Hi lovelies, sorry I've been away for a while but I hope to change that and get back into my posting rhythm. Since today's post is quite a large one let's just jump right into it. Today I'm sharing the latest round of products I was sent to review from Born Pretty Store, there's a little bit of everything in here lol.

Let's start with my least favorite thing, the nail strips. I chose a galaxy design because I have been in love with those manis lately. The package says they can be used for fingers and toes and you get twelve strips in each pack. There are application instructions on the back but you don't get a file, which you do with most strips.
 These were easy to use and I'm very happy to report that I didn't have any issues with the sides lifting, which if you've been here a while you know is my big issues with most nail strips. These seem to have an almost jelly like feel to them so maybe that helped hold them down. My big complaint, and the only reason that I didn't like them, was I had a lot of trouble finding the right sizes for my nails. They don't look that bad in photos but I hated them in person! If you have a more uniform sized nails then these would probably work wonderfully for you.

Next up is the square stamper, something that I have been wanting to try for quite a while. I would say that the consistency (is that the right word? lol) is more of a squishy firm while I was hoping for a squishy. I did try it un-primed and found that it did not pick up entirely. I quick swipe of a nail file and a wash with some dish detergent and it worked like a charm.
I knew that I wanted to test this using one of the harder images to keep straight, lines. I chose to use the slanted lines from pate QA91. Please skip the accent nail as we will talk about that in a moment. I used Mundo de Unas Aqua to stamp over Mentality Holo, which I bought as a holo topper but found it too opaque for that. I can't believe how easy it was to line up the stamp using the square stamper and how perfect it came out! I also think it'll come in handy for using the smaller sized full image stamps and the individual images, I definitely recommend checking this out.

The last two items I have are some round loose glitter and 3d Rose studs. I forgot to take a photo of the roses :( To use the loose glitters I decided to do something that has been on my to-try list forever, a full nails glitter placement. I started with one coat of CG For Audrey and then use a slow-drying topcoat over that. Once the top coat of tacky but not wet (thank you Tunay Na Mahal for pointing this out) I started laying the glitters down in rows. I apparently didn't wait long enough to begin with so please forgive the slight dents.

 For the rose I just used some topcoat to attach it since I knew that I wouldn't be wearing it very long.
While I didn't have any issues with the products itself not working it just isn't for me. I cant deal with something sticking that far up off my nail. It does make for cute photos though.

Overall every products worked just like it was intended so I have no complaints there, it's just that some didn't suit my taste or fit my nails. I really recommend that you try out the stamper if you are into stamping. What do you ladies think? As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed :)
