Creative musings in bright colors

All I did for this mani was paint my nails white. Everything else is the water decal! Full-nail decals can be hit-or-miss, with many being too thick to conform to the nail shape, too thin (and thus rip), or made out of material that doesn’t dissolve with acetone and thus is impossible to remove. These decals are PERFECT.

I don’t usually use whole-nail water decals because I feel like they are cheating…and honestly most aren’t nice enough to tempt me. These ones did, and they are truly wonderful. The design is sharp and crisp, and it comes with two different (color matched) patterns, sufficient for two different manis. Both patterns in this case are beautiful.

The decals took a little longer to slide off their backing in the water than ones that don’t cover the full nail, mostly because they was more decal! The base on these is clear, so you do want to use a white (or light colored) base color.

I had no trouble positioning them on my nail, fitting them around my nails, and then removing the extra decal with acetone. 100% would use again.

If you want to get this set for yourself, head over to the Born Pretty Store. The sheet is $2.99, but you get an additional 10% off with the code LY5X31! Enjoy 🙂
