Will it peel, will it stick?

I'm starting the weekend with a review of 2 products, and 2 matching manis! Let's take a look at one of the finished results first, I'll share my thoughts on the products further down.

BornPrettyStore send me their peel off liquid tape product, which came in a simple white bottle without any information on it. I've only tried 1 peel off product before and even though I love that stuff, a cheaper version wouldn't hurt! So I hoped this would be just that.
The first thing I noticed was the scent of the product; it smells like citrus, which was a nice surprise, although I don't like it more or less than the usual chemical smell. It applied fairly easy, but as you can see on the side of my thumb, it didn't stay together so well. That worried me a little, how can it peel off in 1 go when there's little bits and pieces on my fingers? On the bright side, my fingers didn't stick together and peel off the product when accidentally touching another finger with the product, which is the case with my usual stuff.

Here's the bottle and, oh boy, the first peel. That doesn't look too good!

Right. No, this isn't what I'm looking for! I had to scratch it off my skin to start peeling, and had to scratch off lots of loose bits and pieces afterwards. Yikes! I tried to apply thicker coats on a 2nd attempt, but then it just wouldn't dry... According to their information on the website, it would normally dry within 5 minutes.

Now I'm not sure if it's just my bottle, the product gets good reviews on the website and I've had products go bad during transport before, so maybe that's the case here too? But I don't know that, and I'm sharing my experience with the product that I have here. Or maybe this specific peel off just needs a little practice to get the right amount on your skin?
If you want to try it out, you can find it here on the BPS website. A bottle of 15ml costs $4.59 (don't forget to use couponcode ABJ61 for 10% off!).

The next product that I received are these stickers:


This sheet has the most adorable images, don't you think? They're so pretty and sweet!


The stickers stuck to my nails at first, although I think they're a little on the thicker side and the tiny flowers didn't like the curve of my nails as much. So on some parts the edges came loose. My top coat didn't exactly make things better... From a distance it looks pretty good nevertheless, but these big photos are showing clear lines. I think they'll work better on flatter nails, and I'll stick them on something else instead, because I think they're so cute that I almost forget about how they sit on my nails!

You can find the stickers here, a sheet costs $3.69 (coupon code ABJ61 gives 10% off).
