Sailor water decal nail art with Nicole Diary

Today I have a fresh review to share with you! Nicole Diary contacted me recently and has let me try out some of their water decals. First out is this summery set of sailor inspired water decals called 39. :)

You can find the Nicole Diary shop below;

And make sure to use my coupon code Ge2016 which will get you a free gift with your order worth $2-$5! Shipping is worldwide and you can follow them here on instagram.

The decals come in one paper with a set of 10, When looking at the pattern it is possible to see cut lines for the scissor to simplify the size you need. My nails are both wide and long and I had no problem fitting my nails to it. I cut out the pieces and removed the protective plastic (this is important, if you forget, the decal will glue itself to the plastic and end up useless) and let it become fully wet by the water. I used a small plate and had less then 0,5 cm of water in it, after I pick the pieces up with a tweezer and placed them on my fully dry pre-painted nails. Since these water decals are clear I decided to use white as a base. The decals are possible to rearrange some after placement and also possible to stretch a bit and even out the pattern on the nail (as my nails are curved I need to make sure the pattern sits flat allover). It was easy to remove the pieces outside on my cuticle with acetone and a q-tip. After the decals had dried I put on top coat. I've previously had problem with Seche Vite smudging my water decals but these didn't seem to have problem with this.. As an accent here I used some Essence stickers I got on sale when I lived in Germany. 

Now picture spam, hope you'll like! :)

NCC presents: Spring dresses #1

Hi there, this blog isn't dead but have had a little break in posting, some pics have made it to my instagram though. Will make it my effort to post those manis here as well as I prefer being synked with blogging and instagram posting. Therefor I will try not to ramble too much in the upcoming posts until I'm back in phase.

Coming up is the rest of Nail Challenge Collaborative; Sweets & Candy (April theme) (This one have to be on hold for a while since I have to get into a broken computer to get them), Spring fashion (May theme) and Video Games (which is this month). Also some When Colours Collide manis will be coming up which is another challenge I do. And some in between.

Here is my first Spring dress mani for the May theme Spring fashion för NCC.
