Press sample: The nail vinyls and nail art mat were sent to me by Born Pretty Store
for my honest review.

Born Pretty Store have kindly sent me more items to review! In this post I'll be talking about two sets of nail vinyls, as well as their new nail art mat. I also have some water decals that will feature in an upcoming post.

I've done two nail designs using the vinyls - check out the full post to have a look. There's also a video tutorial showing how to make decals using the vinyls and the mat.

ABC Challenge 'R': Retro reverse stamping

The ABC Challenge is back! If you haven't heard of this before, this is a weekly nail art challenge hosted by Emiline of Nail Polish Society. Each week centers around a different letter of the English alphabet, and the previous letter was 'Q' back in August. The challenge took a break in September, and now it's back, with the letter 'R'.

I decided to go for one of my favourite nail art techniques, reverse stamping. I also picked a retro-style pattern for an additional R element.
