Last week, I read this tutorial from All Laquered Up on creating your own DIY nail decals. I thought it was so cute and wanted to give it a try.
Here’s a little step by step:
- Variety of Nail Polishes & a top coat. I wanted to create a dichroic glass effect so I chose shimmery jewel tones and the Nubar 2010 speckled top coat.
- Nail dotting tool or toothpick.
- Plastic Sandwich Bag.
- Nail Scissors
Paint small rectangles the size of your nail with top coat onto the plastic baggie. Be sure to do a fairly thick coat.
While top coat is still wet, use dotting tool to paint whatever design you would like.
Allow paint to dry overnight.
Peel decal off and place on center of nail. Smooth out edges and trim excess.
Paint the rest of your nails or apply decals and finish with a top coat
