COMMENTS: I have quite a large number of rub-on decals and tattoos in my stash, so I decided to use some. The mani started with Office - I wanted a one-coater so I wouldn't have to wait too long after my topcoat to use the rub-ons. I noticed the glitter on the rub-ons I was planning to use, and decided to sponge on a little extra sparkle using Pure Ice - Busted. Then came topcoat, the decals, and another coat of topcoat. These decals came with a bit of adhesive on them so I had a harder time getting them to release from the plastic and adhere to my nail. Fun results though!
Randomly sponged on Pure Ice - Busted:
The rub-ons I used:
Action shots - with my coffee mug :
And with the Biotin pills that I'm NOT taking anymore:

This mani looks so pretty (as always.)ReplyDelete
@aaminahs mom: I stopped taking the biotin last August prior to surgery. When I started back up a few months later, my skin broke out in acne, so I stopped again. My nails don't seem to grow any differently either way.
@Melissa - MaD Manis: These are normally used for scrapbooking - so most of them are larger than nail size. They're easy to find in craft stores like Michaels and Joanne.

WOW what a lovely manicure. I love seeing your manicures, you are an inspiration. Off to search the web for some rub-ons. xxReplyDelete
You did a great job. Looks lovely. I'd love to try water decals but the designs are way too 'safe'. They seem to be almost exclusively floral and I want rivets/studs/cogs and stuff...ReplyDelete
Is that EVER pretty! So springy and I love Office! Great job. Love the asymmetry.ReplyDelete
I love these! THEY are gorgeous.ReplyDelete
