Born Pretty Bow Nail Art

Pin It
I had planned to use these gorgeous red bows with pink polka dots sent for review by Born Pretty Store for a Hello Kitty or Minnie Mouse nail art design, but I was swatching a few new polishes and a sparkly red looked like a good base so I just went with it!

The bows come in 10 piece packs, packaged like above. They are plastic, have a pink heart as the knot and some pink polka dots painted on. Here is the link (item 4161), they are just US$1.41!

And here is what I did with them:

 For this look I started with 1 coat of Essie Jelly Apple. Next I added 2 coats of Elixir Lacquer Red Nose, and 1 very thin coat of Jelly Apple to make a jelly sandwich. I finished it off with some Seche Vite.
To affix the bows I added a blob of SV to the underside of the knot and centered it at the very base of each nail.

These bows looked extra cute and the were placed out of the way so they did not interfere with typing or anything. Better yet, they are reusable. I do recommend sticking them on with nail art glue though, because the SV doesn't keep them on for the longest time!!

  1. I would love to try a mani with cute little bows like these...I'm just afraid I'll pick them off in no time! LOL.

  2. Oh my gosh, this is unbelievably cute! I definitely need to replicate this!

  3. OMG!!! These red bows are so pretty. They def match with red nail color. I wanna have one of these and try it out. So girly and unique!
