I was recently given the opportunity to review a product I hadn't tried before. It is vinyl nail decals. This seemed like a pretty neat idea, and I felt like I might need to be fancy for my birthday party, so this was my moment.
VinylDisorder sent me 2 sheets of vinyl decals to try- hearts and stars. They are a kind of shiny silver hologram print, and they were very sparkly!
Here are some lovely pictures of my nails before I applied the decals. I just used some old polish I had lying about. I was going to be wearing green, so I wanted to match.
As you can see, I am not the world's best manicurist.. but I think they look pretty cool so far...
So, yea, they are a little dull. This polish was matte, and needing a little something...I peeled off the vinyl decals from the paper, and placed them on my nails. I will say, I have never done it before, and I got the hang of it after a few tries. I wanted them all centered, but it didn't exactly go that way.
A note I will make- if you don't get them set right, it is not going to be a good idea to try to peel them up and redo.
I think they turned out pretty neat.
I ended up using several coats of clear polish over them. I think I used some old clear polish that I had. I think it would be a lot more durable with a thicker polish. The decals that I moved ended up peeling up on me- my bad. The ones I applied correctly stayed put.
I have some additional decals to use, and I know I will do a great job on them. More to come when that happens!
Thanks so much to VinylDisorder for letting me give them a try!
