Nail art addicts, this one’s for you! Using the same parchment paper technique I showed you guys before for the nail confetti tutorial, you can also create your own nail decals! This takes creative nail design to the next level for at home DIY’ers like you and I! Instead of waiting for hours for those different nail designs to dry you can paint the design directly onto the parchment paper, set it out to dry, and just walk away! Dry time could take up to forty five minutes, but what’s stopping you when your polish is drying on parchment paper rather than your fingernails? After your designs are all dry gently peel them off the parchment paper. It’s important that your designs are completely dry before peeling them off because if they’re still wet and mushy then they won’t peel off in one whole piece. Once you’ve peeled off all your designs, apply decals one nail at a time. Apply one layer of clear coat to your nail and then quickly apply the decal. Gently tap the decal onto your wet nail. Use a small cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to take off the edges of the decal from you skin. Apply a layer of clear coat over your decals once you’ve gotten them all applied.
Have fun creating your own designs! Don’t forget to share snapshots of your nail creations with us by tagging #TheBeautyThesis & @the_beauty_thesis on your Instagram posts! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!
