Born Pretty Store Review: Oil Painting Water Decals

Today I've got a mani to show you, which features some water decals from Born Pretty Store.  These are the oil painting water decals, and they've got some beautiful designs to choose from.  Of course I chose pattern QQ-88, because it's a ballerina! 

Unfortunately I obviously didn't fully look through the description, because I received one big water decal (approximately 4.5x5.5cm) instead of the expected smaller individual-nail decals.  I was also disappointed by the fact that a large corner of the decal was unusable, because the white rectangles with the pattern number on them are actually on the decals themselves.  I was a bit sad that I wouldn't be able to get the whole dancer on my nail, but I plugged away in pencil on the back of the decals where I was going to cut pieces out for each nail.  I lay down two coats of LVX Fantom on all nails, and set to work applying the water decals.

As you can see, I only ended up with two nails actually covered in the decals.  These two were cut out from the edges of the decal, while all of the pieces I had cut out of the dancer in the center refused to stick to my nail.  I soaked them in water to remove from the backing, and the images were still stiff.  No amount of soaking would soften them up, and they wouldn't stick to top coat on my nail, or "shrink" onto my nail when I applied top coat over them, like what usually happens.  After trying again and again (there's only so many pieces you can cut out of the decal) I had to give up getting decals on the rest of my nails.  

I removed the rest of the white bases, and stuck on two coats of OPI Russian Navy, followed by a coat of Essie As Gold as it Gets for some more visual interest.  All nails are topped with a coat of Seche Vite.

You can purchase this product through Born Pretty Store here.  Despite my slight disappointment and frustration with the decals, I still really love how the final slightly-improvised mani came out!  I've had nothing but good experiences when using water decals from Born Pretty Store before, so I'm really not sure what was up with this one.  What do you think of the finished look?
