Chocolate Covered Strawberries

I've been a very bad girl and pretty made the most epic haul of my life, I haven't decided if I should post, although it could be a good way to self-shame me into saving some dolla bills. I've had the bragging rights of winning a few football pools and was fortunate enough to receive a nice bonus for Christmas. Included in the goodies was my first large order from Born Pretty Store. I'm such a fan of their water decals.

I have very round nails and stickers are really not my friends as they tend to come right up after a few hours or so. These water decals are the perfect alternative and stay nice, smooth and flat. I wanted to do my first Valentine's Day nails with some of them. This is two coats of Barielle Pink Flip-Flops. This is a gorgeous bubble gum pink that probably could have been opaque in one coat. I did two to even things out. I then used the water decals with chocolate strawberries and cupcakes.

Lastly, I used the first stamping plate I've purchased from them to add the tips and flower accents. This is plate QA51 and so far it's stamped beautifully with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Mochachino. Do you use water decals?

  2. These are so cute! I absolutely love chocolate strawberries so naturally this manicure is perfect. I think you should definitely post your amazing haul (if you can't share it with fellow polish addicts who can you share it with really?? lol). Also, if you're interested in possibly getting even MORE polishes....I'm running a 100 follower giveaway on my blog!
