Burgundy & Gold Nails

Sponsored | Bought Myself | Press Sample | Nothing to Disclose | Giveaway Winnings | Gifted

Good morning (afternoon or evening) today I will be sharing with you a polish from Cover girl and some Foil Metal Gold 3D Decal Slices from Born Pretty Store.

I'll be honest, this whole mani was a fail for me. The polish is Pyro Pink from Cover Girls Hunger Games District Collection, and it was just okay for me, nothing really speical. I know I used 3 coats, possibly 4 to reach some kind of opaqueness.

The decal slices were the worst part for me, they looked super pretty in the packaging, but once I got them out they felt really stiff and I thought I may have an issue working with them. I was right, after I painted my last coat of polish, using tweezers I placed the decal on my nail and pushed one side down with the tweezers to get it to 'stick' to the polish. Once I had the one side down, I went to push the other side down, and the first side would pop back up. I also attempted to 'bend' them on my own so the would lay flat on my nail, but I had no luck at all. Maybe they are not supposed to lay flat, I don't know LOL


I don't know if it was just 'operator error' or what with these, but they just did not work for me.

As always if you wish to make a purchase with Born Pretty, be sure to use my coupon code:  SMBW10

I have two upcoming posts, both reviews. One is for some Vincent Longo makeup products that I received from Beauty Stat and the other is a Moisturizing Foot Soak that I received from Candie Chic! Hope you all will come back for those :)

  1. Hmmmm...cute pink, but as you say, nothing special! What a shame the decals wouldn't lie down flat. :(

    1. Makes me wonder if any of the other colors from the collection would have been a better choice :/

  2. I think the heart looks cute, even if it wouldn't lay flat. That seems to be a big problem with 3D nail art bits.

    1. Thanks Lizzy! Yeah, it sure does. I like to stick to things that will lay flat on the nail, less snagging to be had :)
