Review: Born Pretty Store - Gold Mandala Pattern Nail Stickers DTL 120*


This pack of nail stickers contain 26 stickers. These particular ones have a mandala patterns, dream catchers, moons and teardrop designs.


These stickers are thin and flexible which means they really bend with the curve of the nail and so it doesn't matter how strong of a C curve you have to your nails. They are also very sticky and stick well to the nail. You could wear these without a topcoat but I found myself using one to seal the sticker in. But they don't stick up so you don't necessarily have to.

I used these tear drop shaped stickers in a duochrome accent nail art;

And as an accent in a pedicure;

Review: Beauty Formulas - Fingernail Mask

I have never seen a fingernail mask before, and thought is may be something new to try out.

They come in two strips of five which you tear apart in to thimble like caps for each finger.

These were hard to work with, getting them all on to each finger while wearing them. They kept falling off as they were loose fitting. Because of the fit I didn't find they pushed against the nail enough to moisturise the nail without pushing them against my nails.

Before and After;

Final thoughts?
Not something I found was useful, they didn't stay on the nails and as soon as you moved your fingers they fell off. The suggestion said leave on for 30 to 60 minutes which was difficult. They did hydrate the finger tips and nails but I imagine that was down to the high quantities of glycerin. They would have worked better if the caps were elastic or something similar so it gripped to the fingertips.
