Hello Loves. As you may have noticed, I'm on a bit of a bow kick lately. When I was given the opportunity to select a few items to review for Born Pretty Store, these Sweety White Bowknot Pearl Studs nearly jumped off the page.
It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of country music, and a line from a song popped into my head when I saw these bows.
"And when we went to dinner you wore blue jeans with your pearls
That's when I knew you were my kind of girl"
My Kind of Girl - Collin Raye (1994)
Needless to say, I knew I had to have them for this denim and pearls manicure!
I was pleasantly surprised when these arrived to learn that they aren't flat on the back like a lot of bows. These are slightly curved, which is awesome if your nails have deep c-curves like mine. I usually have to build up a platform for bows to rest on with gel. In this case, I was able to stick them on with a bit of nail glue and the curved back allowed enough contact with my nail for them to stay put. :) The pearls also seem to be firmly attached to the base. I wore this manicure for a week and none of the pearls popped off even though I didn't topcoat over the bow with gel like I usually would.
Here's another shot of the manicure.
And finally, a closeup of the bow itself since the contrast between the dark denim polish and the white bow doesn't photograph as well as I like. You can see the detail much better here. I had to play with the contrast on the photo a bit, so excuse the weird skin tone. With the little rhinestone accents, these would be perfect for a wedding manicure too!
So, how about you? Are you a denim and pearls kind of girl? Or do you save your pearls for special occasions?
