Les Nail Smiths, November 2014: Cute Animals!

Hey, everyone!

It's time for another installment of Les Nail Smiths with Michelle of Le Lacquer Hookup! This month's theme was chosen by me, and I chose cute animals. Keep reading to find out why I chose this theme!

I've been dying to use these water decals that I got from Born Pretty Store in my last order and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to use them! Nothing says "cute" like a little kitty all tuckered out from playing hard, right? Plus I know Michelle has a soft spot for cute things, heehee!

As soon as I ordered these, I knew they'd go great with a blue and white polka dot background, and I wasn't wrong! Although I got lazy with the dots after doing my left hand so you can see in the pictures below that I did the dots a little differently on my right hand.

Just to let you all know, I've never worked with water decals before. After this experience, I keep asking myself why I've never used them before! They are so fantastic for adding some nice detail to a design without spending forever on a mani. I can't wait to think of other ideas for these decals! If you'd like to check out the other things I purchased from Born Pretty Store recently, I'll have a post up soon about it all! You can click here for more details (post will go live on 11/4/14).

  1. These are so cute! I LOVE the cats on the blue background with polka dots! I never would have thought to do that! Great design!!

    1. Aw thank you! As soon as I saw them on BPS I immediately thought "polka dots!" Haha I can't wait to try some more designs with these cuties!!!
