Born Pretty Store Perfect French Manicure Edge Tip Guides Product Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I will be sharing a product that I received from Born Pretty Store, which is an online store that sells nail art supplies, tools, polish, decals, and even home goods and clothes!  Born Pretty carries affordable products and you can purchase in bulk as well.

The product I am reviewing today is the Perfect French Manicure Edge Tip Guides (item: 6542).  They are stickers that you place on your nail to help guide polishing.  The best part about them is that they can be used for any design, not just a french manicure, which I show below.  The set I received contained 3 types (circle, arrow, and fancy).

Now let's get to some manis!

The circle nail guides are the classic french manicure shape.  I decided to use them on the slant/corner of my nail instead of straight across.  Be sure to use a quick dry top coat and allow your under polish to dry completely before using this product.  Once it is placed where you want it, paint another polish to create a "tip."  In this mani I used Pipedream Polish Validate Me as the under polish and Bicycle Built For Two from Drip Drop Nail Paint and topped it with a shiny top coat.

Next up is the fancy nail guides, which were like a little hill.  I decided to use these as a "deep" tip, so it resembled more of a half moon design.  These turned out very soft and delicate with the use of pink and gold.  I used Drip Drop Nail Paint's Pink Ferrari as the base and added Julep's Harlow and shiny top coat.  The bow is from Born Pretty Store.

The last look is using the arrow nail guide, which looks like a single chevron.  I decided to use this in the middle of the nail with stamping.  I painted my nails with Elevation Polish Ceram Sea and then applied the quick dry top coat and waited for it to dry.  Then I applied the nail guide(s), stamped with Winstonia Plate W112 and Drip Drop Nail Paint's Pink Ferrari and then after removing the guides added a silver line to accent the unstamped portion.  Then used a shiny top coat.

Shiny Top Coat: Quick dry top coat Seche Vite and shiny top coat is Gloss It from Krafty Gurl Designs

Loves:  This product really makes creating a french tip easy.  I love it because it pushed me to be creative when using the products.  I also love that Born Pretty Store products are affordable.

Wishes:  Love this product!  Wouldn't change a thing!
