Born Pretty Superhero Nail Stickers: Review & Swatches

I love comic books. I love nail polish. So I'm bound to a fan of anything that effectively marries those two passions. As soon as I saw these superhero nail decals on Born Pretty Store's website, I had to have them, no question!

I had waaayyyy too much fun with these! First, I did some Flash nails...

 Base: Pure Ice Crimson

 ...then some Batman ones...

...then Superman!

I really love the idea of these decals, but application was a little tricky. I couldn't get them to quite adhere to the nail and then they kinda crinkle up if you brush over them too much with topcoat, so it was tricky to get them to stay exactly where I wanted them to on the nail. This has been an issue with a couple metallic decals I've used in the past. You have to be very careful with how you apply the topcoat. Interestingly enough, the Superman ones were easier to work with than the other decals. I did soak them for quite a bit longer (I put them in the water then got distracted for a few minutes) so maybe that had something to do with it? I dunno...

Still, I had a really good time with these and for just two bucks and some change, you can make a ton of different manicures with just this one decal set! I do wish they were a bit more forgiving to work with, but overall I enjoyed these and I think they're worth a look if you're a superhero fan.
