Everyone seems to have been doing these recently, I have been doing these for around a year as single images rather than a full nail decal. Anyhow, this is how I make and use a full nail decal.
What did I use?
- Nail Stamper
- Stamping Polish
- Stamping Plate (Bundle Monster 411)
- Nail Polishes
- Top Coat
First thing I did was put the stamping polish on the plate, scrape off the excess, then roll the stamper over the image getting the image on to the stamper head.
Then I used MUA's Frozen Yoghurt in the centre of the patchwork
Filled in two other areas with ELF's Teal Blue
Finished off the filling in with Sally Hansen's Dorian Grey
Then covered it all with a thick top coat and left it to fully dry for 30mins
Once it is dried you can gently peel off the decal / sticker
Next I painted my nail with a topcoat to give the decal something to stick too
Next I placed the decal on the nail and pressed it down so there are no air bubbles
Once you have top coated the image and let it dry you can begin to pull away the excess. You can use acetone on a clean up brush for a perfect edge.
These are the finished nail design I came up with using this method and design
