Here's another review from Born Pretty Store.

I received some nail art products. I already reviewed the DIY Nail Art Stencil on the far left and the Holographic Nail Polish in the middle. For this post, I will focus on the French nail tip on the far right.

Thoughts: When I Googled nail arts, I came upon many wavy nail arts. I thought it was so cool and how creative people are. Given the chance to review products from Born Pretty, I realized they used French tips. Since I loved the wavy look, I wanted to try it myself.
Here's a closer look at the sheet.

Now for the tutorial...
I applied Orly Calcium Shield Basecoat on all my nails. Then 2 coats of Zoya in Dream on all my nails except the middle and ring finger. The middle and ring finger I applied OPI Liquid Sands in You're So Flippy Floppy in the center, Formula X For Sephora in Atom + Eve on the left side, and Zoya in Dream on the right. Let I let them dried.
I grabbed one French tip and stuck it on the back of my hand. I wanted it to be less sticky so it'll be easier to peel of on the nails.
After I applied all the French tips on the desired spots, I applied Milani in Black Magic. I actually dried it overnight.
In the morning, I peeled the strips off and topped all my nails with Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I love that the French tips come in a variety of shapes (straight, wavy, curve). It's be fun to come up with different designs. People can just get creative as much as they want. Secondly, I found the French tip really easy to use. It went on smoothly and came off easily. With that said, the only thing I wished is that the waves came in different sizes. Since it's only one size, doing more than one on my short nails came out bad. You can look at the top and bottom of my nails. The wave in the middle was perfect. If you have short nails, I only recommend one strip. If you have long nails, you can do more than one. Other than that, this was fun. Lastly, it lasted until the tip started chipping in that area.

* Comes in a variety of shapes.
* Goes on smoothly.
* Comes off easily.
* Can get creative as you want.
* It's fun!

* Hard to find in stores.
* Only comes in one size.

Would repurchase: Yes.

I love the wave design! :D Maybe you should try taking off the strips while the polish is still wet. Most tutorials I see usually do that so that the line will be crisp and clean.

Cool tips!! I like the waves but I also think your nails would look better if the waves were smaller. Born Pretty Store seems to offer a large amount of nails products. I have to check it out :)

love the wave design. Try taking the tape off while the polish is still wet, might help get a cleaner line.
