Halloween Manicure: Holographic Mummies and Born Pretty nail art brush set review #40899

Hallow, hello!
Today, I am sharing a manicure I did for a Halloween nail art prompt, “mummies”. For this mani, I freehand the design using a set of nail art brushes I’ve received from Born Pretty.
“Mummies” is one of the themed nail art challenge prompt from #clairestelle8Halloween for 2017.

Products used:

  • Born Pretty nail art brush set #40899
  • Wikkid polishes in Ultra Holo “Parma Violet”, “Candy Floss”, “Chartreuse” and “Shades of Jade”
  • Wikkid “Ultra shine top coat”
  • Black and white acrylic paints

To recreate:
1. Paint your nails with your chosen holo nail polishes
2. Hand draw the bandages by using diagional lines across the nails
3. Add eyes
4. Add top coat onto all nails

I quite enjoy freehand nail art, this design is easy to complete and fun to do. I wished I took more care in drawing the lines, this is what happens when you need to wear glasses but don’t! ha!
Although this is cute, as a scaredy cat in her trun form. I got the creeps and had to take this design off soon after taking pictures! gosh I need to grow up and be brave, wahahaha!

This looks cute (but creepy scary to me), what do you think? 🙂

Mini review on the Born Pretty Liner Brush Set #40899
This is a set of 3 nail art brushes, these have gourd handles to make it very easy to handle and let the user have a firm and steady grip on the brush.
The bristles are not long, soft and very flexible. It makes them great for drawing and colouring in designs. The brush sizes of this set are very similar but they are not thin, the bristle lengths are different (see picture below).

These are not suited for ultra fine, detailed work. I use another set of BPS brushes for detailed work and thin lines. I do not expect 1 set of brushes to fit all my nail art design needs.

I love the grip handles on these brushes, they feel comfortable on the hand and glide effortlessly on the nail.
Overall, this nail art brush set is great and its price make it unbeatable! I can foresee myself reaching out for this set whenever I need a brush for stamping decal making, general nail art designs. (plus, I can finally retire my 3 years old brush set from BPS! They lasted me for 3 years and still hold up to all type of abuse I throw at them.)

This set of brushes are currently priced at USD $2.29 Born Pretty online store

Thank you for visiting and have a great day.
