The last time I did a nail accessory review, it was Chevron striping tape- a nifty new toy. Well I have another unique item to show you, courtesy of the Born Pretty Store. Today I want to show you some Nail Vinyl Stencils. I have never seen them before, but they are a really neat tool to add to your nail arsenal. The vinyls give you a manicure that seems so much more complicated than it really is. Take a look.
These diecut vinyl stencils are self-adhesive. Simply stick them onto your nail where you want to paint the pattern, and then brush the polish over them. When you peel back the sticker, it will reveal a complicated looking pattern that was super easy to accomplish. There are six patterns available on bornprettystore.com, and each package contains two patterns with six stencils each. The stencils are single use only. Depending on how long your nails are, you may be able to cut a stencil in half and use it on two nails. Here are the patterns that I chose:
For my manicure, I used China Glaze Glittering Garland as my base color. I chose the vinyl stencil with the X’s and dots on it, and painted China Glaze Ultimate Holiday over that. Even though my nails were on the longer side, I was able to use one stencil for both nails. I love the way it came out, and the stencils were really easy to use. I am very happy that I have more patterns to experiment with because after my first use, I am a big fan. The stencils are usually $4.59, but they are currently on sale for only $2.30. I definitely recommend them.
You can see the other BPS reviews I have done by clicking on the Born Pretty Store link in the “Categories” section on the right hand side of the blog. As I’ve mentioned in previous reviews, the Born Pretty Store is located in China, so shipping will take a while. It is normal for orders to take 2-4 weeks to ship to the US, and in my experience, I have gotten most of my orders within 2-3weeks. You should still plan ahead if you are ordering something time sensitive like holiday items and order them early. Orders ship within 24 hours.
