Born Pretty Feather Nail Art Water Decals: Review & Swatches

I've reviewed some of these decals from Born Pretty Store before that came in a zipper design and the resulting mani was one of my all-time favorites. So naturally, I was dying to try some more of these decals. They make it look like you spent hours on your nails when really it only takes a few minutes!

The decals I tried out this time around (check 'em out on the Born Pretty website HERE) feature all kinds of feathers. You get a huge sheet of decals featuring 11 different feather designs. Each design has 20 decals each, so that's over 20 manis from a set that costs less than five bucks! That's an awesome value! Here's a look at all the designs you get.

Applying these decals is extremely easy. Remember putting on temporary tattoos as a kid? These basically work like that! You stick the decal in some water, peel the decal off its paper backing (I find tweezers help) then place on your nail. If you mess up, the decals are still adjustable while wet, so you can move them around until they're perfect. Then just seal everything in with topcoat. Super simple!

You could create hundreds of different looks with all the decals that come on this sheet. Here's one I came up with using decals from 5 of the 11 design sections and with Illamasqua Scorch, a white creme, as my base!

I also did a second mani using the peacock feather decals, with Precision You're In De-Nile River for my base. (I've got a big Precision review coming up soon too!)

These decals are yet another example of an awesome nail art product from Born Pretty. Whether you're a nail art pro or n00b, I think you'll love these! The decals are beautiful, high quality and very nicely priced, especially when you consider the fact that you're getting 11 design themes and over 200 decals here.

If you decide to pick up any Born Pretty goodies, they've been nice enough to provide this 10% off code for Nailed readers!

  1. Ahh how cool! Their decals are so awesome and I love how you can create so many different looks with these :D

    1. Thanks! I know, I love the variety you get with this pack especially!

  2. Hm... I tried to buy a sheet of stickers from them, and when I entered the coupon code, nothing happened?

    It's not a HUGE deal, given that it's only $2, but do you know if the code expired?

    1. Hmmm, as far as I know, the code doesn't expire. Did you make sure to type it in all caps? I know the code is case sensitive.
