Born Pretty Store review: Swarovski flatback clear crystals

This beautiful set of Swarovski clear crystals was kindly offered to me from Born Pretty Store for this review. You can find it on their web site with this name: 144 Swarovski flatback SS8 Clear Crystal 2028 Nail Art, item ID: 420.  

The little bag that Born Pretty Store sends as sample contains 14 pieces of Swarovski clear crystals, otherwise you can buy the bigger bag that contains 144 pieces. 

These Swarovski crystals are foil backed, which gives them superior shine and glamour, they are cut with high precision which gives them the capacity to create beautiful prisms :-)
The diameter of each crystal is 2,30-2,40 mm. 

These crystals have a flat backing surface and you can apply them on your natural or artificial nails or on surfaces of other things that you want to decorate. 

Applying them on my nails was very easy. I used a moisturized manicure stick to pick up a crystal and then put it on nail polish that was still wet. At the end I sealed the manicure with one layer of top coat. 

If you would like to decorate other things like mobile phones, jewellery boxes etc. you should use some glue and let everything dry at least 24h.

Overall, these Swarovski crystals are easy to work with and they are really sparkly and beautiful, perfect for some elegant nail art manicures! 

Here is my manicure, I hope you like it! :-)

Kiko n° 522 Pearly Sapphire Blue

  1. The crystals add that little extra, but I love the mani without them too!

    1. Thank you, Maria! :-) These crystals are very shiny and elegant and they give an extra "touch" to the manicure! :-)

  2. The design is really cool! I like it and I agree with Maria, the crystals do add a little extra! :-)

    1. Thank you, Ananka! :-) They are really very elegant! :-)

  3. Lovely design and that clear crystal is like a raindrop on your nails, looks gorgeous!

  4. Baš super izgleda, iako nisam sigurna bi li Swarovski nosila na noktima (bilo bi mi ih šteta!) :)

    1. Najverovatnije je ovo neka kopija Swarovski kristalcica, inace bi bili skuplji, samo zaista su sjajniji nego normalni nail art kristalcici... :-)

  5. krasna je ova, podrzavam i kristalcic :)
