Floral Water Decals from Nicole Diary #29

Here's the 2nd of 10 reviews I'll be sharing with you for water decals from Nicole Diary.
Below are the 10 packs of water decals I received and this review is for design #29.

Pattern #29 are full cover black outlined flowers & leaves which I placed on top of a lime green and bright blue sponged base.  Because the patterns are a generous size there's plenty for one full mani and the rest can be used for accent nails.
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 delicately detailed water decals look great!

W7 Nail Polish - Summer Fields

Put your shades on everyone! Not because of the lovely summer sun but because my nail polish is fabulously bright!  I'm wearing Summer Fields from W7 and it's belting!  As soon as I saw it I knew it was going on my nails straight away.  A bright light green which will certainly get your nails noticed and glows under UV light.  I applied 3 coats, a nice flat wide brush and generous 15ml bottle.  My camera flash has made the polish look whiter than it's fresh minty lime green so I've taken photos with and without flash, you have to see it to enjoy it's boldness.
W7 is a UK based cosmetics company and none of its products are tested on animals.

Bright Orange Flower 3D Nail Decorations from Charlies Nail Art

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.
Fancy a cheeky 10% discount?  Use WDB10 at checkout!

The Bright Orange Flower 3D Nail Decorations currently cost £0.29 for a pack of 2.  Cheap as chips when you think of how many manis you can can create with these pretty & reusable faceted flowers.  Available at Charlies Nail Art who have an huge range of nail art items.

NailHugs Nail Appliqués - Advintage

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
