Born Pretty Store: Heart Rhinestone and Pearl Nail Wheels

Hello ladies,

For the past several months, I have had a chance to experiment with the heart rhinestone and pearl nail wheels from Born Pretty Store. I have had a positive experience with all three nail wheels I received and have enjoyed using them to embellish my nails. 

The heart rhinestone wheel features 12 colors. The shades are bright and the facets are even. The hearts pick up the light beautifully. These rhinestones are salon quality and I would definitely recommend them. My Butterfly Season nail look is an example of how these hearts can add a sense of joy and candy sweetness to your manicure.

The colorful half pearls are a simple way to add elegance to your nails. I used the blue pearls in my Butterfly Fantasia manicure. For help visualizing, these are the size of standard rhinestones in a nail wheel. You will notice in the photos that some of the pearls cling to the top of the wheel. They will settle over time when stored flat. As you first use the wheel, rotate it open slowly. This will keep the pearls from popping out. I find it easiest to apply pearls and rhinestones over the sink with the drain stoppered. If any escape, they are easy to capture.

I absolutely love the pearls in the three sizes nail wheel. I employed the largest and the smallest pearls in my Garter Toss manicure. The pearls included come in approximately 4mm, 3mm and 1.5mm sizes.

Application for the hearts and pearls is simple. Place a tiny dab of topcoat on the nail. Use a pick up tool to add the decoration and seal with one or two layers of topcoat. Even if your prefer a simple manicure, one heart or pearl placed near the cuticle is a quick way to dress up a basic look.

For more examples of my work with their products, you can explore posts with the Born Pretty Store label. Have you ladies had the chance to try out any nail art supplies from Born Pretty? Is there anything catching your fancy?

The heart rhinestones, colorful pearls and pearls in three sizes were sent to me for review. These are available at

Happy painting, ladies!


  1. I have the first 2 wheels and have only begun scratching the surface with them as I don't stamp and am clueless without a guide. Good to know that I'm working with some good stuff though!

  2. kittypolishnbags: Absolutely! If you have questions about application, you know where to find me. Happy to help when I can. :)

  3. Love the look of the pearls! Specially in your example of the Garter Toss! Need to get my hands on some of these:)

  4. Would you say these art wheels are about the same with regards to quality/quantity compared to Bundle Monster nail art wheels? Which brand are you more likely to recommend?

  5. Audrey L: Having three sizes of pearls to choose from is so useful! Thank you for your compliment on my Garter Toss manicure!

    thalie: The Bundle Monster nail wheels are smaller. The compartments are stuffed and the contents drift from one to another. I love the variety of embellishments, but they are poorly organized. Each wheel has a mix of colors and styles. It's hard to find what you are looking for. I may end up reorganizing the Bundle Monster wheels.

    The Born Pretty wheels are easier to work worth with. While I use both, I prefer having my wheels better organized. I hope that helps. :)

  6. I really like Born Pretty Store, great products at great price!

  7. I love all the embellishments but my nails are usually short. I think they just don't look as nice with a jewel on them. I do love the looks you use them with.
