Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Weekly Nail

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Supplies used...
American Apparel Hassid
Modicure Nail Stickers
Seche Vite as a top coat

So, this is my second shot at using the Modicure nail stickers (see the first time here) I'm still pretty unimpressed with the quality of them but I can't deny how awesome these look. I had planned on using them on every finger but these things are so easy to mess up. Even after they're on they're not safe from disaster until you've applied a top coat. With the Sally Hansen nail stickers if one is too big you can just use a cuticle stick and basically trim away the excess sticker after it's been applied. It's a great little trick because it's kind of hard to find a sticker that fits each nail perfectly. But I learned pretty quickly that doesn't work with these. I tried on a few nails and each time it ripped the sticker toward middle of my nail which is why I had to remove the stickers completely from some nails and had to paint a stripe of black down both of my thumb nails (luckily that ended up looking kind of cool!)
Hope you have a lovely Sunday!
