BORN PRETTY STORE: Heartbeat Stickers & Wet N Wild Stop and Mel-the-Roses

Born Pretty Store Heartbeat Stickers $2.94

Happy FRIDAY! Today I'm reviewing the Heartbeat Sticker Sheet from Born Pretty Store. Check out more about these stickers and how I used them in a mani after the jump!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Born Pretty Store, it's an online discount store that offers TONS of nail related items. You can find stamping plates, nail decals, polish, and more at great prices (frequently under $5.00 USD!). The only down side is that is they are located Asia so shipping can take awhile. On the plus side, shipping is free worldwide. To ease your mind a bit - aside from review items, I've purchased may times from BPS and never had any issues :]

I created a nail art design using the two chevron designs on the sticker sheet. This sheet comes with 3 separate designs - multi chevron, single chevron, and EKG inspired design. The chevrons come in 3 different sizes each.

I love how these nail stickers are awesome foil finish. I combined the multi chevron and the single chevron to create this mani.

The multi chevrons were super easy to work with and apply. They adhered to my nails well and blended in seamlessly with clear backing they were on. I like how they came in 3 different sizes, allowing the designs to match different sizes nails.

I ran into issues with the single chevron designs. As you can see, there is some buckling along the outer edges of the sticker. Like the multi chevrons, the single chevrons have the same clear adhesive backing. The only problem is that the large blank space in the middle of the chevron is ALL clear adhesive. I believe that is the cause of the buckling, because the clear part seems to "stretch" in removal and application, in combination with the curvature of my nails.

I decided to skip the EKG-inspired decals because they would be subjected to the extreme curvature of my nails like the larger chevrons. I might pull them out at a later time though :P

...In conclusion - these stickers have an awesome foily gold finish. The stickers seamlessly blend into your polish thanks to the clear backing. Not so much thanks to the clear backing, it also causes the larger chevrons to stretch which causes buckling after application.
