SpaRitual Spice of Life & Water Decals

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I went to bed early, condemning myself to being up super early. So I watched Cheers and did a manicure.

    I dug into the SpaRituals and picked out Spice of Life, a dark red shimmer, and then looked through the water decals. There were others I got from Trans Design I did not show you in the package because they're small, and I chose some gold ones from those.

    I used two coats of Spice of Life, on coat of Diamont, then waited about five minutes before applying the decals. I was quite pleased with these - they're sturdy and didn't fall apart at all. I think they look like gold foil on the nail, and am really happy with the outcome.

    To apply the decals, I just cut out a strip of ones I wanted, submerged them in water for about 20 seconds, waited about another 10 seconds, then the decals slid around on the backing paper. I slid them off one at a time and applied them. One benefit to water decals is they're very forgiving with respect to placement - they'll slide on the nail, and if one dried out a bit, I just got a drop of water on my finger to finish adjusting it. They lie nice and smooth, much more so than any other decals. I finished them with a coat of Diamont to seal them.

    That's the update for this morning, Dear Reader. Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
