I continue to decorate my nails (as I can’t do much else creative at the moment). This week I tried out some nail ‘tattoos’ I had purchased a while ago.
These are very easy to use. You paint your nails as normal, then cut out the transfer you want to use (cutting as close to the design as you can). Then stick the transfer, pattern down, onto your nail. Soak the paper back with water and then it will slide off, leaving the pattern on your nails.
I think they look quite effective.
Nail varnish used was Nails Inc Kensington Base and Topcoat. (Topcoat was applied on top of the transfers). Colour is Maybelline Cool Blue.
I might try out my striping tape next.
