How to apply our Nail Decals
NailDots Nail Decals are waterslide images which are easy to apply to your own nails, acrylic nails, or gel nails using just a bit of water and a quality topcoat.
Our Nail Decals are known to last for 10 days or more!
We have many nail decals available that are not listed here, and we take Custom Nail Decal orders too!
All Nail Decal sheets contain 30 or more nail decals.
|What you need: Scissors, Instruction Sheet, Decal sheet, Small container of luke warm/warm water, towel for blotting, clean painted nails.|
Step 1: Cut decals as close to design as possible. Cutting all at once prevents messing up your nails while cutting the others. Do NOT soak all at the same time
Step 2: Place one decal in the water and allow to soak for 45-60 seconds, you may find you can adjust this time shorter.
Step 3: Pull decal from water. Tweezers are useful at this stage, but not required. Have the decal facing your finger of the opposite hand you plan to place the decal on. Place the pad of your other finger on top of the paper and slide apart. This will leave the decal on the first finger, ready to place on the opposite hand.
This is how it will appear after you slide the backing off.
Step 4: Position the decal on your nail. You may find it helpful to wet your nail first to allow you to slide it around. Decal may be removed as many times as necessary to obtain proper positioning. Rewetting is OK too. Blot dry and apply a little pressure to extract all the water from under the decal.
Step 5: Decal will 'stick' but not adhere permanently. Coating with clear polish is necessary at this time. You may finish all decals before coating with 2 coats of a quality clear polish, or do one hand at a time, allowing to dry thoughly.
Step 6: ENJOY!!! Recoating with clear after a few days will extend the life of your polish AND your decal. This is likely unnecessary if using gel or shellac.
|NOTE: Nail wraps are applied in basically the same manner. Before soaking, cut out wrap, size to nail with backing on, trim them to the width needed for your nail. Once you have soaked and removed the backing, place the wrap on your nail to the back of your nail bed. Apply pressure with towel to extract water. Gently use a file on the tip in a downward motion to trim the tip of the decal. Coat with clear covering the tip and edges well.|
My own nails, wraps put on at a campground. :)
|NailDots are waterslide nail decals which are applied directly to your natural nail, your painted nail, your french manicure, or your gel or acrylic nails. They are printed onto clear paper and have NO WHITE printed on them. Any White you see in our graphics will appear clear on your nails. The color you see will absorb any color underneath, so these decals look BEST over white nail polish. They are repositionable until coated with clear polish and have no adhesive backing. They require trimming and are not die-cut. These are NOT stickers.|
