Review: Dried Flowers

Hi all, I received a gift from Born Pretty Store! I know some of you have heard and bought some items from this site. They're selling Nail Art Stuff which are very cheap and affordable! BTW,I used first the dried flowers that I got from Jessica of born pretty, I love how it looks, they look simple yet elegant. i think it's perfect for all occasions, in my 1st design, I picked the powder blue color for the base coat because it's much prettier when you use lighter shade...☻
Then I stamp it with m57 konad image plate net design and co5 octagon butterfly design. After that, I put blue and yellow dried flowers on my nail tips.
In my 2nd design, I made a red gradient effect, dark red from the tip fading to lighter red to the cuticle area.... Then i sticked some dried flowers on the tip of my nails.. I also added pearl beads...that's it!

Hope you like them! expect more design from me using dried flowers!

Anyway.. Have you tried using dried flowers? Do you like them? which of my design do you prefer? The blue or the red one?

NOTE: This product was sent to me as a gift. I made this review based on my own ideas and preference on how to use them. My opinions about the quality of the said products are based on my personal judgements and the outcome of my usage.

I named it “Happy Bunny 2011″ I used “color club art of seduction” for the base coat, then I stamped it twice with HB 31 image plate to make the design full… I used chg 2030 for stamping, after that, I sponged 2 black dots, then stamped again with H19 image plate (the chinese character which means “Happiness” in english word). I used white special polish, and last but not the list, I stamped B104 image plate bunny design,I used dotting tool for the bunny eyes and apply top coat.
