I started with these and used the smaller flowers hiding at the bottom right corner of this photo:
They're actually a continuous strip, so I counted out 10 and cut the section out:
Look - they printed the image on the back to help you with placement! Awesome!
Separated them with small scissors - 10 pieces.
And I have my brush and water ready:
Remove the protective layer from the front, turn upside down and stick to nail (yes, it has adhesive, this is why it would not work to apply it like a water decal)
I then use the brush to wet the backing so I can shape the tattoo backing to my nail - sticking the tattoo to my nail in the process.
After a little while (less than 30 seconds), the wet backing releases and slides off, leaving the tattoo on your nail:
Here all the nails are done. Let them dry completely.
Then add a nice thick layer of topcoat to seal them in:
I later added some microbeads:
After a final coat of topcoat to seal the beads:
I absolutely love this mani! I just took it off too, but it was still intact. Gorgeous payoff for a few simple steps! I'm so glad I can use these and rub-ons as alternatives to konad/fauxnad stamping!
