Born Pretty Dried Flowers Review!

Good morning, readers! I have a special post for you today!! I was in contact with the Born Pretty Store and asked to review their Dried Flowers for you all! Hopefully after this review you will love them as much as I do and want to try them out!

This is what will come when you order:
12 Different Dried Flowers in these cute reusable plastic containers! So much nicer than baggies!


6 different colors of smaller flowers. About 5-6 of each color.

6 different colors of bigger flowers. 2-3 of each color.


Now, let's see how they work!!

I picked a smaller green flower to put on my pinky nail. I suppose you could use tweezers to gently take them out but I was careful and dumped them onto my hand and picked one before dropping the rest back in. 


Apply a clear coat so it is tacky. Place the flower on the tacky polish and press down on all sides.  


Once it's stuck down, apply your thicker clear top coat. I did Poshe and didn't have any problems with it hurting the flower. I think I even ended up doing 2 coats once the first one dried so I was sure all of the edges were sealed.  


I also wanted to try out a bigger flower for you. I chose this blue one to try on my thumb. 
  


I did the same as with the smaller flower. Did a clear coat and stuck it down while it was still tacky. These were a little more difficult because there are so many steps and petals that need to be stuck down and I even went back with my clear polish and brush under a few that weren't sticking down.  


Then, take little scissors or edge/cuticle clippers and carefully trim the excess from around your nails.  


Then, again, use your thicker top coat to seal it all in. Poshe again, 2 coats.  


And here are the 2 finished nails. Neat, right? I love how vibrant the colors are against this fuchsia polish!

Do you like this look? I do, and am so glad I got to try it out! 

Born Pretty Store sells a ton of nail and beauty supplies at low prices! They ship from Hong Kong so it's about 2-3 weeks to deliver to the US, but well worth the wait for the price you pay as well as the quality.

The people at the Born Pretty Store were kind enough to give me a 5% off coupon code for all of you readers! Just use the code:  JACJ61 to get your 5% off!

  1. I have these myself and love them!!! I also had issues using an entire spray of mini flowers on a nail, and an amazing way to use them is to cut off the mini flowers and their stems and scatter a few on your nails ^_^ xx

  2. I never thought to put the dried flowers on natural nails. I always believed they would only work when making acrylics. That is gorgeous!

  5. I have been eyeing dried flowers for a while. They sell them at Sally's Beauty as well. But they cost more and you don't get the selection that you do at BP store. I will be adding these to my wishlist. Thanks for sharing your review!!
