Hey everyone, hope you're all well! Today I have a bit of a two in one post - one part being a Nails Of The Day post, and the other part being a review of some incredibly pretty Nail Water Decals from KKCenterHk;
The nails water decals I chose are these pretty flowers, code WDBLE952. It was a hard decision to settle on, as KKCenterHK have a ton of different designs available. You can click here to view the rest of the designs.
They water decals came in this blue slip.
Here's the finished design. I decided to paint my nails 2 coats of Barry M's 'Matt White', to help the decals really stand out. I also used my Models Own Base Coat and China Glaze No-Chip Top Coat.
I have already gone into detail of how I applied these the first time I tried nail water decals in a previous post, so you can click here to read if you wish. But in short, this is what I did to apply them this time;
- Painted my nails with my desired polish and waited for it to completely dry.
- Using scissors, I cut out the design I wanted to use.
- Holding the design with tweezers, I submerged the card with the design on in water and held it there for approx 30 seconds.
- I would then place the design on the back of my hand (pattern side up), and would carefully attempt to remove the design from the card with tweezers. If it would not easily slide off, I repeat the previous step until it slides off the card with ease.
- Still using the tweezers, I place the design where I want on my nail. If it dries too quickly and sticks to the nail where I don't want it to, I simply apply another drop of water to the nail and re-position it.
- When I am happy with the placement of the design, I pat the nail and design dry with a clean cotton pad. I make sure to only pat the design, and not to rub it, as this could move and wrinkle the design.
- Finally I apply a top coat to add a nice shine and to pro-long results.
This may sound incredibly time-consuming and fiddly, but once you get the hang of things, it's a walk in the park!
- Easy to use and apply
- Beautiful design
- Great if, like me, you wish to achieve a professional, neat looking nail art design, but lack the skill and tools to do so with polish and brushes
- Not very time consuming
- Certain design will not fit very short nails
Overall, just like the last decals I tried, I love these! I think the result is gorgeous, perfect for summer and is just plain ridiculously pretty! They were easy to do and I know there is no way in hell I would of been able to achieve the same result with a nail art brush and polish.
