I didn’t post any nail art or manicure at all for quite a while. Somehow I stuck with unspectacular red nails for the last weeks, because I was too lazy for experiments. But today I’ll have something new and special- at least for me: Nail Art Water Decal Transfer Sticker! I’ve wanted to try water decals for quite some time, but I simply couldn’t decide what to buy, but the flower water decals were on my list at the top. So here is my impression on BornPretty’s flower nail art water decals:
Each set of water decals comes with 10 stickers in different sizes, so they will match you fingers. I would say they fit a regular sized finger nail, at least for women…I don’t think that the sizes would fit my boyfriends nails XD.
I chose a set with lotus flowers on it. Originally, I imagined it to look really pretty together with red nail polish (yes, I know, it seems my mind does trail around this color only XD). But, as soon as I tried the first water decal on my red painted nails I discovered that the print of the sticker is somehow transparent and the colors became too dark on top of the red nail polish. I quickly removed all the nail polish and painted my nails again, this time I chose a nude shade and it worked out perfectly.
The application of the stickers was easy, too. You have to soak them in water first, then adjust them on your nail, remove the excess water, wait until it is dry, add clear nail polish on top, wait until it is dry, remove excess water decal by simply peeling it off. First I thought that you would have to rasp away the unwanted water decals, but as soon as you put the clear nail polish on top of the water decal the uncoated water decal can be easily peeled off. Also, the instruction on the back of the package says, that you should blow dry the water decals water application and also blow dry the top coat. I didn’t do this…actually, I only dried the nails after the application of the stickers with help of a tissue and continued with the top coat directly. And it worked super well...I’ve also to say, that it lasts super long. I washed my hands, took showers, opened packages, all those things making your nail polish chip off, but this one lasts…after four days I still don’t have a single nail with chipped off nail polish (normally it takes one day for me!!!). I’m pretty amazed.
It is super cheap and there are so many different motifs to choose from. One sheet of the flower nail art water decals costs US$ 1.99. You can get it from BornPrettyStore (>>here<< for the direct link) and they offer free international shipping! Now, the best part is this: You can use the coupon code KBX31 for an extra 10 % discount!
I think these water decals are worth a try, they are cheap, long lasting and they have a lot of different styles available at BornPrettyStore. I will definitively check out some more.
