Born pretty store review + my new year's eve mani

Hello everyone. First of all, thank you for being around this year, for all the views and appreciation I got from you. 2013 was my first year in the nail art world, I barely started this in march as a complete noob and I came so far already. Also thank you for all the support. Without it I couldn't have come so far.

It's my birthday in 4 days so I take this manicure as a a self glitzy birthday present as well as a stylish way to start 2014 tomorrow.

Here's the product I used to create this manicure.

I used nr3, the yellow oval ones. They come in packs of 5. After I got to use them for this design here's a list of pros and cons for them:

  • 7 styles and colors to use from
  • affordable, right now they're 99 cents
  • they imitate a semi precious stone perfectly
  • the flatback has perfect adherence to the surface of the nail, even over shinny polish
  • topcoat is just fine to stick it on, i didn't have to use any glue for it
  • each cabochon is slightly different in tone and details
  • you can do a LOT of things with these. You can use your imagination and turn them into jewels like I prefered to do for this design
  • there's a little transparency to them and they will show a little from base color under them. That's the reason why my stones appear darker , because the color under them is black.
  • if you put topcoat over them they might become unusable, as they are not made out of metal or, of course, real stone. If you try a design like mine, go around it with topcoat to seal the beads and rhinestones.

Here's the polish and material list and links for everything used for this design:

This design is also my entry for the born pretty store new year contest. If there's a voting phase I will let you know. Thank you for all the support.
