Review: Some Born Pretty Store products

Hello everyone~ :) Sorry for the lack of posting recently, I haven't had as much time with Uni starting again - I'm absolutely swamped with assignments. I did receive some products from Born Pretty Store awhile ago so I thought I'd get this post up sooner rather than later! First up are the cuticle oil in lemon and rose scents (I couldn't find the lemon scent on the site for some reason). Pros and cons?

- The scent isn't too overpowering
- Compact and easy to carry around
- Has a brush to rub in the oil - no need to get oil all over your fingers!

- I couldn't for the life of me get any oil out even after constantly twisting it. And then all of a sudden, a whole lot comes out at the brush. I ended up with cuticle oil EVERYWHERE.
- Both tubes look the same. In fact, I can't tell any differences in smell from them.
- The oil leaves a sticky feeling behind on my cuticles.
- My cuticles didn't feel any more moisturised after use.
- I'm not sure there is actually 8ml of product as advertised on the website.

My verdict? Not worth it. Yes, it's cheap at only $1.79 each or even $10.52 for 10 but I didn't feel any change except for sticky fingers.

Okay, with the bad out of the way and done with, lets move onto the more worthy products to purchase! :) Below are 12 Nail Art Foil Gold Orange Green Decoration Set Glitter New and 10 styles Gold Lace 3D Nail Art Tips Decals Stickers Manicure.

I'm a little unhappy with the way my stickers were carelessly folded and packaged - the least that could have been done was to fold along the bits which didn't have stickers on it :(

But anyway, here's a look I created with the foil and stickers. Quick and easy! I loved working with the foil pieces, I simply held onto a sheet and used a tweezer to pull off little bits of it. I had in mind to create a gold flake top coat, but I don't think I quite achieved the look. I should have probably torn the foil into smaller pieces. The stickers stuck on very well and I look forward to playing around with it more. Especially eyeing that butterfly design ;)
