Midterms started this Friday for me! (yes Friday, not Monday) I was pretty lucky though because I technically did not have to take any midterms on Friday. Instead of a midterm for my first period class, I had a two hour class of AP calc. It wasn't as a bad as I had assumed since he did a mixture of lecturing and giving us work to do. I actually felt that the class was pretty helpful and I much rather have a class than take a midterm. There is so much more stress with a midterm since we basically have to study everything in class up to that point. This is not the best for me since I tend to cram before a test and regenerate my knowledge on the test and then never come back to it again. You can just imagine how stressful these big test are for me hehe!
Anyways, today I bring to you a haul of some items I received courtesy of Bornpretty. I did a quick show of these items in my christmas gifts post, but I will show the items to you in more detail!
Bornpretty is an online store that specialize in nail products such as the ones I have received. However that is not all they sell; they also have many items that range from accessories to makeup to even clothes. The prices on the site are very cute and unique. What makes it even better are the prices. Most items are under $5 and they offer free shipping for anything! All the items that I show here, come up to under $10!

I know Christmas has already occurred about a month ago (I cannot believe January 2014 is almost over!), but I had ordered these stickers for the holidays hehe. It's just that I didn't get them until after lol. It's okay though because it's still winter and Christmas is my favorite holiday. I am always in the mood for snowman, candy canes, and Ssanta Claus! ... I'm still a little kid at heart!
These stickers are 3D so they will pop up when you adhere them your nails. The stickers are also very shiny and capture the light perfectly. We have a mini snow storm heading our way this Wed. and I'm thinking to use these stickers on the day of the storm! Or I could be a rebel and put these stickers on my nails in the middle of the summer! hehe
The second item that I got is this adorable manicure box of animal decals. When I was looking through the site, these little decals immediately caught my eyes because I am honestly a sucker for anything cute. This little box contains a bunch of various animal decals. Each of the animals are are pretty small (which makes sense since our nails are small) so if you were to put these on your nails, you might want to use some tweezers. I really want to use these soon because the bunny and bear are calling my name! This little manicure box also comes with a section that contains glue for the nail decals. I like this a lot because if you were to put the decals on your plain nails, you could. I personally would just put them on top of wet nail polish and seal them in with a top coat though since I'm a bit lazy and lack coordination. hehe.
You might be wondering that this item is. I asked my sister if she wanted anything of the site and she actually chose quite a unique item. This is known as a "colorful crystal rhinestone chain" on the site and from the pictures I see, you can actually break this chain apart to your desired length and attach it onto your nails! I really love the chain itself and my sister and I agree that we can't bear to tear it apart. We might try to glue the chain closed and hang it up somewhere instead! =)

I actually did attempt konad this weekend, but slightly failed at it. I think it didn't work out because of my nail polish. I didn't have super thick polish available to me so I tried it with a semi thick polish which didn't work out. I got some prints, but not the whole picture. I will attempt to try konad stamping again once I pick up some thicker polishes!
Overall I really am very satisfied with Bornpretty, much more than I assumed I would have. The products are great quality and the prices are quite low! I love the wide range of items that they sell and I could see myself purchasing from them in the future. The only thing that is a negative would be the shipping time. It took ~ a month for the products to get here, though I have to blame some of that on it being the holidays. The customer service they have though does make up for this! If you want to purchase from Bornpretty, you can use the code MYBW10 for an extra 10% off! =)
