Hey guys! Today I have a really simple tutorial featuring the gold cross stickers (item #22187) that I was sent for review from bornprettystore.com!

First I began with 2 coats of Lili St Cyr from Gothic Gala Lacquer! This is a grass green linear holographic polish. I then topcoated with Flash Dry from Bohemian Polish. Here is a shot of it in the sun:

I then used black acrylic paint and a small detail brush and painted in a coffin shape on my nail. You can do this even if your nails aren’t coffin/ballerina shaped!

Next I chose the cross patterns from Item #22187 and used my thumb nail to slightly push up the edge of the stickers. I then used tweezers to easily remove them from the backing and placed them directly onto my nail.

They have a sticky backing and are super easy to re-position until you get them just perfect! I then topcoated with Flash Dry once more. I tried my hand at outlining them in gold but I really didn’t enjoy how they looked but I thought I’d share some photos anyway! Here is the finished mani:
