Born Pretty Gold Bow Review!

Hello readers! I have another Born Pretty item to share with you today. This time, I've tried out a pack of new foil metal gold bow nail accents. I also recently swapped for Whimsical Ideas By Pam Peanut Butter and Jelly and this was my first time trying it out. I thought it would go cute with a gold bow accent because of the gold glitters in it. I love the polish so much! It applied very easily and the name and color combo are adorable!

I used a piece of Born Pretty gold striping tape from my previous review HERE to make it look like it was part of the same gold "ribbon" in the bow.


You can see some hidden shimmer in Peanut Butter and Jelly!

This is the pack that I got. Look at how full it is! I'll never need more again.

I used:
Duri Rejuvacote
2 coats of Whimsical Ideas By Pam Peanut Butter and Jelly
1 coat of Poshe top coat

For the accent nail:
I did the striping tape before top coat. 
Then, one thick coat of top coat and added the bow so it "sank" into the wet top coat.
Follow up with another coat of Poshe to seal it in.

So, as for the bows, they are bendable so I actually bent mine a bit to lay flatter on my curved nail. They are a bit thick and would have needed a lot more top coat to smooth out if I had left them flat because of my nail shape. I'm glad I was able to mold it a bit. I'll definitely use them again, I already have a cute idea in my head for next month!

You can get these bows HERE at the Born Pretty Store among other nail art supplies and other foil nail accessories

  4. Gahhh, I love bows! These are so cute and definitely "my speed" of nail art, haha. I just wish they came in silver, gold doesn't work on my skin.

  7. This is such a cute mani!
    I tried to ignore Peanut Butter and Jelly mostly because Pam doesn't ship internationally, but I must admit it is gorgeous.
    But your added bow is simply the most adorable accent ever!
    I can't wait to see your next month's idea!!
