Awhile back I was contacted by the lovely Maggie from the new to me etailer KKCenterHK and have had the pleasure of reviewing some amazing peacock water decals! (N.NAIL Silver Peacock Feathers Pattern Nail Water N.NAIL-WDHHC045-Silver)
This was my first endeavor into using water decals and they are awesome. Hands down. Gorgeous nail art with minimal effort? Perfect when you want to spice up a manicure but don’t have the time. Before you start painting your nails, cut the decals into pieces so that you can easily grab them without worry about smudging your polish.
For this particular look I started off with a coat of my go to black creme, Wet n Wild Black Creme. Then I added a coat of three of the Finger Paints special effect flakies, Twisted, Asylum, and Motley. I probably didn’t need all three coats, but I really wanted there to be an excess amount of flakies. Once that had dried I took the decal that I wanted and with tweezers held it underwater for about 15-25 seconds. I then took the decal and placed it near my nail and slid the design off the paper back and into position! The best part about these is that they don’t dry right away, so you have time once you place it on your nail to move It around until you are happy with where it is.
You do need to be careful when doing your other hand. I happened to do my left hand first, and then when I was doing my right hand, as I pressed the decal onto my nail some of the still tacky polish on my left hand got caught on my other nail and it all came off! So I had to redo one nail. Which isn’t really all that bad!
If you would like to try these water decals you can find them here
sincerelystephanienails. Water decals are definitely something I will try again in the future. KKCenterHK has so many unique designs to pick from as well, so if peacock feathers aren’t your thing, then maybe one of their other designs is for you.
Have you ever tried water decals? What’s your experience with them? Would you wear these peacock feathers?
Thanks for stopping by! :D
