With Valentine's day around the corner, I thought this was the perfect time to try out these Born Pretty Store rose and leaf stencils. I decided to just try out the roses to fit the Valentine's day theme. To use these stencils, all you have to do is cut out the size you want, and peal them off the plastic backing. Once your nail polish is try, stick on the stencils. Finally, paint over the image, and peal off the stencil right away.
To create this look, I started with a sheer pink base layer. Then I stuck on the rose stencils, and sponged on three different shades of pink polishes before I pealed off the stencils.
These stencils did not work well for me. They were super sticky, which meant they stayed on well...a little too well. They picked up some of my polish when I pealed them off. You can even see on my nails where the polish got messed up. The images are also huge. You can barely tell that they are roses on my nails, it just looks like blobs.
The only thing I liked about this manicure was the different color sponging, which had nothing to do with the stencils. I was really excited to use the leaf ones this fall, but I think I'm going to have to pass on that.
Have you tried out these Born Pretty Store rose and leaf stencils? Are you going to give them a go?
