Born Pretty Store Dried Flowers Manicure and Review

I received an offer from The Born Pretty Store to review their nail art Dried Flowers. I have been wanting to try these flowers for a while so I couldn't resist. The package contains 12 different flowers, each one in it's own little plastic jar.


Six of the jars contain small five-petal flowers. Each jar contains five flowers of one color. I got lucky and got six yellow flowers in one of the jars. All the rest had five flowers...


The other six jars contain cluster flowers, two flowers in each jar. These flowers dyed so they are a bright color on one side and mostly while on the other. I think they can be used on either side. Depends on the desired effect...


I chose to use the purple cluster flowers for my manicure and applied them over Color Club Secret Rendezvous. Because there are only two flower clusters of each color and I didn't want to mix colors in my manicure, I cut the flowers apart to have enough for each nail. I applied about one third of the cluster on the ring finger as an accent. The rest I separated into individual little flowers and applied on other nails. I am really impressed just how perfect these tiny flowers are...



A flower I stole from my mom's garden... :)


The flowers were very easy to use and are so pretty for spring. I only wish that there were more of each flower in this package... :D

Have you tried these dried flowers before? I would love know what you think of them.

I have a few other ideas to try out with these flowers so I will hopefully be showing those soon :)

You can find these Dried Flowers at The Born Pretty Store. They were kind enough to send a 5% off code that you can use on any purchase.



Thanks for looking!
Anutka :)
