My Birthday Nails: Dragon
My birthday was last weekend, and here's what I was wearing: these dragon water decals by Born Pretty Store.
I applied the decals over a white base, two coats of Essie Blanc. The dragon's body is not white but transparent, so a light base is mandatory. Application of the decals was quite easy: just remove the transparent protection foil, soak the decals in warm water for 20-30 seconds, remove the white sheet underneath and place them on your wet nails. It's really important to wet your nails with water, if you don't, you'll probably tear the decals. You can move the decals around on your wet nails until you're happy with the placement. Then dab the water off with some tissue and add topcoat. Since the decals are rectangular and my nails aren't, I folded the excess over me free edge and filed it off after the topcoat was dry. The edges on my cuticles I could remove with acetone.
There are four different dragon pattern to choose from, one set contains 10 decals, enough for one full mani. You can get the decals here for 2.86$.
