NOTD Valentine’s Manicure using Barry M Gellys and Water Decals @iamcherrylemon

Hello and Happy Saturday! We are a week away from Valentine’s day, so today I am sharing a manicure I’ve completed using water decals. Those pandas are ultra cute! I have always liked pandas 🙂

What I’ve used in this manicure:

  • Born Pretty Water Decals BE149
  • Born Pretty Stamping plate QA86
  • Barry M Gelly Nail Paints in Guava, Prickly Pear and Grapefruit (Gradient colours)
  • La Rosa Polish in White (Base)
  • Konad stamping polish in White
  • HK Girl Fast Drying top coat

I do like using water decals for manicures as it takes no time at all. Results are impressive but probably not as satisfying as drawing them yourself. To be honest, I am not that good at free hand drawing on nails anyway!! This is the first time I am using these panda water decals, I thought the panda with hearts will be perfect for Valentine’s manicure and they are! This design is only $1.99, you can get these from Born Pretty nailart store.

I love this stamping plate, for which I have already completed a gorgeous snowflake manicure using it (see post). This stamping plate QA86 is $2.99 from Born Pretty nail art store. You can use the discount code FTL91 for 10% off on your orders. This plate has a strip of beautiful snowflakes across the plate and some funky heart shapes. It could be tricky to clean if you are using cotton balls, as the tiny teeny details will catch onto the fleece. So use a lint free cloth if you have one. Else, use a lint roller to pick up any fluff!

Barry M Gellys are great, they are ultra high shine, great for gradient nail art and they are only about £3.99 each! I get mine from Boots during 3 for 2 offers! The gradient polishes were chosen to represent lovely evening colours of the sky. I do like how they are integrating and it is dark enough as a background for the panda decals. I have used Prickly Pear (used with water decals again), Guava and Grapefruit (1 and 2) before, Prickly Pear is a very popular shade among nail art hobbyist in the UK.

 

Thank you for reading! Enjoy the weekend!

        Yes you should! Lazy but impressive way of getting a nice mani!
        Oh if you get a small stiff(ish) brush, dip in Acetone/polish remover and slowly brush away the excess. It is surprisingly easy to clean up the edges!
