It feels ages since I did a nail post so here’s one showing off some new nail decals I ordered from ebay. They contain a wheel of various designs and the thing I love is that they are black on one side and copper on the other. My favourite designs are the anchor, crown, diamond and cross.
My nails grew so long when we were on holiday that I decided to cut them really short when we got back. I like the clean, tidy look of short nails but they probably aren’t the best for nail art!
I started with this pretty apricot shade by Sally Hansen in Sorbet. I needed three thin coats but I liked the smooth finish this gave.
I decided to try a different decal on each nail and let me tell you they were fiddly to apply! Unlike stickers or water decals, these foil ones don’t bend to fit the natural curve of your nail bed so they end up sticking out slightly. I applied several layers of top coat but still had some little corners poking out and catching on things. For this reason, I can’t see these decals lasting longer than a few days.
However, I love how these look and now I have tried them all out at once, I think I know which ones work best and which I would use again.
