Zebra stipes and pears

Posted on Monday, November 22, 2010 | 14 Comments

Jessica from Bornprettystore.com sent me some wonderful nail art items to review so I decided to use a few of the items together to create my manicure today.

I used:

I loved these!  It adds a little extra oomph to the manicure. I also love having 3 different sizes to choose from, when I get these from a craft store I have to buy different sizes individually and it gets pricey and annoying.

I used the tool that is rounded on one end and has a pointy tip on the other end

I was very disappointed  with the steel balls because the colors were mixed up.   I would not recommend purchasing these, instead, purchase the individual packaged steel balls.

The rhinestones I used were not sent to me for review. I bought them from ebay but Born pretty sells a similar rhinestone wheel

On to the Manicure:

  •   I applied China Glaze 2NITE diagonally on my tips
  •  Konaded zebra stripes using image plate M57 with Wet'nWild Black creme
I had a problem with not all the zebra print transferring so I used the black 2 way nail art brush to draw in some of the lines ( I will do another review for the 2 way nail art pens)
  • Cleaned up the nail stamping with a paint brush and pure acetone
  •   Used the 2 way nail art pen in silver glitter diagonally
On top of the glitter line, I stuck on blue rhinestones, pearls, and silver steel balls using the dotting tool

  •  And then of course top coat to make it all shiney =)
  • you can see that a pink steel ball was placed onto my index finger, this is due to the steel balls all mixing up during the shipment. =(  It's hard to separate the colors now
I live in Canada and it took 1 week for the shipment from Hong Kong to arrive. This is incredible, usually it takes 2+ weeks for anything shipped outside of North America. I was very impressed with the shipment. Everything was packaged tightly and with bubble wrap.

I am very pleased with http://www.bornprettystore.com. In the future I would love to get the 18 Colors Acrylic System Nail Art Powder Liquid Mold set.  I hope they get more molds =)

Disclaimer - The products were sent to me for review with no payment. My opinion is an honest one.


  1. OMG!!..Gorgeous mani hun..I love it especially the zibra print..^_^..

  2. WHOA! Your nail art never ceases to amaze me. It takes so much precision!!! How long does it take you?! Your nails are so gorgeous.

    Oh, I JUST read the comment and answered it on my blog, but my pink coat is Marc Jacobs (like his old stuff) that I bought from Buffalo Exchange. Ya, I should show you the inside lining, it's sooooo cute! Red and white pinstripes lol.

    @Nancy: Marc Jacobs jacket? Drools. That is why it’s such a gorgeous jacket, I can tell from the photo the cut of the jacket is really great quality. That’s the one thing I have a weakness for…well made coats. Drools. I do own a few cheap crappy coats for wear and tear wearing but nice coats..sigh~

    @PaO* Thanks! I’m glad you like it

    @Rachel Marie: it’s a pretty great store, the shipping is quite fast and the shipping prices are reasonable. I ‘ll prob end up ordering the acrylic kit. Don’t forget to use the coupon codes supplied by the website

    @Katrina: get your hands on different sized pearls!! I realized that I Really like different sized things, they give nail art more depth

    @Danielle: Thanks Danielle!

    @Joice: Thanks! I know I sound crazy but I couldn’t stop looking at my nails.

    @Zara: Thanks so much for your kind compliment -)

    @Dee: I can’t wait to see what you come up with when you get the stuff!! I’m still a bit overwhelmed with what to do with them

    @Varnish Vixen: The shipping was incredible! I’m still waiting for a few items in the mail from the states and nothing yet but from china..woah one week!
