Full nail water decals

Hello~ :) As promised in my previous post, here's my attempt at using the full nail water decals from Viva la nails.

I chose to use the Burberry patterned decal first. Application was pretty simple, you simple dip the strip into some water like other types of decals for 10 seconds and then gently slide it off the backing. What I found the most difficult to work with was that the decal took a really long time to dry and as a result moved around on my nail quite a bit. The entire mani took me close to 2hrs to finish, although this can also be attributed to my inexperience with applying it :P. I'd say with more experience I'll be able to do it in half the time.

What do you think of these full nail water decals? I think they're a nice change to the nail polish strips which are being released by other companies although I haven't experienced using them. With more practice, the nail decals should be easy to work with, you just need to be patient with drying time before applying your top coat.

    I had that same problem, I still have to take my time but its because i want it perfect. ... and i still sometimes get wrinkles. Some people say you can use a towel to sap up some of the water to min. the drying time. but i have never tried that i just throw my hand under a fan lol. They look really good.

  9. Ooh, thanks for the tip! Yeah, I did try to get rid of most of the water, but it still took awhile. I guess these might work better in summer where the heat can evaporate the excess water? :P
