Water-decal Wednesday: bornprettystore bow and flower decals

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

Hello!  Over the next few weeks I'll be sharing with your some cool water decal nail designs on a Wednesday (I've got something of a backlog!).  I've got some really cute water decals from Born Pretty Store to show you today.

I went for a gradient pattern underneath, and then added some polka dots.  I then used a couple of the bow decals and flower decals to finish off the look.

My top tips for great water decal application:

  • Paint your nails a base colour (for full nail decals I always paint a white base coat)
  • Let this dry completely
  • Prepare all of your decals in advance and cut to size around where they will be positioned on the base/sides of your nails (any overhang on your tips can be filed off)
  • When soaking in the water to remove the decal from it's backing, make sure they've soaked enough (but not too much) before removing from the backing - too little and you'll probably stretch/ruin the decal, too much and the adhesive will have soaked off.  I usually leave them about 30 seconds and then try and judge it (carefully) from there.
  • Good quality decals will adhere to your nails pretty easily and quickly.  However, when it's a full nail decal, it sometimes can take a bit longer so I usually smooth down carefully and either leave a few minutes to set, or ill give it a quick blast from the hairdryer on a (non-finger burning!) heat.
  • Once dry, apply a top coat, and rock your fingers out!

As always, these water decals are brilliant quality, and really easy to use.  Remember to use discount code MXL91 for 10% off at Born Pretty Store.
