Pink Seaside

I need to preface this with a caveat: I did not pick these decals. I don’t tend to do “seaside” things, I think the whole obsession with nautical designs that swept across fashion last year was ridiculous. Anyway, I was sent these to review so I went ahead and did it, and they aren’t that bad! They just aren’t my style.

The water decals here are a mixed set of nautical-themed full-nail prints. They come as two full-mani sets per package, this being the simpler of the two. The background is clear, so I decided on a pale pink shimmery base just to add something interesting.

The decals themselves aren’t bad, but they aren’t my favorite. They take about a minute to detach from the backing, but they are very thin and crumple almost immediately. This also made positioning difficult, and I found that I trapped water or air bubbles under the decal with great frequency.

These were fast to work with, but a bit harder to get down right than some others I’ve worked with. However, if you like nautical things, they make a statement…and the straight line one is pretty awesome! That would take 15 minutes minimum with striping tape!

So, not my favorite pattern, but they work alright. If you want to pick them up, you can find these decals at the Born Pretty Store for $2.99. Use my 10% discount code LY5X31 for extra savings!
