I posted about some DIY Nails nailcals a month or so ago (here), I got sent some to try and I loved them so much I went and bought a few packs of the foil ones.
Now I'm completely obsessed, they are so easy to use and they look amazing on! I posted a few nail looks on my Instagram (@zoelou_) and Twitter (@classicrouge) using these nail decals and they proved to be very popular, so I thought I would give them their own little post.
DIY nails have a selection for everyone's tastes, from jazzy sweet designs to stylish, holographic shapes. I could spend ages on their site and Instagram (@DIY_NAILS) looking for new nail inspiration.
These nail decals can be used on the skin as well as nails, and they work just like those skin transfer tattoos.
How to use -
- Paint your nails with chosen colour or leave them plain if you like and leave to dry.
- Cut out chosen design
- Soak design in the water for a couple of seconds
- Gently slide off the decal from the paper backing so it doesn't scrunch up
- Press the decal on the nail and seal with topcoat
The two packs of foil designs I have here are Making Shapes in Hologoraphic Silver and Mehndi in Gold. They look amazing with pretty much any nail polish colour- they can look really girly and feminine with a pale nude or pink shade, then really striking against a darker colour.
Here are some of the nail looks I came up with using these foil decals -
The Mehndi nailcals include a selection of swirly paisley designs, lotus patterns and different sized dots.
|These are originally gold but I flipped the decals over to show the silver side to match my outfit for that day. The nail polish I used here was Nails Inc - Fashion|
|Nail Polish shade - Victoria Beckham for Nails Inc - Bamboo White|
Making Shapes Nailcals
The Making Shapes nail decals include a selection of overlapped triangles, half moons and different sized squares.
|I used these nail decals over some Elegant Touch polished false nails in the style Jackie|
|Using the nail polish shade - OPI -Tomorrow Never Dies, with OPI - DS Magic over the top|
As you can see there are so many looks you can create with these! I still have lots more in the pack left after doing all of these and some on family, so its great value for money.
If you are a fan of nail art I couldn't recommend DIY Nails enough, I am already looking online for my next pack or 2 of nailcals.
