Press Sample Purchased by Me
Morning! Hope you've been having a lovely weekend :) I had a significant break in my nails and had to chop them all down to super nubbins! I still have a few posts with my longer nails that I haven't posted yet so over the next little while there may be a mix of long nails and nubbies. Todays are of the nubbin variety.
I recently received these water decals from Born Pretty Store to review. There are 11 different kinds of feathers on them, so an insane number of possibilities for manicures! For these nails I chose to use the white feathers.
I used Essence Walk On Air on all my nails except the accent, which was NYC Lexington Yellow. Before I polished my nails I cut out the decals and removed the plastic covering on all of the decals. Once my polish had dried completely I took these tweezers and picked up the decal and immersed it in water for 20-30 seconds. Then I took the decal out of the water and slid it off the paper backing onto my nail. There is a window of about 15 seconds before the decal will stick so you can move it around to make sure you like the positioning. I did this on all of my nails until I had the desired look!
Water decals are generally easy to use and can be really visually striking. I could never freehand a feather to look this good, and in almost no time! I often forget about water decals because I love freehanding so much, but I'm really glad I tried these out! What are your thoughts on these decals?
This set can be purchased here from Born Pretty Store for $4.73, considering you get 11 sets of feathers and more then enough for 2 manicures putting a decal on all 5 nails for each design, I'd say that's a bargain. Remember to use my 10% off code SA7X31 for even more savings!
