Today I have Born Pretty Store's nail decals for you on my blog!
Since I do stamping, nail stickers and decals did not seem necessary to me. I mean, I used nail stickers a lot, before I got into stamping, but after that, I did not need them anymore, because I had so many plates and so many options... :)
Then came the decals... I have to admit, I was curious about them. From what I have read, they were flatter and more long lasting than stickers. Everyone was talking about them and making cute nail designs so I had to try them!!
I chose K-167 pattern from Born Pretty Store. There are lots of other designs but this one looked so cute I picked it.
They come in a clear plactic bag. There is only one sheet available in the package and there are 20 designs on the sheet.
I prepped my nails first. I used Flormar 400, a one coater chalky white for my ring finger and thumb. And I used Flormar Wet Look WL05, bright pink, for the rest. The pink was also a one coater to my surprise!!!
Then I took my decals and a small cup of water and started working :)
There are big and small designs on the sheet, so I picked one that suited to my ring finger and cut it with scisoors. Then I took off the protective film and dipped the cut piece in the water.
I let it soak for 20 seconds and then took it out with the help of a tweezer.
I dipped my nail in the water and carefully slid the decal on to my nail. It was pretty easy and did not wrinkle or anything. Since my nail was wet, I had a chance to place it where I wanted it to be and then patted it gently, so no bubbles were between the decal and my nail...
This photo was taken in a little hurry... :) Anyway, I repated the same things for my thumb as well, here are more detailed pictures... :)
