When it comes to my nails, I like to try new things. Some work, many I can't master, but I have fun trying.
I'd heard of decals before, and thought I should give them a go. A quick search on ebay, and I found some different designs. They are so simple to apply. First you cut out your design, remove the outer layer of plastic and then, not unlike a fake tattoo, submerge it in water for about 30 seconds, followed by placing it on the desired position on the nail.
Once my mani was dry, I applied some cute zipper decals. This looked fine, but I really wanted to fill in where the zips were open. To do this, I used foils. To apply foils, all that is needed is a coat of glue, wait for it to dry, then rub the foil on the nail. It wasn't as neat as I wanted, but it was effective, and wasn't as obvious when not so close up, lol.
The zippers are just so cute!
