If you’re a cat lover, and possibly also a nail art lover, you’re gonna love this post! When I got these cat nail decals in the mail from the Born Pretty Store, I was very sceptical. I thought I would never wear 10 different cats on my nails, I would only use one or two as an accent nail or something. But then one day, suddenly I felt the need to wear cats on all ten fingers! And surprisingly, I gotta say, it looks awesome!
Nail decals are like temporary tattoos that you soak in water for 10-20 seconds before peeling them off the backing paper and placing them on your nail.
Usually, when you get a sheet of nail decals from the Born Pretty Store, you get enough for one round of nails meaning ten decals. But in this particular one, you get enough for four manicures! There are four different patterns with five different cats in each.
Now, I gotta say, these are pretty big. I don’t have the biggest nails in the world, but I definitely don’t have the smallest, either. I had to be pretty creative when cutting these to size so I could get as much of the image on as possible. I also didn’t stick to the ‘guide’ as to which nails you should put each decal on (see how they differ in size ranging from the smallest for your pinky to the biggest for your thumb?) because my ring finger and middle finger are bigger than my pointer, so I interchanged those. I could definitely see how some people could have trouble fitting these on their nails.
I’d planned to use a full set for both hands so that my hands would look alike and I would have five different cats on my nails, but after doing my left hand, I wanted to mix and match so that all ten fingers would be different. I used the ones at the top left corner and the bottom right corner.
I apologize for not showing the thumbs, but I just cannot figure out the thumb-shot without posing awkwardly.
I am so surprised at how awesome I actually think this looks! I usually like abstract manicures the best, but I’m definitely gonna use all of these up!
