DIY Heart Nail Decals

Hi, guys - Happy Saturday! Today I have a fun little mani that I did trying out a DIY nail decal technique for the first time.

This sparkling red polish is Pipe Dream Polish Red Light. Red Light is "made up of holographic pink, silver, and purple glitter in a red jelly base" and it is soooo seriously pretty! On my middle finger I applied the super lovely Zoya Caitlin.

Following this tutorial by Drama Queen Nails, I used Red Light to make some heart nail decals. The application took me a bit of playing around and I actually wrecked a few in the process, lol! The polish dried quite hard so the decals were really stiff, but I found that if I slightly bent them first I could get them to lay nicely on the nail.

I love the finished look and I can't wait to use this technique again!

You can check out Red Light and many other beautiful polishes at the new Pipe Dream Polish Big Cartel Shop and on Facebook. Thanks for reading!
