Floral Decal Nails

Today I have some quick and fun nail art for you! I received a gorgeous set of full nail decals in a swap I did with the sweet Daniela (she owns indie brand By Dany Vianna) ages ago. I only got around to using them now! I feel bad for waiting so long as they are so stunning. I’m scared to “use up” nail decals or certain nail polishes so I end up not using them at all, which is a bit of a shame haha. Anyone recognize this?!

On my middle and ringer finger I applied the full water decals over a layer of black polish to ensure there aren’t any gaps. They fit my nails really well! To find the correct size I used this neat trick I found on Facebook (only I used a plastic baggie rather than tape so it didn’t stick to the decal). Once they were secured in the correct place I applied top coat over the top and once it fully dried I gently buffed the edge of my nail to file off the excess. Then I added one more layer of top coat to seal in the free edge.

I tried to find some complimentary colours to the decals in my stash, on my pointer finger I used NCLA Laurel Canyon Lolita and on my pinkie I used LVX Callais. That baby blue is just to die for! The formula is great too. I also added some small square 2mm studs from Born Pretty Store to add some detail.

I could have sworn these full nail decals were available at Born Pretty Store at some point, but right now I can’t seem to find them on the website. If anyone does find them, feel free to let me know and I can put up the link! In any case, big thanks to Dany for these beautiful decals. Hope you like the manicure!

    These are so pretty! Besides the colors, I think they look more like fireworks from a distance. Maybe they can pull double duty! ;)
