Nail Studs from Born Pretty Store and An Apology!

Hi!

I'm in hot water with this one, lads. A while ago, Kevin from Born Pretty Store got in touch with me to ask if I'd like to review for them. I said yes, and I shouldn't have. Nail art is so, so time consuming (above all other beauty or makeup things) - and I knew I probably wouldn't have time to do nail stuff during the day. The boys are 11 months old and teething, so we're not getting proper sleep and we're all just wrecked at night time, I just have enough energy to curl up and read for a few hours before bed. Even so, my excitement (and greediness) got the better of me and I accepted the offer, leaving it to Kevin to choose products for me. He sent me some floral decals and a wheel of mixed shaped gold and silver studs. I did do 2 looks with the products - and then lost all the pictures. The posts were supposed to go up in July and I couldn't find the files, then I forgot all about them after the laptop went to laptop heaven.

So, I've done them again. I've the first one for you today, and here's a little apologetic limerick I wrote for Kevin. Sorry Kevin.


My nails are the shortest they've been in a long time - I'm not sure what the story is there, to be honest. I'm eating better than I have in years, and I'm using Butter LONDON Horsepower but they keep breaking - I snapped 3 right to the butt on Friday while out grocery shopping. If anyone has any idea of what to use, I'm all ears. I was taking Pharmaton but I stopped - I'm averaging about 6 hours of broken sleep a night, maybe I'm ran down?!

This is the nail wheel I received from Kevin and you can purchase it HERE. The polish I used is Essence Rollercoaster.



 There's a great selection of shapes in this nail wheel. Some are larger than others - the large hearts, for example, took up a lot of space on my nails. The little hearts were beyond cute. I chose to use the stars and circles this time.




I'll have the decals one for you within the week. Sorry guys.

    1. I actually never even thought of that. My hair has only recently stopped falling out, maybe it is pregnancy related! My nails definitely haven't been the same since the boys were born.

    1. I was pretty sick of the square ones too! I've seen some coloured round ones on Born Pretty that look really cool, neon ones.

    1. I know! Between nail breaks, hair loss, stretch marks, no sleep......it's the gift that keeps on giving!! But one day you turn around and they're up to your shoulder and answering you back so I'm definitely not in a hurry for this phase to end ;-)

  6. Better late than never! Everyone has real life things that get in the way.

    I think the stars would be cute as part of a sea themed nail look, like starfish!
