Starry Sky Nail Stickers - Born Pretty Store Review

*This product was sent to me for review, all opinions are my own

As I mentioned previously, I have another Born Pretty Store nail art product to review! This time around it's these nail art stickers which are based on Vincent Van Gogh's The Starry Night painting. In this sticker pack you get two rows of seven different sized stickers for $3.88AUD. The stickers themselves are quite long so if you've got small nails like I do right now you'll have to gently file or cut them down to the length of your nail. The annoying thing about that though is that sometimes you miss out on the best part of the sticker.

The above picture is what I mean by filing down the extra bit. It was such a long sticker and to achieve the perfect length I gently filed the sticker against the free edge of my nail being extra careful to not actually take any length off my own nails. It comes away so quickly and easily that it's easy to not get your own nail.

As you can see in the photos, the details of the stickers were really hard to capture because of how shiny they are. On my index and middle fingernails I placed the top of the sticker at my free edge and trimmed the bottom of the sticker so that I was getting the details from the top of it and not just more dark blue patterns like the other two nails. This proved to be a difficult process though as I couldn't trim it exactly to my nail shape so I had to use acetone to get that perfect curved shape near my cuticles. And as you can see, the silver went everywhere. It was so hard to clean up and I wish I hadn't tried it and just stuck to filing at the free edge. 

The durability of the stickers wasn't the best and by time I had finished my other fingers the first one I had done on my pinky had begun to peel off even though I had top coated it. So they didn't last very long but they did look lovely, much better than in pictures. You could see all the detailing of them, it's just that when it came time to photograph them the sparkliness of it all got in the way and my camera did not like it at all.

I would love to try out more nail stickers from the website though because before nail art that's what I would use a lot of and I loved them, so they're definitely an easy way to get great nails with little effort! 

Don't forget that you can use the code below to get 10% off when you buy anything from their website, maybe try out some of their nail art products or check out the wide range of other products they have! 

Thanks for reading!
