Review: Charlie's Nail Art Star Charms (over Sassy Pants Polish To All A Good Night + Born Pretty Store BP-L056!)

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


Today we're gonna take a look at some star charms that were sent to me for review by Charlie's Nail Art:

The moment I saw these, I thought they'd make the most adorable mani with the stars and constellation mani from Born Pretty Store BP-L056 (you can see my video review of this plate here):

I started with a base of Sassy Pants Polish To All A Good Night, and stamped first the stars-in-circles image on the upper left with Hit The Bottle Polishes Amethyst Sizzle, then the constellations image with Messy Mansion Chalk, then I put on the star charms:

So first, let me say that I love so much about this mani--I love the way the base polish and the Amethyst Sizzle work together to creat a great night sky--even though the white stamping over the top obscures the pattern, the colors are lovely together, and I'm in love with that constellations image.


That said, the stars are just not right for my nails. I actually think they look cute, but they're just too big for someone like me that has curvy nails, they just stick out way too far:




Even with industrial strength nail glue, these are gonna pop right off, or destroy some article of clothing I love. If you have large, flat nail beds they may work for you, but even on my thumb, which is broader and flatter, they were problematic:




Definitely less so, but still too much pointy stick-outage to make this a viable look for me. Like I say, though, if you have broad flat nails, these might work for you--I'll be wearing the rest of mine on my big toes come summer sandal time.

Happy Stamping,

  2. I like the stamping plate, but that charm is such an obnoxious size.
