I know, I know, it’s been quite some time that I was not able to post anything on this blog. And I’m sorry for the very long wait. My travel to and from work is killing me, that whenever I get to have time off, I’d rather lie in bed the whole day. Anyway, I’d still like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who stayed in this blog. Thank you.
For today, I wanted to show you some reviews. A couple of months ago, I received some nail art implements. As you all would have notices, I have never tried nail decals. All my designs have been hand painted. So imagine my excitement when I received a card saying that I have a parcel waiting for me in the post office. I was expecting about 2 or 3 nail decals. Much to my delight, when I opened the envelope, I was welcomed by not 2 or 3 nail designs, but 8 of them! Yes, you read it right, eight. I had a face-splitting grin.
Let me show them to you one by one. First up, the Love White and Black Decals. This sheet contains 20 assorted white and black cats “in love”.
Then I have this Bow Button Knot water decals. It consists of 10 black and 10 white “shoe-lace” like water decals. The photo does not capture the white one very well since it has the same color as the background.
I also received a “shattered glass” water decals. I am not really sure if this is a water decals. The item looks like a sticker to me. It’s not pre-cut as well, so I’m not sure how this works. I’m still finding it out.
Included in the package are three fluffy stickers: rhombus, red and gold dairy cow and black and white leopard. Each sheets contains 10 round tips and 10 square tips on assorted size. Perfect to fit all your nails.

This post will also show you a quick tutorial and a review of the Love White and black decals.
Here's what you need to start up.
- A small container with water
- Base and Top coat
- Nail polish (a color of your choice)
First, you’d need to make sure your nails are clean: free or dirt, oil or alcohol. Prepare all your tools and cut out the designs to make it easier for you to apply. I lined up the cut-outs according to how I wanted them on my nails.
Once everything is set, apply your base coat to protect your natural nails, and paint in your polish color of choice. For this review, I used Caronia Kiwi. Make sure your polish is completely dry before continuing on with the next step.
You can choose to use tweezers in picking up the design and setting it on your nails. I chose to use just my finger with the wrong side up. I find that easier. Carefully place the design the way you want it on your nails. The reason why you need to have your polish completely dry is so that you can move the decals on top of your nails until your satisfied in its position. Once your happy with the way they look on your nails, finish your design with a top coat to protect your design and add shine.
And that’s it! Easy huh? This nail design works best for people who’d want to design their own nails but does not have patience in drawing them.
What I love about this design is that they stay on your nails for a good one week. Well, maybe longer. I change my polish every week so that’s the longest they can stay. Just make sure you cover it with a top coat to make sure it last.
