Christmas nails

I received one item in exchange for an honest review. 

I'm going to a Christmas party today so of course I had to deck out my nails. I was short on time but I painted them last night. Unfortunately some of the peel off stuff messed up my nails when I was cleaning it up. I snagged a few just in case pictures before bed anyway. Fortunately my nails weren't too bad this morning. I just had to do a few minor touch ups. I also had to do a second layer of top coat. My nails obviously weren't dry last night because they had that matted look you sometimes get when you sleep with not quite dry nails. I'm not really sure why that happens. Whatever the reason at least now I have a second level of top coat on my nails for extra protection. Hopefully they dry soon. I really need to invest in a good fast drying top coat. Anyway I'm rambling. 

For the manicure I used two coats of Zoya Logan and Blaze on every other nail. I let them set up a bit then applied these snowflake water decals I got from Born Pretty Store. 

These decals were very easy to apply and so much fun. There are different size snowflakes plus some like little twinkles and little snowballs. The little designs are nice for filling in gaps and just adding some nice little detail. 

I was worried about these melting with topcoat as I've frequently had that problem with other water decals. These must be better quality because I had zero melting. None. It can't get better than that. I love these because they're perfect for when you want to do something special but you don't necessarily have the time or talent. I had planned on trying to draw some snowflakes on my nails to go along with these decals but I just ran out of time. So I'm just happy I was able to do something so simple yet festive and fun.

These decals are $1.65 for one sheet. There are a few different designs, all with snowflakes but one sheet has reindeer and another has mistletoe. Fun designs for this time of year :)  You can find these decals and the others described on Born Pretty's Web site.
