DIY Nails Festive Decals

DIY Nails Festive Decals* - £6

For this year's Christmas manicure I turned to an amazing nail art company called DIY Nails. The owner Tammy sent me a lovely little package with a full set of their festive decals - Kitch-mas, Fairisle & Lebkuchen. Aren't they all just adorable? Now these are no ordinary nail art stickers. Not only are water decals really easy to apply but they sit flat on your nail so the overall finish is a lot more professional. You simply cut out the patterns you wish to use, soak them in a bit of water for about 10 seconds and then slide the design onto your nail. It took me a couple of goes to get the hang of it but once you figure out how to slide them neatly, it's a complete doddle. Check out these videos for more of a visual guide to application.

For my nails I used Model's Own Snow White & Red Alert as a base and then mix & matched a few of the patterns. I think the Fairisle set is the nicest overall but I really love those little Christmas puddings. There's so many designs included on each sheet so just one pack will last for ages and you can have something completely different every time. When you're happy with your design you simply seal them with a clear top coat et voilà! Easy peasy festive fingertips. You can now pick up some of the DIY Nails range instore & online at Urban Outfitters too so you can sport some sweet nails all year round. If you love cool nail art but lack the artistic ability to draw your own with some wobbly nail art pens then this method is so much better. It's easy, convenient and looks totally awesome.
