whole process. All the decals are individually cut to size so no faffing trying to get the cut right up close.

You can find these decals here for £1.40/$1.99 per sheet and they have 2 other colour options available, the white ones look kind of cool.

Have an awesome weekend!

Born Pretty Store Stud Picker Upper

Yes, picker upper! That's what it does, so that's what I'm calling it!

Have you ever tried to pick up studs or glitter or anything else with one of those white pencils that supposedly do the picker upper job? I have a few and I've had them for years and I have never been able to actually pick anything up with them, it always looks like it's doing it for a few seconds then you drop the stud and lose it and give up.
