Today I have some water decal nail art to share with you!
LadyQueen got in touch with me again, and asked if I would be interested in picking out some water decals, and giving them a go - which of course I said 'yes' to!
I got 3 sets (you'll see the others later on..) - and decided to use the dark purple feathers first. (you can scope out the set HERE).
I started off with a base of OPI You're Such a Budapest, and then applied the decals.
My only complaint..
They all go on backwards.
Like, after you soak them in some water, and apply to your nail, and sponge the backside, you take away the paper backing, and you are left with an upside down decal - but thankfully I just quickly manipulate them with tweezers, grab hold, flip them, then put them in place! It is an extra step, and one you have to be fairly quick about - but they do work. I will have to see if the others do that as well. Because, if I am going to use something else to do nail art (ie: decals, stickers, vinyls, etc) I expect it to cut down on the extra work.. otherwise I'd rather just do it all by hand, honestly.
The plus side.. they do look really nice - though they do not last. This was after 13 hours of wear time, and if you look at my index finger, some of the decal is already gone.
For the extra work in having you flip every decal over, it isn't really worth it wear-time-wise. But, if I had some event to go to, where I only wanted my nail art to last for that particular event, I would rock these again.

That is all for today. See you all again soon!
