Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I spent some time with my boyfriend's family and went to their County Fair which was a lot of fun. I ate way too much fair food, but it was all worth it because it was delicious! Plus, it was nice to just get away for a couple days and spent some time hanging out with his family. But now, it's back to reality.
To brighten up this Monday, I have a fun post for you today! This month is Technique month in the NCC, so I decided this would be a perfect opportunity to share my review of Born Pretty Store's feather water decals. I love water decals, I think they are such a fun and easy way to create a striking nail art look.
Here's a look at the entire sheet of decals. This one retails for $4.73 USD, so I think it's an amazing value!!
These instructions weren't as funny as the other water decals I reviewed from BPS, lol! The only thing I do differently is I don't blow dry my nails, I just let them air dry.
I wanted to try a couple of different colors of feathers, so for my left hand, I started with a base of Zoya Zara - such a gorgeous light purple with a strong gold shimmer!
Then, I picked a set of decals and I cut them from the sheet, so they would be easier to cut out individually. I chose these black feathers because they had little purple dots that matched my base polish really well!
I followed the instructions listed about, and here is how it turned out!
With topcoat, you couldn't feel that the decals were there at all - they lay completely smooth on the nail. Which is saying something, because my nail beds are very curved, and I have a hard time getting anything to lay flat.
For my right hand, I chose a base of Hard Candy - Crush on Caribbean. I love the finish of this polish! It's a super shiny turquoise foil/metallic.
I went with the yellow feathers for a nice contrast.
I love how this came out! This proves that water decals are so easy, you can even apply them perfectly with your non-dominant hand. :)
So, there you have it - my first "Technique" post of the month! What do you think of water decals? I'd love to hear about your experiences with this technique!
