Hey y'all! Today on the blog I have this mani using tribal water decals from bornprettystore.com to share with you! These were SO easy to use (definitely saying something for me since I am usually terrible with full nail decals of any sort) and I even did a live demo on my Youtube channel to show you how they work! If you'd like to see the live demo of these, click below!
Before I get into how I did the mani, let me show you how these little guys come packaged:

To complete this mani, I first started with a base coat to protect my natural nail - I use Nail Magic. Once my base coat was dry, I cut out around the decals I wanted to use to make them fit better to the size of my nail. Using tweezers, I dipped one into my water and held it there for about 15-20 seconds until it started lifting off of the paper backing. I took the paper backing off and placed the decal onto my nail and sort of smoothed it around until I had it where I wanted it. The nice thing about decals like this is that you can continue to manipulate them until they dry. I started the smoothing from the middle of my nail and outwards towards the tip and cuticle so that I could remove any bubbles. Then I molded the excess around the tip to the shape of my nail. After it was mostly dry, I started cleaning up the excess with pure acetone and my cleanup brush to make sure it was nice and neat. I added Indigo Bananas LiLoo (Lithium Loo) on my other nails. Then I top coated with Seche Vite. Here's the final result:
