Born Pretty Store Peacock Full Nail Water Decals



When I first saw these Born Pretty Store Peacock decals in the packet I thought they were nail wraps because of the way they were shaped and positioned on the backing.


Turns out they are full nail water decals. 

I decided to do a basic mani using 2 of the peacock decals on my middle and ring fingers for the main focus of the mani. I used Barry M Gelly Blue Grape for the other nails and added 1 gold stud to the thumb and 2 to the index.


Going by the way the decals we 'pre-shaped' and cutting along those lines, I did find it difficult to get these decals to fit my nails, mainly in width. If I was to turn them on their side and get the width to fit, then the length would be a problem. Because of this I wouldn't recommend purchasing these to do a full mani of just these decals. For doing only one or 2 nails or doing bits of peacock feather on a nail these are perfect for your nail art.

The decals slid easily off the backing paper after being submerged for a few seconds, they clung well to the nail even when slightly damp still but were easy to move around and position accordingly.

Excess decal came away easily by using a brush dipped in nail polish remover and I didn't get any shrinkage by using Seche Vite. Once the Seche was dry, there were no major noticeable wrinkles in the decals and the colours remained vibrant.

  1. How annoying that they don't fit your nails! I do like the print, although I think it is slightly too big :)

    1. I was a little disappointed in the size but I think that will happen to each person a least once, there are so many nail shapes and sizes out there, I guess it is hard to please everyone at the same time. It did turn out to be a pretty mani though, didn't it?
