Nail polish - Color Club Modern Pink  (accent nail) and Essie Bazooka
Seche Vite top coat
MakeitStickDesigns chevron nail decals






This was my first attempt at nail decals, and although my application looks a bit sloppy under a camera lens, I'm really happy with the overall effect. The chevron accent nail is the perfect way to spruce up a manicure. My only concern is the lasting power. The decals probably work best on larger, flatter nails. Mine are small and narrow, and they curve which makes the decal lift at the edges a bit.
It's alright with me, I'll just keep practicing.


Have you used nail stickers or decals before? Any tips?

    1. I definitely think yours looked much better! I got the pink ones above and black. I'll have to try the black ones soon, and I want to do the mani you featured on your blog and on Instagram.

  9. Try using Nail scissors similar to the link below! They help A LOT to get the decal cut just right after applying to the nail. I have small nails as well and have found that this trick is best for the perfect fit :) Also I use a lot of the SV top coat to make sure it is all covered. (like 2 coats) And then mine usually last at least 3 days. I usually am redoing my nails every 2-3 days. Lol! BTW Im the owner at Make it Stick so if you have any questions or concerns don't to hesitate to email me :) Thank you for sharing these!!!! http://www.ulta.com/ulta/browse/productDetail.jsp?productId=xlsImpprod1980053
