Cherry Red Blossoms

More water decals! These were super easy, and ultimately super pretty! Yay for fast manicures 🙂

The blossoms and design are from full-nail water decals that I got from Lady Queen Beauty. The background of the design is clear, so I put them over white (I could have done a very pale pink but I wasn’t sure just by looking if the background was see-through or not). The thumb design was a tiny bit too skinny for my thumb, but I just tilted it, so you can barely tell since the flowers fade out at the edge anyway!

The water decals are thick enough to be pulled off their backing without breaking, but thin enough to lie flat. These ones are quite well made! Once they were on and cleaned with acetone, I added tiny dabs of gold polish into the center of the flowers. Initially they were clear with black dots, but small amounts of glitter make everything better 😀

I do love free-handing nail art, but these would have been too complicated to do! I’m glad water decals exist…I much prefer them to stickers (they stay on better, lie flat, and the patterns are much more detailed). Go figure!
