Carnations on Brown

Something simple for today! Gold and white nail art stickers from the Born Pretty Store with gold chevrons on brown. This was my first time using chevron nail vinyls and I love them!!

The base here is the last of the super-on-sale polishes that I picked up from ULTA. It is a stunning dark brown with ample gold glitter called Starry Night. It dries to a matte finish (more of a semi-matte really) and the glitters really pop! Shown here is two coats of Starry Night.

I then added some gold and white flower stickers, and applied chevron nail vinyls from KBShimmer. The vinyls were awesomely sticky but did not pull up the polish, although I applied them to my skin first to remove a bit of the stick. They were easy to reposition. I have ~100 of them and I already wish I had more! I need to try some gradients now 🙂

This was my first time using a Spa Ritual polish, mostly because I refuse to pay $12 or so for a drug store polish. This one was $4, so I think it was money well spent! I have to say I do like the shape of the bottle and I had no problem with the brush or controlling the polish, so if I see more of this brand on sale I might very well buy the polish. But it isn’t spectacular enough to be worth over $10!

As to the stickers, they are still very three-dimensional so you need extra top coat to make them smooth to the nail, but they are a fun and easy way to make nail art! You can pick up a whole sheet of 12 patterns for $4.73 (which is totally worth it) and use my 10% off code (LY5X31)!
