Product Review: Rose Water Decals

Hey guys! I’m doing my first review for Born Pretty Store today and I’m excited to share it with you! If you haven’t looked around Born Pretty before, they have a great selection of tools and decorations in their Nail Art section.
Today I’m reviewing these Floral Water Decals! I haven’t used water decals in a while, but these ones sparked my interest. I chose sheet #G105 for the oval frames (which probably seems a little odd considering how pretty the roses are) because they immediately gave me an idea for a cameo design.


The decals come in a one-sheet package and this particular sheet has 20 individual decals on it.



For three of the nails I started off with a base coat and 2 coats of Essie’s Master Plan and then used Essie’s Mink Muffs and Chelsea Queen’s tutorial to create a wood texture. For the other two nails, I used 3 coats of Essie’s Waltz.

When my nails were completely dry, I cut out the decals I wanted to use. The decals are well spaced-out on the sheet so you don’t have to worry about accidentally cutting into another decal.
With that being said, I did make some modifications to some of the decals. I used only the bottom part of the “I love travel” decals and cut around “Paris” on one of the rose decals; if the words don’t suit your needs it is possible to use only parts of individual decals.

Applying the decals was very simple. Once I was ready to put a decal on, I submerged it in a small container of room-temperature water for 20 seconds. When you remove the decal from the water, the design easily separates from the back and then you can apply it to the nail. While still wet, the decals don’t immediately adhere to your nail which is wonderful because it gives you a little bit of time to move the decal around and make sure it’s placed right where you want it.

Once you have the decal in place, just take a dry paper towel and dab the nail to sop up any excess water.


Once I had finished with the decals, I painted in the silhouettes of the cameos, sealed in the designs with a top coat, and added some gold 2mm square studs to finish the design.


I really liked the decals and love how they look with the design. Like other water decals, you don’t have to worry about this type of sticker peeling off at the edges because they’re so thin and seem to blend right in to the polish. This set of decals sells for US$2.86 per sheet and comes in two other floral designs.
