Sweet Bowknot from Born Pretty Store

I won a giveaway held on twitter last month from Born Pretty Store! I was sent three things. Today, I'm showing you one of those things: 24pc Sweet Bowknot Resin 3D Nail Art Sticker w/box.

You get two of each color and they come in this wheel. This is the first time I've had nail art supplies that came in a wheel so I had no idea that you could turn the plastic top around to have the little window open above each compartment. I'm an idiot and tried to pry the top off, lol. I figured it out before I broke it though! Whew!

I made use of my swatch sticks to find suitable polishes to pair with one of the bows. I liked the look of China Glaze Full Spectrum and NYC East Village with the teal bow.

I did two coats of NYC East Village on all nails. After they dried, I used striping tape to make random lines and then applied one coat of China Glaze Full Spectrum. I pulled off the striping tape and top coated with Seche Vite.

I have ridiculously tiny nail beds so the bow looked pretty silly on any of my nails. Is that a weird placement? This was my third attempt putting it somewhere! I put it on my ring fingernail and my nail disappeared. So it's on my thumb!

These are quite possibly the most sparkly, blingy nails I've ever worn. I really really love it! The bows are totally reusable, too!

You can find these bows here: 24pc Sweet Bowknot Resin 3D Nail Art Sticker w/box for $4.14 on They have FREE worldwide shipping! Don't forget to use the code KARW10 to get 10% off!

    I love that color combination, but I don't know how you could have that bling on your nail! I would have been like a cat, trying to flick it off! LOL ;)

  2. Hehe, yeah! The bow didn't stay on long because I didn't have nail glue at the time. I used Seche Vite to stick it on and was still able to remove it easily after taking the pictures.
