So I found out about nail stickers on the Dainty Squid blog (nail post link here). I always wondered how people got such precise patterns on their nails, now I know the secret too and thought I would share it with you 😉
I found Kaylah’s blog at the end of last year and it is amazing. Seriously, go check it out! (blog link here). I got the nail stickers on eBay (here) and they came super quick and with free delivery! The stickers are great quality and easy to use. Also, the lady who sells them is lovely and very helpful. I highly recommend this seller.
On with the tutorial…
Firstly, paint a coat, or two (depending on what is needed) of the colour you wish to paint first. I painted on two coats of the plain red first. Wait for this to thoroughly dry or the sticker will mark or pull of this nail varnish. When it is 100% dry and hardened de-sticky the stickers slightly with you fingers and stick them on as desired (see picture). Do not stick them on clothes to de-sticky as I did at first or you will end up with fluff stuck on your nails (silly me).
Next, paint on the second colour of your choice. I chose glitter red because I loveee glitter! Paint slightly onto the sticker to make sure you have completely covered the part of the nail you wish to paint. This way the pattern will be nicely defined (see pic).
When this coat is fully dried and hardened carefully and slowly peel off the stickers one at a time. When all of the stickers are removed paint a top coat to protect your nails from chipping or pealing.
Your nails are finished. Go out and show them off!
I also tried the wavy stickers out this weekend:
These are the nail varnishes that I used:

Did you already know about nail stickers? What is your favourite way to do your nails?
Welcome to my shiny new blog and a brand new year!
So as you probably guessed, my new years resolution was to start a blog. For many years I have stalked read tons of other blogs and now I feel like its time to put myself out there too!
My main purpose is to blog about my sewing and craft projects but I will also add in all the other things I love, such as cooking, movies, photography, fashion inspiration and my birds Nemo and Mr. Pickles.
Hopefully some real posts to follow when I figure out how to do everything, but for now I will leave you with a picture of Nemo!
