Hello Sunday! What are you up to? I'm sitting on the couch taking a house cleaning/laundry folding break while I snack on left over s'mores dip and watch the USA vs Japan pre-game show. I'm so excited for this game I am considering skipping my own game so I don't miss anything. So before that game starts I wanted to share some awesome nail vinyls that I received recently. You Polish recently released Mommy & Me nail decals that are for (as the name implies) mommy and littles nails! My little, Naomi, who has been shared on my blog and instagram many times, LOVE having her nails painted. She always wants me to do designs and stickers and glitters but her nails are so tiny that nothing ever fits. When our mail arrived and and I showed Naomi all the tiny decals: mermaids, stars, hearts, cupcakes, she was so excited! These Mommy & Me vinyls are available now. Let's check out some of these vinyls!
Here are my nails using the Mommy & Me vinyls. I picked out a mermaid and wavy lines to create a beachy look. I found the vinyls very easy to use. I stuck the wavy lines to the back of my hand to get a little of the stick off, then applied them to my dry-paint nails. I painted a over the vinyls and removed them while the paint was still wet. The design came out perfectly! I think it's actually the first time I've had such success using vinyls! I then tried the mermaid. I had a little holo sponging on my nail and placed the mermaid over that sponging. I painted over with a dark blue jelly - which was nice because you could still see the sparkly holo underneath. I used tweezers to lift up the mermaid tail and pull off the sticker, which I'll admit wasn't the easiest feat. Maybe I am just supposed to leave the sticker on my nail? Regardless, I was able to get the sticker off and I LOVE how it turned out! I added a little shell to the bottom of my nail by the mermaid, which I picked up at my local beauty supply store. I let my nails dry and finished it off with topcoat.
Polish used: Echoes Polish I'm Trouble, You Feel The Ground Shake? and Cool And Collected. OPI Indigo Motif.
And here are Naomi's nails! Her nails are so tiny I didn't think there would be vinyls or decals that would fit but You Polish proved me wrong. Naomi wanted an assortment on her nails - the long strips and the shapes. So we did just that. I can't remember what we painted her nails with to be honest, but as you can see we used; wavy lines, zig zags, a bow, a mermaid, a cupcake, a heart and a butterfly. The longer strips - wavy lines, zig zags & bow were easy to use and pull off. They are so tiny that I think the design got a little lost in the polish. The other tiny stickers - heart, butterfly, cupcake, mermaid, were just to tiny that I didn't even attempt to paint over them and pull them off. And Naomi was completely happy to have the stickers on her nails.
