I Heart Nail Stickers

Hello lovelies, just wanted to do a quick post on my current nails. I go through phases where I really want to experiment with designs and other times I am happy as long as they are neatly painted in a nice colour! This week I have used my nail stickers to create something a little bit different as I have much more time on my hands with exams out of the way and also wanted to do them for my night out last night. 

My newest Essie purchases: Lovie Dovie & Watermelon....LOVE them both.

I already had my nails painted in Essie's Watermelon the day before because nails have to be completely dry before the stickers are stuck on. I have talked about the stickers before here but briefly they are only used as a template and are removed afterwards to reveal the design. You can get different shaped ones and I got a pack on eBay with assorted shapes. I stuck on the stickers one by one and painted OPI's Designer...De Better on over the reddy pink colour, I then peeled off the sticker off every nail and painted clear top coat over the top to make them realllly shiny and to prevent chipping! I don't want these bad boys chipping after this effort! I started off by doing a design on my thumb, middle finger and little finger (below) but then changed my mind and thought I would do each nail differently and the result is that I absolutely love them! Definitely inspired me to use the stickers more often.

I love both these colours and together I think they look really cool, the stickers can be used to create designs with any colours but I love the metallic. Designer...De Better is a champagney coloured metallic nail varnish with tiny bronze flecks in it when you look closely.




Nail Varnish used: Essie Watermelon and OPI Designer...De Better

  1. These are adorable! I love the idea of nail stickers, especially for someone like me who has a shakey hand so intricate nail art can be hard! xxx

    1. Yeah I know what you mean! I wouldn't have been able to get such defined shaped with just a nail art brush or anything so I think this is such a good way to spice up your nail varnish a bit! They are still going strong after 2 days and usually I'm bored by now! Thank you for your comment xxx

  3. Your nails look fab! I have been eyeing up nail stickers lately but haven't had a chance to go for it yet, but you've definitely encouraged me to do it. Also, I love Essie nail varnish. How great is it that they've started selling them in Boots and Superdrug?!
