I recently bought some water decal nail transfers from ebay(see the store here) and I think they are amazing, I've never seen anything quite like them before. I ordered a few different designs from the seller; Leopard print hearts, pretty bows, small hearts (see pic above) and my favourite ones, the geisha girl design that I've based this tutorial around. The seller had loads of different designs it was hard to choose which ones to buy. I will definitely be going back for more because I'm so impressed, they were only £1.99 per strip! I ordered them one day and they arrived the next so how about that, um Totes Amaze I say ;-)
First of all paint your nails a base colour and leave to dry.
The decals come on a sheet in different sizes, so bigger one for thumb nail etc, you will need to cut out one picture so it roughly fits the size of your nail.
I used a pair of nail scissors to cut around the design.
You then need to place the decal into water for a few seconds.
The backing paper just slides off.
I used a pair of tweezers to place the decal onto my nails.
Here is the finished nail, unfortunately I couldn't photograph myself putting it onto my actual nail as my husband had gone to bed and I couldn't the picture and hold the tweezers, believe me I tried! Don't worry it is easy, once it's on the nail just slide it around a bit until it's in the position you like.
Leave them to set for a couple of minutes and then paint with a clear topcoat I used two coats of a Boots No7 one. Here is the finished result, I think they look amazing, I had so many people noticing them and asking me how I did them, so here you go! Hope you like them as much as I do :-)
Have you tried these before, if so which designs do you like best?
