After watching more tutorial videos on how to apply full coverage water decals, I decided to give the look another try. Even though I feel they're much harder to apply than nail polish appliqués, I did learn a little trick this time around to make it easier. I then drew on some linear art with a nail art pen from Sally Hansen, because I love the print on floral idea from Nina (of Nina Nailed It). Check out the pics below!
The number one thing that gave me trouble the last time I used these were how they kept sliding off before the water dried. I learned from watching the videos I found yesterday that what really helps with that is painting on topcoat right away, so that it melts the decal to your nail. That made a huge difference.
I found these at Daily Charme, but there's lots of places where you can find something like this, including the Born Pretty Store. I like how these turned out, but I'm honestly not in a hurry to do something like this again. I'm just so used to nail polish strips and how much quicker they are to apply. We'll see... Maybe I'll give them another go in the future. So, what do you think? Have you used water slide decals for a full mani before? See ya next time!
