Born Pretty Store Fluorescent Rhinestones Review - 80s Disco Flowers :)

Hello everyone! I was recently contacted by Born Pretty Store and asked to review some of their products - I received a lovely selection last week and today I have the first mani which features their leaf shaped fluorescent/candy coloured rhinestones. This also ties in nicely with the last March prompt of the NAILS Mag March Challenge as the prompt is "Embellished".

I started with a simple black base using All About Nails Liqorice and then added a generous layer of top coat to one nail at a time to allow me time to place the rhinestones into flower shapes.







I love the colours and despite initially wondering what I was going to do with the leaf shapes I think that they worked really well to create the flower design. This mani actually reminds me of a rara skirt I had when I was little so let's say that these are my tribute 80s disco flowers :) 

You can see all of their new arrivals here, and if you use the code UKX31 you'll get 10% off too!

  1. Love the way neon studs contrast onto a black base *___* I've got round and square ones and I'm longing for more <3

  8. that is eye-poppin !! Did the studs lay flush with the nail; like with no ends sticking out to catch on something?
    I am a hog-when it comes to BPS!!!!

    1. Thanks! The rhinestones stayed really flush, they're slightly hollowed out so they sit just into the nail varnish and not just on top :)
