I am fortunate to collaborate with Born Pretty Store again. This is an online store I highly recommend for nail art fanatics.

Here are the items I got. For this post, I will review the water decal on the 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 Colorful Nail Art Water Decals Chinese Ink Painting Nail Transfer Stickers DS-310. It retails for $1.29 and here's the description...

"Specification:

2. Remove the film of product, cut out the patter and plunge it into water 10-20 seconds.
3. Moisten the fingernails, stick the patter in position.
4. Sop up the water with a paper towel and blow dry.
5. Cap with clear nail polish and blow dry.

Warming: keep away from children."
Here's a closer look at the water decal. I should have taken the film off the sheet. My bad!
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original and Formula X Prime Xcel Base Coat. 2 coats of Zoya in Aurora on thumb, index, and pinkie finger. 2 coats of OPI in Alpine Snow on middle and ring finger. Then I applied Born Pretty Chinese Ink Painting Water Decal on middle and ring finger, and then topped every nail with Formula X Shine Xcel Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love water decals. I haven't used one in ages and after doing this nail art, I forgot how much water decals add an extra special onto the nail. They're extremely easy to use. I cut the piece I want on my nail and soak it in water while holding it with a Tweezer. Once it's soaked enough which takes about couple of seconds, I just push it with my finger. Then I grab the decal with my Tweezer and apply it on the area I want. Then I seal it with a top coat, as well as, smooth out the nail art. Secondly, I fell in love with this water decal. It comes with different sizes, shapes, and designs. It's great for small to big nail beds. Not only that, it really does look like ink painting. I fell in love with the design, because it looks artistic and professional. I've had people comment how nice it looks!  Lastly, I've had it on for a week and it hasn't faded or rubbed off. It looks brand new like the day I applied it.

Would repurchase: Yes.
