I first saw these water decals on ChitChat Nails and thought they were quite possibly the cutest things I had ever seen. So when KKCenterHK gave me another opportunity to review some or their products, I jumped at adding these decals to my list!
I literally put these on the day that I received them in the mail and got waaaaay to excited and started cutting them all up before I had a chance to take a picture of the packaging, so here is what the sheet looks like courtesy of KKCenterHK!
You can't tell me these aren't insanely adorable! Since there are 5 different skulls I wanted to use a different on on each nail to show them all off. I had also recently gotten an awesome package from Hannah of Polly Polish, which included the amazing GOSH Holographic Hero and knew that I would be showcasing that in these nails.
Gah! I seriously can't get over how adorable these are! I am smitten with them.
Before I started polishing I cut up the sheet so that 10 of the decals (2 of each design) were on their on little square. I wanted to make sure I didn't mess up my base coats while using the scissors. Then I laid them out in the order of the nails that I wanted to use them on. I also grabbed a shot glass and filled it up with water and my tweezers were close at hand.
I used Holographic Hero on my thumb, middle and ring nails. On my index I used Essence Ultimate Pink and on my ring nail I used NYC Lexington Yellow. Then I was looking at my nails and the decals and it seemed like there was going to be a lot of holo so I grabbed some striping tape and striped off my pinky and then added one coat of Essie Bikini So Teeny. Then I started placing the decals in the water for about 10-15 seconds with the tweezers, then pulling them out and pushing the decal off the paper backing and onto my nail. You've got about a 20 second window to move the decal around until you're happy with it and then it will start to adhere to the nail. These worked perfectly! Absolutely no complaints. Except on my pinky, I slid it off and I hadn't waited long enough for the polish to dry so that's why it got stuck in an off kilter position. So make sure your base colour is completely dry before you start dipping your decals into the water. I also thought my thumb was looking a little bare so I added the bones with a black creme and a striping brush and dotting tool.
I'm still wearing these beauties as I type this up and will only be removing them tonight because I have been wearing them for 4 days and I'm getting a few chips.
The best part about these decals? They are only $2.82! You can get 2 10 fingered manicures plus one extra hand for under 3 dollars? Complete win. You can pick up your very own set here! Also since I know you all like some extra savings you can use my 10% off code sincerelystephanienails
These may not be perfectly Halloweeny but they sure are awesome and I will be busting these out again as accent nails for sure in the near future.
What do you think of these cute skull decals? Will you be trying these anytime soon?
Thanks for coming by! :D
