I have Mermaid Tail Nails y’all, and they are magical. I have another Born Pretty review today, and you are going to love this one. If you are new to the blog, (hello) I want to let you know that I have several reviews for other products that I have received from the Born Pretty Store, and you can see the other BPS reviews that I have done by clicking on the Born Pretty Store link in the “Categories” section on the right hand side of the blog. I received a sheet of Fish Scale Nail Vinyls to play with, and they are so much fun! I have always been a fan of fish scale patterns on nails. I think the possible color combos are endless and they look so chic. You may remember the blog post where I discovered Nail Vinyls and mentioned that I would absolutely be using them again because they are awesome. When I saw the Fish Scale Nail Vinyls, I knew that I had to have them.
These Fish Scale Nail Vinyls are a little different than the previous nail vinyls that I got from Born Pretty. The Fish Scale Nail Vinyls can be used two different ways. The first way to use them is as a stencil like I did here to create my Mermaid Tail nails. 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. But, what makes these Fish Scale Nail Vinyls different is that the beautiful holographic surface makes them just as useful as a nail sticker. The adhesive is quite strong, so they have a good stick to them even though the scales are thin.
Here is a close up look at the pattern. I was able to cut the vinyls in half and use one vinyl for two nails. My nails are just barely short enough to do this. If your nails are any longer than mine then you will have to use a full vinyl per nail. And, of course, if you plan to use them as a sticker rather than a stencil, then you will want to plan on using a full vinyl per nail so that you can cut it to the right shape and size. For my lovely Mermaid Tail nails, I used Sinful Colors Black on Black as my base color and then used the Green Stamping Polish from the Born Pretty Store for the scales. I think that they look really beautiful. I am very pleased with the result, and I will definitely be using these Fish Scale Nail Vinyls again.
The Fish Scale Nail Vinyls are currently on sale for $1.59. 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 definitely plan ahead if you are ordering something time sensitive (like for a vacation or holiday items) and order them early. Orders ship within 24 hours.
