Well, I had apparently maxed out on my media storage space and had to upgrade with wordpress, so I missed some posts. All’s well now, for at least a little while longer!
I had ordered some flower water decals from Born Pretty Store, and at first sight, I wasn’t crazy about them. They’re basically stickers for your nails, that you dunk in water and place on. Ain’t nothing wrong with that, I just thought they might look too much like shiny little stickers on my nails. To my surprise, they didn’t! Once you remove the backing, they just blend in and look like they belong. I even had some people asking if I hand painted the flowers (maybe some day I’ll be that good). I actually loved the way they came out. I think what made me love the look even more was that I topped everything with a matte top coat – I love me some matte nails.

- Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat
After two coats of Ruby Do, I waited for my nails to dry and then placed the decals. I used two on just about every nail, varying each nail slightly. Once finished I added two coats of the big matte top coat and was finished.
I see more water decals in my future! They truly are a quick and easy way to jazz up your nails with minimal effort.
