Today I have a special review - decals from DIY Nails! Recently I’ve been seeing nail decals all over Instagram & Pinterest, which got me intrigued. All you need are scissors, water and a topcoat, then voila - instant nail art!

The decals I chose to use were Nancy Mc ‘Random.’ Each decal is super cute, and beyond unique, which were designed by the ever talented nail artist, Nancy Mc. Its suggested you apply the decals over dry nails. For my base, I used 2-3 coats of Loaded Lacquer, ‘Coconut.’ Once my base was dry, applying the decals took maybe less than a half hour. For your reference, DIY Nails has helpful video tutorials on “How to Apply” { HERE }
