I didn't disappear again, honest! I had an exam last week so I went in to hermit revision mode. Don't know why I bothered though - it was awful! Wine in the pub afterwards was lovely though...all's well that ends well.
I have a few Born Pretty Store nail art products to show you again, the first of which is this chain:
I've seen these around for a while, and I'm always somewhat intrigued by them. They don't seem like they'd be the easiest thing to use!
It turns out they weren't too bad actually :) I snipped them with some nail scissors (easy enough as long as you cut between the beads!) and stuck them on with top coat. I actually - you may want to sit down for this - used tweezers to position the chains. I know right... My mum bought me some great angled tweezers for Christmas which I now use for everything.
I did some skittles so you could get a few ideas how to wear them - that's a heart on my thumb in case you can't tell (it's totally obvious from a different angle, ahem...). I just did this manicure for this review, but if I was wearing it longer I'd probably file down the beads overhanging the tip of my little finger if going for that sort of look. The beads aren't too dense so I think it would be do-able. And I almost forgot! The polish is OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes.
If you like what you see, you can purchase this chain (and a whole host of other colours) here. It's £1.54 and you get a whole metre. That's a lot of beads. Don't forget, you can use the code LKL91 for 10% off and shipping is free to wherever you may be in the world. Happy shopping :)
