Hello, everyone! It's Thursday and I noticed that this is my second post this week. I guess I became I bit lazy blogger when it comes to writing, because this week I made a lot of photos for blog (makeup tutorial as well), edited a lot of photos, but then I'm just not in the mood for writing. But for today I decided to show you my nails. Some people said under my giveaway post that they'd like to see Born Pretty Store review and because they send me some stuff for nail art two weeks ago, I'm showing you water decals today.
I got some gorgeous feather water decals in orange-purple and yellow-green shades (1737) and I really like them. I haven't try water decals before and although girls are saying that they're easy to apply, I have to admit I didn't expect such an easy application. As a base for these I decided to use nude nail polish - OPI Did You 'Ear About Van Gogh. I though that nude shade will be the most neutral for those color combination and it definitely looks very nice.
Here are quick instructions how to apply water decals:
Step 1: Apply your nail polish and let it dry completely. Luckily this OPI polish drys fast, so after 15 minutes I could use water decals without ruin the manicure.
Step 2: Take water decals out of the packaging, cut out each pattern you'll use and put it in the water for about 15 seconds (I helped myself with tweezer). They recommend you to have them in water for about 10 to 20 seconds, but I think 10 seconds is too little because after 10 seconds they didn't transfer on nails comletely, but around 15 seconds is enough. Of couse you can have them in water longer if you're patient.
Step 3: Moisten the fingernails, stick the pattern in position. I admit I didn't moisten the nails, I just took the pattern from the water and placed it on nails. It went on really nicely and it sticked on nail very well.
Step 4: Sop up the water with a paper towel. This step is obligatory beause there will be water on your nails and you want to get rid of it.
Step 5: For this step they recommend to apply clear nail polish and blow dry. I think blow drying isn't necessary, specially because a lot of people these days use fast drying top coat. But I recommend you to wait few seconds before applying top coat so that the pattern drys, because top coat can smudge it otherwise.
You get 20 patterns in packaging, which will last you for two manicures if you'll do a whole manicure or even longer if you'll do an accent nail. At the moment these are on sale for 0,99$ (otherwise they are 1,99$). If you're going to shop in Born Pretty Store online store, don't forget to use my code for 10% discount.
Have you tried water decals before? What do you think about these? Thank you for reading!
