Wednesday, 31 August 2016

Hello!  Every Wednesday for the next few weeks I'll be sharing some fun nail art/manicures using water decals - today I've got some cool full nail decals from bornprettystore.

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!
