Bright Orange Flower 3D Nail Decorations from Charlies Nail Art

PRESS SAMPLE
Here's a couple of my manis using Bright Orange Flower 3D Nail Decorations from  Charlies Nail Art.  The neon orange flowers have 5 faceted petals and a clear rhinestone in the centre.
So here are my manis.  On the left are blue and orange stamped nails with sponged edges & on the right I've used water marble with contrast black nails to make the orange flowers pop.  The flowers have a flat back.  I applied them while my top coat was still wet however nail glue might be a more secure option.

NailHugs Nail Appliqués - Advintage

PRESS SAMPLE
I've been nail blogging for 5 years and thought I knew most nail art applications.  But 2 weeks ago I came across a suggested post on Facebook for NailHugs which are nail appliqués. The post included a video of the application of the transfers which I'd never seen the like before.  With NailHugs having over 95K likes on Facebook and over 10K followers on Instagram, where have I been!  I was intrigued with NailHugs and I contacted them to discover what they were all about.  I was pleasantly surprised when Alexandra contacted me and asked me to review NailHugs.  NailHugs is Alexandra's brain child and she designs of all the patterns.  NailHugs are based in Canada and offer FREE worldwide shipping.  Within a few days I received my NailHugs.  This is my first attempt and got the hang of the application very quickly.  I've made my own video which is below and for a first attempt I think I did pretty well.
So first up, a photo of my manicure using 'AdvintageNailHugs over a red and pinked sponged base.
The twin pack contains 2 strips of NailHugs, full instructions and a birchwood/orange stick

The reverse of the NailHugs provides the design's name and handy cut out guidelines

Simply cut out a decal to fit the size of your nail, I cut out quite a big piece but I will know for next time.  Gently peel from the white backing paper and apply the applique tacky side down to your dry nail.  Rub the top of the clear protective layer to transfer the design onto your nail.  Clean up and seal with regular or UV top coat (make sure you top coat all around the free nail edge and use 2 coats if using regular top coat).



The NailHugs Advintage Twin Pack Appliqués are currently reduced during July at $9.22 USD / $11.95 CAD / £6.95 GBP / €8.33 EUR with FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

Rainbow Bubble Water Decals from Born Pretty Store

PRESS SAMPLE
I've seen nail art demos for water colour nails but haven't tried the technique as it looks quite involved and time consuming.  So when I saw these Colourful Rainbow Bubble Water Decals I was pleased to create the water colour effect in a quick and simple process.  The decals are from Born Pretty Store and are available in 3 different colours.  The sheet contains oodles of decals and a rainbow dotted border which can also be used.  I layered 2 - 3 decals on each nail; the pale pink base is OPI Let's Be Friends! from the Hello Kitty collection.
If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go, simply soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails and seal with top coat - done!  Check out my video below for a demonstration.
If you like water decals or want to get into water decals more, check out the Facebook group I've just created called Wonderful Water Decals. To the pics!!!!
 
 
 
 
 The Colourful Rainbow Bubble Water Decals are currently $1.49 / £1.05 / €1.35.   You can also use my 10% discount code HXBQ10 which gets you 10% off full priced items. Check out the Born Pretty Store  website for loads of cool nail art goodies.
