Born Pretty Store sent me this scale nail vinyls to review for you. The last time I used stencils from this line, I used them as stencils. This time, I decided to leave the stencils on my nails and just top coat right on top!

12 Tips/Sheet Fish Scale Nail Vinyls Nail Art Manicure Stencil Stickers JV203

I started with two coats of Zoya Laurel which is from the Spring 2016 collection. Once dry, I put a mermaid nails stencil on each nail, clipping off the excess with cuticle clippers.


When you leave vinyls or striping tape on your nails like this, you always want to make sure that you use plenty of topcoat. You’ll always want to make sure that each and every edge of the vinyl gets sealed with topcoat. If any water gets under there at all, it will start pulling up off your nail. I will typically do the first coat with Seche Vite and then another, more detailed coat (after the SV dries) with a thinner topcoat that can really get into the grooves of the stencils.
