Flower Water Decals

Products sent to me for review

I’ve been given the opportunity to review these water decals from an online store called Nicole Diary.

The water decals work just like other water decals – you paint your nails a solid color (I almost always choose white), then you cut out the decals to the size and shape of your nail. You remove the protective film from the image, and soak it in water for 10-20 seconds. Then, you slide the image off the backing paper and place it on your nail. Cut off any excess decal and finish with a layer of top coat. A quick and easy way to get a nice, intricate manicure with minimal effort.

In contrast to some of the decals I’ve tried previously, these are significantly thinner and more sheer. With some of the other decals, a quick, uneven coat of white polish underneath was enough, but with these, I’d definitely recommend taking some time to apply the polish and making it look neat, because it’s gonna show through. The advantage to the thinness is that if you didn’t cut it precisely to size or apply it crookedly, you can easily soak it off your skin/cuticle area with nail polish remover – something that would be considerably more time consuming with thicker decals. They also need less time in the water before they are ready to be peeled off, which is a definite plus.

When you apply them, you have a few tries to apply them right – it is not until you press them down on your nail that they stick. This is good for a straight application, but I did manage to pull them off before pressing them down, because they stuck to my tweezers, and I had to try again. That’s really a matter of practice, though.

You can buy them in their Amazon Store or their Aliexpress Store. These ones are number 30 (direct link). They have a big range of nail art items, water decals, stamping plates, pigment powder etc.

You can use the coupon code Na2016 – leave it in the order note and you will get a small gift with your order.
