NOTD: Owl Nails




Happy Memorial Day weekend everyone! I'm just going to take it easy this weekend and not do very much. It's going to be a chocolate eating, milk drinking, and tv watching with a gorgeous smelling candle lit in my
room kinda weekend.

I recently got these owl nail decals from this eBay seller. They're pretty easy to apply once you get the hang of it and tweezers are pretty helpful as well. This was my first attempt and it looks pretty awful to be quite honest. My left hand looks a lot better than my right. Practice makes perfect. :)

You have to use these over a light color base or else they won't show up quite well and then apply a generous layer of top coat.  The base color I used was Revlon Jaded and the top coat I used was Seche Vite. I love having these beautiful little owls on my nail, I can't stop looking at them. Got a whole bunch of these nail decals from different sellers and will do a little haul post once I get all of them in the mail. Hopefully my second attempt at these decals will look a lot better than this. :P

  2. Hey Ellen! Don't worry about the swap; I can imagine it would be pretty expensive with the shipping costs :) Hope you're well. Your nails are looking very chic! That colour is gorgeous!
