SWATCH: Testing the waters---Water Decals

Good Morning ladies! It's Saturday and I'm heading out! Will be in a film photography seminar later, really excited! =) Anyway. Last night I was too tired to do a new design on my nails. On the way home, I was already thinking about the colors, if I was gonna do some Konading or just freehand. But as soon as I got home, cleaned up, made desert for today, I was dead beat. Laziness got the best of me. I practically throwed myself to bed after all the crazy. But then, I remembered, I bought some water decals a few weeks back. With my last bit of energy pumping in my veins, I got up, looked for the decals, and prepared all the things I needed for the manicure.

After I gathered everything, I was completely clueless on what to do next. Only thing I knew about decals? Soak it in water, file the extra decal from your nail. Simple right? Wrong. I had a hard time on the first 5 nails. But that's ok, I was on the learning phase anyway. So, I applied my base coat, while waiting for it to dry, cut the decals, and placed it neatly side by side so I won't get confused and know which goes to what nail. After cutting, I soaked the first one in water, (I thought that the decal will separate itself from the paper, heck I was stupid), used the tweezer to get it out of the water, removed the paper, place it on my nail. Now this is where it gets a bit annoying. after aligning the decal on my nail, I folded the extra part, and when I was filing it, the decal slipped away from my nail. And it did that, a lot of times. I had to anchor my thumb or the finger right next to it so that it wont slip. Well that's the only thing that annoyed me. After placing the decals, I applied my top coat, and I was done! It took me about 30 minutes, inclusive of cleaning. It was quick and breezy! Alright, enough of the talk, I'll show you my nails =P

And a small loot! Yey! =)
