Floral French

One last Born Pretty Store review before I head to Thailand on vacation! I wanted to get this out before I left, since I feel bad holding on to things I need to review and its been months!

First off, I need to make a guilty admission: I am absolutely terrible at french manicures. Like, laughably horrible. My baby sister (who’s nails you are going to see a LOT of during the last week of my vacation) was visiting while I did this mani, and when I showed her the nails without the floral decals she laughed in my face. I know that most people use vinyls to make the pretty white curve, but still. This looked AWFUL. And then I added flowers…and it was magically better 🙂

The inspiration for this actually came from the graphic on the Born Pretty Store website. They like to demo water decals over a french nail, and I thought it looked surprisingly good! I think I was right…only my nails are a mess so I went with a pale blue background rather than my natural nails.

You can find the floral decal on sale for $0.99 at the Born Pretty Store! For an additional 10% off, use the code LY5X31. This works really well for a simple and cute mani!
