Easter water color nails with KKCenterHk water decals

I received this item in exchange for an honest review.

So tomorrow is my birthday, and St. Patrick's Day is just a few days away but today I'm wearing Easter nails! Yep, I'm early on a manicure for once! :P

I received some water decals from KKCenterHk to try out, and they're Easter themed. So I thought it would be a lot of fun to break out my watercolor paints and paint my nails sort of like Easter eggs. The decals I received are item number N.NAIL Easter Water Decals Nail Art- WDBLE406 [NNAIL-WDBLE406]

I don't have a nice off white polish, so I started with one coat of Chrome Girl Between the Sheets and topped it with one coat of Birthday Suit. Then I just painted on some water color.. which I might add, is kind of neat because if you don't like how it comes out, you can just wash it off and try again.

I found these water decals to be quite fragile. I had to try I think 4 or 5 different top coats before I found one which was usable. Unfortunately, most of my top coats seemed to dissolve these decals at least a little bit. My LA Splash top coat ate the decals completely! I mean literally, there was nothing left on my nail when I was finished trying to use it. In the end, OPI RapiDry Top Coat worked the best, but I still did have a little bit of deterioration even with it. Here you can see where I was practising with my different top coats a little bit before I found one which worked.

I don't think you can tell, but the orange bunny in this picture actually lost half an ear and I had to put the pieces back together again. So not just the top coat made these fragile, they apparently rip easily, too!

 I'm really happy with how this manicure turned out, I'm just sad the decals didn't hold up a bit better. 

I especially like how these two nails turned out.. except my poor little bunny is missing a chunk out of his head! Poor bunny.
