DIY Nail Art Decals

Hello :)  I have tried to make my own decals but failed several times.  This time I really did it !!  My problem was not letting it dry completely and this time I waited overnight.  The tutorial is from Wacky Laki.  You might want to check Anutka's other great tutorials too :)

I painted piCture pOlish Black on a ziploc sandwich bag.  While it was still wet, I dropped a few drops of polishes (list below) on random spots, then I picked up the whole bag and swirled it around - NOT with a toothpick or any tool.  Be gentle !

Here's a list of the Ozotic multichrome shades I used:

504 - flashes blue, red, purple and gold;
506 - flashes blue, cyan, violet and pink;
507 - flashes green, gold and yellow;
520 - flashes red and gold.

Bottle of 506
Bottle of 507
 Bottle of 520
And of course with all those polishes, the decals were thick !!  Look at my ring finger and I messed up the tip of my pointer.  The cleanup took a long time because they were so thick. I had to keep brushing acetone on the excess to 'melt' the polish, so the black polish got all over the place - please excuse the messy stained cuticles.  Well, I'm learning as I go.  Next time, I just won't use black !

Despite the cleanup and the mess, I really liked how it turned out.  I tried water marbling with these shades but the colors never came out this strong !!

What do you think?

Thank you for dropping by :)

I LOOOOOVE that but I can't get how you did it by reading the post. It looks like water marble, but the tutorial you are linking is about sticking some paper pieces to your nails..Bah! Come check my blog!

Vicky Boombastic Nails said...

Instead of sticking pieces, you just make them fit your whole nail :) Thx Dujour and just followed you too !

I'll be honest Vicky, I don't like it... maybe it's a bit due to the lack of a pattern (that's me of course lol) buuuttt i love the color combo! So i'm in doubt around here lol. Kisses***
