Granny's Plates with Born Pretty Floral Water Decals

I'm finding out more and more lately, that I am actually really bad at time management and organising myself, especially this week as I am doing a City and Guilds Customer Services Course, nothing massive, just a little level 1 qualification, but I am honestly struggling to manage anything when it has finished for the day. Mainly because I'm getting horrible headaches afterwards, I think it might have something to do with the lighting in the building.

Although I have been keeping my nails different each day and nicely polished, I haven't been doing anything extravagant, just a glitter on top of a nice autumnal colour. So because we finished a little early today, and because I had no appointments or anything this afternoon, I decided to try and catch up on some of my Born Pretty Store items. 

Today I have used these pretty blue floral water decals. It might just be me, but the moment I saw the pattern, it really reminded me of the china set that ever Granny seemed to have when I was growing up, it was always 'the good set' and was normally on display somewhere safe out of reach of tiny, destructive hands.

So here is what I did with them. 

There are 4 different designs and you get 4 of each one. I have used 3 different ones on this mani.

Like the cute cat decals I tried before, each decal is individually cut so no fiddly cutting to deal with. 

They took only a few seconds in the water until they slid right off the backing, there was no colour run, which I have had before with decals that have vibrant colours. They lay flat really nicely and on the 3 nails in the middle I had no creases at all, yes the thumb and pinkie was a different story, I used the same design on both and I was being really finickity with it and wanted them to go a certain way, so this was my fault and not an issue with the decals.

I topped it all with a coat of Seche Vite and there was no curling from the decals at all. 

I do love a white mani and the simplicity of adding bright, floral decals to give a pop of nail art has always been something I am fond of.

You can buy these decals from Born Pretty Store here for £1.76 ($2.86) and if you are doing a little shop, you can use my code CBAQ10 at checkout for 10% off your entire basket. 

Did these decals remind you of your Granny's best china set?


The water decals in this post were sent to me for review. All opinions expressed are my own honest opinions.
