Water decals are a nice and easy way to make your manicure more interesting. Applying water decals to the nails doesn't require a lot of time or practice and pretty much anyone can do it. I got these über cute SpongeBob Squarepants Water Decals from Born Pretty Store and I couldn't wait to try them on.
Admit it, SpongeBob rules! ''With IMAGINATION I can be anything I want''. Hee hee, that's my favorite SpongeBob quote. On a different, but not unrelated, note - I own a SB pillow. That means I'm kind of a fan. I think.
Using water decals is very easy:
1 - Apply nail polish to your nails and allow it to dry. That will be the base for your water decals.
2 - Cut out the decals and remove the plastic film. Dip the decals into water and wait for 10-20 seconds.
3 - Dip your nail into the water and apply the water decal to the wet fingernail. Soak up the water from fingernail with a paper towel and let the decal to dry completely.
4 - Apply top coat.
I used Uma Cosmetics Rolling in the Sun as my base. I had to apply 4 coats of this yellow polish to level it out, but it was worth it. SpongeBob's little faces fit perfectly on it. I applied a coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer to finish it up.
I think I'll use water nail decals more often from now on. They're so simple to use and the results are amazing. I used non-acetone nail polish remover to remove the decals from my nails: just like with regular nail polish. Yeah, I think I'm a fan of not only SpongeBob, but of water decals as well.
