For a truly regal look, I started with a base of A England Avalon, the purple of my dreams! Finished off with Essie Good to Go! topcoat.
Application was quite fiddly, using nail glue, tweezers, and swearing. I recommend putting the glue directly on the crown, rather than the nail. This way, the glue kinda drips down onto the nail and creates a sort of "wall" between the deco and your nail. Maybe you knew that, but this was my first time gluing stuff on my nails so it was an "aha!" moment for me!
I LOVE how these look. They take a bit more time and some practice to apply, but they really add something special to your manicure. So head over to Born Pretty Store for these and more great nail art supplies, and don't forget to use our coupon code!
ETA: Because they're so big, I had trouble getting them to stay on for more than 12 hours. But those 12 hours of tacky, glamourous ultra-fab time were amazing. Highlight of my week.
