I have some gorgeous dried flowers from Born Pretty Store to review for you today.
These are the 12 X Unique Dry Dried Flower UV Nail Art Design ones. Here is the direct link: http://www.bornprettystore.com/unique-dried-flower-nail-design-p-129.html
I received 12 pottles of different coloured flowers in 2 styles. At first I preferred the larger whole flowers rather than the the big ones with lots of tiny flowers. The reason being? The tiny flowers are super brittle and therefore difficult to handle without breaking up. Also, The stalk-y bits don't float my boat and they're far too big to fit whole on my little nails. But then I realised that the tiny flowers are really gorgeous if you cut them off the stalk! I played around with them a bit in my mani to show you the different things you can do with them.

These are the 2 I used for my dried flower nail art.

I didn't have any thick top coat with me so it was a bit bumpy to the touch, but it looked pretty cool. My favourite nails are the index and pinkie.
Application wasn't difficult or time consuming, just a little fiddly. I used some scissors to cute the blue flower to fit my middle finger and most of the blue flower heads had just broken off by themselves.
I started off coating the entire nail in top coat, then placing the flowers on with a toothpick. After some trial and error, I just licked my finger and picked the flowers up and placed them that way!
Sorry for the crust around my cuticles, I didn't have my usual clean-up tools with me either :(
So would I buy these myself?
I think I really would. I do wish that there was an equal mix of the big and small flowers, but as I learned, the bigger ones look a bit more attractive once you get rid of the stalk. At US$6.08, I think the 12 pack is worth the cost.
