Flowery nails: who's longing for Spring?

Happy Friday my lovelies! Ready for the weekend?
I am in love with this purple shade from OPI "I lost my bikini in Molokini" and today I'd like to show you a mani I did with this color using nail water decals with flower pattern from 
Born pretty store. I thought it was so appropriate for Spring (which, by the way, I can't wait for it to start).



The water decals come in a paper sheet and they're printed in rectangular shapes which are supposed to fit your 10 fingernails. On the downside I think the predefined widths could not be appropriate for every nail size, in fact they look a little narrow. 





My manicure is very simple and quickly done! I started with two thin coats of OPI "I lost my bikini in Molokini" in all fingers except the middle and ring fingers where I only used base coat. I then removed the plastic protection from the decals sheet and cut out the rectangles with the closest size to that of my nails and put them in a cup with water to soak. When the decals started to peel from the paper by themselves and float (about 15-30 seconds later), I picked them with tweezers and placed them on the nails, I pressed with a cotton pad for a couple of seconds. Finally I sealed the manicure with one coat of topcoat and placed some rounded crystal rhinestones near the cuticles.






I like very much the final result and it totally inspires me for spring! The  nail water decals with flower pattern retail for only 1.99 USD at  Born pretty store.

  12. E' la seconda manicure floreale che vedo oggi e non potrei essere più felice, le adoro! Queste decals sono favolose. Bellissima anche la base anche se... Questa collezione OPI mi sta uccidendo, mi ricorda la mia luna di miele alle Hawaii e soffro tanto a non essere più là, soooob! :D
