Ancient Egypt

Egypt nails have been on my to-do list for quite some time.  After discovering this fun little sarcophagus charm, I found the motivation to get this design crossed off the list. Only a hundred more to go :)

 GHLQ10I received this wheel of charms from Born Pretty Store in exchange for an honest review.  The wheel contains some Egyptian charms, various sea creatures, unicorns, a pegasus, an elephant, and a reindeer. It is a nice mix of charms and at a great price!  I like that there is not only a variety of types of charms, but also sizes - some are large, while some are tiny.  The charms have a slightly curved back to better adhere to the shape of your nail.  I can't wait to try them all!
