Review: Nail vinyls from Born Pretty Store

UR Sugar nail vinyls review | polilish
Disclaimer: These nail vinyls were sent to me by Born Pretty Store for my honest review.

Today I have a new review post of these nail vinyls from Born Pretty Store. Have a look at the full post for all of the details, as well as three new nail designs.

I received three vinyl sets in total, each of which has two different patterns. Do have a look at the website to get a better look at what the vinyl sheets look like, as well as for more info on their dimensions, number of vinyls per sheet, and so on:

Rose and heart vinyls
Diamond and X-pattern vinyls
Stripes and 'Aztec' vinyls

There are lots of other patterns available too!

All of the vinyls I got worked very well. As you will be able to tell from the photos below, the patterns they created were crisp and clear. The little tabs on the edges of the vinyls also makes them very easy to handle. I always use tweezers to handle vinyls, but I imagine these tabs would make it easier to lift them with fingers too.

These are a nice way of creating intricate nail art without investing in tools like stampers and stamping plates. As long as the vinyls are used correctly, they'll work just fine. Make sure to always apply them over polish that is completely dry, and press them down very well. Also, always peel them off while the polish that you apply over the vinyl is still wet.

For the first design I used the rose vinyls (UR-012). Now, because I have very curved nails, I find it tricky to stick the large vinyls directly on my nails. The solution: use them on a nail art mat! I stuck the vinyls down on the mat, coloured in the pattern, and peeled off the vinyl right away. Then I applied a thin layer of clear polish over the pattern and let that dry completely for about 15 minutes. Once the decal is dry, I peeled that off and applied it to my nail. (Or just watch this in action in one of my previous video tutorials!)

Applying decals to my curved nails is still tricky business, but it is easier because the layer of clear polish is much thinner than the vinyl, and so it's easier for the decal to conform to my nails.

I also used the decal method for the diamond vinyls (UR-013). To create the gradient, I applied the two polish colours over each half of the vinyl, then scraped them over the vinyl using a standard stamping scraper to blend the colours together slightly.

For the third and last design I used the 'Aztec'-style vinyls (UR-010) directly on my nails. Instead of using the full vinyl, I only used the inner stripes to create this pattern.
