I meant to have this post up earlier this afternoon, but... I got side tracked. On the flip side, I re-did the layout of the blog! I wanted something clean/professional looking while still being whimsical and fun. It's a work in progress (any thoughts or suggestions are welcomed!). Anywhosy, on to the nails!
I did this manicure almost 2 weeks ago. I've fallen very behind in posting because life has gotten in the way, but that means that I have a nice store of mani's to pull from...
Colors Used: Daisy Nail Lacquer - White Diamond, Orly - Shine On Crazy Diamond
Sometimes you've just gotta keep it simple you know? I picked up the nail tattoos at H&M for about $4. It came with a variety of designs on 1 sheet. The tattoos can be used on both skin and nails.
I started with 2 coats of my white polish and I let it dry completely. I then peeled away the plastic cover, placed the tattoo on my nail at the desired angle and, with a cotton swab, I dabbed water onto the paper backing. If you've ever put on fake tattoos as a child, then you're familiar with the process.
I topped each nail with my Orly glitter and top coated. 'Twas a cinch!
I think this is the first time I've ever really enjoyed a bow on my nails. I like that it looks like a bow and not a crazy mess haha.
Has anyone else every tried nail tattoos or water decals? Do you have a brand that you recommend?
Until next time!
