Hello there!!
Today I have a fun mani AND a tutorial for you! I picked out these triangle patterned nail vinyls stencils from BornPrettyStore.com to review for you guys. I have not tried stencils before and was anticipating on what I can do with them. I decided to go for a soft back ground and a strong color for the triangles. So this was what I came up with!



The tutorial is below so you may take a look! 


I used Sinful Colors "Snow Me White" as the white base color. For all top coats, I used none other than Glisten & Glow "HK Girl Top Coat". 

For the saran/cling wrap technique, I used all China Glaze polishes in "Something Sweet", "Light As Air", "Lemon Fizz" and "For Audrey". I chose the pastel colors that I had to create the paddle pop effect. The white base below helps to bring out the colors better.

As for the sponging over the small triangle stencils, I used a cosmetic sponge and Sinful Colors "Black On Black". I also used black acrylic paint and a liner brush that I got from BPS to outline the big triangle on my accent nail.

I really am loving how these turned out and I am pretty sure you can easily get this look by using the stencils! They were really sticky so there will be minimal bleeding of polish on the smaller triangles. Also, I found that you can reuse the stencils so that you won't be wasting your money! But do take note that after a few uses it may lose the stickiness and polishes may bleed under the vinyls.

Overall, I really feel that stencils are fun and easy to use! Have you tried them? Tell me your experiences with them in the comments :) 

Have a great day!!
