Born Pretty Store Water Decal Y026 Review and How To

(Born Pretty Store Water Decal Y026 was sent for review)
I have some water decals from the Born Pretty Store to share today.  I have always admired water decals.  They add so much to a manicure.  I was intimidated to use them; however after trying them for myself I realize they are actually easy to use.  
I chose to review the Classical Flower Vine Pattern Nail Art Water Decals Transfers Sticker in Y026 which had a lot of pretty floral designs.  The back of the package has instructions for applying these decals.  I started by painting my nails with two coats of China Glaze Pool Party over a dry base coat.  When this was completely dry I was ready to apply my water decals.
To apply the water decals, I used a bowl with water, scissors, and tweezers. 
  • I cut out the designs I wanted then peeled off the plastic covering.
  • I then placed the decal into the water and let it sit for about 10-20 seconds.
  • Next I moistened the nail I planned on placing the decal on by simply dipping another finger into the water and patting my decal nail.
  • I then took the decal out of the water and it slipped off the paper backing. 
  • I used tweezers to help me place the decal on my nail. 
  • When this was completely dry I added a top coat.  
I also tried adding a water decal to my nail by peeling off the plastic covering, placing the decal face down on my nail, and then holding a wet paper towel over it for a few seconds.  This technique also worked on getting the water decal onto my nails.  I found it slightly easier to apply the water decals using the bowl of water rather than a wet paper towel.  
Overall I am really impressed with these water decals.  They are much easier to use then I first thought.  I love the intricate look they added to my manicure.  These water decals lasted a long time.  They lasted longer than my nail polish.  The Born Pretty Store has a whole range of water decals to choose from.  If you like the ones I used today you can find them here.  The Born Pretty Store offers free shipping worldwide and you can use my discount code SNDX31 to get 10% off your order.
