Nail Art Society: Habit Denim Kit!

Good morning loves! Today I have another amazing Nail Art Society kit to share with you! For this one, NAS has partnered with Habit Nail Polish for a fun denim-themed kit. Subscribers will receive one Habit nail polish in either Belle Epoque, which I received, or a darker blue. Subscribers will also receive 2 sheets of zipper water decals as well as an orange stick. This whole kit came wrapped in the cutest denim print tissue paper - such a nice touch! :)

 I wanted to add some more color to the mani, so I chose a darker blue (Sinful Gel Shine - ) that I thought might be somewhat similar to the darker blue that some subscribers will be getting in this kit! Now for the best news - Belle Epoque is actually a ONE COATER. I ended up doing two coats out of habit and because I wasn't careful enough with application, but one coat is actually enough for full coverage. :)

The cool thing about Habit is that is actually has myrrh in it! I thought that was really cool - and completely unique! I had never heard of that before. The packaging explains that the myrrh is a natural nail strengthener, and also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. What all that means is that it's good for your nails without any harsh chemicals! Add that to the fact that they offer gorgeous shades with perfect formulas, and I'm hooked! :)

I will warn you - though the packaging says stickers, these zippers are most definitely water decals. I sat there for a good few minutes trying to peel them off before I realized, haha! Once I figured that out, they were easy to work with. I simply cut out the specific decal I wanted, dropped it in a shot glass of room temperature water for about 30 seconds, took it out with nail art tweezers and the decal slid right off onto my finger. I like to wet the nail that I am about to place the decal on first, so I can easily slide it around and get it where I want it. Add a layer of topcoat to seal the decal in, and you're good to go! :)

I think the gold zippers would go well with the darker blue polish, but I wanted to test out the silver ones here. I've seen some other nail artists use these decals over a sort of "distressed" denim look, so I definitely want to try that too! Really, I think there are a ton of possibilities with this kit. :)

All in all, I thought this was an awesome kit. I love the decals and see myself getting a lot of use out of them. And, I'm totally in awe from my first experience with Habit. I'm dying to try some of their other shades, specifically Sweet Life - Habit's take on Radiant Orchid! Love it. :)
So, what do you think about this mani? Have you tried Habit? I'd love to hear below! And if you would like to subscribe to Nail Art Society, click here!
