Today I have my not so good experience with these cuticle tattoo things to share with you…
These have been sent to me for review from Born Pretty
The product is available here Cuticle Tattoo and if you use the discount code RPG10 you’ll get 10% off your order! 🙂
So, how did I get on with this product? As you can see from the picture, not amazingly well!
I followed the instructions on the packet, and I don’t know what was wrong, but the little tattoos did not want to stay where I put them.
I’ve never had to do fake tattoo herding before, hopefully it’s something I’ll not have to do again!
They just kept on lifting up at the edges, and then sticking to anything I tried to use to get them back to where they where supposed to be.
I have to say I’m not a fan of the shininess, maybe a little dab of translucent face powder would fix it. But then again my nail polish is matte which could be accentuating the glossiness.
The cuticle tattoos where really easy to remove, they came straight off when I washed my hands!
I have actually been putting off writing this post since last week, I don’t think I would have been so ummm diplomatic (lol) with my description of this product if I had written about it straight away.
Then it occurred to me (while I was typing) that these do have a redeeming use!
They do make really pretty half moon nail decals! 😀

Grey Water Marble
Today I have these shiny silver studs from Born Pretty to show you!
Born Pretty Nail Art Studs
The studs are made from thin metal, they are really light and slightly flexible while keeping quite a domed profile.
I applied them by pressing them into wet topcoat. You could always use nail glue to apply them if you want them to be a bit more secure.
The studs are available here Born Pretty Triangle Nail Stud and you can get 10% off with the code RPG10!

For my grey water marble I used
- Sinful Colors – Cool Grey
- Barry M – Grey
- China Glaze – Out Like a Light
I’m really pleased with how well these three shades work together! (does happy dance)
For the french tip the silver polish is I’d Melt For You from China Glaze, and I used french tip guides to keep them all even.

Today I have another product kindly sent for me for review from Born Pretty!
Born Pretty BP-17
This stamping plate is called Elegant Flower BP-17 and it’s available here Born Pretty Elegant Flower
Born Pretty BP-17
The images on this plate are so pretty! 🙂

The sparkly silver glitter polish I used as the base for this is Shooting Star from Rimmel London. it’s as lovely polish but It did need a couple of coats of Seche Vite for a smooth surface to stamp onto.
The stamping polish is Konad Special Polish In Black. I think my bottle is on it’s last legs, the image was really sharp and easy to pick up on the stamper but getting it onto my nail was another matter
I only kept going because 1. I’m stubborn and 2. Removing glitter polish is a pain in the butt!
Born Pretty BP-17
I think I’m going to try this again but with a different stamping polish!

Born Pretty Decal
Today I have some lovely water slide decals from Born Pretty to show you!
The Born Pretty name for these is “Mini Bow knot Cross Lacy Design Print Nail Art Water Decals” (quite a mouthful lol) and the item number is DS-107.
They are available right here Mini Cross Bow Decal
This is how I apply water slide decals
- Cut each decal out as close to the image as you can. Then remove the thin plastic cover
- Put the decal in some water for around 15/30 seconds. I try to float them on the surface with the image facing up
- Carefully remove it from the white backing, with tweezers or carefully rubbing them between my fingers.
- Place the decal on your nail. It helps if your nail is a little wet it makes it easier to reposition the decal if needed.
- Wait till it’s dry and add topcoat.
The polishes I used for this look are
- Barry M – Bright Pink
- Rimmel – Peppermint
- Rimmel – Ultra Violet
- Sinful Colors – Snow Me White
As well as loads of striping tape, french tip guides and a couple of coats of Seche Vite. 😀
Pink Purple And Teal
And don’t forget you can use the code RPG10 for 10% off 😀

Today I have some cute Rhinestone spider nail gems that have been sent to me for review from BornPretty to show you.
You can find them right here! Born Pretty Rhinestone Spiders and if you use the code RPG10 you can get 10% off!
NYC 001 – Evil
The other things I used for this mani are
- NYC – Evil
- Color Club – Lumin-Iceant
- Moyou Pro Collection XL stamping plate 05
- Seche Vite
I started out with two coats of Evil, it’s a nice black cream but, that name! Evil! Who thought that one up? ugh!
I used Lumin-Iceant to stamp the spiderweb design from Moyou Pro 05 and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite
When that had dried it was time to apply the spider, But I found this…
Not very flat at all!
The back of the spider wasn’t flat, it looks to be something to do with the manufacturing process.
So I decided to remove it using an old metal nail file, it only took a couple of minutes and it worked really well! Although it was a little bit fiddly to keep a good grip on the spider while filing as they are tiny!
Now I have a flat bottomed spider. I applied a thick coat of Seche Vite to my ring finger nail and positioned it on my nail using tweezers, and gently pressed it onto the nail until the topcoat had dried.
I think these little spiders are really cute, but I really like spiders! 😀
