Hello my loves! I apologize for my absence, again. If you follow me on Instagram or facebook, you may already know why I was MIA – I am suffering from not one, but 3 tooth abscesses. I have a broken molar on the bottom right side of my mouth, that decided to abscess and take the 2 surrounding teeth with it. For the past 4 days, my face has been hugely swollen, and even moving my head is incredibly painful. My dentist rocks, and saw me Monday morning as soon as I woke up and called, and I’m on antibiotics, but the infection is so bad that I still have a gold ball sized lump that hurts like crazy. I guess when the tooth cracked, it had a small hole in the center that food was getting down into. Brushing was not able to remove it, and so it became infected. Fun stuff!! And I had an appt for it next week too. Oh well. Nothing much I can do save for suffer through until the swelling is gone and I can have the teeth fixed.
Today I am back to swatching and have all sorts of killer goodies to share!
You all know about my love for Born Pretty Store’s nail art products, and today I have some seriously cool water decals to show you all. Now, this manicure isn’t perfect – I’ll admit that now. I worked on this with a face the size of Guatemala, so please forgive my mistakes! I will say that these are some of the coolest water decals ever. I adore all things Egyptian – I’ve been obsessed with Egyptian mythology since I was a kid – I even have the Eye of Horus tattooed on my right bicep – so when saw these, I knew I had to try them.
These are a bit different than the usual water decals I use — these are large enough to use as a full nail decal, or partial nail, and would also make some wicked accent nails. I chose to show these over a white base polish to make the colors pop.
placement is not perfect since my face was super swollen and super painful, making this the hardest manicure on earth, but one must have cool nails for emergency dental work right?
Like all of Born Pretty Store’s water decals, these are soooo simple to use. Just apply your base color and let dry. Then cut your decals to the size of your choice, dunk in water, apply to the nail and let dry for a few minutes. Add top coat and voila! Fast and easy, epic nail art!
These decals come in a pack of 10 – 2 of each design for one full manicure, or several accent nails. The pack sells for $2.98 at BornPrettyStore.com, search for item number 10754, or click here to go right to them. This is design number 112 – there are also peacock and leopard designs available. Go grab some – they are too cool to pass up. They are also incredibly long lasting, remaining perfect until I removed them 4 days after applying!
What do you think of these water decals? Are you a fan of egyptian art?
