Colorizing your world, one digit at a time

I love playing with water decals from Born Pretty Store. The online store sent me a few items for review and this design intrigued me. I have always loved mandelbrot designs and this one is super colorful. Trippy! Let me state that it did challenge me. I would have liked to see this sheet larger since it’s a continuous design but it’s so gorgeous, I think it’s most useful as an accent nail art. Let’s take a look.

Item 191 Item ID 17693 Water Decals for full nail. I used it over the purple but I would recommend using it over white to make the colors stand out better!

The size of the actual useable decal is just over 2.25" by 2" so if you wanted to do all ten fingers, you might want to pick up 2-4 sheets depending on length and width of your nails.

Conclusion: I like water decals. But these were trickier to work with than those with single objects you cut out. They are currently only $1.92 US. Since this type of continuous design makes you cut the portion you want to use on your nails, and the sheet as you can see isn’t enough for a full mani, I’d recommend using it for an accent nail to get your money’s worth. That way you can cut this sheet in a few choice pieces. Also, since these are not your typical single step and repeated type, like a rose or a starfish, etc., on the sheet, it is a bit more difficult to place and trim. They tend to want to wrinkle if you don’t work fast. I used a thin coat of topcoat, then place, trim and topcoat again. Also, my topcoat wanted to turn the decal into jelly at the ends but I trimmed that off.
