How has everyone's Easter break started? We've had a great Good Friday. We ventured out with the kiddos over to the Stromlo bike park, which is a dedicated bike playground, with lots of places to ride your bike for all ages. I was a very proud mummy to watch my Mr 5 ride without training wheels on his bike for the first time. He was zooming around like a little pro. His little Miss 3 sister was doing a great job keeping up on her balance bike. Balance bikes are just the best invention ever, I reckon she be riding a pedal bike without trainers within a month or two.
I've also taken a few days off work next week, as I'm sure there will be a lot of other Aussies doing the same thing. With Easter Monday and the Anzac Day public holiday on Friday, taking three days off means a string of 10 days off. Whoo hoo. The funny thing is though, that I'm in a bit of a nail polish rut at the moment and I can't really get inspired to paint nail art and swatching polishes is boring the crap out of me. I'm not sure how much nail stuff I'll do over my holidays?
Lets move onto today's nail stuff.
I am definitely someone that will happily use a quick and easy nail sticker design as much as I will sit down and paint fine details in hand drawn nail art. I really love nail stickers and think they fill a very important place in the nail world, especially where they can provide detailed and intricate nail art to people that either don't have the skill or the time to create the designs from scratch.
Take these nail stickers for example. There isn't really anything difficult about them, the entire design could be recreated using stamping, dotting and nail art brushes. It would however take an hour or more to create. Instead I had these beauties applied in about 20 minutes.
I bought these stickers from the Born Pretty store last year before Christmas and just had them sitting there for when I didn't feel like creating something fancy myself. The brand is Melody and I have previously done a wear test on them with the Ms Cat design.
Like I said, I purchased these from the Born Pretty Store last year, and back then I commented on the very poor state of their shipping (it took them four weeks to actually mark my item as posted, then another two weeks after that). Has anyone shopped at the BPS more recently? Have they improved their turnaround times yet? I'm thinking of placing another order because they always have lots of new and interesting nail stock.
