I am fortunate to work with Born Pretty Store.

This is the most recent haul. I already reviewed the nail polish, Holo in #217. For this post, I will review one of the water decals. I will review the one on the far left.
Since I did a thorough review of Born Pretty Blue Wings Butterfly Water Decal, I will base this on that. This is Born Pretty Black Butterfly Nail Art Water Decal Transfer Sticker. It retails for $2.10 and here's the description...

"Specification:
Quantity: 1 sheet
Pattern: 4 patterns available
100% brand new

Package Contents:
1 sheet Nail Water Decals Sticker

Nails Application:
1. Trim, clean and polish the fingernails; paint the background color on the fingernails and dry it out.
2. Remove the film and product, cut out the pattern and plunge it into water 10-20 seconds.
3. Moisten the fingernails, stick the pattern in position.
4. Sop up the water with a paper towel and blow dry.
5. Cap with clear nail polish and blow dry."
Here's a closer look at the water decal.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat, 2 coats of Orly in Green With Envy on all the nails except ringer finger, and 2 coats of Inglot in #390 on the ring finger. After the nail polish dried on the ring finger, I applied Born Pretty Black Butter Water Decal. Then using a dotting tool, I made three flowers with multiple nail polishes (OPI in Make Love..., OPI in Kiss Me on my Tulips, and Sinful Colors in Verbena). Ended with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat on all the nails.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm a huge fan of water decals. I think they're much better in quality than stickers. From my experience, stickers only last for couple of days and then they start to fade starting from the outside. Water decals don't fade until the nail polish chips. With that said and last of all, it's been over a week and it's still looking new.

Would repurchase: Yes!
